Music Business | (Video) D’Banj on Tim Westwood, Talks Kanye GOOD Music Deal, Rich Catalog Inherited from Mo’Hits Split, Don Jazzy, Record Labels in Nigeria and Future Plans for his Music Career


Several things folks before you watch the clip below of D’Banj’s recent appearance on the Tim Westwood show:

1. As an AML reader, you have had the exclusive look into what really happened with the D’Banj and Kanye West deal from the insider involved in brokering the deal. If you missed it, click here to read it.

2. Over time, Tim Westwood has gained strong rapport with D’Banj and to me, the interview felt more like a pre-planned script that lacked the spontaneity Westwood is known for. Nevertheless, D’banj does share some accurate history on Nigeria’s music industry and what he foresees for the future.

3. I find D’Banj’s discussion on the value of his catalog inherited from Don Jazzy rather interesting.

I believe that with D’Banj cleaning up his brand image as he has been doing of late, there is room for him to do serious damage and the best is indeed yet to come. Interesting times ahead.
