If the new wave of Nigerian artistes all belonged to a preppy nerdy high school, DRB LASGIDI would comfortably wear that crown as the class leaders of the new skool with effortless ease and abundance SWAGGA…
DRB LASGIDI is an up and coming musical group bringing a new sound with a fusion of Afro-Beats, Hip-Hop and R&B to the international music industry. The group, who has been making music for over six years whilst studying in England, is made up of 3 members, two dynamic and exciting rappers Fresh L (Ladi Ladinegan), TeeZee (Teni Zaccheaus) and singer Boj (Bolaji Odojukan).
During the Christmas break of 2011 whilst in Nigeria, they began getting bookings for a variety of shows including: Industry night at the Oriental Hotel, Harbor Point, and Boat Club, Lagos. After about 10 shows and numerous collaborations with already established artists in the Nigerian industry such as Adey, Davido, SDC, a plan was put in motion to carry the same momentum form back to the UK.
In January 2012 they uploaded their first web presenc
e on tumbler (http://drblasgidi.tumblr.com). The site had over 10,000 views in its first week and by the second month it had attracted 40,000 views.
They also released the viral video for one of their singles “Swagga Mi Gbono”, which again has been well received here and continues to get regular airplay back in Nigeria.
