Dapo Oyebanjo popularly known as Dbanj has found his way into Nigerian entertainment industry hall of fame.Toping the charts for weeks and making millions of Naira performing at high profile events,Dbanj turned instant hit shortly after he returned to Nigeria with his partner,Don Jazzy in 2004.
The transition from just a musician into a mega star within a short period can turn into a best selling motivational book just like “Think big and grow rich, written by Napoleon Hill.
I covered the first album launch of Dbanj some years back at the White House,Ikeja.
The venue was the first floor of the building and we had few people in attendance including the mother of the musician. Dbanj even performed in the hall. That day, you can count how many people came.
By the time,Dbanj would be having the second album launch, he had already turned a maga star. The incumbent governor of Lagos state, Mr Raji Babatunde Fashola and his prodecessor in office,Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu were part of the guests.
The event took place inside the biggest hall in Eko Hotel and Suites,Victoria Island. The attraction,design and representation of both events were way too far apart.
