Double Wrist-watch wearing Dapo Oyebanjo aka D Banj totally disappointed his fans in far away Harare, Zimbabwe with a below par performance at the Lion Lager Summer Beer Festival concert he was part of on Saturday, October 26, 2013. According to the report, infact he was the show's headliner. So disappointed were the fans that the report about the concert made headline news in the country, because they had expected so much. Unlike how Nigeria's superlative duo P-Square took the same country by storm, with their electrifying, D Banj instead disappointed his many thousands of fans, with a below par or very poor performance.
According to NewsDay
D’Banj disappoints as Bebe Cool shinesNIGERIAN musician D’Banj born, Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo, proved more of a studio than stage musician as he failed to perform to expectations for hundreds of Zimbabweans who thronged the Glamis Arena for the Lion Lager Summer Beer Festival on Saturday night.

The Fall in Love hitmaker’s performance approximated local dancer Beverly Sibanda’s style as he spent much of his time speaking about how Zimbabwean ladies were good at waist-twisting. D’Banj went on to invite 10 ladies, one at a time, including Amara Brown to join him on stage.
Regardless of some of his tracks such as Fall in love, Pop Something, Why Me, Mr Endowed, and Oliver Twist being popular in the country as they received massive airplay on local radio stations and rocked night clubs, the night belonged to his visiting counterpart, Ugandan ragga musician Bebe Cool, real name Moses Ssali.
Bebe Cool put up a sterling performance that sent fans into frenzy matching local artistesgbsdr who included King Shady, Guspy Warrior and Winky D, who also proved were serious contenders in the genre.
Dancehall star King Shaddy put up a scintillating performance as an opening act, showing energy as he belted some of his hits.
With the top-notch opening performance by King Shaddy, man-of- the moment Guspy Warrior was next to take to the stage.
The Seunononga hit-maker did not disappoint as he belted out sing-along-hits like Seunononga, 31 October, among others. After Guspy Warrior, it was Bebe Cool who took to the stage full of energy, he managed to keep the fans on their feet with a top drawer performance.
His well-choreographed act was well received by fans. He sang some of his songs that included Coccidiosis, Fitina and Mambo Mingi among others. Bebe Cool went on to salute Winky D, describing him as a talented dancehall chanter. Winky D was next, determined to prove his credentials as the self-styled dancehall king. As usual, the Mafirakureva hitmaker left fans begging for more.
The atmosphere became even electric when Winky D introduced the popular Tendazvaitwa “Lipsy” Chitimbe on stage. As a closing act, D’Banj found it difficult to match the previous performers who had set great standards. Popularly known as The Kokomaster, D’Banj failed to match what his countryman P Square, did last year at the same event.
A top Zimbabwean blogger Victoria Maposa (Victoria's Closet) also reported the performances thus; http://vicscloset.com/dbanj-bebe-cool-the-prostitutes-in-zimbabwe/

D’Banj and Bebe Cool jetted into the country last week for Lion Lager Summer Beer Fest’s Battle Of Africa that was held over the weekend.
Word from those that attended the show is that Bebe Cool lived up to expectations but D’Banj’s perfomance was below par.
A source, who is a taxi driver at Crown Plaza Hotel where the two artists lodged, cofirmed to Victoria’s Closet that the artists had a good time with the ladies of the night during their stay at the hotel.
“They (the artists) would send for prostitutes now and again whom they would pay $30 each for ‘short time’. They ended up accruing major hotel bills for the extra plates of food that they signed for due to this. However, Delta was paying for all those bills”,
