No mo’ hits! 10 reasons it’s Don Jazzy who will lose the most

I don't know how many of you have read this article written by for Chi Ibe for Ynaija. If you're a Don Jazzy fan, you won't like this. Read below...

Okay, first let me say I am firmly #TeamDonJazzy. Well, not really. I am #TeamMoHits. But if (perhaps, when?) D’banj and Don Jazzy do finally – officially – break up, I am unquestionably #TeamDonJazzy. So, understandably, now that he is being played as the underdog in the unfolding drama over a rumoured split, I find myself taking his side.
But that’s just emotions. When it comes down to the cold, hard numbers – who stands to lose the most if the two partners split? I say Don Jazzy, and I have my reasons below.
 You're about to get seriously pissed off if you're #TeamDonJazzy...:-) Continue reading...



1.        Dbanj has Kanye (at least as far as the eyes can see)
Going by the release of today’s Oliver Twist, we are at least certain that D’banj is still in cahoots with the almighty, Kanye West. Do you really think he can lose with the mystique and power of Kanye behind him – will Kanye allow his latest African experiment fail? I doubt it seriously.
2.      D’banj is the performer
People always forget that the love that fans have for performers is strong even if the performers screw up – reference everyone from Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston. Check this out – 9ice allegedly cheated on his wife, betrayed the friend that discovered him and abandoned his producer, but do his fans love him less? Hell no. The day after the disastrous Sahara Reporters interview, did D’banj have a sold out concert in New York no matter what anyone, including YNaija  said? Hell yeah! Morale? As long as he continues to give the public the ‘Koko’, it is fine – and D’banj has it.
3.      Don Jazzy’s losing it
Don Jazzy’s biggest power is his mystique. Over the past three months it has steadily gone. There is that weird interview with Genevieve magazine, there’s the even weirder interview with Hip Hop World Magazine, where he appeared to diss rappers and then ran to his website to give a watery apology. Then there was his limpy Jonathan repudiation and his When-I-speak-they-read-it-in-Aso-Rock nonsense. Then there’s the fact that he is attending too many events, and worse off: that forgettable live performance with Tiwa Savage. Don Jazzy, backing up Tiwa?! Without D’banj by his side in any of these – the superstar power from which he feeds off – Don Jazzy has only been diminished.
4. Dbanj is also an astute businessman
The big mistake we’ve made is to stereotype D’banj. We’ve always assumed he is the entertainer and Don Jazzy is the entrepreneur, but is that truly the case? No. Insiders will tell you that just the same way Don Jazzy has multitasked as Producer-and-Businessman, D’banj has also multitasked as Performer-and-Businessman. It’s a mistake people also make with Chocolate City and EME where they think MI and Banky don’t know the business. Not true. Those guys get the business – and D’banj is no pushover.
5.      Was Don Jazzy really the boss?
So yes, in the public eye, every time D’banj wanted to say something, he had to first have Don Jazzy whisper into his ears, so he just had to be Don Jazzy’s boy, right? Oh please. Do you really think Don Jazzy was telling him anything they hadn’t already discussed and rehearsed at home? It’s show-business! It’s an act! D’banj wasn’t Don Jazzy’s boy – they were business partners. Just because he held the microphone to his crotch every chance he gets doesn’t make him dumb.
6.      Get off the stage!
I know I have mentioned this before – but still, why is Don Jazzy diluting his brand by performing? And why was he backing up Tiwa Savage? No one began to admire him because of his performance; we admired him exactly because he did not perform. He doesn’t dress well, doesn’t speak well, has a croaky voice and frankly isn’t easy on the eye. He needs to go back to the background fast. Seriously.
7.       The ‘H’ word
So I always hear this funny story about how Don Jazzy is so humble. You know, because he used to give out credit on Twitter, he responds to fans on Twitter and whatever else. And so, people say, this humility will serve him well as opposed to D’banj’s insufferable arrogance. Dear Lord, save us from the dangers of image-making. In fact, for those who have actually worked with the man – or tried to book him for an interview – you know this is just too funny. I’ll just move on before I say more.
8.      Don Jazzy has magic fingers, we all say
But does he really? We always assume his beat is so unique that it has transformed the careers of Dr. Sid, D’Prince, Wande Coal and K-Switch. Let’s analyse this urban legend. First, D’Prince and K-Switch still have no careers – that is unless you consider hanging around Don Jazzy or D’banj a career. Wande Coal’s power is his voice not his producer. Dr. Sid has just about one or two hit songs. So, perhaps we over-estimate Don Jazzy’s prowess. Did this famous prowess transform Ikechukwu’s career? Not that I can remember. Did it make of the songs he produced for Naeto C, heavy hits? Not that I know of. Did it make Darey’s music any more hits than those produced by others? Not in the least. So what are we saying?
9.      Don Jazzy is boring
Seriously, how is he going to manage to interface with the public without D’banj?  Have you heard Don Jazzy speak? Have you sat down for 30 minutes with the man? At least D’banj can quickly start talking of Kokolets and Babylets and Mamalets and any lets that can let him avoid answering intelligent questions. But Don Baba J? There’s fire on the mountain oh.
10.   Do you really care for Mohits without D’banj?
Take your time and think about this. Would Mo’ Hits be a compelling label with Dr. Sid, Wande Coal, K-Switch and D’Prince alone (why am I even calling K-Switch’s name in this matter?)? You know the truth is no. The magic of that team has always been D’banj. No one wants to see any yeye ‘Mo’Hits All Stars’ without D’banj. When they perform, D’banj makes the difference. D’banj is the icing on the cake. D’banj is also the flour in the cake. In fact, D’banj is the cake.
So there you have it – and please do not tell me both will succeed. Who’re ya trying to fool? Every time there is a break up, someone wins and someone loses. 2face won and Faze lost, 2face won and Blackface lost, 2face won and Kennis lost, Olu Maintain won and what-his-name lost, Tony Tetuila won, and then Eedris won, and Eddie is still losing, 9ice won and ID lost (I love Toni Payne, so we’ll leave her out of this). I can go on and on. Someone will get the short-end of the stick in this case. And my money, sadly, is on Don Jazzy.
But I’d be glad to be proven wrong. Oh so glad.
In the meantime, biko, Don Jazzy and D’banj; if you are breaking up, just break up already – which one is all this drama?

