Rocking Stars' newly released single dubbed Crush Yame has received rave reviews after going viral on different social media platforms. The Analogue to Digital hit makers said they are surprised by the reception of the song after deciding to explore differently with their latest offering.

Rocking Stars is a group made up of Jimmy Mphoyakgosi and Oarabile Thono, who are former dancers for Mosakaso queen, Charma Gal. “Crush Yame was recorded at VGK studio and it was produced by Modo Wa Senganga. We wanted to try and do something different. Surprisingly, we managed to record Crush Yame, Amapiano single that is currently doing well in social media and the public already gave up thumbs up for. It was recorded on December last year,” said one of the group leaders Mphoyakhosi. However, Mphoyakgosi, also known as Jimmy Jimaro in the music industry, pointed out that since being in the industry they have only made one album, Analogue to Digital that was released in 2016. The duo also takes pride in having five singles under their stable. Mphoyakgosi also said they compose their songs.

The duo, who are also a couple, started the group in 2016 after ending their association with Charma Gal. Mphoyakgosi also explained that both of them came from families that liked music. He said they met when dancing for Charma Gal and became friends. He said they shared ideas and realised that they wanted to make their own brand and later on parted ways with the Mosakaso queen. Initially when they started their brand, they sang house-kwasa. He stated that they received encouraging support from the public even though they felt it was not enough. He added that they hoped for more support as time goes by. Furthermore, he said being an artiste was not easy saying it was a challenge itself because as artistes, they depended on people to make a living and without the public’s support, their lives becomes unbearable. “People no longer buy our music and it strains us. They no longer attend festivals or our shows like before but we hope that everything will go back to normal. In the past, we used to make money through CD sales but as of now people no longer want them. We therefore share our music on social media for free.
