“D’BANJ” aka The KOKO MASTER, Thirty Eight year old D’Banj is a Nigerian singer and song writer as well as harmonica guru, a charismatic stage performer with boundless energy.
D’Banj grew up listening to Fela’s music, “his mentor” and he has performed at Femi Kuti’s new AFRIKAN SHRINE in Lagos as well as the Shrine Synchro System’s regular London Night at Cargo. He also performed at the Black President Concert in memory of Fela’s art and legacy at the Barbican in London. Without ever turning into a carbon copy of his hero, D’Banj brings Afrobeat to life and into the 21st century with breathless enthusiasm as well as a good dose of humor.
All of his songs are based on true life stories of his own life, often hilarious but with a deeper meaning which documents the struggle of a young African trying to achieve his dreams.
