Music star and entrepreneur, D’banj, says the fear of poverty made him think out of the box to create wealth.
He said Nigerian youth must go the extra mile, be creative and have a new perspective to be relevant and make wealth.
The entertainer said this in Lagos on Wednesday at the 2018 Social Media Week Lagos which began on Monday. D’banj spoke on the topic: ‘Changing the Game: Artistes are leaders’.
“The fear of being poor made me to think out of the box to create wealth for myself and remain relevant,” he said.
“Fame will not guarantee you money; fame will not give you wealth, but it can give you what you need if you channel it properly.
“Channelling your fame properly to create wealth is another advantage that stands you out.”
He said it was high time artistes created brands for themselves and be ambassadors of their own brand.
Uzoma Dozie, managing director, Diamond Bank, said the bank would invest in artistes if information and data available on their revenue flow would be available.
Dozie called for professionalism in the music industry especially as more people would be going digital.
“What you do to inspire people and how you do it matter,” he said.
NAN reports that Social Media Week Lagos is currently in its sixth edition with the theme ‘Closer’.
The event, which will end on March 2, features discussions covering the future of the media, tourism, governance, gender inclusion, entertainment and emerging ideas and trends across the globe.

Suge Knight sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary murder
American rap mogul, Suge Knight has been sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter.
In January 2015, the former Death Row Records CEO was arrested and charged with murder after he was involved in a hit-and-run at a Los Angeles restaurant parking lot. Knight allegedly got into a confrontation with two men while on the set of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
According to prosecutors, Knight proceeded to follow the men to a nearby burger restaurant, where he ran over them with his car. One of the men struck, Terry Carter, died from his injuries. The other, Cle Sloan,, suffered injuries to his head and foot. Knight fled the scene of the incident before authorities arrived.
Knight, who turned 53 in April, had been facing the possibility of life in prison. His no contest plea came days before his trial was scheduled to begin on Monday (September 24). Knight will get credit for the three-and-a-half years he already served while awaiting the trial.
Aside from the murder charge, Knight was also facing a second-degree robbery charge for an incident in 2014 in which he and comedian Katt Williams are accused to have stolen a paparazzi’s camera. In 2017, he was indicted on charges of “threatening death or bodily injury” against Staight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray, to which Knight pleaded not guilty.
Knight was previously sentenced to nine years in prison in 1997 after violating his probation stemming from an earlier assault charge. After being granted early release in 2001, he was sent back to prison in 2003 after assaulting a parking attendant.
Knight, who has experienced a series of health issues in recent years, told the judge he expects to die in prison.
