“Why Black and White?” the question was posed to him and he responded, “When Black and White approached us we were so excited because if you listen to our new album Party Time it is fun, bold and energetic na iko na hiyo style. Vijana ni wa ghetto lakini wameoga. Black and White pia inarepresent hizo vitu, so why not?” states Skoko.
