D’banj, Nigerian singer, says he is building what he termed “an entertainment village” in Abuja.
The 41-year-old musician and entrepreneur spoke about his plans to nurture new artistes under his brand during a chat with GoldmyneTV.
TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how D’banj signed Feza Kessy, a fast-rising Tanzanian artiste, into DB Records, his music label.
“I’ve always been that source of hope. For me, everything happens in the right course in terms of whether it’s reality shows, movies, music. As long as you’re striving; being that visible hope, that’s the important thing,” he said.
When quizzed about his projects, the R&B star added: “Also, I’m into real estate in Abuja. I’m building one or two things you might have heard or seen. It’s like we’re building an entertainment village in a hundred hectares.”
The singer, who recently released ‘Banga’, his much-awaited single, also disclosed that ‘Stress Free’, his new album, will be out on July 2.
D’banj has won several awards including the ‘Best African Act’ at the MTV Europe Music Awards (2007), ‘Artist of the Year’ at the MTV Africa Music Awards (2009), and ‘Best International Act: Africa’ at the 2011 BET Awards.
Others are the ‘Best-selling African Artist’ at the 2014 World Music Awards and the Evolution Award at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards. The singer is best known internationally for his 2012 summer hit song ‘Oliver Twist’.
