      Amy and Jokky, don’t mind them jare. Yes! D’banj is now an illumnati member and has sold his soul for fame. They didn’t let Don Jazzy sign sha so he went and joined the Free Masons. They wear upside down necklaces and walk sideways when they’re performing..they’re also required to eat an egg every morning and drink rice milk instead of regular milk. That’s why their skin(s) glow like that..e.g. Beyonce. Speaking of which, she’s their queen mother and Jay’s their President. The Board of Directors are some white men (nobody knows them sha) Their uniform consists of all black errthin’ and bling (upside down bling specifically and usually just 1 piece) I could go on, but I’ll reveal more when you paranoid ppl come up with more ish..
      Sound ludicrous, yeah…thought so. That’s how y’all sound when you get on the ignorant bandwagon.

    I am totally curious. How do u guys come this illuminati stories. U all seem to know their members, thier signs, what they wear etc. How did u guys become privy to such information. i am not being sarcastic, really want to know. Do u have family members, colleagues or friends that belong to this sect and freely give u information or u just come up with these ideas and run with them.

  13. good

    January 25, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    @jokky,pls hold ur lips and tell us something new.Which flipping upside down triangle necklace are u talking abt?How does that correspond to Illuminati?We’re sick and tired of Illuminati rumour.D’banj is a full christian and a christian he will remain.Tell ur illuminati rumour to the marines.
    @ tee,he should be booed off stage b’cos he stole wot?Ur father’s money??U must be joking.Whether ur sarcastic self likes it or not,D’banj is the greatest 21st century Nigerian stage performer.Not even his greates enemy can dispute that!

    This sucks! The song, the video, why? Dbanj used to be good but now he just packages rubbish music and dishes it out and some naijas are still into him. I so do not get him. Don Jazzy should be helping Wande Cole (who can actually sing) boost his music career and not Dbanj who is all hype and doesn’t deliver anymore.

      It’s true. They are talented, but with role models like them JayZ/Beyonce they’re more focused on popularity, so gimmicks are more important than sound. Oliver for instance is a joke but it was viral. The Louboutin shoes looked all Pocahontas but got attention. They’re doing well as ‘entertainers’ and ‘stars’. Look elsewhere for excellent music.

      @I AM LEGEND and a few others,when wld some of u see sense in some of what he sings?I don”t understand y that has been a new quote by some of u in recent times.Agreed,D”banj can more or less be termed a musical comedian in some cases “cos of his great sense of humour and all but mehn,he is serious when he is serious.I wld take the remix of Endowed anytime anyday,not b”cos of the inclusion of Snoop or whatever,but for his rhymes in that song,his own verses esp the 2nd verse which undoubtedly sends a msg.For the old ones,there are many songs of his which passed msgs as in the case of Mobolowowon,Loke Loke,Celebrate (which i personally got inspired from),Fall in love (which is widely accepted),even Scape goat(if many actually sit to listen to his lyrics) and some more ,so really,i don”t get it when some seem to just hurriedly conclude negatively.There is no doubt that Don Jazzy”s beats are more catchy than D”banj”s voice but that shldn”t stop some of us frm taking our time to listen to his exact words.Not evryone has excellent singing voices but atleast there are some voices which are quite or averagely satisfactory of which his is one of them.He has never for once claimed that he’s such a great singer but that hasn”t stopped him frm attaining the peak.U don”t av to get 100/100 to be the most successful.Aside all of that,he excels in many other aspects of Music that so many of his colleagues cannot step up to him at e.g in the case of exceptional entertainment,stage performance,charismatic personality,being an instrumentalist of which many of the others can”t even bring themselves to do etc and thats exactly wot sells him NOT his music.Music is completely diverse and satisfies different moods and different ppl in different ways whether there”s much lyrical depth or not.How many songs across the entire world actually make sense inclusive of the Americans.Many of them sing hundred times more trash than our Nigerian ones if we all wanna be sincere with ourselves.However,In the case of Nigeria as an e.g where D”banj belongs,wots the depth of the lyrical content of the other singers/musicians inclusive of Tuface himself???Tuface to me,was better in the past than now “cos i personally don”t really appreciate his songs anymore such as “implication” (which i personally think is one of the stupidest songs ever to be churned out “cos its not comical,thus cannot be excused),”excuse me sister”,raindrops (which i think is jus ok) and a few more so to me.I actuallythink Tuface has deteriorated,tho” his excellent voice still remains his weapon.However his (Tuface) album”Grass to Grace” is about the BEST album to come out of Nigeria(my own opinion) in the last 10yrs and i wld never dispute that.For D”banj,i wld say that the only song he has actually sung that doesn”t make sense is OLIVER TWIST but then its purely and obviously a very comical song,so criticizing him over that is irrelevant.Its so obvious he dint even sit to write that out,was sung to laugh at and dance away.No big deal!So really,no one has it all and thats one thing we must accept not forgetting that music is NOT only limited to lyrics and vocals.Others like Wizkid ,wots lyrically good abt his songs?He”s only a new kid on the block who has caught our(inclusive of me) attention thru his 4 hit singles with his young person and satisfactory stage performance…..P-Square too,how many songs of theirs are lyrically sound?I love their beats and i like their dance moves and deffo abt 5 of their songs(which i still play till tom in my hse) but the truth is, quite a number of theirs don”t make sense as well.So really,evryone of those in the limelight have something thats working for them.God bless them all.!!!!!!
      @the individual(s) who think/s he is in Illuminati,its unfortunate that u can actually take ur time to justify ur negative thots thru ur malicious write up towards D”banj who has always been a christian till tomorrow!Let me remind u that D”banj has been wearing that necklace for over 3yrs now before he even dreamt he wld ever meet Kanye West.

