Dbanj has revealed in a recent interview that he had signed Davido to his DKM label in 2014 but had to let go of him as the rising star’s parents appealed to allow him go back to school.
Dbanj was speaking on Spindle Magazine’s Artist On Artist with UK group The Fedz and he touched on being inspired not only by older artistes but also younger ones.
‘I remember in 2014 when I went back to Nigeria. Some young guy who used to work for me brought an artist to me and said he wanted me to sign him and I signed the artist. I remember we gave the artist a Rolex watch as a signing-on fee. I signed the artist and I got a call later on that the parents of the artist wanted to meet with me. So I went and I saw the parents and they said please I want my boy to go to school. I know you have signed him but I really want him to go to school. So I said okay, let him go to school because that is what you want and then after that, he can come back. The boy I am talking about is one of the biggest artist coming in from this new generation which is Davido…’
In 2014 however, Davido had already become a bonafide A-List artiste, having floated his own OBO label that had released a long list of hits including Dami Duro, Ekuro, Gobe and Skelewu. Is Dbanj’s calendar faulty or was Davido truly looking to get signed by Dbanj despite is success at the time?
