Jezebel may have clowned D'Banj, but American blogger Sandra Rose had nice things to say...

 
Here's what Sandra Rose wrote on her blog: "Kanye West recently signed 2 Nigerian artists to his G.O.O.D. Music label. One of them is D’banj, who, according to Upscale Hype, attended the 2011 BET Awards styled in a pair of Christian Louboutin Mika Raja flats ($2,395) from the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. I would rather see a man dressed like D’banj than one dressed like those untamed beasts who roam the urban landscape with their pants hanging off their butts, like Lil Wayne and that ilk. We have to do better."

D'Banj's shoes is almost N400k? Damn, this guy's paid!

Abeg what is the need for you to bring in an American blogger Linda? What you think is what we are interested in not some random oyibo blogger. Meanwhile, you should not side with all these freaking people that divide black people

ChiChiLuv said...

How is $2395 = $4000, eh Linda? If you said $3000 I for say but 4K? LOL! Buy glasses o abeg you LOL. I feel that even if someone has the $$ to pay almost $2500 for a pair of shoes he probably wouldn't wear again (celebs especially naija celebs don't like to rerock much) is a waste of money but easy come, easy go. Enjoy D'banj for the rest of us, o jare!

as funny as that sound i can buy that exact same shoe in china for 180usd grade A leather!!!!

Dike said...

Nice shoes. Are celebrities allowed to reuse shoes? Abi na only cloth dem no suppose re-rock...lol

It baffles me to think that D'banj may not wear this nice shoes again because he's been see wearing them before. Too much money.

Sandra Rose is str8 bsing... 3k for a pair of shoes? Even D'Banj can't be that foolish...

Bee said...

chichiluv please be reading before you type. look at the currency she put b4 you attack.

$2395 = almost N400K....one is $, the other Naira

Yeah yeah,now where are dose peanut-sized-brains who will regard this as another ironical statement? Then I'll know that their entire senses have really gone myopic with hatred that they are too blind to appreciate rare creativity. *waiting with a baseball bat*

zoomzoomzoom said...

Chichiluv,U are such a DUMBO!!!Linda was calculating the value in Naira.The right sign was sitting in front of the 400k...ish!!
Now to more important matters, ok na, i need to view Dbanj's outfit in a different light, that pair of shoes cost over $2000?Beautiful...i am still not a fan of his 'blouse'.

OK said...

@chichiluv: buy glasses plus contact lenses..make sure u use both together.... Linda said $2395 is almost 400k naira (N400,000 nigerian currency).

Laaraa said...

@ ChiChiLuv..u're the one who needs glasses. 2,395 dollars is equivalent to 400 thousand NAIRA. That's what linda meant. Not that $2395 = $4000...He worked for his money, he should spend it the way he likes..#shikena

Still doesnt excuse dbanj's attrocious outfit.there was no need to have the bravelet on and he could have certainly done better with the table cloth material trouser.
If i were him,i will wear aomething representing a hip fashion aware but autenthic african.the shoe looks crap and the fact that they arw louboutins dont mean they cant be crap

Say whatever you want, good or bad he at least got people's attention.

hot N cold said...

Chi, don't think u're smarter. I think she meant 400k in Naira. Come to think of it, don't you girls carry LV bags? How much are they again??? Shoes are to men what bags are to women. Dbanj is big so what do u guys expect? Yes Dbanj!

bbbfamily said...

I have a Kanye west Louis Vuitton dons I bought for 1800 dollars, thats not much for a guy like dbanj seriously, thats probably his most expensive shoe, why? cos he wore it to BET award.lol.
oh well mine is my most expensive of cos..hehehe

Anonymous said...

na wah for nigerians with their bad mouth...if he had worn the 180usd shoe to this kinda event you will also be the the first to condemn him...this life what can we do to satisfy pple....NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!DBANJ u rock jare..

