As a Manchester United fan, it marked the ultimate endorsement for Nigerian Afrobeat sensation D’Banj when Rio Ferdinand expressed his love for his debut UK single ‘Oliver Twist’ to his 2.6million Twitter followers.
With Red Devils midfielder Tom Cleverley also waxing lyrical about the infectious tune all over the twittersphere, D’Banj is determined to make all of his United heroes – including Sir Alex Ferguson – a fan of the song.
With his ‘Oliver Twist’ dance competition having already gone viral on YouTube, the Nigerian is hoping to see Rio and co. celebrating their goals to his tune – and has told Sky Sports he’ll even nip down to the Old Trafford dressing room and teach the stars some moves.
D’Banj, who releases the single on 14th May having signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D label following a fierce bidding war, took time out from recording in the States to regale us with his United-themed football firsts.
