After burning up the clubs for many a year, Afrobeats are finally roaring their way into the mainstream.
And with the likes of Tiwa Savage leading the way, next up is Kanye West‘s Nigerian protegee D’Banj.
A staple on the music scene of his homeland, the rapper was snapped up by Ye’s GOOD Music imprint last year, and has today unveiled the video for his first mainstream release ‘Oliver Twist’.
Armed with many an African ism (see: “gari”, “omotola”), the uptempo sees the rising star fuse the West with West Africa, blending up a banger of a track.
Hit ‘Play’ on the clip above (which features cameos from West, label mate Big Sean and Sugababe Keisha Buchanan) and let us know what you think!
