▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ★★ Dadju ★★ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Dadju's full name Dadju Djuna Nsungula is a French singer and rapper. He was born in Bobigny on May 2, 1991.
Dadju comes from a musical background: his father sang in Papa Wemba's band, and he is the brother of the famous rapper Maître Gims.
Dadju begins music 'by accident' by regularly accompanying his brother Maître Gims at the studio, the latter will decide to record a sound with him that will please his close circle who will encourage him to start professionally in music.
His career began in 2012 with the group The Shin Sekaï, which signed the same year on the label Wati B. The name of the group is a reference to the manga One Piece. The first track is called 'Moi d’abord', then the band releases a mixtape titled 'The Shin Sekaï Volume I'. The 'Volume II' comes out some time later and the title 'Rêver' allows them to be successful, as well as 'Du Berceau au linceul', which is hoisted in the Top 10 of the French charts.
The first album is released on March 25, 2016 and with the title 'Indéfini'. 'Aime-moi demain' featuring Gradur is certified as a gold single.
A solo career
After the release of this album, The Shin Sekaï pauses and Dadju takes the opportunity to release solo songs, which he broadcasts for free on the Internet.
He then released several clips under the name of G20Live. All this announces his first album, 'Gentleman 2.0'.
October 27 sees the release of his single 'Ma Fierté', with Maitre Gims and Alonzo.
The album, 'Gentleman 2.0'
The album, meanwhile, highly anticipated by fans, is released on November 24, 2017. It is triple platinum certified, supported by 8 singles that all become hits.
After the success of his solo album, Dadju is preparing the sequel, but he does not forget the collaborations with artists close to him.
In January 2018, he recorded 'Tant Pis', with Dry former member of the Mafia K'1 Fry. The single is a hit and allows Dry to promote himself as he announces his comeback on the front of the stage. Dadju then makes an appearance on the album of his brother Maitre Gims, 'Ceinture Noire', with 'Tu ne le vois pas'.
The Djuna brothers will then collaborate again for the single 'Bella Ciao', cover version of the hymn of the resisters which becomes famous once more through the hit Netflix series , 'La Casa de Papel', alongside Vitaa, Slimane and Naestro. This version has been the subject of a lot of critics but its success is undeniable: a few days after its release on May 18, 2018, the song was already number one iTunes sales in France.
Hard to blame Dadju for anything . Launched solo after his group adventure with The Shin Sekai, everything has been a success for the artist. Expected to create a good impression for this new career with Gentleman 2.0, Dadju has actually done a lot more with this first album. Having 4 times platinum sales with Gentleman 2.0, he will not delay to launch a reissue of his project. In addition to the strong tracks initially present on the album, like Bob Marley, Django or Lionne, Dadju has decided to add to the tracklist no less than 10 titles, including Jaloux and Sans thème remix.
Dadju has just been consecrated 'Francophone Revelation of the Year' at the 2018 NRJ Music Awards. The rapper wins his first award for the 20th edition of the NMA.
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬★★ Aya Nakamura ★★▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Aya Nakamura is a young singer. After being discovered on social networks, she signs at Warner Music France. She announces the release of her first album, 'Journal Intime', by unveiling several singles in the summer of 2017 as 'Comportement' and 'Oumou Sangaré'.
Aya Nakamura is a singer born on May 10, 1995 in Bamako, Mali. As a child, her parents move to France. The family, a family of griots (storytellers-singers) moved to Aulnay-Sous-Bois.
As a little girl, she lives in a house immersed in music which allows her to develop her own musical universe but also to start her career in music. She chooses the name of Nakamura by herself, in tribute to a character of the series 'Heroes', HiroNakamura.
Driven by her desires Aya Nakamura quickly wrote her first texts and her first songs. She uses social networks to get the public's opinion. Two of her first titles are particularly appreciated, 'Karma' and 'J’ai mal.'
The young woman writes on subjects that she has at heart like relationships or love. After reaching 3 million views with 'J’ai mal,' Aya Nakamura decides to get into the music industry fully.
The determining encounter
Aya Nakamura is also helped in her approach thanks to her meeting with the composer Christopher Ghenda then the young Dems who quickly becomes her producer-manager. The three, are very productive in the studio. From this collaboration 'Brisé' takes birth. It's a hit.
As from then on Aya Nakamura is solicited by other stars. We find her on the title 'Sorry' with Abou Debeing or 'Super Hot' with Gradur. She also recorded a featuring with Fababy.
