Nigerian music superstar D'Banj has been verified on famous social media website, Facebook. 

D'banj becomes the first Nigerian celebrity and the second Nigerian to get a verified facebook account. Before now, President Goodluck Jonathan was the only Nigerian with a verified account on the social media website.

Dbanj's account with Facebook now carries a 'blue tick' sign to show the authentic account of the singer and distinguish it from other parody accounts. 

Unlike twitter, which has more than a few Nigerian public figures verified on its platform, getting verified on facebook is more difficult.
