‘Dbanj used to give me N50,000 per N1m show’ – Rapper Ikechukwu

Veteran Nigerian rapper Ikechukwu Onunaku, popularly known as Ikechukwu, has revealed that D’banj, the co-founder of the now-defunct Mohits Records, used to give him N50,000 from shows he got booked for N1 million while he was at the label.

He said he later increased it to N150,000 after he confronted him.

Ikechukwu said D’banj had to consult his mother before increasing it, stressing that the co-founder’s mother influenced decisions at the record label for a long time.

Speaking in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, the rapper said: “Banga [D’banj] is going to hate this when I say this. But the truth is the truth. When we used to go for shows, they [promoters] go pay Banga money, Banga go do like say he dey do me a favor. He would give me N50,000 from shows I got booked for N1 million and above.

“He eventually increased it after we fought. He said he spoke with his mum and they increased it to N150,000. His mum was part of the record label spiritually. You can ask Don Jazzy [the co-founder]: For a long time, they don’t make decisions without D’banj’s mum’s approval.”

DAILY POST recalls that Mohits disbanded in 2012, with the co-founder, Don Jazzy, who confirmed the breakup, citing differences in interests as the reason.
