D'Banj: 'Oliver Twist'
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.
