D’Banj had this to say about the partnership:
I have always said content is the new Crude Oil and it takes people to create content. This is why I love what the Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) and AfroZons are doing here. After the global Covid 19 pandemic people and economies are trying to bounce back, stress free. The AfroZons Dubai Soundoff drives that purpose by bringing people together in a stress free environment.
I am excited to be part of this project and look forward to the many ways we can make the Dubai Soundoff a massive success.
D’banj is also the founder of Koko Foundation for Youth and Peace Development. He was Nigeria’s first United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace, a recognition he got for using his high celebrity status to attract attention to serious and critical issues in Africa.
