Excuse Me, Mr Banjo

By now, you guys should have heard about D'Banj's name change. If you haven't, you must be living under a rock...or you don't have twitter, which is kinda like the same thing.

I can totally see the thought process. D'Banj is trying to appeal to his "American" fans, so he is changing his name to something they can pronounce. Nothing unprecedented, I mean, Charlie Sheen was born "Carlos Estevez". Or maybe D'Banj wanted to impress this guy,

Let's ignore the fact that no man with braids has been prosperous this year. They're "label" mates, so they're like buddies. Maybe there have been problems pronouncing the name and D'Banj got tired of it all.


What's this?
Over the past few weeks Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’Banj has experienced a series of vicious hacks on several of his social networking sites including his Facebook page and more recently, his Twitter of which his account name was wrongfully changed.

In all of recorded history, hackers have never said any of the following:

  1. "I'm bored, I should hack D'Banj's twitter"
  2. "Oh man, I just learned to hack. I should start from D'Banj's twitter account"
  3. I"'m going to hack the bank account of these "SNLoveHate" kids"
Trust me, I've checked. I've done the research.

Seriously, if you hacked D'Banj's twitter, would you "JUST" change the name. I don't know about you, but I'd do way worse. I'd slander the fuck out of Don Jazzy and I'd have the most condescending "ff bk" rejections, just like those #NigerianTwitter big babes.

"I was hacked" must be 2012's version of "It was the devil". D'Banj and his people must think we're complete imbeciles.


  1. No way!
    D'banj and his shitty PR team can kindly GTFOH. They need more people.

  2. He may not be seen to be doing things the right way but give him the benefit of doubt.
