Danfo Drivers Cry Out: “we’re being sidelined!!!”

Danfo Drivers - too close for comfort!!

Danfo Drivers - too close for comfort!!

one of Nigeria’s hot reggae/dance hall act, Danfo Drivers have voiced out their grievances against Awards organizers in Nigeria – Hiphop World Awards and Nigeria Entertainment Awards especially – who somehow have failed to recognize the achievements of the ragga duo.

Questioning the criteria in which judges select their nominees for their awards, the duo argue that their achievement was noteworthy both home and abroad and as such they deserved at least one nomination.

“Who among the entire nominee’s apart from Dbanj, Tuface, 9ice and Psquare, etc is enjoying international exposure like we do? Who is selling Nigeria music to the world like we do?” they argue.

The heavy acceptance of Mimi, one of the tracks off their third album, Meshango, proves that the duo haven’t lost their street credibility and they intend to keep it that way.

“Awards or award we Danfo Driver are the biggest reggae duo in Africa, and also we are not even thinking of changing our Ajegunle pattern of music, rather position it as one of Nigeria most wanted genre of music because it has always enjoy support.”

You would recall that Danfo Driver first hit the limelight with a monster debut album “AM A DANFO DRIVER SUO.” The title track also made history as it featured in a soundtrack for the Hollywood movie, Phat Girlz.

Their sophomore Polongo even recorded a bigger success.

The duo have performed in several African and European countries like Athens; Sweden UK, Germany, Spain,Italy, Switzerland, and the host of other countries in European, Sierra Leone, Benin Republic,Togo,Ghana,just to mention a few

Meanwhile, the organizers of the 4th edition of the Hiphop World Awards issued a press statement recently “to clarify certain criteria surrounding the choice of nominees.”

I guess the press statement would help ease the mind of the ragga duo and management.
