In fact, such is the fierce of the project of musical art that records such as “Omunye“ became one of the biggest songs in SA.
Not content with the success however, the duo of Que and Goldmax, whose real names are Thobane Mgobozi and Zipho Mthembu respectively, set their sights on becoming the first artists to reach gold status with a strictly Gqom album.
They say dreams do come true and with all of their determination, dedication and hard work, the “Gqom Is The Future” album of Distruction Boyz has now been certified gold – the first ever Gqom album to reach such landmark.
The obviously excited serial hitmakers took to social media platform, Instagram, to share the great news and excitement with their fans. They posted:
“SOUTH AFRICA THIS ONE IS FOR YOU:
We are proud to announce that today HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE AGAIN: OUR ALBUM HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN CERTIFIED GOLD😭😭
It has not really sinked in but SOUTH AFRICA WE DID IT, TOGETHER. YOU + GOD + US = WE DID IT🙏🏿🙏🏿🇿🇦🇿🇦 We’d like to THANK EVERYONE WHO HELPED US REACH THIS MILE STONE AND BREAK THIS RECORD.
Social friends, people who bought the album, journalists, media channels, TV, Radio and EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THIS. THANK YOU!!! Next time you talk about SA records such as; Black Coffee’s Africa Rising, Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up Shandis, Trevor Noah occurring America, Black Mambazo’s unmatched success…
Please don’t forget to mention Distruction Boyz & The First Ever Gqom Album to reach Gold babyyyy🕺🏿🕺🏿🕺🏿😫😫😫😭😭!!!! #GqomIsTheFuture #DistructiomBoyzGoesGOLD.”
Well, it does look like the boys are thoroughly deserving of their bragging rights. They have not only proven that “Gqom Is The Future;” they have also thrown down that gauntlet to being a part of the future of the South African music industry.
Talk about writing ones name in gold…
