Dr. Alban

Despite never having had any substantial hit in the U.S., Dr. Alban nevertheless has become one of the most recognizable faces of the '90s Euro-dance scene with his dancehall-inflected take on the style. Born in a middle-class Nigerian family of ten children, Alban relocated to Stockholm, Sweden at 23 to study dentistry. In order to pay for his studies, he started to work as a DJ, where he quickly gained notice for singing reggae-style over the records he spun. After he graduated, he managed to reconcile his medical activities with DJing for a while, until he met producer Denniz Pop, who signed him to his SweMix label. Adopting the Dr. Alban moniker as a nod to his dentistry background, he released his debut album Hello Afrika in late 1990, with both the title track and "No Coke" becoming million-selling European hits in 1991. In 1992, second album One Love earned him a sizable hit in the title track and unleashed another two million-selling-plus Euro-smashes in "It's My Life" and "Sing Hallelujah," cementing his place as one of Euro-dance's brightest stars. His third album, Look Who's Talking, came in 1994, with the title track giving him another large hit all over Europe; yet subsequent singles failed to match his previous successes, signaling that his star was about to fade. This was confirmed when both 1997's I Believe and 1999's Prescription failed to ignite any significant hits. Since then, he has only released one other album, 2007's Back to Basics, while also putting out largely ignored singles in the interim. ~ Ricardo Rainho

I only heard Dr. Alban's music on WLUW in the early 90s, which was the radio station of the college I attended. WLUW played Eurodance and other types of dance music.
I suspect that was an effect of major radio stations owned by big business. They did not want competition from non-American music.
But we have the internet now :)
