BN Bytes: Lebete! More Cash for D’banj…”Oliver Twist” featured in Malibu Black Caribbean Rum “Mr Moon” Commercial

Published

 on

Last night, D’banj rocked the stage at his concert in London and there is even more good news for the Nigerian star, anyone who knows the ins and outs of the music international industry, knows that royalties from commercials and films are a major revenue generator for musicians and producers.

D’banj’s track “Oliver Twist” is featured in the new international ad for Malibu Black as part of the brand’s “Mr Moon” campaign.
Malibu is a popular rum brand flavoured with coconut liquor to give the drink its signature Caribbean taste.

Congrats D’banj! Though the details of their split was never made public, since Don Jazzy produced, co-wrote and featured on the track, he should be getting his cheque in the mail too…so congrats Don Jazzy!

    D’banj should keep more of these deals rolling cos he sure cant do a good single without don-jazzy.. talking from listening to Oyato experience.

    Take two. Remember asking you guys to please notify Dbanj and Don Jazzy on their sound in a Bacardi commercial. I don’t have their contact and tried to look for it rather unsuccessfully. It is been used here in the states and I am not sure they know. Make them get their due dats all

    @Oyin,don’t u think u are too quick to judge?D’banj can’t make a good song without Don Jazzy,did u say???Don Jazzy indeed!My dear,we all understand that D’banj is clearly used to fast music and all so the fact that OYATO was a slow one doesn’t make it a Failure like u have indirectly stated!Good listeners who wld av come across that song regardless of whatever interpretations ppl made out of the content would know that that song was a TUNE!It was an unusual D’banj tune and a good number of unbiased and neutral people likes the harmonica sound all the way and even D’banj’s vocals in that song.I personally didn’t think before now that his vocals were quite satisfactory so as far as i am concerned,he dis above average in totality as regards that song!
    @Annie dear,according to Me’s comments,i don’t see her/his comments as being Mumuish like u av put it o darling.Wot he or she has written is the gospel truth!I understand love that ur not a fan of D’banj and i can clearly see that u av atleast made an effort not to hate on him based on ur initial comment on this post but my dearr friend,D’banj is clearly a born STAR!Some ppl jus av the start quality in them regardless of how little some of us think their talents are forgetting that evryone has more than one talent and as far as music is concerned,we clearly (many of us) limit the definition of that comples word TALENT!More importantly,God’s blessings in any form of human endeavour superceeds any form of talent….All in one,more power to ur elbow D’banj!

    I love Don Jazzy but I cannot take you (fans) seriously if you are satisfied with that Mavin album. No way! I expected more from Don J. I hope he comes out with something dope soon. Nigerians are used to fast food music, movies, etc. We are content with mediocrity.
