BIOGRAPHY / BIRTHDAY: Today June 9, 2016 is Singer, D’banj’s 36th Birthday.

Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo popularly known as D’banj was born 9 June 1980 in Zaria Kaduna State. His father was a military officer and his mother, a church dignitary. He is a Nigerian singer-songwriter,
harmonica player, and entrepreneur. He adopted the stage name D'banj, a combination of his first name, Dapo, and his surname, Oyebanjo. D'banj is currently best known internationally for his 2012 summer hit "Oliver Twist", as of 2016, D'banj is ranked to be the richest solo musician in Nigeria according to T.I.N Magazine.
Due to his father's profession he moved several times within Nigeria and later moved to England. D'banj was expected to follow his father's military career and was enrolled to the Nigerian Military School at age eleven. However, D'banj resisted the system and disenrolled from the school after three years. He studied Mechanical Engineering from the University of Lagos.
D'banj's debut album, No Long Thing, was released in 2005, with Tongolo as the lead single. D'banj's debut success led to collaborations with other artists, including Dare Art Alade and Ikechukwu. D'Banj's single koko was used by the PDP (ruling political party in Nigeria) as its campaign theme for the 2007 general elections.
D’banj was an artist of Mo’Hits. In June 2011, D'banj was signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D Music record label as an artiste. After several months of speculation and wild rumours, ace producer, Don Jazzy confirmed via his Twitter account the break-up of Mo'Hits.

@kinghsley: hahahahahaha. you asked a very good question. I think Wikipedia don't recognise her as a musician rather an actress. all those stuffs she was doing was just public stunt and "over excitement". @becky: e concern you. don't you like the"KOKO"? D'banj got it. i guess you love it. ‪#‎justkiddingaround‬
