I remember in 2014 when I went back to Nigeria, some young boy who used
to work for me brought an artiste to me and said he wanted me to sign
the artiste. I remember we gave the artiste a Rolex as a signing-on fee.
I signed the artiste and then I got a call later on and they said the
parents of the artiste wanted to meet with me, so I went and they said
‘please I want my boy to go to school’. And to look at today that the
boy I’m talking about is one of the biggest artistes out of this
generation, which is Davido.
Responding to a Twitter user requesting confirmation of D’Banj’s claims, Davido said:
“Yea he actually did give me my first Rolex but I never signed anything! He paved the way for me any day!
