Music star D’banj in an interview revealed that he once signed superstar singer Davido to his record label with a Rolex wristwatch in 2014.
Talking about signing Davido, D’banj says “I remember in 2014 when I went back to Nigeria, some young boy who used to work for me brought an artiste to me and said he wanted me to sign the artiste. I remember we gave the artiste a Rolex as a signing-on fee. I signed the artiste and then I got a call later on and they said the parents of the artiste wanted to meet with me, so I went and they said ‘please I want my boy to go to school’.” He adds that “And to look at today that the boy I’m talking about is one of the biggest artistes out of this generation, which is Davido”.
The singer also talks about his inspiration, being compared to Fela Kuti, the growth of music in Africa and much more.
