Abimbola Oladokun, who was formerly known as Zhenoboy and now known as Bayanni, is a fast-growing Nigerian Afrobeat singer, songwriter, and musician.

Speaking about music and songs, Bayanni has released a couple of singles as an independent artist since his rise to the limelight in 2021. “BMW, African Beauty, Duro, and Ballerina” are the names of some of those.


Today, we will be taking a thorough look at his biography, early life, early career, the record label he is signed to, songs, age, birthday, social media handles, net worth, girlfriend, and other minor things we feel you need to know about him.


Bayanni Biography

Legally born and named Abimbola Oladokun on the 25th day of June 1997 to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Oladokun in one of the states in the South-West of Nigeria, Abimbola Oladokun is who we now know as Bayanni.


Although previously known by his professional name Zhenoboy, Abimbola Oladokun’s professional name was changed from Zhenoboy to Bayanni upon his unveiling as the newest artist of the record label, Mavin Record. This, of course, was after he was nurtured by the record boss, Don Jazzy, and his team under the Mavin Academy segment of the record.


He was born and raised precisely in Lagos State; one of the states in the South-East of Nigeria. Speaking about originality and the sorts, Bayanni is a Yoruba boy, who is, by his state of origin, a Southerner by region and a Nigerian by nationality.


Being raised by parents who loved music in some way, Abimbola Oladokun grew up listening to African and Western performers sing their respective styles of music through radio, television, telephone, cassette player, and pretty much every other medium you could think of.


Now, he enjoys listening to Pop, Hip-hop, Fuji, R&B, Soul, Highlife, and of course, Afrobeats styles of music. According to sources, Davido, WizKid, YBNL boss Olamide, Burna Boy, and Davido are some of the Nigerian artists that motivate him.


Bayanni Educational Background

Later, he proceeded to the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where is said to have gained admission. Oh, and he is said to be a freshman at the University (Obafemi Awolowo University), currently pursuing a four-year degree.


Bayanni Early Career

Although he started getting fame and was officially shot to the limelight in 2021 after he released cover versions of popular Nigerian songs, like Peru, Jowo, and Felony, Bayanni is now more popular than he used to be.


Speaking of the limelight and prominence, Zhenoboy now known as Bayanni, first tasted fame in 2021 after the DMW boss and Afrobeats singer, Davido, indicated an interest in signing him to his record label DMW Records.


Be that as it may, however, the young lad didn’t quite get to become well-known and recognized for his craft, as he should, until the Mavin boss and Afrobeats sing, Don Jazzy, unveiled him as one of his new signees.


On the 23rd of August 2022, Don Jazzy unveiled Abimbola Oladokun as one of his new signees. Also on that day, Zhenoboy’s self-titled Ep, “Bayanni.” Making the big announcement on his social media page on Instagram @donjazzy, Jazzy wrote in full, thus:


“It’s that time again when we introduce another young talent from the Mavin Academy. Meet BAYANNI. He has through a series of defining experiences and is now prepared to be revealed to the world. Please welcome @itsbayanni, MAVIN’s newest member.”


Whilst Oladokun is known for being signed under the Mavin Record at the time, he released a couple of singles as an independent artist before his breakthrough.