Well said. N that's some solid points made there... But I would lyk it for don jazzy to succeed. But he kinda needs a strong character lyk dbanj for that to happen.. Donjazzy is a couch he needs a team.. N a team leader.

IVORY CHI said...

OMG...IM NOT EVEN FOR TEAM DON JAZZY, TO BE HONEST I HAVE MY OWN ISSUES TO CARE ABOUT TO BE SAD, UPSET OR WORRY ABOUT GROWN ASS MEN LIKE DON JAZZY AND DBANJ!!!


YET WITH ALL THAT SAID, THIS WOMAN, HAS WRITTEN ABSOLUTE CRAP AND ARRANT NONSENSE.

I even regret the 2 mins of my life that I used to read the so called article (which by the way was poorly written)

OBVIOUSLY DON JAZZY WAS THE BOSS, ANYONE WITH SENSE WOULDN'T NEED not TO BE TOLD TWICE, EVEN IF HE WASN'T HOW CAN SHE TRY AND REBUT THAT FACT WITH MORE ASSUMPTIONS.

SECONDLY, HOW CAN SHE COMPARE WHITNEY AND MJ TO ....DBANJ??? THEY CAN ACTUALLY SING AND THE MAIN FACTOR THAT MAKES US ALL DANCE TO HIS SONGS IS ACTUALLY THE BEAT...PRODUCED BY DONJAZZY.