@ChiChiLuv... please stop being foolish. Linda's right. Rounded up to the nearest 100k IT IS ALMOST 400k. Either you don't know maths or you don't know what the exchange rate is at the moment. *smh*

lmao @ the haters it is obvious that a prophet is not welcome in his own town!! if you donot appreciate him others do and all of you singing about illuminati how are you sure that he is among them!mscheww it is foolhardy for people to say things that they are not 100% sure of!

Adebola said...

@ Linda $2000 dollars on shoe is not that much if its what you really like, I mean I pay up to 800 dollars on shoes and I only work part time as an assistant Psychologist. So imagine someone like D'banj who make 20 times of what I make. Its ok sweet heart am sure if you save for it, you can get urself something as nice, but you will have to be into that sort. Its not really that bad honestly, and I still maintain D'banj looks nice.

Anonymous said...

Linda, you're intent on this cause right?!!! Well then, all hail King D'Banj the best dressed celebrity..... Lol!

Alicia says... said...

@OK, WAKE UP! the sooner you see the clues the better for you. i doubted it at first, but now I'm a firm believer!

hilary said...

for me 400k is not even worth someone they said spent almost 500m to get kanye west to sign them which i know that mo hits crew don't even worth 500m.I have two gold chains worth 750k,a gucci slippers worth 55k,a loui vuiton eyeglass worth 150k.as for the blogger i think her ass must have been whipped by weezy baby and co,its almost same thing chelsea will say on tv after been whiped by 50 and co

deeflamez said...

Jezebel only said 'it looks like a table-cloth fabric'....doesn't mean it actually is. Note: "IT LOOKS LIKE". Another person's opinion may say "it looks like woodin or embroided-linen" so please don't kill yourself because some 'Jezebel' made a comment from her own view - infact which she was actually admiring the creativity,and not with sarcasm as you claim. That was simply an Italian look-with a touch of English. Afterall,its obvious her people don't dress better especially since most of 'em sag their pants to reveal their 'precious' butts. Lol

There's no need to drink panadol for another man's headache.

The boy is repping Naija positively abroad + He is going places with a strong entrepreneurial spirit + He is spending HIS money on himself.

All in all I hail the brother. Nothing do am.

I think Dbanj is a lousy man. He should tone it down with his show off. I am happy for his achievements but he should watch it.

Linda, stop looking for foreign bloggers to support ur points. if u think Dbanj looks nice just say so. Cos folks like Sandra rose come off as mentally unstable half d damn time. State ur opinion, move on.

Ch5335ng said...

Anon June 28, 2011 8:42 PM; the difference is he doesn't do fakes. It's all about paying the ish for the real thing.

He can bloody afford it so what? CL's don't come cheap and for all we know, he may have been given the shoes as a gift.

He surely got noticed with this ensemble and i like it. He scrubbed up so clean.

@ Alicia...#batting fake eye lashes#..i see...and now i believe.....#in judas' voice#

deeflamez said...

@ Anon 1:26AM. Its obvious you have a big problem of low-self esteem...now to the question you asked "who knows D'banj?". Oh you're so dumb, cant you even answer your own question? For him to have been noticed by international bloggers, its obvious he's known - if not for his music, but for what he wore to the event. They didnt even notice Tuface,nor did they pass a comment about him (good or bad). And for your information, his money wasnt compared to those touts you mentioned, they were just advised to dress more decently to functions. And unlike you, he didnt brag about his wardrobe, he simply wore them and he was noticed and admired for it (mind you,his clothes are mostly Nigerian-tailored) so that is rep-ing the Naija Brand. So please take your self-esteem issues and go flush your broke-ass self oh ye Anonymous-nobody.

ChiChiLuv said...

Bee - first, it was not an attack. I was being jovial and teasing her about getting it wrong so please refrain from planting dissension where there is none and where none was meant.

Secondly, I missed the "N" sign and for that I apologize to Linda and I shall now go the optometrist for my own pair a fancy, see-me-well glasses.


Thanks, Bee and have a nice day:)
