So the long-awaited thread is here. Time and time again this arguement has popped up in various thrrads, but I think it's time to settle who's truly the Lord of African music.

Drop your arguements (with solid facts) as to who rules the game.

Psquare are the biggest Nigerian artiste at the moment. Even bigger than 2face, though don't command the respect that 1face commands.

Let's go global, cos thats the in-thing. Dbanj got 4 nominations at WORLD MUSIC AWARD 2012 though it has been postponed. How many has Psquare got at the WORLD MUSIC AWARD, since they have been singing? That question is a pointer as to who is bigger at the moment.
Just compare and contrast the awards collected by the two of them.

PSQUARE GLOBALLY RESPECTED AWARDS

2007 Channel O Music Video Awards - Best Duo or Group
2008 Channel O Music Video Awards
Best Duo or Group
Video of the Year ("Do Me"wink
MTV Africa Music Awards 2008 - Best Group
MTV Africa Music Awards 2009 - Best Group
2010 KORA Awards - Artiste of the Year
2012 Channel O Music Video Awards - Best Duo, Group or Featuring Music Video ("Chop My Money" with Akon and May D)


DBANJ GLOBALLY RECOGNISED AWARDS

Most Promising Male Artist - KORA All African Awards 2005
Best African Act MTV Europe Music Awards 2007
Best Special Effects - 2007 Channel O Music Video Awards(“Why Me”)
Artist of the Year - MTV Africa Music Awards 2008
Best Male MTV Africa Music Awards 2008
Listeners Choice - MTV Africa Music Awards 2008
Artist of the Year - MTV Africa Music Awards 2009
Best International Act - Africa BET Awards 2011
Best African Act – MOBO Awards 2012
Channel O Most Gifted Male Video of the Year Award 2012
Best African Act MTV Europe Music Awards 2012

It will interest you that any category Psquare and Dbanj are nominated, Dbanj always win the category. Take for example at the M.O.B.O awards 2012, Dbanj dusted them to win the BEST AFRICAN ACT. That was not the first time, he did same to them by winning ARTIST OF THE YEAR at MTV Africa Music Awards 2008.

Psquare has never won BET and MOBO awards in their singing carreer.
This is enough for non-sentimental heads to judge. cheers

p-square's awards are limited cos they are a duo, groups aren't nominated in many cats...and even when they are, well...you can tell me how many groups win awards to begin with...

Is that your only arguement? Gimme something else. Shakespeare didn't need awards to be the most recognised writer of all time.

Bring a better defence, dearie. They won as best African artiste of the year 2010 in KORA awards. Not once were they nominated along with Dbanj, and he floored them in BET and MTV awards. Excuse of a bad worksman.

Psquare rocks, and Psquare is by far bigger and most recognized artiste in Africa at this moment.
Dbanj won everything he got under Don Jazzy, his last hit song is oliver twist which is a Don Jazzy product.
Now we have been waiting for the almighty Dbanj to give us hit song since they parted ways but all we got is crap songs like oyato etc.

Meanwhile, so many Africans are learning Igbo language bc of Psquare. I cant count how many peeps from Ghana and Liberia that keeps calling me daily to translate some Psquare songs for them.

1. WEALTH: Psquare wins hands down
2. TALENT: Psquare wins hands down
3. MANNERS: PSquare wins hands down
4. SWAG/GOOD LOOKS: Square wins hands down
5. ALBUM SALES: Psuqre wins hands down
6. GOOD MUSIC: Pquare wins hands down
7. NUMBER OF AWARDS WON: Dbanj has won more
8. REPUTATION: PSquare wins hands down. Dbanj and Jazzy are 419 scammers, they made their money tru equity line of credit scam, every Nigerian in London knows this fact. People respect them bc after they made their 3 million pounds racket they relocated to Nigeria to establish their record label.

All in all, these are Nigerian stars, though they wont share their money with me and you but am happy for them and I pray they go far than this.
Small American rats like Lil Wayne makes over 50 million dollars yearly by singing crap and calling women biitches. I cant wait to see our stars make half of this money per year. So far Psquare seems to be on course. Even Whizkid was said to have made 1 million dollars this year from album sales which is not bad at all.

Re: P-square Vs. D'banj by Abagworo(m): 10:54am On Dec 23, 2012
D'banj only has one album which is "The Entertainer". That "Tongolo" was crap. P-square has only 2 albums "Get Squared" and "Game Over". Tuface has 4 albums "Face2face", "Grass to Grace", "Unstoppable(international)" and "Away and Beyond". The original "Unstoppable" was crap. Anyone can judge.

and what are 'Invasion' and 'Danger'? Singles? By the way, Invasion was one of the fastest-selling albums of the year...I'm not even aware of 2face's albums cos it doesn't have general appeal...never sells out (maybe the first did)

You dont understand. I am not arguing the fact that Psquare is richer. I wanted you to do your calculations well.
If you say Dbanj is worth 30 million dollars that equals to 4.8 BILLION NAIRA and not 480 million Naira as you stated.
If Dbanjs net-worth is 480 million Naira then it should be 3 million Dollars, NOT 30 MILLION DOLLARS.
And if Psquare is worth 700 Million Naira that is 5 million dollars or thereabout.
Do your calculations well. Million and Billion is not the same

Where do you live? Maybe you mean club hits and not classic albums. If you mean club hits then Davido, Inyanya, Wizkid, Terry G and Timaya are the best of 2012. Sales is dependent on commercialization and not quality. If you check the albums I listed, you can play from tracks 1 to the last with only 1 or 2 skips. In recent years Flavour N'abania seems to be doing more classic albums than these artists.

D'banj is currently d biggest artist in Africa. Now remember d'banj doesn't make money from music alone,he's also a businessman,(koko water,foam,garri,db records,tv reality,club e.t.c)anoda dangote in d makin.if there's anyone that is worth as much as d koko master himself,it has to be 2face not psquare.

We're blacks, the whole classic thing doesn't blend with us, people like to dance and forget their sorrows...that being said, P-square's albums aren't exactly filled with club bangers are they? Possibility came out of Danger album, it wasn't a club banger, I love you was from same album, not a club banger...Me and m brother, not club banger, Beautiful Onyinye sounds like a serenade, both are from Invasion, and it doesn't matter when you play those songs, now or in two years, it will still be beautiuful and memorable, so what are you saying bout club bangers? I'm telling you P-square's albums sell out ALWAYS, you're talking 'classic' music, do tell what's classic bout anything LMFAO releases or even Gangnam style that's gone viral.

Abi is it until you do funeral song that your album can be considered worth it's salt?

So you believe PSY is a better artist than Alicia Keys or better rapper than Kendrick Lemar and Meek Mill. Infact Gangnam style is the best song of all time because it has a billion youtube views. I laugh in Korean.

I don't believe he's the best, in fact, I think he's a one-hit wonder...but that doesn't make the song any less of a hit..Alicia Keys and co. Haven't been able to garner a billion hits despite all their class, but some Korean dude comes from nowhere and steals the shine for a song and dance I find quite silly...doesn't that say something?