MOST ARTISTS WHO HAPPEN TO USE DONJAZZY PRODUCED BEATS ALWAYS DO WELL....ETC WANDE'S SMASH DEBUT ALBUM, D'PRINCE'S AMAZING OMOBA..ETC

HIS TALENT WAS EVEN RECOGNISED AND FEATURED ON WATCH THE THRONE, AND BTW...HOW IS KANYE WEST ALMIGHTY??? BIKONU??? EVEN IF HE IS, EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE ONLY VESTED INTERESTED THAT HE HAS IN DBANJ IS TO GET MORE MONEY, WHERE AS DONJAZZY DEFINATELY HAD MORE....IN THE WORLD OF MUSIC YOU NEED MUCH MORE THAN A POWER MENTOR TO BLOW UP.

LASTLY, PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS BE SUBJECTED TO THE RULES OF THE LANDS WHERE THEY COME FROM...SUCH IS LIFE. IN THE BIBLE IT SAYS THAT THE STONES OF OUR OLD FATHERS SHOULD NOT BE MOVED.....IT IS SUCH A COMMON ADAGE IN NIGERIA 'NOT TO BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS', I KNOW THERE IS AN IGBO VERSION AND I AM SURE IT WOULD ALSO BE SAID IN THE OTHER 245 LANGUAGES.....WITH ALL THAT SAID CHI IBE,

YOUR ARTICLE WAS TERRIBLY WRITTEN, WITH 10 POINTLESS POINTS NOT BACKED UP WITH EVIDENCE, HENCE YOU WERE TRYING TO REBUT WELL KNOWN PRESUMPTIONS WITH YOUR OWN 'WEIRDER' ASSUMPTIONS.

Awww...all these I have read are sad but True(quoting Don Baba J) The truth is I love Don J but only cos of how and what D'banj made him appear to be (the boss and I respect him) if not for the humility and respect shown to him on videos and shows by D'banj, nobody would have reckoned with that dude, I swear down! Like Chi Ibe said, d'banj is d cake in Mo'hits and the entertainer, he wld soar and shine whether arrogant or not! I hate the feeling though, that I watched Oliver twist's video and didn't see Don Jazzy, I felt it was incomplete but it was just feelings oo....not my head! Goodluck to both of them sha

D'banj business this and that then why didnt he do business in the first place when he came back from london??? I dont see him being a good investor, trust me ive had meetings with him several times and if you know business you know that he is a terrible businessman. He will end up with little or no investments, no matter how much business or what not he does. Then youre talking about Kanye, how are you sure he did not pay Kanye the same way he paid Snoop Dogg to appear. Note that Kanye West only APPEARED at the very end! I have never seen any American record label sign artists and treat them the way Kanye treats both D'banj and Don Jazzy. They seem too irrelevant to GOOD music. Remember that Kanye has nothing to gain especially from Dbanj! Dbanj has NOTHING to offer Kanye, its Kanye that has something to offer Dbanj. The same way he appeared in the video, dont forget that Don Jazzy co-produced a song in THE THRONE album by Kanye West and Jay Z. As far as im concerned Dbanj is desperate and very hungry, that is why he is always doballeing for different men and going around begging for money and so called contracts all over the place! If you know him you will know this. Whereas Don Jazzy respects his self and has pride. Dbanj's priorities have become so obvious, he is so desperate to become part of the upper class in society which is why he is either trying to associate with politicians and so on. Dbanj would rather book 4k$ rooms in florida with his girlfriends and charter private jets, buy wrist watches, chase Jennifer Obajuwana of POLO around than to go and work!

i have to agree on the fact that dbanj is Mohits,but at the same time they live off each other .wats dbanj without the jazz cos really dbanjs lyrics are not exactly what u call intelligent like that of tuface.And what is jazzy without the unbeatable performance of the koko master to flow with the beats???.these people should sort their differences and get back together.

i just pity the rest of the group cos they will suffer the most...
wande coal might benefit from all this if alot more is focused on him..lol

All of you that think Dbanj could have made it without Don Jazzy then when he came back from London he should have started entertaining by his self. He should have never tried to do anything with Don jazzy then! He should have done it all by himself and lets see how far he would have gone!!! What rubbish??? The person that wrote this is very shallow! As far as im concerned Dbanj only made it big because they worked as a team. On his own lets see how far he can go.... Let him just go and continue begging around and laying of the floor so they can be dashing him watches and money!

