Self-proclaimed Banga Lee, Dapo Oyebanjo, is an enviable musician and respected entertainer in Africa, but was recently slammed with debt rumours and court cases.
The Eja-nla crooner who recently dragged Hollywood’s ex-stripper, Amber Rose, to Nigeria for his 10 years anniversary as a music star, has shut down all rumours that he is broke and into a lots of debts.
He went down memory lane in a recent chat to recall his journey to the highly competitive Nigerian music industry.
“My first single came out October 2004 .My first album was released in March 2005 and as at that time I always say I was an entertainer and I hoped and prayed that I will be the biggest to come out of Africa. I will be a businessman, you know you always have different types of dreams.
It’s been a great journey in 10 years and when I count my blessings, I see that God has been so faithful. There are places that I have been to, that I never thought about. Though, I dream big,
“I have been on some stages I never thought I will be on,” he says.
He also named the high point of career, shoving off the reports of being broke.
“The high point of my career will be last year when I gave a speech at the World Bank Tedex .
“That for me was different, because it had nothing to do with music. Being on that platform with those caliber of people, shows that you are not just an artiste, but also representing a generation,” he boasted.
