During the interview, Major League DJz also hinted that they are waiting on a potential collaboration with hip-hop superstar, Drake: “But we need the big OVO (Drake) to confirm, that’s what we need.”

Over the past couple of years, they have taken the world by storm, most recently performing at the world’s most iconic music festival, Coachella, bringing the much-loved sounds of amapiano to a global stage.

Early this month the pair was in London where the arena was sold out. Taking to Instagram they said it was a career-defining moment for them to announce that they sold out at the Academy Brixton London.

“Taking piano to the world was just a dream. Immersing this sound to audiences across the globe has been a humbling experience. We knew we needed Brixton 02 Academy as it’s seen as a rite of passage for musicians and it marks a career-defining moment we will forever hold dear to our hearts.”

They further thanked their fans for their consistent love and support.
