CSA announced SA’s top House DJ, Euphonik, along with fellow house contemporaries Mi Casa, have yet again proved themselves as chart-topping luminaries reaching eight time platinum status with the mega-hit, Don’t Wanna be your friend.

The single which debuted in December 2015, instantly reached the iTunes’ top 3, after which it shot to number 1 on all SA’s major radio station playlists and then became the most Shazamed song in South Africa with 5.5 million downloads.

“It’s every artist’s dream to receive international recognition. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to collaborate with award winning African artists such as Mi Casa and to take this unique sound experience to a global level,” says Euphonik, “Persistence and talent always pays off, but ultimately I’m humbled by this achievement and would not have been able to do this without my amazing fans.”

Similarly Mi Casa frontman, J’Something adds “What a milestone for us. A huge thank you to all our fans! We are nothing without people!"
