D'Banj to perform at Afcon closing

INTERNATIONALLY-acclaimed Nigerian musician D'Banj, real name Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo, is excited about being asked to perform his popular motivational ditty, Top of the World, at the Afcon closing ceremony at National Stadium in Crown Mines outside Soweto on Sunday evening.

"I am honoured and words fail to describe the warmth I get from my fans in this country," D'Banj said. "I am looking forward to having more than 6.6-billion viewers globally watch my performance."

D'Banj will share the stage with local acts including Micasa, Kelly Khumalo, Zonke Dikana, and Thembisile Ntaka. Micasa's frontman, J Something, whose real name is Joao da Fonseca, - said for the group, just being on that stage was a blessing in itself.

"Representing our country and Africa as a whole is an honour, and - for such a big show, it does not matter whether we are performing our songs," said the colleague of other Micasa stars, Dr Duda (Sipho Mphahlaza) and Mo T (Moshe Kgasoane).

An equally excited Kelly Khumalo also said it was an honour to be in the line-up.

"Finally, the world will get to see what I am capable of," she said. - motaud@sowetan.co.za
