Locnville are back!

24 November 2019 6:19 AM

Locnville are back - and not just with new music... the Chaplin brothers, Andrew and Brian, have relocated back to Cape Town following a stint in Jozi and abroad in the USA.

The twins joined Carl Wastie on the Coca-Cola Top40SA on Saturday, 23 November 2019, to chat about their brand new single, 'Little Less Liquor' which features Milnerton's very own Anica Kiana - someone who is no stranger to the chart after her fans managed to secure her an interview and get her debut single, 'Talk', charting on the #CokeTop40CT.

As next year commemorates 10 years of Locnville, Carl decided to test Locnville on their decade of works - playing them a second of previous hits to see if they could name the song - and threw in some curveballs, which they boys handled pretty well.
