D’Banj, President of the Newly-Formed Def Jam Africa, Signs Davido
Posted on May 19th, 2012 by Ovie O

Can you believe it?

Yes, D’Banj has signed Davido to his new label, Def Jam Africa. Def Jam Africa is the African arm of Island Def Jam which is under parent company Universal Music Group, home to some of the biggest superstars on the planet.

I’m told from very reliable sources that the deal was initialized about 2 weeks ago in Atlanta, US (both acts are pictured partying it up at a club in Downtown ATL). But it was only finalised this past wednesday, the 16th of May. Details of the deal remain sketchy. But one thing’s certain… This Is Massive!

The Rise and Rise of Davido continues. Are you watching?

I can't stand his music but he is head of an important label, good avenue for African musicians to gain recognition (until local labels grow) like Def Jam Island has done for Caribbean artists :D
