Singer D’banj has reacted to a statement made by Eedris Abdulkareem where the latter said he is not talented.

In the interview with Goldmyne TV, Eedris Abdulkareem said:

“I love him (Don Jazzy); and you know why I love him? He has a drive. The biggest mistake someone like D’banj made was to leave Don Jazzy. You know why? D’banj no get talent. Na razzmatazz he get. Don Jazzy has the technical backup to produce D’banj and make him sound very nice. I love Don Jazzy for that.”

Reacting to the statement while speaking to PUNCH’s Saturday Beats, D’banj said:

“At first, I did not see the video where Eedris spoke about me and initially, I thought it was something else till people sent me the video. I have seen different videos of him talking about different artistes that are young enough to be his kids. I would have thought that if he was such a role model, there were better ways he could pass his message across but I have nothing against him. I have nothing more to say about him. I feel people just have different ways of expressing themselves.”

Speaking on being a father, D’banj said:

“Being a father is very humbling. I have always acted as a father to a lot of young artistes from the days of Mo Hits but now, I have a child of my own. When he was born, I was in the hospital and as I held his hands, it made me realise that to whom much is given, much is expected. This is someone’s life that I am responsible for. It is not just about fatherhood but now I have a family. Before I became a family man, I took decisions without looking back. I could decide to sleep on the Mainland; I could decide to chill with my friends. But now, I have responsibilities. I have people that I am responsible for and we are growing together. The good thing is that I have a great partner and I love it. Each time I look into the eyes of my son, I know that it is real; I have to keep working harder.”

    Eadris is very correct in all his saying
    Dbanj has no talent whatsoever

    Shows make unnecessary noise yes
