D’banj is an extremely popular hiplife (West African Angolophone hip-hop) artist. He was recently signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. music label along with his Nigerian record label MoHits Records. He is popular for his ability to connect with African audiences from around the continent, but especially in his home country of Nigeria.

He recently had a youtube contest where he asked his fans to make videos for his new song. The results were amazing. So many dedicated fans from all over the world created really interesting videos and fun dances to put their own personal spin on the song. As a result, the song became HUGE in West Africa and has even become popular in the UK music scene.
