KONGOS is a rock band of four brothers — Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Danny Kongos.
In 2010, KONGOS started Tokoloshe Records with their father John Kongos (a renowned multi-million-seller South African singer- songwriter). Through their label they released their new album “Lunatic” which reached number one of the Look and Listen chart. Their first single “I’m Only Joking” received 15 weeks of heavy rotation on 5FM as well as many other stations in South Africa. The music video premiered on TV 5 and is in rotation on MKTV. The second single “Come With Me Now” broke into the Top 40 on 5FM and the third single “Escape” reached #9 on the 5FM Top 40. Both “I’m Only Joking” and “Come With Me Now” are also “Homegrown Hits” on KWSS 106.7FM in Phoenix, AZ.
Linkin Park shot to international fame with their debut album, ‘Hybrid Theory’ in 2000. Over the course of their career, the band sold over 50 million albums worldwide, with platinum album sales in 34 countries and 5 continents. Linkin Park is known for a long list of chart topping hits including ‘Crawling,” ‘Breaking The Habit,’ ‘Numb’ What I’ve Done,” ‘New Divide,” and “Waiting For the End.” From surreal videography to an unforgettable, iconic stage show, Linkin Park have always boasted a visual presence that befits the power of the music.
