Darey is anything but ‘new’ to this game. Having shot to fame in 2004 following a successful stint on the popular African TV show Project Fame, he went on to release his debut album From Me 2 U in 2006 and in 2009 he released his sophomore record un.DAREY.ted in his birth country Nigeria.
Both albums were certified platinum and earned him not only a massive following around the world, but also a number of nominations across some of Africa’s major award-shows including the Hip Hop World Awards, Channel O Awards and the prestigious MTV MAMAs to name but a few. Some of the nominations included the coveted ‘Record Of The Year,’ ‘Best Male Vocal Performance,’
It’s with these accolades, platinum record sales and support from his beloved fans that Darey is called Africa’s ‘King of R&B’. Tipped as Africa’s answer to Ne-Yo by industry experts due to his beautiful song writing skills, Darey now has his sights firmly set on breaking the UK market; “I’ve always wanted to bring my sound to the UK and I’m super excited to see how the people take to it. I’m a massive fan of the scene there and have a huge respect for the music that has come out of England over the years. I’d also love to collaborate with a few British acts, I can’t wait to see what happens next” he commented.
