The debut album of production duo Distruction Boyz has become the first Gqom album to be certified gold. The music duo announced the milestone on social media thanking their fans for the big reach.
“We are proud to announce that today history has been made again: our album has officially been certified gold. It has not really sunk in but South Africa we did it, together. You + God + us = we did it.
Next time you talk about SA records such as, Black Coffee’s Africa Rising, Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up shandis, Trevor Noah in America, Black Mambazo’s unmatched success… please don’t forget to mention Distruction Boyz & the first ever gqom album to reach gold baby!,” the group said.
Their manager Lindo Buthelezi told TshisaLIVE on Tuesday that the pair was still in disbelief about their dream becoming a reality.
“You can just imagine how it feels breaking a record. It’s amazing and for the boys it hasn’t sunk it in. It took about 7/8 weeks for the album to hit gold.”
