Renowned Nigerian musician Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, also known as D’banj, has described himself as a “new cat” in the music industry, despite his 20-year career.

He feels like he is starting from scratch again as he recognizes how much the industry has changed over the years.

In a recent interview with Hip TV, the 43-year-old singer announced that his upcoming album, ‘Entertainer’, will feature collaborations with emerging artists. This album is a follow-up to his successful 2008 release, ‘The Entertainer’.

D’banj also discussed his contributions to the global recognition of Nigerian music during the interview.

D’banj said, “I am not the first [Nigerian artist] to have done an international collaboration. We were just the first to have done it the way we did it. Usually, when you want to do a collaboration with an international artist, it seemed before ours, like they were doing you a favour. But with the kind of grace that God gave us and the kind of team that we had, we were able to deliver one of the biggest [‘Mr Endowed’].

“I think that actually gave hope and visibility to the kids [new artists] to know that they can do it. So, I feel like a very proud father if I may say. That’s why I am a cat again [up-and-coming artist]. Now, I want to feature not even international artists but local artists. I want to feature Ayra Starr, Rema, Ruger and Don Jazzy. Collaboration is the new competition.”
