The Kokomaster Dbanj has revealed that he once signed Davido in 2014, and that the signing fee was a Rolex.
Dbanj revealed this in an interview with The Fedz, who are also featured on his new album ‘King Don Come’.
According to Dbanj, Davido’s parents pleaded with him that they wanted him to go to school and not pursue a musical career.
Dbanj narrated, “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.”
Dbanj did not confirm if Davido returned the Rolex back then, but the Omo Baba Olowo crooner reportedly has one worth N36 million today.
