Rising talented Hip Hop freshman from Newcastle, Du Boiz, walked away with a coveted Metro FM Music Award (MMA16) in the category Best Music Video for his hit single Dope Dream featuring American Hip Hop sensation Tyga.

“I just had a DOPE DREAM” expresses Du Boiz about his win. He further adds: “I would like to thank Mabala Noise and all my fans who voted for making this DOPE DREAM possible.”

Du Boiz received his first major spotlight after signing to Mabala Noise and releasing his smash hit single titled Celebration early last year, which made it onto numerous radio and TV charts.

Following the hugely successful release of Celebration, Du Boiz returned with another chart topping single Dope Dream which has been play listed on various radio stations across the country.

Although Dope Dream sounds different from his first single, Du Boiz has raised the bar with this single as he shows his diverse music abilities and making inroads across the Hip Hop scene whilst growing his fan base locally.

Making serious waves in the hip hop scene, Du Boiz brings a unique approach to the local hip hop industry and his international appeal will place him in good stead.

With a recent collaboration with South Africa’s Supa Mega, AKA, make sure to follow Du Boiz on social media for news on the music video drop of his latest single, Hallelujah featuring AKA, which will show the country yet again why Du Boiz is the type of artist to get recognition in a category such as Best Music Video.
