Afrikan Boy – http://www.myspace.com/afrikanboy
Afrikan Boy quickly rose from the underground following a guest appearance on the track ‘Hussel’ on M.I.A.’s 2007 album ‘Kala’ and a remix of the single ‘Paper Planes’. The success of the tracks has seen him signed to M.I.A.’s own Zig-Zag label and has given him the opportunity to tour world wide with her including opening up shows for Prince and Bjork amongst others.
Originally from Nigeria and now living in London, his own material focuses on his own life experiences including visa problems, shop lifting and his proud heritage on tracks including ‘Lidl’, ‘LAGOS’ and ‘We Takin’ Ova’. His first mixtape ‘Can of Whoop Ass’ will be available soon.
Afrikan Boy stops off at Music is My Boyfriend presents on 20th June for his only planned London club appearance amongst numerous worldwide festival shows. Catch him while you can!

Buster has been the driving force behind some of London’s most creative club nights. Rising to fame with the now infamous Anti-Social and more recently Nuke Them All!

One of the main factors that link all these nights is Buster’s innovative music and DJ style.
