Most people didn’t expect me to be this happily married –D’banj
Award–winning entertainer, D’banj has opened up on his music, marriage in new interview with The sun.
He revealed that most people don’t expect him to be happy in his marriage.
Talking about your music career, you seem to have been a little bit quiet…
I have been busy with other businesses. I love to tell people that music gets you into the room. But what you do once inside that room is totally up to you. You have known me for a long time and you know I have always been focused, and I was more focused especially when I became a family man. This is my sixth year of being married, and since then I have looked for different platforms where I can invest and fly. If you Google Jay Z or search for the richest musicians in the world, you will see that only 10% of their wealth is probably from music.
How far is your venture into agribusiness?
That’s what I love most. From Shoprite to many other big stores in Nigeria, my ‘Koko Garri’ is on their shelves and doing well.
As a married man, don’t you miss those days and what has really sustained your marriage?
Let me start with what has sustained my marriage, as most people probably didn’t expect me to be this happily married. It is
God but it is also very important for me when I say that I’m so happy that I got married when I got married. When I decided to quit the bachelor’s life, I thought at that stage in my life I needed to grow an empire, and the best way to do that was to have a best friend as partner, and then you have to be true to yourself. So, I believe all these put together, I pray to God believing in what the Bible says that ‘he who findeth a wife finds a good thing’.
So, I got myself my best friend, my best partner who understands everything about me, and we have been growing together. Oh yes, once in a while, I do miss all those good old bachelor’s days.
But I’m also so happy that there is a difference between Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo and D’banj Kokomaster. Of course, I still get those kokolets rushing to me on stage but I always tell myself that ‘hey, you’re committed to someone’ and that’s what life is.
