Manchester United footballer, Rio Ferdinand has disclosed on twitter how his sons love to hear Nigerian music star, D’banj’s Oliver twist. Ferdinand’s two sons, Lorenz and Tate whom he fondly calls his lil(little) men were quoted to have asked for multiple rewind of the song.
Ferdinand had earlier said months ago that Oliver Twist is one his favourite songs from Africa and it is usually on his playlist. According to Ferdinand on his twitter account, “@rioferdy5: Lil men in the car demanding a rewind of Oliver Twist by D’banj….singing along..m…”shakey bum bum”!!”
Oliver Twist is the last song done by D’banj while still with the defunct Mo’hits Records. The song has proven to be one of the best hits from an African artiste in a while with the song getting its own good share of views on Youtube.
D’banj had been reported to be in alliance with Def Jam record’s JayZ and Good music boss, Kanye West and the latter featured in the Oliver twist video. There were even reports that the Nigerian star was featured in Kanye West’s new movie. D’banj have since been made boss of JayZ’s new African brand, Def Jam Africa with his reported first signing as the talented artiste and producer, Davido.
D’banj seems to be doing nothing but better since he left Mo’hits Records, a company he co-owned with Michael Collins (Don Jazzy). A lot of people have beared their mind on the break-up, but for what it’s worth, Dapo Oyebanjo is doing great without Michael Collins and co.
