Kenya Moore really does have and “African Prince” and she is in Nigeria with him right now. He’s a singer who is very famous in Nigeria. He’s also a very successful businessman. Grab a tall glass of something and let Tamara Tattles spill all the tea for you.
Back in March of 2013 I posted a blog about Kenya Moore and a Nigerian singer being very chummy at an event in Houston, Texas. My blog was quoted by some Nigerian blogs and I remember reading their comments about D’Banj (what the hell do you shout out in bed when that is your man’s name? What? I’m just curious) who is apparently quite the ladies man, or Kokomaster as the Nigerian women refer to him. In fact, D’Banj’s lyrics are the source of the slang terms “Koko” and “Kokolette” loosely referring to a woman who is good in bed. Anyway, I have spent TWO DAYS trying to find a post that I know existed but no longer does. Perhaps it was lost somehow when I moved from Blogger to WordPress? Of perhaps there is some mysterious conspiracy involved. But I distinctly remember arguing with some Nigerian women who did not want to believe that D’Banj and Kenya were in a relationship. D’Banj is wildly popular in Nigeria and perhaps they have been keeping their relationship on the down low to avoid upsetting his fans. Yes, I know I am giving Kenya a lot of leeway lately, but she deserves a second look in my opinion.
The event in Houston was part of a Nigerian Town Hall Meeting that was held by the All Nigerian Nationals in Diaspora (ANNID), to discuss the Amnesty & Peace in the Niger Delta and D’banj was invited as the special entertainment guest. Kenya and D’Banj arrived together and left the event together in cozy fashion. Still, the Nigerians on my blog were chastising me telling me that just because two people are at an event, doesn’t mean they are dating. Kenya posted the picture of the two of them on her Instagram with the caption “My African Prince.” And at some point, that blog completely disappeared. (Thanks so much to Tootsie and Beth for helping me look for it again today.)
Here is a video of some of he Houston Event mentioned above. Thanks to an anon commenter for sending me the video from my original post.
Also last summer Kenya flew to Lagos to host D’Banj’s Birthday party. I am assuming that this is who she has been meeting up with in Dubai and staying at Burj Al Arab, the only seven star hotel in the world. In fact, she went there last February about this time. Perhaps I should check LSA as they steal every post on Tamaratattles.com. Perhaps they still have the original post I made on D’Banj. Yesterday, Kenya posted a picture of her boarding pass to Lagos which was not photoshopped and the real deal. She is now in Lagos, presumably with D’Banj, though she has not mentioned his name…yet.
Here’s what you need to know about D’Banj from NigerianMusicBox.Com :
Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo (popularly known as D’banj, born June 9, 1980), is a singer-songwriter, an harmonica player and a businessman. He is popularly known as the Koko Master and the Eja nla of Africa. He is definitely one of Nigeria’s richest musicians, an astute and a shrewd business man. D’Banj once said, “I work hard so that awards, endorsements, bookings and kokolets can chase me.” Without reservations, D’banj has a knack for making money. Apart from his music, He owns KoKo water, Koko Garri, Koko Mansion and Koko Lounge – a luxurious bar in Lagos and the united kingdom. He launched Koko Mobile making him the first Nigerian artiste to do so. He is now also planning to launch Koko mattress and Koko condoms.
The bulk of Dbanj’s earnings comes from endorsements deals. He has a multimillion naira deal with Chris Aire, as the face of his watches and another one with UAC Foods. His endorsement deal with Globacom telecommunications cost N70m. In 2013 D’banj was unveiled as the headliner for Hennessy 2013. He collects between $80,000 to $150,000 for African shows and £40,000 to £60,000 for UK shows; and $50,000 to $60,000 for American shows. He also has a lucrative deal with Power Fist energy drink, and a deal with the makers of Virgin Colour soft drink.
D’banj drives a 32 million naira Aston Martin Vantage. His latest album ‘D kings Men‘ was launched in June 2013 at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Clearly, he is a man with a preference for very expensive cars. Could the Bentley be the real deal as well? I’m starting to be a believer in Kenya, I’m just saying. I admit when I am wrong and I could have been way off base with her the last season.
So Kenya Moore appears to have been in a relationship with D’Banj for at least a year. That’s a long time! On the other hand, they only see each other a few times a year. With Kenya desperate for a baby, and D’Banj having the reputation for being rather well-endowed, (what? I research…) could she be in Nigeria trying to get herself knocked up? Or will D’Banj be putting is very own brand of condoms to good use? Could you see Kenya moving to Nigeria? And most importantly, WTF happened to my original post???
