Shiikane is a new female group, consisting of identical twin sisters Shay, Anna May and younger sister Baby-K. They hail from South East London, but share Nigerian heritage. They write, arrange and co-produce their own songs, which are strongly influenced by R&B, Soul, Rock, Indie and Gospel music. In 2007 Shiikane moved to Atlanta GA to pursue their dream and better develop their skills. While in ATL they worked with various producers and performed at various clubs including Club Crucial (owned by T.I) and the Royal Peacock.
They have since returned to the UK and are working on a new project. Here is their album “Touched this!” Feel free to tell me what you think.
D’banj whose real names are Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo was born in the Northern city of Zaria, Kaduna State, in Nigeria. He was sent to Nigerian military school at age 11 and was expected to join the military like his father, but at 14 D’Banj picked up a weapon of a different kind; the harmonica. He was introduced to this instrument by his late elder brother, Femi Oyebanjo who tragically died in a plane crash at age 17 on his way en route Lagos from Nigerian Military School, Zaria. His brother’s harmonica was one of his possessions recovered after the crash. His incredible harmonica skills are self taught.
D’Banj is a natural charismatic, energetic and infectious performer that can hold his audience captive for as long as he desires. Without a doubt, D’Banj is the KOKO MASTER
