Dapo Oyebanjo, our very own D’Banj, is moving up at an alarming rate and with this speed, he looks set for the sky.

‘Bangalee’ has just got himself signed on to one of the world’s top record labels, Sony Music Entertainment, and the deal is said to be worth millions of dollars.

Being the sharp business man that he is, the ‘Koko Master’ made sure his kid brother, Kayswitch, and other upcoming acts on his personal record label, are somehow included in the deal.

The company, in a release, acknowledges the fact that ‘Oliver Twist’ has actually been signed on by them.

“Global recording company Sony Music Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of Nigerian megastar, D’Banj, to its RCA Africa label.

“The breakthrough deal also includes a multi-album, worldwide exclusive contract with emerging Nigerian singer-songwriter, Kayswitch and a strategic partnership with D’Banj’s Nigerian record label, DB Records, whose catalog includes artists and producers such as J.Sol, Jay Sleek and DeeVee.

“Sony Music’s RCA Records label hosts a family of global superstar artists and a catalog of music, which includes some of the most important recordings in history. The signing landmarks a historic moment, which sees Africa’s number one superstar artist, D’Banj, join Africa’s number one music and entertainment company Sony Music.

“Partnering with D’Banj is a seminal event for us at Sony Music Entertainment Africa. We’ve always admired his talent and to be able to assist with bringing D’Banj’s music to millions of fans, established and new, across the continent is an honour for us.”
