The award-winning musician, who is also a judge on VUZU Amp's hit reality show The Hustle, wrote on Instagram: "I was sad when we didn't scoop a Metro/Sama (South African Music Award) for ONE SOURCE but I kept the faith, well here it is, on a GLOBAL scale..."

Another highlight for Khuli was meeting one of his idols, Wynclef Jean. He explained on Instagram: "I was on my way to the Shazam talk, and ran into one of my idols WYCLEF OF THE FUGFEES. I was a little star struck but what was crazy was his reaction when he saw me, PRICELESS. He actually hollered me, he showed me love, and then he quoted one of my lines from the One source joint 'Africa's no longer riding shotgun' and cracked up looking at my reaction to that."

He said they went together to the Shazam talk, and the international singer told him about how he created the Fugees' "The Source" classic, music and more.

"He finished his talk with a dope performance and then he asked me to join him on stage to drop a verse crazy right?? I bagged so many global contacts after the show because HE PUT ME ON!!! So this is why we do what we do,to make people's lives better. If u ain't doing anything to change anybody's life, then really what's the point???"
