D’Banj signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music label last June and has been going from strength to strength. He sold out London’s Hammersmith Apollo on the August bank holiday and is set to do so again this year!
Oliver Twist has been popular on the urban club circuit for over a year but since getting airtime on national mainstream stations like Radio 1 and Kiss 100 its downloads have gone through the roof.
The official video, shot in London, features D’Banj’s mentor Kanye West as well as famous UK faces such as Kojo the Comedian and Bricka Bricka.
