Vigro Deep Opens Up About The Making Of “Ke Star” With Focalistic
Vigro Deep Opens Up About The Making Of “Ke Star” With Focalistic. Vigro Deep and Focalistic dropped hit single ‘Ke Star’ which launched both their careers and made amapiano even more accessible for other artists from other genres. The song became so popular that even saw Davido jumping on the track for a feature.
Speaking on the creation of hit long “Ke Star” and the reception it received, Vigro Deep: “Being around DJ Bucks is a blessing, we were never expecting it to be a really huge song when we were doing it. Bucks is the one who conceptualised “Ke Star.” Focalistic had started to catch the wave and Bucks gave him the lead of, like, how to do my songs. Focalistic didn’t know how to work with my sound when we first started working together, so it’s that thing of Bucks being the connector and tell him stuff like, “No, bro. If you want to jump on this guy’s beat, you have to sing like this.” That’s how Focalistic caught the wave and “Ke Star” was born.”
There were rumours you weren’t fully with the remix—which has done really well, so far.
Yeah, I was not happy with it because of how he [Focalistic] did his thing. You know, it’s that thing of he never told me stuff about doing the remix, he just told me when we were at a show in Kenya that he was shooting the video for “Ke Star (Remix)” very soon. I was asking him when did he do the song, and he just told me he’d already done it and he’ll share it with him. I just expected him to tell me before then, and the other thing, he initially removed my name from the remix—I had to fight for the feature. I’m grateful for that. I would’ve been happier with the collaboration if they gave me more heads-up, like, “Bro, we doing this with Davido,” and it would have been cool.
