KokoMaster D’banj Signs Davido to His New record Label

Posted by Tyler on May 19, 2012 in AUDIO · 58 Comments


Dapo ‘D’banj‘ Oyebanjo has signed to his new (yet unnamed) record label the fast rising pop star David ‘Davido‘ Adeleke

NET investigations confirmed the signing took place on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at the 19-year-old’s house in Lekki after a five-man meeting involving D’banj, his manager Abisagboola ‘Bankulli’ Oluseun, Davido, his manager Asa Asika and father Deji Adeleke.

After the signing, both acts and their crew members then headed out to the weekly Industry Nite at the Oriental Hotels to celebrate. NET had earlier reported D’banj making his first ever post-Mo’Hits public appearance at the weekly gig where he gave a surprise performance with artiste of the night Ikechukwu.

We’re still working to get details of the deal particulars, but sources say talks started weeks before  both acts met in the US. D’banj and Davido were both spotted at the famous strippers joint – Diamonds Of Atlanta Gentlemans Club in Atlanta.

Davido’s manager when contacted however played down the news of the signing insisting that both parties are still in talks. ‘We are still in talks, that’s all I have to say for now, it could take a day or a year‘, Asa Asika told NET in a phone conversation.D’banj’s camp was yet to respond to our E-mails as at the time of filing in this report.

D’banj recently signed to Mercury Records UK through the G.O.O.D Music label imprint.Davido had until now remained an unsigned act but has in the past year risen to A-list status with just three singles out.He now joins D’banj’s younger brother KSwitch on the label which, according to insiders, will be affiliated to Island Def Jam Africa.

  17. All this that is happing between the new MAVIN records and the G.O.O.D music records i just to make the Entertainment industry more intresting. Bt i think Don jazzy is not to sharp to sign Davido. So the game is first come first served.

  18. Well, there is still more to life. So lets just watch how all this drama will end. For i know there is a end for it. May God help them.

  19. we need to add senses to dis issues! U????? don’t need to judge anyone of them. We don’t knw wat happen btw 2 of them I mean d banj and don jazzy . instead of U????? guyz to settle d matter U?????’re adding to it. We know ow they started.

  24. Hahahah dbanj ??? too much Fø????? M????????? liking may God bless ??? abundantly………

  25. I expected d’banj 2 sign an artiste wu is more matured in d music game dan davido. But he made his choice.
    But I don’t belive kanye was in d studio 2 acceptin d rubbish d’banj did on Go Down cuz Kanye west isn’t so dull 2 dat extent.. More greese 2 d’banj. Wishin him d best or maybe he is d next blood sacrifice 4 kanye west…

  26. Y’all should stop sayin rubbish bout d’banj nd Davido ; d’banj is an entertainer so no matter wat he does he gets paid so u peepz shud stop hatin

  27. Waitin on wat comes out dis signin…so dat i can hit my audiences wit good music…lets support dis peeps no matter wat…i luv dbanj and Don jazzy…long live nigeria and her great entertainers..

  28. Sum1 said don baba J is slackin jus bcos dbanj is now being rumoured 2 hav signed davido 2 his ghost record label, why should sum1 say such a thing? Wen d don has in his side the luvly nd wonderfilled tiwa savage who has writen songs that ar once nominated 4 grammy compared 2 a davido who just started. 2 stand d text of time no be garri o. Fingers crossed nd time wil tell. Hope dbanj wont expect davido 2 com nd be his new producer sha. Just imagining (on d beat is davido, oshe…… ILMFA

  31. D?????’banj, well i D?????n’t wanna judge buh ur new single go down was jst flop man, n U?????
    signing a song writer is jst 2 shw dat ur neva gud, D?????’banj is wack. Gerrout.

  32. I really tink dis collabo is wack let’s see if it will sTand d test of tym coz I tink Davido lacks talent

  33. Watch out
    maybe at d start of d’banj next song u wil hear sumtin like
    davido sayin; on d beat is davido
    d’banj follows by sayin; oshe….
    then u start hearing noice nd repeatations of words and sentences plus back up by k-switch which wil make up a total bulshit, by den u al wil realize wot don jazzy realy ment 2 him.
    I even heard don jazzy said he’s going 2 flood d industry/market with lots of songs wil u sure make lots of people run in2 hidding

