Dbanj, once touted as one of Nigeria's afri-hiphop pioneers, semingly had his profile plummet this year after he split with former partner and hitmaker, Don Jazzy. The music producer went on to form his own label with Tiwa Savage, D'Prince, Dr. Sid and others. Dbanj continued solo for a while and then also formed his label, Lee Records.
However, many commentators insist that he is not doing as well as Don Jazzy and that the only way Dbanj can climb back into the consciousness of Nigerian music afficionados is to get back with the producer. Dbanj's fans went on the same train of thought today after he shared the picture below.
Dbanj captioned the picture which showed an award plaque for his single as follows;
Even in my sleep, I'm still on top of the World. You gotta be #feelingthenigga . Thanks #Afrima for the award. #EwaNaBeans #DoAgricMost of the comments on the post referred to his diminished popularity until this one below...