    @nok 10,i don’t grab y u used the term ‘as usual’.I wld give u a list of very sensible songs of his in the past e.g mobolowowon,loke loke,the remix of endowed (his own verses esp the 2nd verse),celebrate,even ‘scapegoat'(if u listen to the wordings) and some more,.Many of u are more interested in the beats as opposed to listening to wot he actually says in some cases.However,his voice may not be as good as wande coal’s or whoever but can always pass.How many songs really contain exceptional lyrics evrywhere in the world???It’s jus the good voice of some of them that make some of their songs soothing to us.Even the American’s don’t get it right in some cases lyrically.However u must understand that music serves different purposes at different points in time and for different moods as well.I appreciate the video and for one or two of u who don’t like it,well thats ur opinion.Don Jazzy himself seems to be more attached to D’banj and its obvious D’banj is a plus to him jus like he is a plus to D’banj.And as for u who is giving us foolish descriptions abt Illuminati,it’s obvious ur ignorant of it.D’banj has been wearing that necklace since early 2009 which was way before he ever in his life dreamt that he wld meet Kanye West.U can go on and on with ur gibberish and tell it to the gullible ones.

    D’Banj messed up with that Jonathan thing. It reminds me of people who say it was Africans who sold Africans into slavery.

    Why is it that all the African man is good at is corruption and showing empty swagger?

    Well, everyone should know that there is a God that existed before there was space and that in heavne there is no specail neigbourhood for rich people.

    He had enough money already yet he sold out and blamed other voters.

    Goodness gracious,this D”banj is a very big clown!I love him loads.he”s always a happy person and one can tell why he”s ready to dish out happiness at any point in time.I got inspired frm his song “Celebrate” in which he emphasized that we human beings shld never ever allow troubles/worries get the best of us.He”s simply the greatest Nigerian entertainer in recent times….Long live D”banj!!!

    Watching the New Year fireworks display on BBC1 and the 2nd song on the playlist was Oliver by D’Banj. Like him or not, even a 3 year old recognised the beat from My Backyard Crew’s video. Why do we like to talk rubbish? When Oyimbo’s talk about Coldplay and U2, they don’t waffle nothing about societies, cults and fraternities. I think all this showing off ‘Ready’ does, is unecessary. I really adore my mother! Growing up, I never heard her cuss or bitch about A N Other. I really pray for your children because to be around someone who is constantly on the alert to put another down must be exhausting…

      January 31, 2012 at 6:29 pm

      Wow. Ready comments on like 3 posts after a long time and it’s an issue. Please keep your prayers for your own children and for yourself…your decision to highlight my comment when majority of commenters disagreed with the illumnati idea and when I didn’t use any curse words (you used the b word actually) or use any words that bring ppl down is beyond me..last I checked, ‘ignorant and paranoid’ is not one of those. And where is the showing off? That I know what Free Mason and rice milk is? Hence, quick tip: identify your real issue, go back to your mother and learn more, and leave me and my unborn children out of this.

    Rrrrigghhtt! Was looking forward to seeing this video, now that I’ve seen it, I’m yet to make any head or tail of it!
    Dear Dbanj, next time you’re making a video, remember your audience aren’t 100% idiots that will swallow any and everything.
    PS: What’s all this illuminati ish about? Please give it a rest and cut the dude some slack, he has paid his dues whether y’all want to admit it or not…again note to Dbanj: Stay Humble.
