This also came in the same week as Afrojack cemented his hands into the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the second DJ to ever do this and in doing so reinforced his position as a global music icon. On March 17 2015, Afrojack was featured in David Guetta’s single – Hey Mama in which he co-produced with Guetta. The song featured him along with Trinidadian born American singer and rapper Nicki Minaj, and Albanian-American singer Bebe Rexha. Afrojack recently announced a partnership with globally celebrated fashion label ‘G-Star Raw’ for his own line of Afrojack inspired designs that will be sold worldwide. He was also sought out by leading gaming company, Razer, to be a brand consultant on the development of future products.
