According to D’banj, professional record labels in Nigeria died after his former group, Mo-hits was disbanded a few years ago.
In February, it was gathered that the Kokomaster got the production for his hit single – Emergency – from an emerging producer who he had never met. In line with this and the success of Emergency, D’banj said he’s working on a new partnership – a project that will create a platform where upcoming artistes or producers can easily connect with A-List acts.“There is no need in deceiving ourselves. Record labels in Nigeria died after Mo’hits and that’s the truth. There are no record labels anymore.”“Any artiste that can buy a laptop, produce a song with it, get his uncle to pay for video would say he has a record label. That is not a record label.”
