I like how Dbanj's music has evolved, he is a smart business man. He saw that nothing he does is ever going to be good enough for Nigerians since they are so bent on bashing him and taking sides with Don Jazzy, so he started making his music sound broader and more contemporary, rather than the generic Naija sounds that all the artists just churned out and well, it paid off for him.

He is the only Nigerian artist that plays in massive n well acclaimed international events. He is actually the face of African Music to the rest of the world and everyday he keeps getting bigger.

I live in England, and all my oyibo friends know who dbanj is (they can even sing Extraordinary, top of the world & Oliver twist word for word..lol) but no one has heard of Mavin, Davido, Wizkid and the rest..I had to play them all these Apple's music..

Big up Dbanj!

ASAMPOKOTO said...

Mega shows where? Which country? My guys career is dead. Must we be in denial over every single thing? Urgh!

ASAMPOKOTO said...

Where is this everywhere else that d'banj is 'still big' ? What are these songs that they are playing? Someone who has been struggling to bring out a hit record since Oliver twist.
Please let's jst be honest

Anonymous said...

Congrats to him. But to say d truth d'banj's music has not evolved to anywhere in years now, he has remained stagnant. Na business he dey do now, not making any music. So MTV should not take us for fools, he no deserve dis particular award. The likes of Asa & 2Face have remained more consistent, I think one of dem deserves dis.

ASAMPOKOTO said...

What international event has he. Played at? People need to let Oliver twist go. How many years ago was this? And oyibo people love weezy.

Damola Gbadegesin said...

Congratulations to him. Today I saw D'banj display highest form of maturity by calling @ Donjazzy.So happy for him.Cool guy.

And as for Dbanj!!!!! since day one of his first ever interview on NTA 2 CHANNEL 5 When he talked about his up and coming mobolowown back then... i said this to my kid brov that this guy is an evolution...... so we know them!!!!! and Don jazzy!!! the Star maker..... what else can i say...... image speaks for its self....... Congrats to all the winners..... Mine to is coming soon....... The best Voice Artiste of the year back to back... lolzzzzzz

Celine Oma said...

Don Jazzy ought to have won that award. Buh nw dat Dbanj's got it, congrats to him. And I think the part whre he dedicated it to IDJA is jst trying to get pple to say 'awww' nothin much. No real connection or maturity in it.

Unknown said...

Big congrats!

don andre said...

Oga tittus finally u don agree say u fuck up ni,@ anonymous dat stays in uk,u r a big liar , in shot u dey lie for lagos state , nobody knw davido,wizkid,mavin indeed , maybe na west UK u dry stay.

don andre said...

His career is not dead. Dont say what u dont know. The guy is talented with or without Don Jazzy. Is Don Jazzy God? Stmchew

Anonymous said...

Is it Don Jazzy that helped him with his hit song "Tell me who discoverd you". I live in SA and that song is a hit song in South Africa. Mind you, he did that song after "Oliver Twist". Because Don Jazzy helped him at some point in his life so he should continue thanking him for the rest of his life. Smtchew

Anonymous said...

People help people and move on. You dont have to thank the person for the rest of your life. Is it not Ali Baba that helped AY? Is AY not big now? Is Ali Baba witch hunting him because of that? Thank God Ali Baba is not Ibo. Stmchew

Anonymous said...

DBANJ'S SONG, "TELL ME WHO DISCOVERED YOU" IS A HIT SONG IN SOUTH AFRICA. I LIVE IN SOUTH AFRICA AND THAT SONG IS JUST TOO MUCH. BECAUSE SOMEBODY HELPED YOUR CAREER AT SOME POINT IN YOUR LIFE DOESNT MEAN YOU HAVE TO THANK THE PERSON FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. MOVE ON. IS DON JAZZY GOD?? STMCHEW

Can you please let it go mr asampokoto. Replying one person supporting dbanj is ok.. But replying all,that's desperate! Here have some sugar, all this bitterness is too much for one human being. Leave dbanj and don jazzy alone! Wen and if they settle will they call u? Leave them alone! Shikena!
