D’banj dedicated his award to his erstwhile business partner and producer, Don Jazzy, with whom he began his journey as an entertainer, under the defunct Mo’Hits Records.
“I wanna invite thank my father, even though we are not….God bless you Don Jazzy. This award is dedicated to D’banj and Don Jazzy.” D'banj said in an emotion-laded acknowledgement speech.
This award is a good addition to D’banj’s stellar career which has seen him evolve at every turn as a singer, all-round entertainer, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and role model.
The year 2015 also marks the 10th year anniversary of D’banj as an entertainer, and will see him release a 7-track visual EP.
Titled ‘I’m D’banj: An Epic Journey’, the new mixtape from the Nigerian music veteran will contain seven songs, with each possessing a video.
In January 2015, D'banj gave a revealing interview about his career, controversy and evolution as an artiste on 'The Truth' with Olisa Adibua. Watch the visual below.
