One of the world’s biggest deejays is showing South African musician, Zakes Bantwini, some love.
Los Angeles-based DJ, Diplo, added Zakes’ hit single single, ‘Osama’, to his playlist. Zakes took to Instagram to share a clip of Diplo playing the song during one of his recent sets.
“Thank you @diplo for showing love,” he captioned the video.

If DJ Black Coffee won’t play ‘Osama’, then Diplo will!
Black Coffee caused a stir in August when he revealed that he won’t be playing ‘Osama’.
Despite the setback, ‘Osama’ is getting airplay all over the world, including in countries such as Spain and France.
Major League set to work with Diplo
Zakes Bantwini is not the only SA musician on Diplo’s radar. Major League DJz, Banele and Bandile Mbere, are currently in America to shoot a video with Diplo.
“About to have a crazy day… shooting Balcony Mix at our big bro @diplo house in Malibu today… going B2B with @MAJORLAZER … God has truly been good.. LETS GOO..Piano to the world,” the duo tweeted on Monday.
