Reasons Dbanj's Concert Was A Success by fastigiater: 10:30pm On Dec 29, 2012
Contrary to what is being said in some threads, I believe the positives of the concert outweigh the negatives.

1) I was at this show and I must say the turnout was overwhelming to say the least. The crowd was huge and only D'banj in the industry today could have pulled the crowd. Even notable artists agreed the crowd could only be found at the holy ghost congress. The show was in no way a flop whatsoever.

2) Gone are the days of corporate event sponsorship: When was the last time an international act came to Nigeria without corporate backing? D'banj himself managed to convince international acts to come to Nigeria and bankrolled the concert. This was all down to his smooth talking and influence on the international stage. Where else would you find a gathering of such A-listers? The fact international acts are willing to come to Nigeria based on personal affiliation and relationship with artists can only be good for the industry, meaning acts will come not because of the money but talent and personality in the industry

3) These guys definitely had fun as the pictures suggest

4) For the first time as far as I can remember, a major entertainment event was streamed online. This is a plus in itself and I believe it has given other artists a platform to build on. Only downside is it has given people not even present at the concert an avenue to post erroneous statements based on the online feed and output from laptops. This concert has created a platform for many artists and the industry as a whole to build on and I can only hope we take advantage of it and not let any preference for D'banj or Don Jazzy cloud our judgement.

I know this will eventually turn into a D'banj vs Don Jazzy thread (lets make it a discussion for another day as I believe they are both losing and someone needs to talk some sense into both of them), I believe we should be clamouring for the unity of the two legends, rather than people thoughtlessly taking sides. I understand the venue was below par, but with the time of event and turn out, who would have handled this better? Only thing I would suggest is to recruit an industry recognised event handler next time as D'banj played his part but the logistics team let him down. Shikena

Honestly don't know why ppl are having -ve remarks instead of +ve although the organisers fell short of logistics & fans had to trek long distance beside that the concert is commendable & the turn out is massive, never know Dbanj can pull such crowd.

@Iamswizz pls tell me you were at the show? All I'm saying is there are positives for the industry in all of this and gives a blueprint for other artists to follow.
