Star artist and entertainer D'banj also called Bangalee organised a rap competition for upcoming talents as part of his year-long celebration activities marking his 10th anniversary in African music. The competition began on August 1, and has finally come to a close after an estimate of 8,000 entries were registered as the competition ran. In October, D'banj short-listed five finalists in what he described as a very hectic challenge. The finalists were announced on social media and D'banj proceeded to explain that he would let the people decide and opened voting on his Instagram page. d-3 D'Banj, however, has announced that rather than choosing one winner which he originally planned, he has decided to pick three. The top 3 finalists @itseme_itse, @ola_dips and @officialbils will go home with a Lenovo A500 courtesy of Slot Nigeria, while the contestant with the most likes on D'Banj's Instagram page who turns out to be female rapper @iteme_itse! wins $1000 dollars. d-1
