There have been wild jubilation from the teeming fans of Dapo Oyebanji popularly referred to as D’banj with the news that he will be teaming up with his former partner and boss of the Mo Hits Records label, Don Jazzy.
The “Why me” crooner is set to celebrate his 10th year anniversary alongside Don Jazzy (Michael Collins Ajereh) who is also celebrating his 10th year this same year. The news – which is something that the fans have been expecting – was broken in an interview with Vanguard.
According to one of their fans, Oyinda Kush, “It’s a good thing if they come together again as I would pay my life savings to watch them”. Another fan expressed delight in the reunion tagging it as the reunion of the century! He further stated that “it is a good thing; Nigerians should expect something great from these old great friends. We need another Oliver Twist”.
Another fan who felt elated with the news said even Innocent Idibia popularly known as 2Baba begged them to do same and everyone would be happy to hear tunes from DBanj like the ones of the Why Me days. Another fan who simply identified herself as Blesyn opined that the separation really pained her to the marrow. She also pleaded that they make not just a single but an album together with the entire the Mavin crew involved.
It is also no news that the bond of friendship is set to grow deeper as they have both been signed on as Ambassadors of a popular brand in Nigeria, Diageo. This endorsement deal is expected to see them go on tours, attend shows, grant interviews while working with the brand together.
