D’BANJ SIGNS DURELLA TO DB RECORDS

D’banj‘s quest for dominance in the Nigerian music scene won’t stop now; he might have lost out on signing Olamide and Davido – but he has nicked another artiste, this time a familiar friend-foe.
The self-proclaimed ‘African Michael Jacskon‘, we’ve learnt has signed his friend-turned-foe-turned-friend Oluwadamilare Okulaja better known to the public as Durella.
The move might however not come as a surprise to everyone, considering that Banger Lee (that’s D’banj’s new nickname by the way) and the ‘King of the Zanga’ Durella recently settled their differences. Some weeks back, D’banj and his DB Records crew released a single ‘Ibadi e‘ off their compilation album (D’ King’s Men) which featured a verse from Durella.
Fans were very excited to see the pair had reunited after a very long and well publicized fall out between the pop acts.
FLASHBACK
The beef between Durella and D’banj started in late 2006 when the latter accused Banger Lee of jacking his style of singing. Apparently when D’banj and Don Jazzy returned to Nigeria in 2004, they met up with Durella and soon became friends. Sources tell us that D’banj and Durella were quite close and were spotted together in the studio several times.
‘I remember when Durella followed D’banj, Don Jazzy to Jahborne’s music factory studio when D’banj wanted to record ‘Tongolo’ remix’, a source recounts.
Of course D’banj had blown up and had released his second album ‘Rundown’ in 2007 when Durella signed with TC Records and finally launched his career. It didn’t take long for Durella to blow up too with hits like ‘In da Zanga’, ‘Wiskolowiska’ and ‘Shayo’ gaining massive appeal. He also won the MTV and Zain ‘Advance Warning’ reality show in 2008.
Then came the interviews; Durella clearly stated that D’banj had stolen his style. The media of course jumped on it, comparing both artistes. Truthfully, they did sound very similar. And it seemed like D’banj was aware as he switched up the flow on the 2008 Nigerian Pop classic album ‘The Entertainer’. Their fight sort of fizzled out though as Durella later backed off. ‘D’banj is my man, aaah, I like his mo gbono feli feli jam’, Durella told Onome ‘BigTyme’ Oyaide in an interview on urban radio station Rhythm FM 93.7 in late 2008.
BACK TO THE MATTER
We are told that D’banj and DB Records bought out Durella’s contract from his present record labelIKONIC Music where the Pop act’s career has been in limbo since he signed in mid-2011 after ending his three-year contract with TC Records. His upcoming album ‘Back/Better/Bada’ has been pushed back one too many times
‘Durella has signed with D’banj, he (D’banj) bought out the contract, that’s what I can tell you’, a source in Durella’s camp tells us.
A rep for D’banj refused to respond to enquiries after asking us to send text messages to her mobile phone.

HIP HOP WORLD MAGAZINE DISSES DAVIDo’s ALBUM AND THE LAUNCH

Artist: Davido
Album: OMO BABA OLOWO *THE GENESIS*
Record Label: HKN Records
An artiste’s début album is usually the most difficult to put out and one in which a difficult balance must be struck. You have to make sure it has enough hit material to leave a lasting impression and at the same time not exhaust all your hits at the first try. David’s début album fails to strike that balance; not only does it not have enough hits to leave any impression as to his talents as a recording artiste, it possesses too many songs of the same mediocre quality, leading you to wonder if there will be a follow up attempt or if indeed there need be.
If one manages to get past the obscene and suggestive album title and the lack of meaningful lyrics, the album strikes one as an expensively procured commodity. Procured because, the album is heavily reliant on beats bought from producers. Commodity because it seems to be lacking in any style or general theme, apart from the teenaged ramblings about wanting to get in the sack with girls, complete with frenzied pleadings and much talk about bank account balances.
The redeeming qualities about the album are the already released singles like “Back When ft. Naeto C”, whose story of his broke days contradicts the title of the album; Omo Baba Olowo (Son Of A Rich Man), the percussion-heavy “Dami Duro” produced by the mercurial Shizzy. Curiously missing from the album are the rumored collaborations with other artistes like Wizkid and Waned Coal. Not really rumored, but rather claimed by the artiste himself. Probably only people in the HKN Gang know the real story of what happened to the singles.
But there are other features to look out for in the album, that Is apart from other members of HKN, B-Red and Sina Rambo giving decidedly unimpressive showings in “Nu Skul Tinz”, “Visa”, “Overseas” and “Enter The Centre”. Ice Prince gives a flat delivery in “Feel Alright”, a joint produced by Dr. Frabz, Kay Switch is anonymous in “Dollars in The Bank” while even 2face is surprisingly average in “For You”. May-D is present in the last track of the album, “Bless Me” and the less that is said about that, the better.
All in all, David Adeleke’s first album fails to impress on many fronts. He would need more than his wealthy provenance to make it stick in this Nigerian music industry.

19 YEAR OLD DAVIDO SLAPPED BY A MOPOL OFFICER

The 19 year old must have forgotten the saying that “pride goes before a fall”
Davido fell mightily at a show which was sponsored by NOKIA recently performed at in Abuja.
The young MTN Pulse ambassador was obviously drunk,drinking over his limit and in his drunk state insisted on going back to their lodging in his friend’s car instead of the car that brought all artiste.
As they were on their to the hotel,they were flagged down by MOPOL officers, Davido refused to stop and in his drunken state started raining abuses and shouting the officers down and screaming “don’t you know me, what the fuck is wrong with you guys…” and asking the officers how dare they stop his friend’s car.
Obviously the Officer who did not know that Davido is actually a popular artiste basically in Lagos got infuriated and lahed out a slap on the Dami Duro crooner’s cheek and threatened to shoot the boy and drench him with his blood.
After this incident,Davido transferred his anger onto Nosa. Nosa was the artiste who invited Davido to perform Nosa, he is currently a stakeholder in Limelite Records which angered Nosa, since Davido was being belligerent to Nosa,telling him to shut the f**k up otherwise he would slap him as hard as the Mopol Officer did.
According to witnesses,Nosa who has signeD artistes like Munachii Abii,Freestyle could not bear it for a boy that age to rant nonsense at him and “He could not withstand a boy of Davido’s age talk to him in such manner for trying to help him realize his mistakes and as such, had to quietly walk away. Anyway pride goes before fall so my advice is the billionaire son should thread softly.”
Davido is signed onto Def Jam Africa which D’banj Is the C.E.O, he is expected to alongside Senegalese Konvict Music boss and singer, Akon,work on the remix of his rave making single, Dami Duro,
Davido had better take life easy,the road is still gonna be rosy

KOKO MASTER D-BANJ SIGNS DAVIDO

There’s no doubt that DAVIDO is here to stay. Less than 2 years in the Nigerian music industry,with just 2 hit singles davido has just been getting bigger and more successful.
He has just been signed by d-banj(who is signed on to Mercury Records UK through G.O.O.D music)to Def Jam Africa which he is the President with k-switch. The label is going to be affiliated to Island Def Jam Africa.
The signing took place at the rising pop star’s Lekki’s mansion involving the star’s father Mr Deji Adeleke,his manager Asa,D-banj and his manager on Wednesday.
Earlier the two star were spotted at a strippers club Diamond of Atlanta Gentleman’s club in Atlanta,US.
When Davido’s manager Asa was contacted,he did not confirm the story only to say that the whole deal is under wraps.
What do YOU think?
