“We are excited to have one of South Africa’s most successful music outfits closing our Spring Celebration this year. This incredibly-talented pair hasmass appeal and we are expecting a capacity crowd of both young and old forthis event,” says Cecile Brody, Entertainment Manager at Sun City.
For most South Africans LCNVL needs little introduction. The electro pop music outfit, made up of twin brothers Brian and Andrew Chaplin, have blazed a trail through the local music scene since they released their debut album “Sun in my pocket” in 2010. The album was an outrageous success, peaking at number one on the RISA South African Albums Chart and later winning the twins the award for “Best Newcomer” at the 2010 MK Awards.
Over the past five years, LCNVL has sold over 120 000 physical albums; winning the SAMAs for Best Selling Album and Best Newcomer; touring the world playing alongside the likes of Taio Cruz, Mike Poser and Jason Derulo; and having their music featured on TV ads by huge brands like MTN, Playstation, Supersport and featuring on EA’s top selling FIFA game. Recently, LCVNL was named “Best African act” in a poll ahead of the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs).This year, Sun International commissioned the brothers to rework their hit, “Sun in my Pocket”, as the jackpot theme song for its new Wide Area Progressive Jackpot, SunStriker, which went live at the group’s 12 South African properties on 23 September.Each dedicated bank of SunStriker-themed slots is linked across all of Sun International’s South African casinos so that players around the country can compete for another one of the biggest-paying and fastest-growing jackpots in the land. SunStriker offers the chance to win a minimum jackpot of R750 000, and it is LCNVL’s “Sun in my Pocket” that signals that it has been hit.
