Award-winning Hip Hop artiste, Banji Oladapo,
popularly known as Dbanj has shaded record label
owners in Nigeria.
D’banj, who was one of the panellists who
discussed the topic, ‘Changing The Game: Artistes
As Leaders’ at the 2018 Social Media Week Lagos,
said most label owners are operating blindly as they
know nothing about music.
The Eja Nla crooner went further stating one of the
challenges facing the Nigerian Music Industry
“Most of the new generation record labels are
founded by Yahoo boys. You must understand first,
why are you coming into music.
“Nigerian artistes need a lot of capacity building. It
is only in Nigeria that the owner of a record label
doesn’t know anything about music.”
D’banj also opened up on his music career
revealing that he got into the music business due to
fear of poverty.
On branding, the singer said;
“Just like any product, you must always evolve. The
fear of being poor made me think outside the box.
This is one of the factors that drove me into music,”
