Dbanj has done very well to be in the UK top 10. The guy has tried.
UK residents may not be that familiar with D'Banj yet, but in his hometown of Nigeria, he's roughly the equivalent of a Taio Cruz or Usher. What's more, his rags-to-riches ascent to fame has been steady but nonetheless stratospheric; ditching a life in the army and discovering a passion for music seven years ago that recently resulted in him signing with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label.
As such, his first release on these shores is a confident debut. "I have a confession," he admits over a hypnotic, afrobeat-meets-hip-hop riff, before reeling off a list of famous ladies he wouldn't mind getting better acquainted with - including Beyoncé, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj ("her yansh is bigger," after all). Given it's near-impossible to resist the hip-shaking melody and bum-wobbling hooks, we can't imagine he'll have much trouble winning them over.
