D’Banj’s career has been going from strength to strength this year. Not only has the afrobeat star been featured on ITV’s London Tonight news show and scored a top 10 hit with Oliver Twist, he will also be appearing in Kanye West’s upcoming short film Cruel Summer.

The Nigerian artist has proved that being signed to G.O.O.D Music definitely comes with its perks by now starring alongside label mates Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Big Sean and Teyana Taylor in Yeezy’s latest motion picture, which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival on 23 May.

Cruel Summer was produced by Kanye and shot in Qatar. The story follows a car thief (played by Cudi) who falls in love with a blind Arabian princess.
