Well it’s Christmas and I cannot believe that it’s been almost a year since we started! Since everyone is home at Christmas we thought it would be cool to do a music show and who better than a pair of guys who hail from Manchester they have released numerous tracks over the years such as Mahiv Ve, Only One, and have even gone onto make some seriously successful solo tunes Mazz sang his 1st solo track called Jaan and it made number 1 In the ITunes chart before even being released and Ziggy sang a banger with legend Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. As a Zee Companion Christmas special we thought, who better to have in the studio than the boys from Bonafide!

Both of them talked all about their plans for Christmas, clearly 2014 had been an eventful year for both. Donning their crazy Santa Claus hats and talking about how they planned on spending Christmas, it was obvious that both boys love to spend time at home with the family and wind down before they kick start a very busy new year.

I had to ask them the question on everyone’s lips “now that you’ve done some solo stuff-Does this mean the end of Bonafide?” To which they both unanimously said “NO!!”

In fact they told me and the viewers that 2015 would be a great year for them as they planned on releasing more music and even announced that they would be doing a collaboration with Pakistani singer Bilal Sayeed in the New Year. Something that I’m sure put a lot of fans minds at ease.

Bonafide is clearly here to stay and for the long haul and it was a true delight to talk to them about their favourite aspects of the Christmas holidays and also how indeed they first met.

They talked about the difficulties they have endured over the years in the music industry and how blessed they are to still be here. It’s strange how so many people these days do not even know the name of their next door neighbour. But for these two it seems like moving into the same street as neighbours several years ago was the best thing that happened to them — a life changing experience and a rock solid friendship!

From all of us here at Zee Companion, I would like to wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
