D'Banj – Oliver (Happy Independence Day Naija**)

Last weekend during Oktoberfest I met two lovely pretty Naija chics. Its funny how you see Africans in a crowded environment and you can quickly point out each other and get along relatively well. We immediately connected as I mentioned I was headed to San Jose for a Naija party. Surprisingly it was the Nigerian Independence day party to which I bet they were pleased I was headed there.

As I post this track and wish all my Nigerian friends and online visitors a happy Naija Independence day. I cant help but look back and picture the dancefloor when DJ SLIM, dropped this track. This infectious beat and D’banj vocal inspired track has been the genius of their labels viral campaign which started a while back.

Mo’Hits Records have been running a competition that would give a chance to people with talents in dancing, comedy or anything entertaining by recording a video clip of themselves or their group dancing to this Oliver song.

The videos can be uploaded to YouTube and link emailed to, as I understand the videos will be judged based on how entertaining they are.

The 1st prize is $2500; 2nd prize is $2000; 3rd prize is $1500; 4th prize is $1000; 5th prize is $500. The Top 10 entries will be part of the Official Oliver video and the Top 50 gets a FREE Koko Mobile Handset (D’Banj owns this Network or Phone service).

Funniest thing though is how infectious the entire campaign or track is – I wish I had my camera to capture the Naijas who went buck wild last weekend. I love this .. enjoy.

I am still on this Naija shit, I am uploading this song specifically for Musyoka (Dr. Dre wa Kenya). Musyoka is a frequent GetMziki user and contributor. But I am sure if all the DJ’s on this site listened to this track you will automatically think two people created this genius work. 1. Eric Musyoka (Kenya). 2. Andre Romelle Young (Dr. Dre) USA. Actually let me take back that statement because this is a freestyle so the origin of the beat may be suspect.

This is an old Naija collaboration of the Storm Record artists – D’Banj, Naeto C, eLDee and Ikechukwu, it was featured on one of the Storm Records Mixtapes. What kills me about this track is not really that the beat is phat (its a very suspect Dre Beat) but its the fact that all the Naija artists killed the track – Dbanj’s freestyle in that classic Naija vernacular that brings the tracks essence to life.

It’s also interesting to realize that the whole Urban African Hiphop movement is very alive across the continent, basically there is a Dr. Dre and a Timbaland in Nigeria as much as in Kenya, Tanzania and other African countries… it fascinates me completely

Enjoy this weekend banger here.
