D’banj Talks About Why He’s Remained Unmarried

D’banj Talks About Why He’s Remained Unmarried

In a chat with Saturday Beats, the Koko Master, D’banj, revealed he had wanted to get married at the age of 30 but has yet to do so five years after. The DB Records boss has been linked with a string of beauties which includes Genevieve Nnaji, Jennifer Obayuwana, daughter of Polo boss, John Obayuwana, billionaire daughter, Adama Ndimi and South African diva, Bonang Matheba. Apparently, none has been able to tame the 35-year old eligible bachelor.

Below are excerpts from the interview:

On why he is still not married despite being successful:

“While growing up, there were some goals I set for myself and at 35, I have accomplished most of them. Sadly, I have not accomplished the primary goals. The main one is marriage. By now, I thought I would have been married. I had always thought I would have a child before the age of 30. That fantasy did not become a reality because I wanted to strengthen my brand. I wanted to be sure that I was on the right path career-wise because as a kid, you need to crawl before you can walk and eventually run. I wanted to be sure I surpass all boundaries and reach a certain stage where I can easily balance my work and family. That is the main reason why I am not married.”

On his other achievements which have surpassed his widest imaginations:

“Apart from marriage, one other thing I desire to have is the Grammy but that is already in the pipeline and it would be acquired soon. I didn’t know I would meet Kanye West while I was dreaming big as a child. But I dreamt that I would go places and people would hear my song all over the world. I also dreamt that Caucasians would dance to my music. I dreamt I would top music charts across the world and all that has happened. I have dreamt of performing in front of thousands of people on a global stage and I have achieved that. For all these I am grateful to God.”

    We both know the STRONG connection btw koko master and don J…and it aint about the music!

    Once upon a time the “bond” between them was, well, “interesting” to say the least.

        Hmmm whatever happened to their lesbian counterpart weird mc. Sources say back in the day, the trio were really tight as friends.

        If the choice of koredo bello is anything to go buy, it will seem a pattern is emerging of don j’s “type”. Hehehe

    Its the same dark shades ( conveniently worn indoors ofcourse) , the same style, the same mannerisms, everything about him seems stuck at circa 2007 ‘Why Me’ days. True artists constantly evolve to stay relavant : Think Rihanna. If he really wants to win that Grammy then he needs to stop being so invariant. And at 35, time isn’t exactly on his side

    So according to the rumor mill ; Badically everyone in Nigerian entertainment is gay. D’banj, Wizkid, Harrysong allegedly slept witha telecoms executive to get his telecoms deal, same with Kcee. D’prince is also gay and the list is endless. But you know what the truth is? Half of the rumour is true.
    But i will not tell you the once i am sure of.

      Well have also been hearing bout wizkid for a while with bany w…I guess the saying that every straight guy can be gay for a price is true.Tho all the names u mentioned have always had my gaydar ringing and they have all got this power btm/macho mary vibes around them especially madam kcee bleachy bleachy.I remember back in uni one of the accounting dept lecturer was notorious for turning out straight guys and using them how he wants hence they fail most of them will be forming super straighf meanwhile they become little bitches in the man’s office when they are being dicked down.The other notorious one in pub admin dept was later set up in a hotel in abj and the papers carried the news sef that year.It was after then that some of them had the courage to come out and say what actually happened.Meaning every homophobe out there can be gay for something he really wants so this entertainment world guys shouldnt be that difficult to figure out its all about the image,all about the fame and money so what cant they do to maintain it..
