The feeling you have when on stage in front of thousands of people, the exchange of energies is such an overwhelming feeling and nothing tops that. Thou I do love creating songs in the studio it’s a process I could never skip and this is part of my creative side I love and enjoy every time I step into a studio.

Twist Online : Tell us about your collaboration with Zlatan ?
K Buzz : Firstly getting the collaboration with Zlatan wasn’t easy. At the time BluBlood and myself had finalised on Hennyting Goes we looked at the song and thought who would be a good feature for the song, but only one name kept popping up. THE King of Zanku Zlatan. So I literally moved heaven and earth to get the collaboration. Zlatan came with the added flames, the added juice to the track and he basically added the cherry on the top. In all we ended up with a smash single that has been shown love worldwide.

K Buzz : Soon to release my EP in the next few months, expect some collaborations from some artists I respect in the music industry and more shows and tours around the Globe.
