D'Banj Stops By Drivetime With Ellie!

The 'Koko Master' is in the UK and is coming to The Beat London!

 

DJ Ellie Prohan will be spicing things up on Drivetime with special guest, D'Banj!

 

 

Known as the Godfather of Afropop, D'Banj hit international success with his single 'Oliver Twist' bringing the Afrobeat scene into the mainstream. 

 

His musical talents have seen him bag a number of awards including Artist of the Year (MTV Africa Music Awards 2009), Best African Act (MTV Europe Music Awards 2007), Best International Act: Africa (2011 BET Awards) and the Evolution Award at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards.

 

 

One of the most acclaimed & successful musicians to hail from Nigeria, D’banj has been signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music and Sony and continues to take African music into new realms.

 

Having sold over five million albums worldwide, D’Banj will release his brand new single ‘Comment Ca Va’ on the 11th August. The single will undoubtedly see D’Banj reclaim his mantle as the King of AfroBeat and is a track that sees him battle the new London renegades from the block - The Fedz.

 

 

 

The Fedz are a daring UK collective who, with their unique blend of soul, reggae and hip-hop have, in a few short months, been championed by MistaJam, Clara Amfo and Trevor Nelson and been picked as one of 1xtra’s ‘Hot for 2017.’ Comprising 13 young creatives based in London, their renegade street takeovers are notorious, once closing down Oxford Street with 5000 people, while their music and infectious attitude are winning hearts and minds all over the UK.

 

 

Don't miss D'Banj on Drivetime this Wednesday 16th August from 4-7pm