Anonymous said...

Im disgusted by this long rubbish! Linda why did you bother putting this up here?! This person sounds like he or she or whatever was sent to defend Dbanj. Notice when the Oliver twist video came out it had too many dislikes which is why they had to take it off before they paid some people to come and like it by force and then they put it back on!

Dude go siddon..not well thought through like some of your write ups..how presumptious..this might be a tad long..sit back..relax and enjoy the ride..
So what we gathered Don Jazzy is nothing without Dbanj in other words like bambi caught up in headlights..trust me nothing like a wounded lion with something to prove..and he would..
For the record Dbanj is not musically talented but a good enough showman...but that can only take you so far..we all love ambition the will to try the unknown so respect to that...but Ynaija was carrying on like Dbanj is 2face..Yankees at some point would see thru the crack..
Now a bit of history at a point in time there was a Producer\Artist called Babyface..wrote all the songs on waiting to exhale..hits for Boys to Men..Toni Braxton..Whitney..B.Brown..way too many hits..he had his wing man LA Reid in the background..they shared production rights and probs shared the money (millions)..it was all about LA\Face just like dem DJaz\Dbanj..all of a sudden after being courted naturally..Babyface decided he wanted out..had a hit album or two..life was sweet..but unbeknowest to most..LA Reid might not have as musically gifted or as good looking as BabyFace..but had a strong business acumen and a eye for talent..look no further than nost of the current stars you adore..brought Jayz under his wing..of course Rhianna followed thru and many more..suffice to say..he's the Def Jam Mogul..well respected within the industry and can be seen on US ..X factor..of course Simon Cowell had to seek him out..and where's Babyface today?..his wife who encouraged him then..divorced him..taking half as you do..

You can do your thing..take time out but don't see your wingman as a stepping stone when they come calling they always do ..thinking you now the man..yanks entertainment industry are very good at fuelling egos..look what they done to all them drug crazed artists dead and alive....egos that got out of control..the moment things don't work out...that's it..no more calls..no more fashion shows..no more awards..they only understand one thing..MONEY!!..
B4 Dbanj started this yankee venture..wasn't he threatened by Wande Coal's natural talent..didn't he suppress dude's progress...how can you have a hit album and not release nothing for 2 years in 9ja!!..be honest did we realy care about Dbanj..when 2face had made a serious comeback..Dagrin was blowing..Wande..Banky..Eldee..PSquare..nowWhizzkid..this move actually saved his azz to be honest..he was a fading star..lets not get sentimental here..I did think he was going to be a Full time music exec..'cos he was at a crossroads..if you follow and know music..u did understand..the motions and insecurities of performers!!

Bee said...

Complete Rubbish.

Until we see the contract Dbanj signed with Kanye, we cannot say if Dbanj's association with Kanye is for the better.....sheeet Kanye could be screwing his ass big time like most yankee record labels do to their artists.

Please Dbanj has already been losing his following in naija......Go ask pple that went to the Dec koko concert. Most of them left when Dbanj came on stage.

Also remember tickets dont sell the day of stupid......tickets were already sold prior to saharareporters interview.

Go look at the youtube comments on the olivertwist video and see if pple are still all over dbanj.

Truth is that with the exeption of Wande Coal, Mo hits artists dont have talent. You can attribute their success (however you want to measure it) to the catch Don baba J's beasts.

Also remember Don Jazzy is a producer/beat maker, he can produce and make beats for anyone. Doesn't have to be folks on his record label.

Dbanj's arrogance and his Kanye West ass licking is becoming unbearable......Africans/Nigerians are so over the "Amercian savior" mentality so believe it or not, most of Dbanj's fan would take his arrogance without the Kanye West ass licking

Like u have always said the loudest one is in most cases the weakest one.. Dbanj the cake or pounded yam of MOhits.. Very laughable.. As a performer u need good beats to perform wiv and all.. Lookn at dbanj u can actually tell he us daft.. Kokolets in my mansion.. LOL!! Dats wat he is going to singing to his American audience.. He is stupid..

