My music is a reflection of my root, who I am – Galaybanton

By Agency Reporter



Stephen Olaitan Oladeji is a Nigerian-born, South Africa-based singer, songwriter and dancer.

Oladeji better known by his stage name Galaybanton, who started his musical journey at the age of 13 has revealed the influences and the very essence of his music.



He said in a recent interview that his root is his belonging, as evident in his looks and everything he adorns which speak volume of his origin as a Yoruba man.

Galaybanton idolizes Oduduwa, the father and progenitor of the Yoruba race and expresses his very essence in his craft for inspiration and pride.

He said, “ Even without my traditional attire on, I believe my skin expresses Oduduwa. I got his face tattooed on my arm. My label is named after him and also we have a clothing brand that is named after him, which is OMG Apparel. My root, my beginning, I say this a lot, because where I come from, who I am, I wish to honour by way of art and by way of sounds. I’m skilled in it, this is the talent I have been given or blessed with and this is how I wish to exploit it. Another big inspiration I’ve been focusing on lately is my fans – the die-hard love I’ve been receiving, things like that. I understand why older artists make comebacks, it is for the sake of the fans – it is truly a love story.”

Galaybanton started his professional music career at age 25. He has extended and shared his harmonious and melodic skills into songs such as; “Oh My Gucci” with Bongani Fassie, “Jika” with Yanga and AKA,“Wraith Ghost Lambo” with Kiddominant (yet to be released) and also worked with the Grammy-nominated producer, Kel P on his soon-to-be-released single “Nene”

One of his singles“Pokish” was released in 2019 with Enamel and it is the epitome of creativity in Afrobeat production laced with innovative sounds and smooth vocals.

Using production softwares such as Logic and Protunes to create his own beats, tunes and melodies for his custom sounds, he has transmuted into a genre he is now known for “Afropop”.

One of his biggest inspirations growing up was the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, 2pac and Tuface Idibia. His passion and energy for pop and Afrobeat bangers can be heard in his debut single “Weekend” along with spicy African bass drums.

“Weekend” is the perfect fusion of these sounds. With it, Galaybanton has taken Afrofusion to an astronomical level with captivating effect.

He was born and raised in Oko-Oba, Agege Lagos Nigeria. He went to Shade Private School and Lagos Baptist Secondary School, Orile Agege, Lagos. He studied Banking and Finance at the Ibadan Polytechnic, Oyo State, also in Nigeria. He relocated to South Africa at the age of 19 to pursue his music career.
