Nigerian music superstar and one of Africa’s biggest music export in the last decade Dapo Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj has signed an exclusive management deal with CSA. In association with D’Banj’s own DKM Media Group, the deal will see both CSA and DKM jointly manage the artist’s entire roster including the “Kokomaster” himself.
His new deal is said to comprise actual business partnerships (including but not limited to new music releases, touring, brand endorsements) while he and CSA Global continue to manage the talent discovered on CREAM.
“This is a true media & entertainment collaboration across the continent,” says D’Banj. “As an artiste, I have enjoyed working with CSA for many years and I believe that when two strong entities come together, the table is set for success!”
At CSA, he joins a long line of talent that has had the organization represent them- Akon, Djimon Hounsou, Kimora Lee Simons, Bonang Matheba, Wesley Snipes and Jean-Claude Van Damme are some of the names that have been on the company’s books.
“The relationship with D’Banj has been five years in the making and it’s a blessing to work with such an industry leader. We’re excited to be working with him and DKM on the next chapter and help grow the continent’s entertainment industry,” says Davin Phillips, Executive Director of CSA Global talent.
