Now known for his hit-dropping prowess, Dampte continued his upward push following up with his next hit “Ghetto” for which he filmed a highly regarded video.

The gifted writer and performer Dampte has an ever increasing repertoire and has been holding it down since before hip hop started ruling his native Nigerian airwaves. His stage performances have always been off the hook and have successfully been rocking audiences across Nigeria, Ghana, and elsewhere. He is currently living and performing in the UK.

“I used to love to just sit down and write but now, I sit down and spit.” Additionally Dampte states “I’ve got more anthems than any National…” .

Musically gifted, he began playing the drums at the age of 3 and by the age of 9 was playing the drums at his local church. Martin’s musical influences came from such great musicians as James Brown, Dave Wreckle, Steve Gadd and Shaun Moonie.

“I am music in soul. All of my musical influences each make a very different kind of experimental sound, which I execute as a drummer. My love of many styles leads me to create and play original music not heard anywhere else.”

Martin has toured all over the world with various artists and as a part of the gospel group Arise for 11 years. His professional credits include performances with Regina Bell, Jessie Powell, and The Yellow Jackets. He was a Bucket Drummer in the four time Tony Award Winning show “Bring In ‘Da Noise, Bring In ‘Da Funk”, and the show “Keep Banging”.
