Donne-moi l’accord: Rising French rap star Dadju drops video for Burna Boy-assisted single
Dadju is France’s new mega-hit afro-R&B star poised to breakthrough in the UK in our new polyglot pop world. If anything makes the argument for his appeal in the English-speaking world it’s his new single “Donne moi l’accord” featuring Nigerian superstar Burna Boy.

He’s the biggest new star in France of the last two years, with three diamond singles, two platinum singles and over a million albums sold.
So – who is Dadju? Born in Bobigny, Seine-Saint-Denis in 1991, real name Dadju Djuna Nsungula he comes from a supremely musical Congolese family. His brother Maître Gims is one of France’s most famous rappers. For fans of Congolese rumba, soukous and ndombolo, his father might be more familiar; Djanana Djuna, a vocalist in Papa Wemba’s band. Dadju’s solo artist breakthrough came in 2017 when his album Gentleman 2.0 got to No. 1 on French iTunes.
In November 2019, he released his second project, a 28 track double album called Poison Ou Antidote. Single “Donne-moi l’accord” is taken from that record and produced by leading afrobeats producer of the moment Kel P, who has crafted hits for WizKid and Burna Boy including several for Burna’s last record, African Giant.
