D’banj and his wife Lineo Didi Kilgrow continue to lead a low profile life, away from the singer’s shining career.
Speaking with Vanguard yesterday, D’banj revealed how he’s been to strike a balance between his family life and career, noting that his stage name is just a mere ‘costume’ he wears to entertain crowds, and he pulls this off and leaves it at the door each time he comes home to his family.
“When you see the actors or footballers in the club, they’re just normal people, but when the footballers put on their jersey and get on the field, they’re different people entirely.
I was with Obafemi Martins in the club recently and he was just a normal person but when he wears the jersey, he’s a different person. So like I said, one just needs to understand what you do. As an entertainment person, it’s part of me.
When I wear my costume as D’banj, I get to entertain my people but then I’ve my privacy and if you check it properly for the last decade, even if I’m out there I keep my private life very private.
If you know how to strike a balance and then God blesses you with the right wife that can understand then you’re good. […] I just do what I do. But I think it’s just by doing what I know how to do best and being true to myself, being original. Also, believing in God and touching base with your foundation, where you’re coming from. For a very long time I’ve always tried to understand my calling, I think that’s one thing that has helped me to get to this level and it’s been an interesting ride.”
