The members of the G.O.O.D. Music Record label recently covered Complex magazine. Unfortunately, Nigeria’s own D’Banj was not included on that cover.
EverywhereNigeria had the following to say about this act done to our very own celeb:
‘Many may use this as an opportunity to laugh at D’Banj, but I think that we should all take this as a lesson. With the way that D’Banj is being treated as second rate in America, one must really ask, was it all worth it? He was a respected king in Nigeria. He had a beautiful family with Mo’Hits, why did he throw it all away? All in the name of Americanizing. Nigerians, be proud of who you are, be proud of where you come from, and remember to never hold anyone above you. Americanizing yourself does not necessarily mean that you are BETTERING yourself. Instead you are only making alterations. Alterations that you find out are not needed. Hopefully many of us can learn from D’Banj instead of learning the hard way. Be a king in your own jungle’.
But looking at this case critically, informationnigeria gathered that the Koko master was not left out in the inside cover, and this is one area where one gets very logical about how Nigerians tend to take half information and neglect the other part. Even though our own celeb didn’t make the cover, as not everyone would have been able to make it, he was not left out in the list of those that made the inside cover, stamping his membership in the house of GOOD MUSIC. The Koko master is at the left bottom.
