Nigerian artist D'banj to perform at the 2012 Hackney Weekend Music Festival in London.
Hailing from Nigeria, Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo is an award winning singer-songwriter and harmonica player, claiming the title Artist of the Year at the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards and Best International Act at the 2011 BET Awards.
Self-producing albums in both Yoruba and English, his tracks recall thegenius of Fela Kuti and bring Afrobeat to a global audience. Also known as the Kokomaster, his mega hit Scapegoat is ever-present on the airwaves across Africa.
With last year seeing D'banj signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music label, the self styled African Michael Jackson is not one to be missed. Expect good things when he brings his charismatic performance to Hackney Marshes.
