Award winning singer, D’banj announced today via his Instagram page that he has officially signed Nollywood actress and singer, Tonto Dikeh to his record label, DB Records.
Tonto known for her various roles in Nigerian blockbusters, began making her transition from the Nollywood film screen to the african music industry in 2012, when she self produced and self published a number of tracks such as ‘Hi’, ‘Jeje’, ‘Sheba and ‘High’ to name a few.
On release many of the records were heavily criticized by her fans and fellow peers in both the music and film industries, all advised that she remain in the arena where she was successful due to her limited vocal ability. However, with a music powerhouse like D’banj behind her we can only imagine whats to come.
This new signing makes Tonto, the First Lady of DB Records, a label that holds an array of artiste including D’banj’s brother Kayswitch.
Congratulations Tonto for getting signed and kudos for continuing to pursue your dreams even though others told you not to.
