D'banj "Fried" on Interview!

Written By NollywoodRave on Thursday, February 16, 2012 | 8:20 PM


If you know me, then you should know that i have a lot of love for D'banj. On my to do list is "Marry D'Banj," but after this interview, i might as well just stick to my original Igbo BoBos, Peter and Paul Okoye (P'Square.)
So, as usual i was on twitter when someone started tweeting and bashing D'banj, and knowing me and my curiousity, i decided to investigate. He sent me to Bella Naija and on Bella Naija, there was an interview of D'banj, done by the Sahara Reporters. If you do not know who they are, they are one of the realest interviewers who leave no stones unturned.

I felt like when D'Banj came to the interview, he took it as a joke. He thought it was going to be one of the praising session, with people falling all over his feet. Even at one point he says "Chic don't dull youself, you are dulling." He was not prepared and he came off as confused and illiterate. I did not like it one bit and i found myself shaking my head after every minute. He did not carry himself very well and came off as unserious. I felt bad for him because he really got grilled, but he could have done it much more better.


The grilling was a lot but his greatest downfall was on the subsidy issue. For him to claim that he was not in Nigeria at the moment and therefore he could not talk or approach the subject, is unacceptable. I mean i was abroad but i kept in touch with every single detail of the protest. Even if he was so busy and could not attend any of the Occupy Nigeria, he should at least know some details about it.

Another one is when she asks about his thoughts of the percentage increase of the poor in Nigeria, D'banj talks about how the increase in his field of entertainment will help fix the situation in our country. Because his field [as entertainer ] does not require a degree. *Pause* What? We do not need children aspiring to become musicians or actors. We need them exploring the field of medicine, technology, engineering, law, political science. That is the only way to boost up our economy and educate this coming up generations so that they can make a better country out of Nigeria. This one killed it for me. No matter how unprepared you are, as a UN peace ambassador, he should have been able to do much more better than this. I must say i was very disappointed.

He later goes on to say that he is not a politician so this questions are not really suitable for him. Despite the fact, entertainer or not, he should be able to address the serious issues going on in the world. He should be able to give his thoughts, advice, and much more. This is a guy a lot of children look up to, and as a role model, you need to have a serious vibe to you. You need to know how to address issues whether they concern you or not.

I bet after this interview, he was sweating like a real scapegoat.
The interview is below:

  1. I think the questions were in order and sadly D'Banj exposed his ignorance or should I say apathy towards issues that are affecting the people he claims to represent.

    You cannot become a celeb and public figure and yet at the same time you want to remain indifferent to the social and moral responsibilities that come with it. He really needs some PR lessons I think.
