D'banj Disgraces Himself At Zimbabwe As Ugandan Rival Outshines Him Badly

NIGERIAN musician D’Banj born, Dapo Daniel
Oyebanjo, proved more of a studio than stage
musician as he failed to perform to expectations
for hundreds of Zimbabweans who thronged the
Glamis Arena for the Lion Lager Summer Beer
Festival on Saturday night.
The Fall in Love hitmaker’s performance
approximated local dancer Beverly Sibanda’s style
as he spent much of his time speaking about how
Zimbabwean ladies were good at waist-twisting.
D’Banj went on to invite 10 ladies, one at a time,
including Amara Brown to join him on stage.
Regardless of some of his tracks such as Fall in
love, Pop Something, Why Me, Mr Endowed, and
Oliver Twist being popular in the country as they
received massive airplay on local radio stations
and rocked night clubs, the night belonged to his
visiting counterpart, Ugandan ragga musician
Bebe Cool, real name Moses Ssali . Bebe Cool put
up a sterling performance that sent fans into
frenzy matching local artistes who included King
Shady, Guspy Warrior and Winky D, who also
proved were serious contenders in the genre.
Dancehall star King Shaddy put up a scintillating
performance as an opening act, showing energy as
he belted some of his hits. With the top-notch
opening performance by King Shaddy, man-of-
the-moment Guspy Warrior was next to take to
the stage. The Seunononga hit-maker did not
disappoint as he belted out sing-along-hits like
Seunononga, 31 October, among
others. After Guspy Warrior, it was Bebe Cool who
took to the stage full of energy, he managed to
keep the fans on their feet with
a top drawer performance. His well-choreographed
act was well received by fans. He sang some of
his songs that included Coccidiosis, Fitina and
Mambo Mingi among others. Bebe Cool went on to
salute Winky D, describing him as a talented
dancehall chanter.
Winky D was next, determined to prove his
credentials as the self-styled dancehall king.
As usual, the Mafirakureva hitmaker left fans
begging for more. The atmosphere became even
electric when Winky D introduced the popular
Tendazvaitwa “Lipsy” Chitimbe on stage.
As a closing act, D’Banj found it difficult to
match the previous performers who had set great
standards . Popularly known as The Kokomaster,
D’Banj failed to match what his countryman P
Square, did last year at the same event.
