D'banj gets mentioned on daytime TV in the US

D'banj was mentioned on Live with Kelly and Michael, a top syndicated morning talk show, hosted by Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan. The male host, Michael, read out the top five songs for working out at the gym and D'banj's Oliver Twist was mentioned at number 3 after Psy's Gangnam Style (5) and Keisha's Die Young (4). Michael then said he's never heard of D'banj. Watch the video HERE or after the cut...(Oh, and Vanessa Amadi is D'banj's publicist, pictured with him on the left)



Starts from the 6.00 mark

That's Vanessa Amadi the PR person who pushed D'banjs success in the UK. So I guess they are going to do the same in the US. Good!

Oliver Twist is the only Classic dbanj will ever have courtesy Donbaba J,he should njoy the moments.
But a classic can expire too from overuse' and the lack of maintainance'.
So we are watching and waiting Dbanj!

Boss said...

I would really like to see Dbanj churn out new hits instead living forever off Oliver Twist which is now stale. Perhaps he can't make no more hit tracks. Perhaps he's doomed without his former partner and producer. I'm seeing the handwriting on the wall so keep licking off a Don jazzy track while you can cos without IDJA you are finished

Nigerians LIVE out their American fantasies everyday in films, music videos, mode of dressing, in conversations etc and Americans aren’t proclaiming it the greatest things since cellular phones BUT check out Nigerians having heart palpitations because D’banj was mentioned on a morning show in New York. We are still looking for a nod of approval from outside of ourselves. The mention should just be a given because he is a star in his own right, it should just be a given just like Nigerians talk about Jigga, Kanye without it being a big deal because it is just a given that they are stars. No need for the bold headlines and grand announcement. YOU GO D’BANJ!

Mama said...

so dbanj gets a mention and that translates to success? how now? nigerians will always chase after name dropping, thats why we never get the substance right....real talent, tight lyrics will take you to the top regardless....its the number of awards, airplay and how your songs inspire people that matters not cos u were mentioned and the presenter says he never heard of him sef.....pls linda its high time you bloggers and journalist start talking about real things that have substance....

Anonymous said...

*cough cough* Song produced by non other than Don Jazzy!!!!!!

What recent songs of dbanj is memorable??? I am waiting....

What is the hype? This Vanessa girl looks good but low brain because since last year D'banj has been mentioned on BET TV. No big thing now.

D'banj has had some songs after Don Jazzy's Oliver Twist. They've all been rubbish. This guy has aready lost his position in Naija music. Being known in US does not mean jack these days. Just ask P Square, Tu face, MI. These guys are cleaning up in Africa. Why do you think all these US peeps are here like every other week.
And didn't this Vanessa girl just get engaged? She's cute though but if her a guy is a Naija man then she will have to do something about this her publicity career. Our men want their women around. Just sayin'.

I live in the US, and Kelly Ripa's morning show is HUGE. It is as big as Oprah having a morning show. For "Oliver Twist" to be in the top three workout songs here is the shizzle. And Michael Strahan is a top American footballer, though retired. That show's endorsement goes a long way. And for the ignoramuses, nobody in mainstream America cares about a local squabble between D'banj and Don Jazzy. It has no relevance to the guys or ladies working out at the neighborhood gym here.
