BEFFTA Awards Honour D’Banj in House of Parliament, UK: Indeed A Celebration of An ICON

By
It was indeed a nite of honour and the celebration of an Icon for the African Legend Music Star, D’Banj known as the “Kokomaster”, when he was honoured at the House of Parliament, in the city of London by BEFFTA Awards, hosted by the founder of the Big issue magazine, Lord John Bird of Notting Hill.
Gbedu magazine reveals that the event took place on the 10th November, 2016 by 17:30pm at the Committee Room 4A, Houses of Parliament, Westminster, in United Kingdom; under the watchful eyes of BEFFTA Chairman, Bimbo Roberts Afolayan, Founder/CEO, Dr. Pauline Long and Afro Beat Media CEO, Buchi Henry Mbagwu.
The BEFFTA Founder, Dr. Pauline Long said that the decision to recognize the artiste this way was because D’ Banj is universally recognised as one of the most consistent industry forerunners who has also inspired and paved the way for many new artistes who are now fully established in their musical endeavours at present.
Asking D’ Banj if, as a former Diasporan, he would be willing to visit local schools in London to give talks to kids who know his music and dance to his songs.
 In response, D’banj said that, that will be something that he would be extremely glad to do, adding that he once paid such a visit to a school in Plumstead and would love to organise such a visit again.
Similarly, in expressing appreciation and admiration for the Super Star, Lord Bird of Notting Hill said he has much respect for someone so young who is a world known icon but carries out a large amount of charity and humanitarian work that is kept well out of the public view.
Consequently, the trendy singer showed off his award on his IG page with the caption, “Yesterday, I received the #BEFFTA Entertainment Icon Award at the British House of Parliament in Westminster, London From Lord John Bird.
I am Humbled for this unique opportunity to be a beacon of Visible Hope. Ooooossshhhee!”
The multiple MTV European Music Award, BET Award, World Music Award, and MOBO Award winner is marking his return to the UK, after four years, with concerts in three cities; Manchester on 11 November, Birmingham on 12 November and he will end the show on Sunday 13 November at Indigo O2 in London.
He will be on tour with a star-studded Afrobeat artistes featuring rising Nigerian Pop star Tekno.
