Donae’o was always destined to make a career out of music after growing up in a house where melodies were a major force. His mother was a singer and as a youngster growing up in north west London it was common place for her to be heard belting out tunes in the house. A young Donae’o was also a regular companion when she was out performing and loved soaking up the atmosphere. In fact you could say this is where he felt most at home.
Donae’o, who is known for blurring lines between Grime, Funky, Afrobeats & Dancehall is responsible for classic anthems such as ‘Devil In A Blue Dress’, ‘Party Hard’ & ‘African Warrior’. His most recent tracks ‘My Circle’, ‘Polo’ and the collaboration with Giggs on his top 1o album, ‘Lock Doh’ have been causing some real excitement for whats coming next.
“Donae’o grabs the best of the underground, matching it with just a hint of sugar to craft something universal.” – Clash
