That was their biggest hit worldwide! In the Antilles they have had many more hits and a broken record of more than 6 number 1 hits in 2013 on the radios of Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire.
When Kilate was 24 years old, he left for the Netherlands with the aim of starting a solo career. Due to circumstances, he has lost his focus for a while. But nothing happened for nothing, all the pain and experience that Kilate has gained can be felt in his music, beats and lyrics.
Kilate started producing his own beats a year ago, then he was stuck for a few months. When he was released he immediately had a listening session with Adje and Nonni sorry, so he has now signed a record deal with artsound as a singer and a publishing deal with CTM as a producer. He comes with his first Dutch EP called “Oorgasme” a mix of soul rnb but still has a very commercial vibe with lyrics that touch your soul.
