Abinye David Jumbo, otherwise known as Mr 2Kay, is currently hot on the Afrobeats scene from here to his hometown in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
Following the huge success of the original version of his track Bubugaga, he has just burst through here with a special UK remix of the single featuring UK based Afrobeats songstress May7ven [of Ten Ten fame] and young newcomer Moelogo. This new version of Bubugaga had an initial promotional release online during the summer, when it received five million downloads in three days and so trended worldwide!
With initial radio support from Capital XTRA’s DJ Abrantee, BBC 1Xtra, Radio Nottingham & Northampton and Bang FM plus a feature on MTV Base News, the track has been added to the Capital XTRA playlist.

Originally discovered by Grafton Records’ Tonye Ibyama at Nigeria’s yearly Bonny Beach Carnival, Mr 2Kay released his debut single Run The Town whereupon the Duncan Mighty remix soared high into Nigeria’s South South chart. Next was the release of debut album Waterside Boy, which made Mr 2Kay a household name in the South South area and won him a chance to perform in London at the Nigerian Carnival UK.
