UPDATE: It's Official, D'banj signs w/ Kanye West + G.O.O.D. Music + "Fall In Love" Video

[embed width="560"][/embed]


It's official, looks like one of Nigeria's top pops, D'banj of Mo’Hits Records has signed to Kanye West's label, G.O.O.D. Music, along with Mo'Hits Don Jazzy. (We had posted the video of D'banj + Don Jazzy signing the papers with Kanye, however over the weekend this vid was made "private"). The news comes on the heals of Dbanj's twitter just the other day, "Just like yesterday myself and my brother did Tongolo. 7yrs later Mo' Hits signs with Good Music. Best birthday gift ever. God thank u." Such a collaboration will be a huge thrust for the Nigerian artist, situating him to become one of Nigeria's most famous contemporary artists - and hopefully breaking him here in the West. Check out the video above for D'banj's biggest hit to date, "Fall In Love" ft. Genevieve.
