Kanye West and D'Banj

Okayafrica TV: Nigerian Superstar D’Banj Goes Global with Kanye

G.O.O.D Music signee and Nigerian superstar D’Banj, known in his own country for such bangers as “Mr. Endowed” (for real), “Fall In Love”, and “Oliver Twist”, made his US debut at Irving Plaza on February 19th to a sold out room (and in a bedazzled silver dinner jacket – no undershirt necessary).

Okayafrica TV caught up with the highly animated pop star — along with his Nigerian label-mates Dr. Sid, Wande Coal, and younger bro K-Switch — to talk shop. Subjects included: Kanye West, Kanye West, the African Michael Jackson, building the pop bridge from Africa to the US, and being signed by Kanye West. With this cast of characters, we can’t wait to watch the D’Banj race to the throne.
