    Yes, it’s a great thing for nigerian music, because this may just be the anchor for it to go international. NO, this is not worth a whole post spot on bella naija…asin biko, people should just calm down. It’s just a tweet! ahn ahn!

    • zaquisha

    March 1, 2011 at 10:23 am

    First! lol! Okay, what I think? I think D’banj and Don Jazzy should start singing, kanye’s song, ‘Welcome to the Good Life! If they collabo and its really good… hmm… we could just about get our first Grammy through D’banj and Don Jazzy!

    • mark

      July 12, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Not a fan of Kanye West @ all. That said, Kudos to the Mo Hits crew!! Super proud of you guys.


    March 1, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    is the story confirmed? we didn’t know BN was now turning into a gossip site. abeg! and why is Kanye talking to them like they are his pets?
    anyway, if they are working on a hit track, then thats good. it will bring the Nigerian music scene to another level by working with Kanye!

  20. Rationalchaos

    March 1, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    I think this could potentially be great. This is what M.I should ve done after getting a BET nomination. I m proud of Nigerian music. We are going global.

  21. Lagos Boy

    March 1, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Spend that cash and you can colabo with anyone.. Mo hits is currently spending that CASH.


    March 1, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    and what if it turns out that they never do a collabo and kanye was just tweeting them to come to new york and serve him drinks? lol
    lets not get ahead of ourselves, lets wait for them or kanye to confirm.
    and for those talking about the grammys? slow your roll! lets hear the track first (that is, if there is going to be one)
    im not a “bad belle” i just dont believe in getting ahead of yourself, because you might end up disappointed.

    • y8?

      March 1, 2011 at 4:47 pm

      Y r u such an -, y bother comment if u r so bitter about ppl who don’t give a hoot about ur low life existence. “Kanye talking to them like they are his pets”, “tweeting them to come to new york and serve him drinks? lol” n u r not a BADBELLE so wht r u exactly, I think u r right u can’t b a BADBELLE u r worse-off. Get a life pls!!!


      March 2, 2011 at 2:12 pm

      Nigerians are here making noise as if Kanye is the gateway to heaven. lets confirm the story first, instead of throwing egg on our faces later. PLEASE.
      my low life? yet you commented on my behalf? okay. lol

    • zizim

      June 16, 2011 at 3:34 pm

      y serve drinks, y not just hang out, obviously u think kanye is d gateway for u to think he won’t want to have anything with 9ja’s except dt they serve him. nyways Amaka..sometimes life is about believing..and kanye is just like d’banj from grass to grace except that he lives in a developed world…muhahahahaha!

    March 2, 2011 at 9:26 am

    ppl are just bad~mouthing this whole thing…if bellanaija didn’t put it up,they will talk,they put it up now,another complaint! can’t y’all read that it is under bytes! and can’t we rejoice with those who are rejoicing again? why didn’t kanye west tweet fally pupa or hhp then if we should not reckon with international artistes! abeg o,leave us proudly nigerian to celebrate our own…i am not a huge fan of d’banj but i am proud of what he is doing. and if it is money o,i think kanye has a lot of that.

  35. Sincere

    March 2, 2011 at 10:46 am

    I’m sorry but can people stop worshipping Kanye already…So he sent a tweeet, Biiiiggggg Deal !!!! Let them release the work 1st then hale….Gawsh :-s

    • MissMe

      March 2, 2011 at 2:44 pm

      I’m not much of a d’banj fan,But given the fact that Kanye is one of the biggest selling artist at the moment, (with an even bigger ego I might add), it’s natural that we are excited about the connection, but don’t be such a debbie downer 😛


    March 2, 2011 at 11:36 am

    I think if dbanj should continue his career like this he his must be getting close to grammy for me i pray it works has he did for snoop,dbanj is a good ambassador bringing nigeria music talent out through his involvement

  37. davis kolawole

    March 2, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    as the saying goes “success recognises & celebrates success”!!!! this is a good one….all those criticising, lets see a candle or thread you’ve been able to produce. it shows our music is been recognised. if you have anything better then start & lets see how far you can go!!! big up guys *MOHITS* toh bahdt

  38. jennietobbie

    March 2, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    OK! So I am excited about this. SUPER EXCITED!! This means something big to Nigerians all over the world. People will see that we have talents and can compete internationally…not yahoo yahoo or 419. If you live outside Nigeria, you know where I am coming from……this is HUGE! Period.

    **Side track** My mum always says: If u don’t have anything nice to say…..SHUT THE HELL UP! People, stop vibing out negative energies. Move on if you don’t like something……better things are ahead. ……stop wasting your time

    **side track, again* Thank you Nigerians and Bella……thanks for keeping us updated over here. xoxo

Lets be known for our creativity in music, arts, movies, education et al than for yahoo yahoo. It was like when Genny was featured on Oprah…I squealed with joy and was on a positive high for days. Trust me, if you’ve ever held your head down in shame at the negative news involving our fellow citizens especially abroad, any piece of good news is worth celebrating. Dbanj, Don Jazzy…MoHits crew-y’all make this 9-G-Rian babe very proud n happy.

    D’banj should stop wasting money chasing foreign artistes to feature in his song. Does anyone have an idea how much they paid snoop to feature in Mr. Endowed remix, that turned out to be crap (in my opinion!)? Even if D’banj likes, he should do a collabo with late MJ, he still cannot see Tuface’s back!!!!

    March 8, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    March 16, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    My thoughts(kanye will eventually come to naij and marry a nigerian girl called Taye or Tai… ) Together they will be called Taye and Kanye…. maybe, maybe not.. (It is a joke, if u cant see the humor, pass along thanks.)

    Whatever the case, I just hope dbanj and donjazzy will not forget their villages/people but aim to financially support some less priviledges… my take. it is good to help out as there are people suffering in silence (I take its our responsibility, if we chose to see things in different ways). .. JESUS BLESS.

    D’banj is damned! His fans are damned too if they still love and dance to his music. As for me, I disowned him now.

    August 16, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    I think kanye is making a greatest mistake take by signing weezy D bang & Birthman Don jazzy MI & chocolate city instead of people like D dang who always say trash on studio.

  65. queenty

    September 11, 2011 at 7:49 am

    this is so all about illuminati,free masoms and the all-seeing eye. We should be more careful.
