Their music clip “Je Ka Bere” was featured in the European campaign of Media Against Racism.

In 1996 Ade was invited by Jan Ü Krauthaeuser to contribute to the Cologne Carnival music compilation “Humba 2”. This led to the formation of the band BANTU with his brother Abiodun aka Don Abi, Patrice and Amechi (Amechinna Okerenkwo). He officially changed his stage name to Ade (later to Ade Bantu after BANTU’s 2005 album release). BANTU’s debut album “Fufu” became an instant success in Nigeria earning them two radio hit singles “Nzobu” & “Fire Inna Dancehall”. In 2000 after a wave of racist motivated violent attacks on foreigners which climaxed in the killing of Alberto Adriano, Adé Bantu set up the Afro-German musical collective Brothers Keepers.
