  4. Menhhh, Point of correction Mr. man don’t compare 2baba and Dbanj bcuz Dbanj himself dey alwayz talk say 2baba na him mentor. where u dey when him dey talk am? U can even see it by d awards you listed. U stil not include awards of 2012 2baba won. But d little u listed even show say 2baba is far far away from Dbanj. 2baba is Legend. God bless u 2baba. U will never come down instead still dey highest.
