D’Banj claims “Daniel Banjo” name change was fault of a hacker…Do you believe him?

Do you remember my post a few days ago about D’Banj changing his name from “Dapo Oyebanjo” to a more western sounding “Daniel Banjo” in an effort to appeal to the US market (Read Here)

Following the backlash on twitter, blogs and facebook, his publicist Vanessa Amadi released a statement this morning saying the “Daniel Banjo” name change was the work of a hacker not the Kokomaster. Erm…really?

Is the hacker also to blame for removing Mo Hits from his twitter bio and changing it to GOOD music and IDJ?

Is D’Banj selling out? Changes name from “Dapo Oyebanjo” to “Daniel Banjo”

We’ve seen D’Banj make a lot of changes in his career in the last few months following his signing to Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D MUSIC. The most shocking was his split with long time friend and business partner Don Jazzy, cutting off all ties with Mo Hits, moving out of the Lekki mansion they shared and now a name change. Last night he changed his name on his twitter bio from Dapo Oyebanjo to Daniel Banjo.

I guess he’s trying to make himself more marketable in the States, Daniel Banjo is a lot easier to pronounce that Dapo Oyebanjo. A writer at 1976AD.com wrote an open letter to D’Banj which pretty much articulates most fans feelings about the name change, read it after the jump


Tanzanian Movie Star Steven Kanumba dead at 28, allegedly killed by girlfriend. Nollywood joins in mourning.

Late last night it was reported that popular Tanzanian actor Steven Kanumba had died, cut off in the prime of his life at 28.

There are conflicting reports about how he died, some say he was in a fatal auto crash on his way back home from a night out while the story generating the most buzz claims he died from a fall, as a result of being pushed girlfriend Elizabeth ‘Lulu’ Michaels. The reports claim Steven and Lulu were fighting over incoming calls on her phone while she was at his home. He demanded to see the calls, but she didn’t show them to him. While taking the phone by force, she pushed him and he fell, hitting his head hard. The fall killed him.

The reports also go on to say Lulu is currently being held in custody.


NBC bans May D’s Soundtrack video…what difference does it make?

NBC have come again!

After banning DBanj’s Oliver Twist, the dinosaurs over at NBC have banned May D‘s video for his first single Soundtrack, from being aired in Nigerian TV. Reason they gave is because of “erotic scenes”

Granted the video is sexy and I understand them not wanting young kids being exposed to such “sinful and abominable acts” but completely banning it is a bit much. Why wasn’t it restricted to being aired at certain hours, say 10pm to 5am, when most kids are asleep.

It’s not like there is anything going on in this video that isn’t taking place in people’s bedrooms across Nigeria. This is a society were politicians are marrying 12 year old girls, teachers are raping students (without consequence), girls are selling their bodies for blackberries, iPads, brazillian hair, and extra marital affairs abound. The society is already rotten banning May D’s video isn’t going to make one bit of a difference.
