It is a well-known fact that self-acclaimed Koko Master, D’Banj, has had an illustrious career. He has consistently topped charts and ruled hearts all over the world. With a number of albums to his credit, there is no gain-saying the fact that his debut effort, ‘No Long Thing’ was what thrust him into the spotlight. The album which contained tracks like ‘Tongolo,’ ‘Mobolowon’ among others was so well-received by fans that it provided him a launch pad to further cement his place with the stars.
However, many would be shocked to know that the award-winning album which was produced by D’banj’s former partner, Don Jazzy, was recorded in just two days! D’banj revealed this much himself during a recent interview with an international entertainment TV channel. In his words, “We did the album in two days together with Don Jazzy.”
Among other things, D’banj also disclosed that contrary to popular opinion, Kanye West didn’t sign him as an artiste. He said, “Kanye didn’t sign me as an artiste. It was a joint venture type of arrangement because I still had my African fans, which was the only world I knew.” He further stated that it was Don Jazzy who initiated their much publicised break-up.
