We wouldn’t exactly say that the kickoff of his 10th year anniversary went great. What with the numerous criticism the first leg of the event got, most saying it was a flop.
All that hasn’t deterred Dapo Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj, from being grateful for a musical journey which has spanned for 10 years.
In a chat with WG, D’banj talked about the highpoint of his ten years journey in the world of music.
“My first single came out October 2004. My first album was released in march 2005 and as at that time I always say I was an entertainer and I hoped and prayed that I will be the biggest to come out of Africa. I will be a businessman, you know you always have different types of dreams. It’s been a great journey in 10 years and when I count my blessings, I see that God has been so faithful. There are places that I have been to, that I never thought about. Though, I dream big, I have performed on some stages I never thought I would dare to,” he says.
About the highpoint of his career: “The high point of my career will be last year when I gave a speech at the World Bank TEDx. That for me was different, because it had nothing to do with music. Being on that platform with those caliber of people, showed that you are not just an artiste, but also representing a generation.”
