A Man Apart

I'll Be ft. Alex Marie Brinkley



Darlintino's recording debut was in 2019 with the R&B single "A Man Apart" written as an apology to a lost love. His follow-up single "I'll Be" features British Pop singer, AXYL and is a song encouraging young up-and-coming artists to shut out the distractions that come with the spotlight and keep their art in focus. Before making his own music, he was a songwriter for a few high profile artists in the Nigerian music scene.

He has opened for Afrobeat sensations Omah Lay and WurlD, and has his songs featured on Netflix's 2022 blockbuster movie 'Glamour Girls', for which he also wrote and performed the official soundtrack.

Darlintino is highly influenced by artists like J. Cole, Jay-Z, Drake, The Weeknd, 6LACK and Khalid, to name but a few.
