Salonga, in a tweet, expressed admiration for the group who recently released their 10th full album, “Epik High Is Here.”

“Thanks to a nudge, I’ve now just discovered #EpikHigh. Where on earth have I been… their stuff is fantastic! @blobyblo @realmithrajin #DJTukutz,” Salonga tweeted on Wednesday.

Tablo in response said he could not believe that Salonga has listened to their music and that he has been a “lifelong fan” of the songstress.

The rapper had previously mentioned in his podcast that he sings his “heart out” to Disney princess songs like Mulan’s “Reflection” which was originally sung by Salonga.

Salonga later revealed that keyboardist and producer Docskim introduced Epik High to her.

Recently, Tablo shared a video of Docskim playing the piano part of their recent single “Based On A True Story.”
