D’Banj is constantly on the rise and ever since his official “Oliver Twist” single dropped online, his buzz has been  escalating. With his “Oliver Twist” debuting at No.9 on Itunes UK Top 100 Downloads and his “Oliver Twist Remixes” album charting, D’banj is in a ploy to make African history.

So, while the “Oliver Twist” virus is spreading, D’Banj, alongside Ghanaian music giant, Sarkodie, is in a deal with one of Ghana’s leading telecommunications companies, Vodafone.

Here is an exclusive interview with D’Banj in Ghana where he talks about his new label (The Def Jam Africa label we’ve been hearing about), the Vodafone music portal, his new single with Kanye West, collaborating and touring with Sarkodie and so much more.

    Pls Dbanj carry on…. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee you. This isnt a beef with marvin, its Dbanj moving forward. Forward ever backward never. You either get on the boat or get lost. Soo sick of pple making him look like he killed someone. The dude just wants a bigger picture and there is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with that. Pls FREE the guy. Love you Dbanj. God bless you and success is surely yours. Pls dont ever insult or belittle any of the marvin crew in any of ur songs like Dr. Sid and Wande coal immaturely did. Just keep giving us good music. You can never pls humans especially Nigerians.

    Sorry for you. You don’t know who Kanye is ( Or now you do). Or maybe you know. You don’t mind selling your soul for fame. Good luck. There is a reason Jazzy didnt want to join them. You will find out. Hope it will not be to late for you.

  • konnie May 15, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    thumbs up.

  • marvel May 15, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    Screw Don Jazzy. I am fed up of the link. He is a producer not D Banj’s Siamese twin for crying out loud. I am very proud of you, D Banj. I don’t know who produced the other 9 artist’s tracks on the list. Team DBanj!

  • Dumex May 15, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    carry brou u’re d boss don’t mind evil of progress… Ur gud music will evidence to show wrld dat u wer d want kept Mo’hit 2gethr Go on d sky is ur staring point…

  • Lovinit May 16, 2012 at 6:35 am

    Congrats D’banj! U can only go higher. I wonder y Nigerians r jst so sentimental about stuv like dz. Business is Business 4 chrissakes, no sentiments. If u wanna rise higher and ur current space doesn’t allow, thn find a bigger space. Evn Don Jazzy has moved on to do his own thing n who sayz dey wldn’t collaborate in d nearest future again…Abeggy. Way 2go Ski’banjjjjj!!!

  • feyi May 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

    what i don’t understand is why this d’banj de beg him fans every given opportunity. d’banj begged like this when he first came out in nigeria but after he became a star na order him begin give for tv….. ‘Kokolette go and buy my album now’, ‘if you don’t have my album you are on a long thing’ e.t.c now you de beg? na who send you go global? mstchew!!!!!! hate how all these celebrities exploit their fans. look, d’banj incase u forgot no artiste is patronised out of solace. e no de happen. the only people that will patronise you if you don’t do as expected are ur *coughs, coughs* diehard fans wherever they are. if your music no sweet the people e de sweet before you are ON YOUR OWN shugbo???? no wuruwuru for global market….. halt embarrassing yourself with ‘i beg my fans’ abeg. and before mavin gangs abi the so called ‘team don jazzy’ begin laugh am abeg make una go sitdown put somewhere *walks away*

  • Blackknight May 17, 2012 at 11:19 am

    D’Banj, one thing you have going for you is your charm and your attractive personality.Build on these two,no auditorium will be empty for you.You have shown that you don’t necessarily have to be the best rapper/singer, to wow the crowd.You were the heart and soul of the defunct MOHITS and am sure that charm will still carry you on.Keep it up D’Banj and don’t let the women bring you down.Avid baby mama wahala and enjoy your destiny…..

  • Yinka June 7, 2012 at 12:12 pm
