“Music Cannot Sustain Artists’ Luxury Lifestyle” – D’Banj

Afrobeats singer D’banj has said music is not enough to sustain the luxury lifestyle of music artists.


The “Gbono Feli Feli” singer during a recent chat with Premium Times said that he’s had to source for other sources of income to keep his family in the style they’re accustomed to.

“I tell people this, music brings you into the room but what you do in that room is entirely up to you. So if you’ve read, which I know you have, you see that I’ve been more focused, especially when I became a family man,” he said.

“It’s my sixth year in marriage, and ever since then, I’ve looked for different platforms that would keep my fame and family intact. So if you were to Google Jay Z or the wealthiest musicians in the world, you would see that only 10 percent of their wealth is probably from music.”

When asked if music was profitable or not, the D’banj said yes “but music alone is not enough to attain that luxury lifestyle that musicians love.”

On New Year’s Day, January 1, 2021, D’banj announced the birth of his daughter Zane. The singer and his wife already have a son who they welcomed in 2019 after their first child, a boy drowned in a pool.

The singer who’s one of Afrobeats first music export was ensnarled in a r**e slander in 2020.