In December 2015, Aya Nakamura signs with Warner Music France.
It is a happy setback that prevents the singer from working immediately on her first album: her baby girl is born in the spring of 2016. But the following year the singer returns in force by unveiling the hits 'Comportement' and 'Oumou Sangaré', a tribute to the Malian singer of the same name. The clip of 'Comportement' is unveiled at the end of June. The first album of AyaNakamura is expected for August 25, 2017.
Back in force
'Journal Intime' is the title of the first album of Aya Nakamura released as planned in late 2017. The public expectation has been rewarded with an album which reached gold.
Determined to celebrate this long-awaited success, the artist offered an exceptional concert at the AccorHotelsArena de Bercy on September 23, 2017. If the audience came to applaud the singer, it was also an evening dedicated to Mali and its creativity, since artists such as Oumou Sangare, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Lassana Hawa or Mokobe were part of it.
However, Aya Nakamura did not stop there. She came back in force in the spring of 2018 with two power hits that should stay in the ears for a while.
'Djadja' arrives on air in April and quickly establishes itself as a single. Not only, Aya Nakamura distills her inimitable flow, but the resolutely girl power lyrics resonate loudly in the mouth of the new queen of hip-hop in the hexagon. On the first day of summer, the clip of the title counted nearly 225,000,000 views on YouTube! His successor, 'Copines', released in the fall of 2018, ranked 4th in the charts in France.
In parallel, the singer collaborated with DJ Erise to offer the title 'Pourquoi tu forces with more RnB vibes where she affirms again her uninhibited grip on the male.
▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ★★ DJ Assad ★★ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
DJ Assad is a French DJ, producer and composer of Mauritian origin.
Assad, also known as DJ Assad, is a figure of club and urban music. Over the years, Rich of his Mauritian origins, his musical culture, he will use his eclecticism allowing him to propose to his public unique sets in clubs and then to the greatest number on the radio waves: Radio FG, FUN RADIO, NRJ , CIDADE FM (Portugal) & HIT RADIO (Morocco).
'Originally, I was rocked by the Mauritian sega but also by funk and soul and Hip-Hop. It is in these musical styles that I found the influences and the desire to dance, to share with people. Live shows or radios shows are two very different exercises: live, it is easy to feel the energy while in radio you have to rely more on your instinct, find the right compromise between what people expect, surprise them with new things '
The recipe for his sets will allow his shows to reach the top of the rankings by being certified 'Number 1 show in France' for several consecutive years. Also leading him to browse the most beautiful clubs in France and abroad.
+ 900 radio shows
+ Show # 1 in France
+ 1500 dates in clubs
Naturally, after discovering and dancing with the hits of the moment, Assad turned to production. Driven by the desire to continue what made his success on air and in clubs: successful trials in 2008 with three successive tubes 'EVERYBODY CLAP', 'SUMMER LOVIN' and 'JUST DANCE'.
Since, Assad is 1 album 'PLAYGROUND' and more than 20 hits! Among these hits we find the hit 'LI TOURNER', Séga hymn revisited, tribute to his island, which will be the biggest tube of the year 2013 and is still ranked in the clubs of France 5 years later!
There are also definitely electro songs such as 'WE ARE ONE' & 'ADDICTED' featuring Craig David, which will be successful in France but also internationally. Not to mention 'FOR YOUR EYES', 'PLAYGROUND', 'SO FAR AWAY' 'POP MY LIFE' 'MAKE IT HOT' 'OLÉ' 'VENGA VENGA' 'ENAMORAME'
'I realized that by listening to the hits of the moment, I had a lot of ideas and I realized that it was possible to start producing remixes or titles with little material. Learning to produce is hard and so different from mixing. But my willingness to share even more with people is galvanizing! Across borders or styles, I do not impose any style, no limit, I produce music in a broad sense without constraining me - my only leitmotiv, to create and share the Music I would like to hear. '
Collaborations: WILLY WILLIAM, USHER, CRAIG DAVID, MOHOMBI, BIG ALI, SABRINA WASHINGTON, MHD
+ 2.2 million Shazam

After his experiences of production, Assad will collaborate on projects with other artists and not least: first with Willy William on the hit world 'MI GENTE' by J Balvin and Willy William and then remixed in a English version with Beyoncé.

'I must admit that it has been a great honor for me to be contacted by artists such as Maitre Gims or Willy. Succeeding in cravings, influences from other artists is very rewarding! '
