AMAPIANO rising stars Focalistic and DJ Lady Du are overjoyed after seeing their faces in one of the biggest cities in the world.
The two were seen on a billboard in Times Square in New York City on Tuesday, March 16.
Focalistic, who recently featured Nigerian superstar Davido on the Ke Star remix, is on a high. He gained international exposure for the song and landed in the top trill Billboard charts for two weeks in a row.
The excited musician used Twitter to clap for himself.
“Came a long way from 2016. This is a hood dream! New York Times Square billboard! 2021, we go hard! First of many. Bless up,” he wrote.
DJ Lady Du said this was her first appearance on a billboard, and that she was fetching her crown.
“If you never believed in God, please look at my life and be inspired. I made the Times Square billboard. Check out my song on the African heat playlist. I’m officially taking my crown guys. My first billboard. Imagine,” she wrote.
She was also congratulated by Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina for representing the city.
He wrote: “From Ekurhuleni to the world! A daughter of the @City_Ekurhuleni has a billboard in Times Square, New York City! We are proud of you as a city DJ Lady Du! Sihamba ngoline in supporting you!”