This is rubbish! D'Banj has lost it. The guy does not know acata people, Kanye West?smh. He's such a fool. Let him go. Trust me, he would regret this stupid move. I have stopped liking D'Banj after spending good money to watch him over christmas and all he could do was to staggerlinco. Oloshi. We paid good money to watch this amu gbo, only for him to miam! Tiwa Savage saved the day. My friends and i left before the disgraceful show ended. There is nothing to D'Banj. I now saw his interview on Saharareporters. The idiot was so arrogant, talking about his stupid concert in New York while his homeland was burning. Guess he's getting carried away with this his friendship with Kanye.Acata are the most unreliable people, and he would surely find out. Don Jazzy, we love you!!! Let him continue to pay journalist to launder his image. Ode.

Oyin said...

Buahahhahaha!! this is so hilarious.. most especially number 8. Sad to ssa this but she was qutie true about most of it. But it felt like she has always had this serious hate for donjazzy and you could feel there were some sentiments behind the message. But anyways i think both of them would lose in the long run. forget their other business. this is jus the beginning of the death of Mohits. consider it this way, D'banj wouldn't be who he is without Donjazzy on the beat producing him likewise Donjazzy wouldn't be who he is without D'banj his major artist signed to him. so they are both gaining from eachother.
Both of them will still make it industry if they continue to work hard and not really on former glory. They are both talented. Donjazzy will make it if he finds some really talented to produce with the beats and video concepts. It will take time before D'banj loses his fans. he is definitely already especially with all the whole illuminati discussion since his collaboration with Kanye. I can really bet that if Donjazzy was involved in the oliver twist's video, it would have been better than the rubbish that was released.

Whoeva compiled dis crap is obviously beefing DON JAZZY and doesnt even know these people so well.
DAPO (DBANJ) was always a pretender forming mr friendly dude wen he came back from jand hungry, then him and don jazzy were doing boy boy for JJC 419 squad, but from then i could tell DON JAZZY was humble and was sure heading somewhere cos of course .... BIG DOGS DONT BARK... i always saw him(DON JAZZY) then taking okada from maryland estate to the bus stop and he did d same recently when he came down from his RANGE SPORT to take bike around ojodu in public cos of traffic.
my point, we all know the truth, DBANJ is an arrogant ass, see his BET interview last year when he said HE DIDNT KNOW FELA WAS THAT POPULAR IN EUROPE.. and even pronounced FELA - FELLA....
we all know the reason why GOOD music signed them is cos DON JAZZY had alot to offer them and we can tell now cos JAYZ has bursted on 6 of his beats and thinking of which to release pretty soon.
DBANJ is just one talentless fuck that will RUNDOWN in no time without DON JAZZY...
hes not a singer, hes not a rapper, hes an entertainer.. LMAO
Music in naija has changed my broda.. u nid to step up ur game DBANJ, and stop buying cars up and down...
funny part is, if u were @ koko concert last december, do you remember wat UNCLE DBANJ said.... IF NOT DAT AM A NIGERIAN, I WONT HAVE COME BACK TO DIS COUNTRY WITH ALL DESE BOKO HARAM NEWS ALL OVER...
see d idiot ooo dat was singing for Goodluck Jona that time.
SMH
UP DON BABA J
DBANJ go and beg

it is a given that this idiotic reporter has been paid by dbanj's team. Bankuli lied when he swore dbanj never said what was written in the interview, and then the girl who wrote it confirmed on ebony.com, that dbanj never told her he co-owned rather he boasted it was all his. She said she only wrote the new corrections to be nice, after some calls were made.So I wont put it beyond dbanj's team to have paid this fake donjazzy fan wanna be. This reporter is the type of friend you would have that you wouldnt even need an enemy, she is worst, i feel sorry for her friends. With that said, when all said and done dbanj's music was inspired and nursed by donjazzy, maybe it was an equal partnership, but as we hear in all his previous interview before good music, donjazzy was his heroe.I hope all goes well for them both. Sometimes things like this in life teaches you that the only person you can trust is God, no human,not even your own blood. For Dbanj i hope he knows what he is doing, and that he knows that fame doesnt last for ever. No matter what all the songs dbanj ever put out was produced and backed vocally by donjazzy. Dbanj has never done any successful song without a donjazzy's tag. But in all we don't know what tomorrow will bring for them and all we can do is wish them the best, even if our loyality is to one party.