  34. Watch out
    maybe at d start of d’banj next song u wil hear sumtin like

  36. Mehn!! tSi I dy feel ur comment.. U mk sense.. Its davido again…LMFAO!!

  37. choi..dbanj is so scared he can’t make it on his own and he was smart enough to have rushed to davidos house to beg too sign him.. dat shows desperation..just imagine kanye comin to dbanjs house to sign him and dbanjs manager says d deal aint sealed @ d end of d day.. complete humiliation.. I’m beginin to see how inadequate dbanj finks he his…I’m sure Wizkid is laffin singin childs play………he hasn’t even thot of a good name 4 his label…. I suggest ”B.A.D music”.. cos he’s wacked

  38. I’ve never heard of any organization/institution(includin dat of d deaf, dumb, blind & imbesile) that coms down 2 ur house with contract papper nd ask u 2 sign a deal(wen its not a micheal jackson dat just rose 4rm the dead ‘extra-ordinary superstar’), dat shows lack of administration/vission/mission, imagine a situation whereby manchester city wil hav 2 com 2 a player in nigeria named akpos that play 4 net bombers fc(an unknown club) 2 offer him a deal(maybe they think he wil b greater than messi, ronaldo & van persie combined 2gether.
    Back 2 dose that says don jazzy is slackin bcos d’banj signed davido whom only knows how 2 repeat wordz nd sentences, sum1 whom its hard 4 u 2 differenciate his chorus 4m his hook or verse most times, dont 4get don jazzy already hav tiwa savage ‘Mavin firstlady’ who is nigeria’s greatest female song writter of our generation, a lady who write songs 4 american artistes, not just songs but songs that ar grammy nominated. Its like real madrid signing ronaldo nd manchester utd signing pogba, just like 7up said, d difference is clear cos if no be panadol, e no fit b panadol
    truth be said, d’banj needs 2 d better if he ever thinks of catching don jazzy’s shadow
    on d beat is davido, oshe……
    Stil LMFAO

  39. U guys are jst being childish about this issue, when D’banj & Don Jazzy started u were not der. Now they’ve ended its not ur place 2 say anything. Ur job is to listen 2 their output, if u like it u enjoy it if u don’t den discard it. Wots all this hating 4? U don’t even kno wots happening under every gist, so shut up & wait 4 output.

  40. For those of y'all thats been dissing the Kokomaster…what has Don Jazzy made out of Dr Sid, D Prince and K Swith ? Thats to show you how G.O.O.D DBanj is . Not questioning the efficiency of IDJA but D Banj has blessed all those beats with good delivery. If Tiwa Savage has been so important to the HollyWood then she would have been signed on Dirty Money or YMcmb by now ! This guys fought hard to get to where they are …they will always be great together or not together….so BIG UPS TO IDJA AND BIG UPS TO KOKOMASTER

  41. Na so oooo

  42. Well, is a gud tin 4 davido 2 sign under d recording lebel of one of d talented nd popular hip hop star popularly knw as D’banj aka kokomaster

  43. Dbaaaaaaaaaanj!!!! U????? re †?? best in †?? industry. Would love 2 be a part of your new record label!

  44. Talkin 4rm an organization/management point of view, d’banj made a mistake by going 2 davido’s house 2 sign(he’s not a 5star artiste 4 God sake), my question is if u can go 2 davido’s house 2 sign him, where wil u go 2 if u want 2 sign 2face, 9ice or M.I(nigerian superstars not talkin of the american)? ‘Heaven’ i guess……
    Should i just say he went 2 his house 2 sign him due 2 being afraid that don jazzy might sign him up tru d right steps… Am just guessing though.
    An autocrat leader nd d son of a millionaire as d follower, how long wil d marrage last?
    Fingers crossed nd time shal tell

  45. u wer nt der wn dy statd nd u dnt knw wt hpnd y dy seperatd….so jst lv dm 2 du dir tin…morova bot rcodz i bliv r gona mk a gr8 name in d industry….DY KNW BEST

  46. D’bang should have be an igbo man…. G??????????.??????D???? business man. He came smell G??????????.??????D???? money coming from Davido

  47. i can still c both parties has a bright future. just imagine dis on d’banj album (on d beat is davido, oshey!) and on don jazzy(tiwa sarrvage,don baba j..)

  48. I gat a single……look for manager…daz no sponse to promote it……plz i need ur help…i promise i will never let u down to the end of my life…..i swear

  49. I gat a single……look for manager…daz no sponse to promote it……plz i need ur help…i promise i will never let u down to the end of my life…..i swear

  50. I gat a single looking for manager….daz no help to promote it….i promise i will never let u down to the end of my life…..i swear……plz i need ur help…..am beging u in the name God
