Humble beginnings/Biography

The duo drove a commercial bus to make ends meet until they were discovered by Cornerstone Music in early 2003.

From being a ‘Danfo’ bus driver that plied the Ojo Road and Mile 2 route, they rose to become one of Nigeria’s best music duo and international stars to come out of Ajegunle.

Their hit ‘I Am a Danfo Driver, was chosen alongside 2baba’s ‘African Queen’ as the soundtracks in the Hollywood movie, Phat Girlz.

They then made history as the first Nigerian artistes to have their track used as a soundtrack in a Hollywood movie.

The duo later released a sophomore album titled “Danfo Travel: Success Story” in 2005.

One of the hit songs on the album, “Kpolongo” earned them their first European tour in October 2006.

They performed in Athens, Sweden, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and several other countries.

The last made news headlines in June 2018 when they accused producer and artiste, Tekno, of sampling one of their songs without permission.

May his soul rest in peace.
