“I am so humbled! A dream that started on paper has finally come to fruition. Africa is the future of the world,” said D’Banj. “A year ago, I launched a platform to help creative talents find their dreams across Nigeria. The platform was developed by Africans, for Africa, to showcase artists across the world. It is testament to what I always say that, content is the New Crude Oil”, he added.
