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.”

News just reached us at GidiNoize that The Kokomaster,Dbanj is planning a new T.V show called THE NEXT ENTERTAINER.For those of you who do not know,this will be Dbanj’s second show to hit the big screen as just a couple of months ago he did a show called KOKOMANSION.
Kokomansion was about finding the ideal woman so yeah there were a lot of ladies around however this new show is a talent hunt kinda thing.Dbanj will be searching for people who can entertain and like he said in his song; The Entertainer—>you dont have to make sense to entertain so yeah Im guessing you dont have to make sense or have a mahhhhhdddddd voice to win it.
The show will be starting next year and we at GidiNoize will be sure to keep you on tab with all the details about the show so watch this space!
We at GidiNoize just heard D’prince’ 3 new singles; ‘Ooze’ , ‘Omoba’ and ‘I like what I see’.Ooze features Dbanj and Wande Coal,I must say this song is pretty HOT! and I love the way Wande Coal says OOZZZZEEE..lol on the other hand Omoba has a whole different feel but is really nice too,Wande Coal tried! and yh ‘I like what I see’ is really nice too….Don Jazzy sure did his thing for his young brova(yh D’prince is DonJazzy’s brother).
