Nigerian singer Dbanj Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known as D’banj, has congratulated Wizkid over his ongoing music tour in London.
A few days ago, Wizkid and Tems‘s performance at the O2 Arena, which can hold 20,000 persons, got many tongues wagging on social media.
Wizkid became a topic on all social media platforms as he made Nigerians proud and many took to their social media page to celebrate him.
In the same vein, Dbanj, in a post shared on his Instagram story, said he is proud of Wizkid and urged him to continue breaking new grounds.
He wrote: Congratulations to my brother @wizkiday. So proud of you bro. keep breaking new grounds. Afrobeat to the word.
It was recalls Banky W has opened up on how he saw the ‘superstar in Wizkid even before the latter became one.
Speaking during a radio interview shared on Instagram, he said: “I am proud of what Wizkid is doing. I named his first album, ‘Superstar’, because that is what I wanted people to refer to him as, not as an up-and-coming act that he was back then.’’
“That is why it is good to invest in people. We played a small part in their beginning but look at what he (Wizkid) is now doing for others. As an artiste, it is important to find one’s voice. One can adopt anything from anyone but one should be the best version that one can be. That is what has been working for me.”
Asked why he shut down his record label , he answered: “I think that was the best thing for us. I think we had done the label part and the majority of those who were under the label found their feet in the industry when they were with us. As far back as 2016, I knew I didn’t have the energy for managing an active label. A year after I shut down the record label, I focused more on working with corporate clients.’’
