So while looking around the internet, something on BellaNaija caught my eye and I thought I’ll share it with you all.
Here you go
Bella Naija has just received exclusive news from a reliable source. According to the source, Nigerian musical superstar, D’Banj is in the process of finalizing a major international record contract. The source is a staff of one of the major international labels, here is his/her account of events:
“It was during a meeting at the record label that I work with (One of the largest international record labels), this particular meeting is a weekly meeting to review new and potential signings. I reviewed the items on the agenda and suddenly I saw the name D’Banj. I was like ah na our boy?! (Didn’t say that out loud though…hehe). The VP leading the meeting led us through how he “discovered” D’Banj at a recent event in LA. From the figures they mentioned, our boy is getting major $$$ for him and million dollar budget for promotion and artist development – the plan is to give him a major international push. Even compared to what they offer ‘urban’ stars, the contract is way above that. Very major! I was proud o”
There you have it! Congrats to D’Banj!
In addition to this good news, D’Banj will be starring in the Broadway musical version of Fela! The Musical. From the available information, the show will be touring around the world soon and D’Banj will play the lead during this tour.
Putting 2 and 3 together, I have a strong feeling that this record label just might be JayZ’s label because JayZ happens to be one of the producers of Fela The Musical and do you really think that its just a coincidence that Dbanj will be starring as the lead in this musical as well as getting a record deal on one of the biggest international labels?????Hmmm!!!
Well time will tell!
Hmmmm amebos, did I say they came together, why are you getting excited?? lol.Sorry for getting your hopes high but I do not know if they came together but what I do know is that they both attended the birthday party and they both looked very happy in their pictures :).Sadly there were no shots together but here are the pictures from the party anyway.
But if one part of a couple reveals that he is going out with someone as high profile as yourself, it makes the story credible if you can actually confirm this…
Genevieve “Dbanj is an adult and he has said something. Let’s just leave it at that…”
But is it real or a publicity stunt? Is Dbanj lying?
Genevieve “Does he lie?”
Genevieve “I am not inferring or insinuating anything. One person has said something and that really is enough. I am not saying I will never talk about it, but for now I do not wish to say anything about the matter.”

A couple of days ago Kelly Hansome released a diss track aimed at the MOHITS CREW and yesterday an animator released the video.
The ‘Maga Don Pay’ crooner, Kelly Hansome in his recently released song called ‘Igwe (kom kom)’ disses the entire Mo’hits crew,from saying Wande Coal looked like a COW to saying The whole mohits crew are MUMU’S.According to our findings Wande Coal was said to have Ignited the beef with his song ‘Na who born the maga’ which was supposedly aimed at Kelly Hansome.
Just a couple of weeks back we reported about the MI/Iceberg slim beef.Whats really happening in the entertainment industry in Gidi,could it be that the not so big stars are beefing the big ones to get attention????Well lets watch and see..Its quite entertaining I must say!
Are the Mo’hits crew gonna reply?Or just Ignore Mr Handsome??watch this space to find out.

3. WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR COMEDIC TALENT?
Uuuum! I discovered my talent right from day one.
I have always had passion for comedy. I have always loved saying funny things and people always laugh.
It all began in my Secondary days cos’ I was in a boarding school. Whenever we came on holiday, I watched the likes of Ali Baba, Julius Agwu, Basket Mouth and them lot crack jokes on TV. I loved the crowd response and all. So, I always used to cram their jokes to burst whenever I return back to school (boarding house). People from then began to like me and what I did. From time to time, I grew out from cracking other comedian’s jokes to cracking my own jokes and it was nice and I loved it.
I got into university and then starting getting paid and all.
