He was one of the people that set the ball rolling for the massive global recognition the Nigerian, and indeed African, music is currently enjoying and D’banj doesn’t want you to forget that in a hurry.
The entertainer who got signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music records some years back took to his Instagram to wish Kanye a happy birthday, thanking him for being the first to spot and support African talents, while making a subtle reference to Wizkid’s Collaboration with Drake.
He wrote: “Happy birthday bro, Gemini brother. Thanks for being the first to spot and support african talents. Now the world has seen us and my people have visible hope to follow and we have reason to all have #oneDance”.
He then went on to share clips from his Oliver Twist video which featured a cameo by Kanye and another one of Kanye supporting him on stage at his Koko Concert in London a few years back.
