“Making music for me is always a good feeling and in addition to that making music with Dj Stavo is a fulfilment of a lifetime dream and a great thing because it’s something I wished for,” Chiwadza said.
“Growing up, I wanted to work with Dj Stavo. He was the person I looked up to as an icon and a role model so it’s a dream come true,” Nutty O said.
