 David “D.MATTHEWS” Matthews, the Nigerian born vocalist & songwriter, is an idiosyncratic Artist and has curated his own brand of motivational & energetic calm Afrobeat & Afropop driven by the beats of Africa. He also blends traditional African elements with global mainstream pop for a sound that's heartfelt and fascinating. His stage presence itself carries a lot of weight that audience should watch out for! 
 As an emerging artist in the music industry, “D.MATTHEWS” has quickly become one of Aotearoa’s favourite Afrobeats Artist. Same thing globally. 
 The genre, Afro-Beats, can be heard on most of his tracks with a simple melody that captivates people’s mind and soul. D.MATTHEWS undulating rhythms can be heard on tracks like, “sunrise”. D.MATTHEWS is very resistant/reluctant to define his musical style. “I make different music for different people. Music doesn’t have a stamp for me, as long as you feel it deep down in your soul”, he says. The major thing is that people hear and feel the rawness, realness and authenticity in my song with goosebumps from that or being able to dance and rage at the same time. In other words, having a good time with real music.
 D.MATTHEWS cites Afrobeat Music Pioneer, Fela Kuti, Burna Boy and fellow Nigerian singer-songwriter WizKid as musical influences.
