Is It Time For D’banj To Hang It Up? by dridowu: 3:09pm On Aug 28, 2015
Following the release of his latest single titled Confidential which also features Driis (Idris Elba) and Shadow Boxer, Aribaba of Jaguda.com reviews the song and asks a very important question.

D’banj will forever be a great. A living legend and one of those that paved the way for most of the new artists out here today, but there comes a time when everyone has to bow out. Over the past year, D’banj has released 5+ singles, and with the exception of Feeling The N**** ft. Akon, you can argue that none of them have really hit the mark.

After listening to his new/re-released single, Confidential, I’ve been convinced that it might be time for D’banj to hang it up musically… or at least take a step back, reflect, and possibly make a real comeback. When you’re having to put out songs where the chorus says “I take you to the right spot, dancing on your center of gravity“, or you have lines like “if you’re sitting down, you’re sitting on a long ting, but the only long ting, must be a strong ting, you’re with the kokomaster it’s a fun ting“, it’s really time to hang it up.

Great artists reinvent themselves and adapt with the times. Maybe this could fly in 2008, but in 2015 it’s not working. The beat is decent, but the lyrics killed any kind of goodwill the beat and production might have brought. The other verses by Idris Elba (Driis) and Shadow Boxer are not bad, but nothing wowing!

Like I said earlier, D’banj is one of the greats, and nothing will make me happier than seeing him really mount an epic comeback, but if he continues to release stuff like this, I’m afraid it might be time to hang it up, and go upper management.

I feel that's what he's trying to do with the 'king is here' competition that he's organising. I think he wants to invest on younger talents now.

I rather think D'banj should rebrand himself(not as Banga Lee!!utter rubbish!!!) ,get a good PR Expert

And make a comeback in the music industry

OR

he should go back and team up with Don Jazzy(their collaboration was the bomb!!. They kept dropping hits after hits,after all they were called MOHITS!!)

OR(This is the best option)
Start a record label(if he doesn't have one), get a young chap to mentor and sell him/her to the public through his music!!.

The youngsters are in charge now and this is the trend now!!!

Demuren/banky w- Wizkid(apologies to OJB!!!)
Kcee-Skiibii
Don Jazzy-Reekado and Korede Bello
Olamide-lil kesh
IllBliss-Stormrex(she is old and has been there though!!,Phyno)
2face-Dammy krane
Seun-Airforce1,Bosun e.t.c.

Ecclesiastes chapter 3 verse 1 to 8. D'banj's time is past. Let him just focus on managing his business and stop ridiculing himself and all he has achieved by releasing songs that leaves much to be desired. Knowing when to bow out gracefully defines a real man

dancing on your center of gravity“, or you have lines
like “if you’re sitting down, you’re sitting on a long

you’re with the kokomaster it’s a fun ting“, it’s really
time to hang it up.

But I think "Feeling the Nikka" was cool...

But if I may ask, what is wrong with having people write songs for him?

Is Dbanj better than Ron Isley wey R Kelly dey write songs for and even follow am take the chorus?

All d'banj needs is a good beat with another catchy lyrics like Oliver twist, and he will be back on top,



After all the hit songs playing on our radios today are nothing to write home about lyrics wise, It's all about the beat
