The song and video ‘Endowed’ by Nigerian music star D’Banj is definitely not his best. Both the lyrics and video failed to show much creativity from the music superstar; and I for one was quite vocal in my criticism about it here. So, I was very happy to hear the recent news that he just completed a remix and music video (MV) shoot with America’s rapper Snoop Dogg. D’Banj’s camp recently announced the news to the public on twitter. D’Banj is the only musician out of Nigeria and Africa with a personal brand that is on par with Western celebrities. Under his brand “Koko” his subsidiaries include: Koko Water, Koko Mobile, Koko Reality TV Show, Koko Garri and Koko Wear to name a few. Ladybrille conducted an exclusive with the superstar in July 2007 when D’Banj first visited the USA.
I am looking forward to the MV release and will keep you updated. Stay tuned.
