Kanye West Signs Nigerian Rappers, Kisses Olsen Twin
"Lord I thank you for being So GOOD to us. On such a special day u have decided to humble us more! I'm speechless. Congrats Bro.. It's TIME [sic]," tweeted D'banj, who celebrated his 31st birthday on the day of his announcement (June 9). "Just like yesterday myself and my brother did Tongolo. 7yrs later Mo' Hits signs with Good Music. Best birthday gift ever. God thank u."
D'Banj is an award-winning singer-songwriter and harmonica player, who released his debut album, 'No Long Thing,' on producer-singer-songwriter Don Jazzy's Mo' Hits Records in 2005.
Although G.O.O.D. Music reps have yet to confirm the signing, rumors have been circulating since February, when Kanye tweeted at the two artists. "Yo @iamdbanj and @donjazzymohits get back to NY asap there is still work to be done," he wrote.
Kanye performed in Brooklyn last night with his G.O.O.D. music crew, including Pusha, CyHi, Mr. Hudson, Big Sean, Kid Cudi, and a special appearance by Q-Tip, as part of Heineken's Red Star Access tour.
The famed rapper has also been romantically linked to yet another blonde celeb, after being spotted making out with thimble-sized actress Mary-Kate Olsen at a New York City nightclub during his 34th birthday party on Wednesday (June 8).
