D’banj made this confession few days ago, while speaking on the Black Entertainment Television (B.E.T.) network in an interview session with Dolapo Oni.
“I have played with a lot of international and local musicians. The only musician I didn’t have the privilege to play with while he lived was Michael Jackson. The next level for me is to go global.”D’banj said.
He also commented on why he’s still single, saying “it is because ‘I’m so committed to my work. Right now I have no partner. I am still searching for a life partner”.
On his forthcoming album,”Entertainer”, D’banj said the video has cameo appearances from big names like Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and Tim Westwood. He is in the United States for his upcoming New York concert.
According to reports, the “Oliver” video which will be shot while he is there will feature an array of international music superstars.
