Del’ B (an acronym from his first and last names) is of a strong musical pedigree, as his parents, grand-parents, and great grand-parents were all musicians of some sort.
A stream of projects with various record labels and indie artists followed over the following years, delivering hits with tracks like Flavour's 'Shake' and 'Sweet Tomatoes' on his "Blessed" album released in 2012, continuing the streak on Kcee’s “Take Over’’, Wizkid’s “Ayo” and more.
After feedback from putting out experimental singles of his own in 2012 (Too Proud, Anywhere you dey) and featuring on hot singles with top Nigerian acts over the years to buzzy single by DJ Neptune “So Nice” w/ Davido in 2015, repeating the feat on banger by DJ Spinall “Package” w/ Davido in 2016.
Del’ B has gone in a step further to make more solo music of his own as well as collaborating with some of Africa’s best to release mainstream.
First in line was ‘Oshe’ featuring WizKid and Reminisce which was received warmly with rave reviews. Next official single was ‘Boss Like This’ a sexy-smooth Afro-pop record featuring Mr Eazi, backed with slick visuals done in Nigeria and the US.
Del’ B has drawn inspiration from idols as Quincy Jones, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Teddy Reilly, R. Kelly, Ryan Leslie, Kanye West and many others though his artistic influence crosses cultural lines and genres, all of that plus his industry experience has made him nothing short of a seasoned to the core music maker.
From a wide array of sonic compositions, he belted out his third official single 'Die For Yuh Whyne', a sweet yet bangin' dancehall tune praising the beauty of African women across the globe in relation to our music and dance, co-starring Naija pop aces Runtown and Timaya and then a fourth single ‘Boogie Down’ few months later, whilst finishing his first ever mixtape.
