Actress Funke Akindele has narrated how Singer D'banj Encouraged her to continue with the 'jenifa' brand.

During the singer's celebration of his 20th year anniversary in the music industry, she revealed that the singer urged her to keep the jenifa brand alive.
In her words:

"After the big break with 'Jenifa', everybody loved Jenifa so much
I was out there, there was celebration everywhere
Then Mr.Coker invited me to his club then,he said; 'i want to host you, you are very hardworking, I love jenifa'
So with the cast and crew members, we went and I saw D'banj for the first time, the Dbanj that we always saw on tv
He said;'Am here to serenade you'.
We danced and all that so he gave me his number and sat me down and took me to a private corner and said:'Why did you let jenifa go like that'
I said jenifa is over, he said why would jenifa go like that, that's a brand you can feed on for the rest of your life, he said no, jenifa has to come back, nothing bad happened to jenifa,so he said any support I need, he will give me
So I reached out to him, he said when you have a brand,you feed on the brand, you milk the brand very well,make money out of it, and out of his pocket, he have me some money and said, 'go and write another jenifa, I support you'
I was like really?, with no strings attached, he said go, and I wrote the return of jenifa and till date, the brand is still relevant
God used him to speak to me
Dbanj you're more than just a musician, you are a movement, your music has brought joy to our hearts, and your legacy will live on forever".


  1. D'banj has money to support almighty Funke. I even thought he was gradually getting broke since the downfall of his music career. Or is it the n.power money we heared about?

    1. Do you think Tuface is broke? Have you not heard of investments?

    2. Almighty, indeed she is but remember she wasn’t where she is now, at the time. Her point is that she’s grateful for his support, if not who knows what other things she might have done

    3. This is not recent nau, return of Jennifer is a couple years old.
      Una funny oh. How can he be broke when he still has royalties coming in? He might not be rich rich, but he's not broke please.
      Weldone D'banj.

    4. He still sings with a band at private parties of rich people.

  2. That’s so Sweet of Dbang

    I took Note of his Candor as a Judge during Nigeria Idol.

    He has Steeze, Sweet Personality and I love his Catchphrase “Your Shor show, your Face Shine”.

    Dbang, The world needs more of you.

    You have a Beautiful Soul, maybe that’s why you look younger than your Chronological age

  3. He has other businesses. His family isn't small fry as well.
