For those who may not know, D’banj has still got the Koko (whatever that is). He was at the Eko Hotel venue of Fortified; tribute concert in honour of 2face at 40 on Sunday, September 20, when an interesting incident happen.
As it’s common at all events, immediately the star was sighted, many of the people around rushed towards him to take pictures. What however got people’s attention was the presence of two Asians amongst the people struggling for selfies with D’banj. The Asians acted like their lives depended on taking that picture.
When one of D’banj’s aides tried to lead the ‘Suddenly’ singer into a waiting elevator, the Asian guys begged to take just a shot, even if they’re the only ones allowed.
‘D’banj, please take picture with us,’ they kept repeating even as they pushed their way closer to his side and held their mobile phones in the air, ready for the ultimate selfie, which they would undoubtedly cherish and show to their grand-children.
This incident is a far-cry from the days when Nigerian artistes practically used to beg for attention from fellow Nigerians, not to talk of foreigners. Now, they’re the toast of all and sundry wherever they go….
