D'banj Reveals How He Signed Davido With A Rolex Wristwatch (Video)

D’banj, in a new interview with Spindle magazine, has spilled the beans on how he first signed Davido in 2014.

Here’s what he told the magazine:

“I Remember In 2014 When I Went Back To Nigeria. Some Young Guy Who Used To Work For Me Brought An Artist To Me And Said He Wanted Me To Sign Him And I Signed The Artist. I Remember We Gave The Artist A Rolex Watch As A Signing-On Fee. I Signed The Artist And I Got A Call Later On That The Parents Of The Artist Wanted To Meet With Me. So I Went And I Saw The Parents And They Said Please I Want My Boy To Go To School. I Know You Have Signed Him But I Really Want Him To Go To School. So I Said Okay, Let Him Go To School Because That Is What You Want And Then After That, He Can Come Back. The Boy I Am Talking About Is One Of The Biggest Artist Coming In From This New Generation Which Is Davido.”

Point to note: there’s a mix-up in the dates. D’banj actually signed Davido to his unnamed label on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, after a five-man meeting involving D’banj, his manager Abisagboola ‘Bankulli’ Oluseun, Davido, his manager Asa Asika and father Deji Adeleke, thisGistmania confirms.
