Quote of the Day: D’banj Speaks About Mo’Hits To Ebony Magazine

Coming from Africa I’m my own manager, I have my own label called Mo’ Hits with my artists Dr. Sid, Wande Coal, Don Jazzy, D’Prince and K-Switch. I own Mo’ Hits and we’ve won numerous awards by the grace of God.
Read what brought about that below….
EBONY.com: How did you join Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label?
 D’BANJ: I had a concert in Dubai and when we pulled up to the airport’s first class lounge and a hostess ran up to me with a plaque with Kanye’s face on it, asking me to sign it. I said ‘I’m not Kanye West, I’m D’banj but Kanye West is coming? All eyes open.’ Then my manager spoke to Kanye, came back and told me ‘He’ll give you five minutes.’ I walked over — as an African man I’m always prepared — and I played my music ‘Stand Out,’ ‘Fall In Love’ and ‘Scapegoat’ for him on my iPod. Before we knew it, I’d almost missed my flight and he invited me to New York.
Coming from Africa I’m my own manager, I have my own label called Mo’ Hits with my artists Dr. Sid, Wande Coal, Don Jazzy, D’Prince and K-Switch. I own Mo’ Hits and we’ve won numerous awards by the grace of God. Being with Kanye for the last eight months and me leading a successful label in Africa, I’ve learned a lot and I believe people will see what we’re going to do. I signed with Kanye in June and that same month I won the BET Award for Best International Act. My New York concert isn’t done by G.O.O.D. Music, it’s done by Live Nation, meaning I’m already a moving machine. So who better to introduce me to the global world than Kanye West, a crazy genius?

  10. I am so tired of this fool! He is NOT even that talented. Where is all this ego and boastful pride coming from?

    This is why illiterates often achieve a little success and then fail. Why does he think signing with Kanye West is anything but an unproven gamble? He is very unlikely to crossover to a mainstream US audience and the African population in the Diaspora is too small and dispersed to form a solid international commercial base. He shouldn't alienate his real fan base yet oh! All his nonsense talk is just annoying the heck out of me.

  11. No matter what anyone says, the fact is Mohits is Dbanj and Dbanj is mohits. Without Dbanj, mohits would have been a studio in ajegunle. The guy is a great entertainer, with charm and charisma. When we see the truth make we say am. Don jazzy try, but i think he needs Dbanj more than Dbanj needs him. See how weak the other Mohits crew are without Dbanj. Anyway, i want to see the metamorphorsis and acceptance of Dbanj's style through yeezy. Should be interesting.
