      Eja Nla is the biggest african music export of the 21 century. He has used his music as an entertainer and brand to sell Africa music to the world and many still yet to come from him.

      Tubaba wasnt signed to any american label before african queen went international…you cant compare them at all… unlike dbanj they look for tuface. If tuface wanted to go international, trust me he would. Dbanj to tuface? Is it by kanyewest or jay-z? Abeg lets hear word

    I cringed all through the interview literally. He barely answered the questions and was just unprofessionall all through.

      Thank you. D banj suffers from the same syndrome of grandiose like Kanye. Only difference is, Kanye has talent to back it up. D banj, is not doing well at all, compared to how he would have been doing. Kanye gave him fake promise ring and it all fell flat in his face. He needs to reevaluate his life, music is not working for him. He should go into producing, directing or something. His new songs barely hit million viewers. I feel sorry for him bcos he’s trying to save face by hyping himself up but we all know the truth.

      I agree. DBanj is like the typical Nigerian politicians who suddenly looses touch with reality and remains that way till he gets thrown out or stoned by his people.

      D’banj is always blowing his own trumpet and overrating his relationships with all these American’s stars to save his face for his dwindling music career. Kanye gave me this, Jay-Z gave me that, Bros let others do the shouting for you. Empty barrel makes the louder noise, Mr Michael Jackson of Nigeria, by the way, when are you releasing your album under the GOOD Music label, are still signed in ?

    This dude is breaking barriers for african music to the world, people might blame him in recent years due to his lack of having hit song , but this due is selling african music to the world.

    Personally, I won’t say Dbanj is doing great. No hate here but aside the international recognition he is receiving, his songs barely hit. His songs are not hitting home (for me). For the love of God, I still can’t forgive him for what he did to “Oliver Twist”. Wowww beat but the lyrics…. *shed tears. The only relevance he has is his tie to international artist but his songs..hell no. MY OPINION PLEASE.

    Dbanj suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. That is why he goes from failed relationship to failed relationship both personal and professional. I pity him in a way, most Narcissists don’t even know that they are narcissists.

    He considers himself the Michael Jackson, P.Diddy & Jay Z of Africa? Mama said, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. I don’t know if to laugh or to vex, abeg make I go before I pop a vein.

    Bangalee you know I love you but please don’t make that mistake again. Comparing yourself to Micheal? My Micheal? That I cried so much when he died? That I grew up with his name on my lips when it comes to music? I just shed a tear now. Please don’t do that again. You can compare yourself to Jayz. But not Micheal. Don’t ever do that again. It’s like Tiwa comparing herself to Whitney. No! Water get level o.

    Micheal Jackson of African with barely any hit ! this man must be a joker.

    D’banj, Tim Westwood called you out on that Kanye chain and explained to the world how Kanye took his property backstage. STOP LYING!!!! Ahn…ahn..
