Industry News: (VIDEO) D’Banj Makes Appearance in Houston Alongside Kenya Moore, Performs Old Hits


DBanj Kenya MooreThis story gets a “you don’t say?” from me, not so much as to D’Banj’s appearance and performance but as to Kenya Moore ‘Real House Wives of Atlanta’s’ appearance. Clearly the event organizer thought her appearance was necessary and secured her as a  host for the event. I can’t knock either her or her management’s hustle. They handled their business when they were called upon to do so.

Nevertheless, folks, let’s start first from within and energize our base.  Nigerians both on U.S. soil and in Nigeria, what about your local Nigerian-American or other African (other African groups in the USA-American celebs with a foot in Hollywood?If you don’t strengthen your local entertainment communities by investing in these professionals/personalities, both in the USA and at home, who is supposed to do so?

There are so many Nigerians with a strong foothold in Hollywood and/or the music industry that could have hosted and received payment for this event. Adding to their economic well can only mean success for us all and the opportunity to build strong evangelists and a bridge that can permit access and the forging of true  strategic and strong  relationships with Hollywood’s movers and shakers. Other groups have invested in their own. When will we start investing in ourselves?

Watch the video.

Catch you all later.

Stay blessed people.
