Known for his idiosyncratic style and abundant charisma, D.Matthews aims to inspire listeners through his stimulating lyrics and lively blend of Rap & Afrobeat/Afropop. He cites Afrobeat Music Pioneer, Fela Kuti, Burna Boy, alternative neo-soul songstress Tinashe and fellow Nigerian singer-songwriter WizKid as musical influences. Born in Ibadan, Oyo State, D.Matthews knew he was destined to entertain from a young age, singing and dancing when he returned from church. He went on to launch his music career at the age of 20 after the realisation of the steps he’s been making from the earlier days of his life back home.
His career has since gone from strength to strength on a daily. He has been featured in Billboard, an internationally recognised pop culture and entertainment magazine..
