Popular Nigerian singer D’banj, born Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, has revealed why he has remained unmarried and without a child at the age of 35.
The energetic singer disclosed that his career as a musician and his brand as an entertainer have been responsible for his single status.
Speaking to Nigeria’s newspaper, The Punch, he said: “I had always thought I would have a child before the age of 30. That fantasy did not become a reality because I wanted to strengthen my brand.”
Accepting his status, D’Banj further said: ‘While growing up, there were some goals I set for myself and at 35; I have accomplished most of them. Sadly, I have not accomplished the primary goals.”
“The main one is marriage. By now, I thought I would have been married,” he regretted.
The Kokomaster was, however, quick to reel out the laudable achievements which have made it impossible for him to tie the knot and have children:
“I didn’t know I would meet Kanye West while I was dreaming big as a child. But I dreamt that I would go places and people would hear my songs all over the world. I also dreamt that Caucasians would dance to my music.”
He added: “I dreamt I would top music charts across the world and all that has happened. I have dreamt of performing in front of thousands of people on a global stage and I have achieved that. For all these I am grateful to God.”
D’Banj had been romantically linked with top rated single women that include movie star, Geneveive Nnaji, Jennifer Obayuwana of Polo, billonaire’s daughter, Adama Ndimi, and South African diva, Bonang Matheba.
