Diplo recently wrote an emotional about his career as Major Lazer after his African group tour. Couple of weeks ago, Diplo announced the retirement of Major Lazer shocking their fans. But as some news came by, may be it’s still not the end. The man himself revealed that he got some inspiration to carry on this project.
Diplo starts off with a reflection about the success the 3 had:
“When I first started this project, [Major Lazer], it was just a hobby, I never thought it would take me and my friends all over the world. I went to Nairobi once after a short tour 5 years and I was blown away by the energy and how far our music had reached. I didn’t know if I would ever come back but I wanted too. The third time performing here this weekend was mind-blowing. Every song we released the last two years got in the hand of this country and I haven’t seen that much love in a crowd. “
And surprisingly, at the end of his note, he mentioned that he got some inspiration to continue his Major Lazer project.
“last night gave me love to continue this project.”
Will he continue this project? As the statement says yes. If he get more feedback like this for the next couple of weeks, no doubt he;s gonna let Major Lazer just go away.

When I first started this project @majorlazer, it was just a hobby, I never thought it would take me and my friends all over the world .. I love making music so much but it was never easy for me to work on dancehall and what you might call "world music" and find a way to release and finding the audience..so I started to write more pop music. Our brand grew a lot we went everywhere and I was so proud of the project, the fans have kept me going . I started putting in bits of African guitars and drums in the records .. even with songs like cold water w Justin .. all the way up to run up w party next door and Nicki all the way to our recent releases .. I went to Nairobi once after a short tour 5 years and I was blown away by the energy and how far our music had reached . i didn't know if i would ever come back but i wanted too.. The third time performing here this weekend was mind-blowing . Every song we released the last two years got in the hand of this country and I haven't seen that much love in a crowd .. last night gave me love to continue this project , it felt like every song connected with the people in a way that i haven't seen in years of doing dance music .. i'm so lucky to be able to tour africa and keep building these relationships and keep working on bringing the world together and sharing music whenever I can. love you Kenya ??
