D’Banj has always built his music career around an undisputed reputation as ‘the ultimate entertainer’ right from his debut in 2005. Having featured on 2Baba’s “Baecation”, joining DJ Tunez and Flash for “Ojoro” and releasing solo singles like “Mo Cover Eh” and “Shy” this year alone, the Koko Master has certainly enjoyed an elongated lifespan of relevance that’s reserved for only elite entertainers. He has spent years proving his proficiency at pleasing audiences with his daring music performance but now, Jadesola Osiberu is offering him a chance to try his hand at the Nollywood screen with her coming film, “Sugar Rush”.
The anticipation for Jadesola Osiberu’s “Sugar Rush” reached new heights when she announced D’Banj as a part of the cast for the film. Bisola Aiyeola, Omoni Oboli, Toke Makinwa, Tobi Bakare, Nkem Owoh, Adedimeji Lateek, Zack Orji and Bimbo Ademoye were also included on the cast list she shared on her IG. And according to the video she shared, the movie is expected to hit the cinemas this Christmas. With her production credit on acclaimed movies like “Isoken” and TV series like “Rumour Has It”, we are really looking forward to seeing tho the film plays out and of course, how D’Banj’s character is depicted.
See the announcement video below.
