What they say to cynics who call them a manufactured rainbow nation boy band?
We’d say they are not listening hard enough. (Then laughs). But no seriously, we love what we do and we know what we are doing and work very well together. At the end of the day people have their own opinions and will always have something to say.

Launching on Mxit has been a success, do they think CDs are dead? And are they making money?
Yes, yes! We are making money. (Smiles). Um, I wouldn’t exactly say that cd’s are dead. We are going into the retail cd business after the Mxit downloads are done. But for the meantime while the Mxit is going, we figured it would be a good route to take since the users of Mxit can get the music very easily and at a very affordable price. The airtime is already there, there’s no mission to it, you just gotta have Mxit and download the stuff. It’s as simple as that man.

What flavour does brother man bring to the mix?
Well I’d say I sort of “kwaitify” the whole thing and kinda like make it have an African element. The boys have got the flow and I’ve kinda got this whole R&B thing in me- then breaks into song. You’ve got to hear the boy sing. You don’t want to miss this - Watch the video now!

Watch them tear the roof off with their hip and rocking sound and hear what these twins with a brother from another mother have to say.
