Another club banger in 2012 was “Oliver Twist” performed by Nigerian bangalee, D’Banj.

“Oliver Twist” is a song by Nigerian singer-songwriter D’banj. The track was first released in the United Kingdom on 11 May 2012, as the first single from DB Records’ compilation album, D’Kings Men (2013).

For the chart week dated 26 May, “Oliver Twist” debuted at number nine on the UK Singles Chart—marking the musician’s first chart appearance and first Nigerian song to ever debut on the chart.

Lyrically, the song expresses D’banj’s crave for more women, relating to how the fictional character Oliver Twist asked for more gruel.

A music video, directed by Sesan Ogunro, to accompany the release of “Oliver Twist” was first released onto YouTube on 19 March 2012. The video itself runs for a total of three minutes and fifty-five seconds and sees the artist, D’banj, performing the track in an empty studio designed as a run down home. It is performed in the key of G# Minor throughout the entire song.

A member of D’banj’s live set (David Vujanic) makes an appearance dressed as Oliver Twist, whilst the CEO Dancers (three female dancers) perform to the track. In August 2013, the music video surpassed 21.5 million views making it the Nigerian song with highest number of views on YouTube at the time. As of April 2023, it has more than 63 million views.
