The young DJ and producer produced and co-wrote one of the album standouts, “Texts Go Green” alongside Drake and the rapper’s frequent collaborator Noel Cadastre.
Now, a week after the Canadian rapper released his surprise dance album, which comes just nine months after his record-breaking “Certified Lover Boy” album, Esona last night hosted an exclusive dinner at Sandton night spot Zioux to celebrate his placement.
Despite some lukewarm reviews, the album broke music streamer Apple Music’s first day worldwide streams record for a dance album on release day.
During the dinner last night, Black Coffee was pictured delivering a speech commemorating his son’s achievement.
Later in the evening, he went on to post a video of Esona playing “Texts Go Green” by the DJ booth, which Drake reposted shortly after on his Instagram Stories.
Esona is among an illustrious list of producers on the album that includes Noah “40” Shebib, Tay Keith, Vinylz, Cubeatz, Gordo, Beau Nox, Alex Lustig, Kid Masterpiece and Richard Zastenker.
