D’banj was paid N150k for his first show in Nigeria after returning from London

 

The show made him realize how popular he was, and so he decided to remain in the country and he blew up in the process

He never knew how popular he was, neither did he know that his single ‘Tongolo’ was a National Anthem in the country. I paid him 150k for the show. He realized this after the show and didn’t contemplate the decision to stay back in the country to further pursue his soaring musical career.

I could only afford international flight for Dbanj without Don Jazzy, but he came from Lagos to Abuja with Durella

Like a Nollywood flick, he and Don Jazzy took over the industry with Mohit Records that eventually gave birth to so many artists. It was a renaissance in the Nigerian music industry.

Today, I remain undoubtedly proud of my friend and cousin from Shagamu in Ogun State @iambangalee cause it remains difficult to beat the record he has set in the industry.

Happy 40th Birthday in less than 1day to my friend, my brother.
God Bless Bangalee…”