First of all @ this Chi woman, U̶̲̥̅̊ dnt know y they split, Kanye isn't one whom I like cos his lyrics and character in his songs seem Demonic, so ild rather Don J has nothing with such people and live his life that get involved with someone or something very sophisticated, U̶̲̥̅̊ all shld remember colonial Rule, it seemed good bt also had lots of disadvantages that we in WA are suffering till today. Let's wait and se, we will know who will become what in time.

D'Banjs PR for 9Ja. First of all Wande is also a good performer. He was everything we wanted while his album was fresh. Wande is the only Nigerian artist that has trended worldwide on twitter twice. D'banj won't be able to perform Live without that team. Don jazzy beat on any Voice wld make a club banger. He did that with his untalented brother. Don jazzy is also Signed to Good music, if he still want to call that place home
Don jazzy Voice on dbanjs track made those tracks interesting. I am pretty sure D'banj has never laid a track on anyother studio aside d Mo'hit studio. This Guy wld go off tune.

How unfortunate that many of u don't reason at all???All of a sudden,D'banj has now become a houseboy abi??all in the name of 'Team Don jazzy'???SMH...Whether u D'banj haters like it or not,at least 5 of the reasons this writer gave are very true.Call D'banj all sorts of names from now till eternity,it still doesn't change the fact that he is blessed.And to that mumu who said evryone left when D'banj came on stage,ur not well at all.They left after he had performed well over 3 tracks and publicized his concert in NewYork and cracked jokes and all.It was basically the end when he announced that there was no Kanye West coming that people stood up and that was at the very end of the show so shut ur mouth....By the way,for heaven's sakes,are don jazzy's beats the only existing beats in Nigeria?All other stars making it out here in naija,are there no beats in their songs or is evry successful artiste in Nigeria signed under mo'hits,all in the name of Don Jazzy's beats?Pls shut up jare,is Don Jazzy indispensible???Hell No!However,D'banj is not dumb or unintelligent.The sahara interview was not a big deal abeg let's hear word.D'banj has never looked down on his country neither is he insensitive like some of u think.As a matter of fact,D'banj is extremely generous and has a very good heart.He's most definitely the most devoted charity donor.Let D'banj be pls.However,D'banj is still the most infectious,charismatic and energetic performer in Nigeria as far as this 21st century is concerned!and to that one asking y D'banj didn't entertain immediately he came back from London,u must be drunk!Y didn't Don Jazzy start singing too and doing everything D'banj did as an artiste?Can u answer that?Look,Don jazzy himself said it publicly on Sound city that he doesn't have the courage to entertain,he doesn't have the entertaining talent and cannot bring himself to do wot D'banj does so shut ur mouth if ur not well informed....To that one who claims he has had business meetings with D'banj in the past and that he's unintelligent,ur a flipping liar.Go ahead and write all sorts of rubbish all in the name of tarnishing D'banj's image.Nonsense!!!

I truly cannot stand Dbanj. He is just too fake and arrogant. He acts like the world revolves around him. The Koko concert was sooo boring and all he kept doing was talking about Kanye--- kanye this that- im sure if Kanye knew he was talking about him like that he would have blasted him. Someone will think he is his best friend. Don Jazzy too that was signed to GOOD music did anyone hear him screaming Kanye's name all over the place? even though we all heard the song he co-produced in the Throne Album with Kanye and Jay z we did not hear him make the noise Dbanj was making. Dbanj is just desperate to be Big and Desperate to be rich. Was it not the same Dbanj that was following Diezani's children in private jet??? I have never seen anything more shameless than the stupid boy. He will be taking his self to levels that is not meant for him. He needs to calm down and relax.

This is what you get when you are not humble. Dbanj is not humble at all. He is so BIG headed! Let him turn to God abeg.

Alicia says... said...

This is all a publicity stunt, probably fueled by Kanye himself. It reminds me of the Kanye vs 50 cent beef, and the race to see who would sell more albums the first week. it was just a publicity stunt to get fans to purchase their music. SMH. this is probably the same case. but in Naija, will it work?

anyway, producers usually aren't very well-known and are usually low-key. you only hear about Don Jazzy cause he says his name in every song he produces and also appears in all the videos. but he is a PRODUCER!!! he will not suffer if D'banj goes, it is D'banj who will suffer? has he ever made a successful hit without Don Jazzy? HELL NO!!! All Don Jazzy has to do is discover new talent and keep doing what he does, nothing do him.

No mo’ hits! 10 reasons it’s Don Jazzy who will lose the most

Before I start let me let u know that am so #teamDonjazzy I av been during the mohits era and I will continue to be after. 


I will reply to this as listed.  1-10

1. I love Kanye and it's without a doubt that Kanye can definitely drop Dbanj in a heart beat.  From the Good Music website, Dbanj was signed as an artist. Don Jazzy was signed as a producer.  I don't think I need to make point about how producers even though low key are more relevant than artists. 


2.  What that Sahara Reports reviewed to us is that Dbanj has a shitty attitude and because he is an entertainer he believe he can get away with alot......one day he would understand! There is a major gap, career wise between MJ, Whitney and Dbanj's career.......Dbanj will continue to have sold out concerts, I will continue to dance to his songs.....but it's clear to see that Dbanj has an inflating ego and I need not say what happens to people like that. Two words Character and Talent. One always screws up the other.


3.  Am sorry.....if this is allowed to stand then Dbanj is also GUILTY. So I guess u can say they are both diminishing, the only fact is that everyone seems to be #teamdonjazzy


4. Dbanj is also an astute businessman
The big mistake we’ve made is to stereotype D’banj. We’ve always assumed he is the entertainer and Don Jazzy is the entrepreneur, but is that truly the case? No. Insiders will tell you that just the same way Don Jazzy has multitasked as Producer-and-Businessman, D’banj has also multitasked as Performer-and-Businessman. It’s a mistake people also make with Chocolate City and EME where they think MI and Banky don’t know the business. Not true. Those guys get the business – and D’banj is no pushover.

Misyans. You forget that d'banj has no talent. Kanye West standing next to d'banj in a video means nothing. In all seriousness i wish d'banj the best and he will soldier on but the chemistry he had with don jazzy to me really covered up for his inefficiencies in the talent department.
Sucks for d'banj because now he will have to forge that chemistry elsewhere which for all we know could make him better but i seriously doubt that.
Sucks for don jazzy because now he has a label with no lead act. His main challenge now will be trying to build up wande coal as the new lead act of mo hits which to me is for the best because wande coal >>>>>>>>>>d'banj

I am more inclined to think both D'Banj and Don Jazzy's careers will head south after separation and it is based on my observation of the Nigerian music scene.
All the examples given in the article where one star continues to shine while the other dims were between two singers. The history of Musician-Producer unions in Nigeria showed that after separation, both crash.
Laolu Akins produced Shina Peters' Ace and Shinamania which were major hits and then they separated. Shina Peters had not found his feet since then.
ID Cabasa produced 9ice's Gongo Aso and then they separated. His subsequent albums had been below standard.
K-Solo produced Timaya's first 2 albums and then they separated. His last album did not make any impact.
Too many examples abound. I think it's not going to be the same for both of them.

I think everyone is just talking with sentiments lol, if u all think clearly, dbanj has every right to look for even bigger things.

Oh Dear Dbanj why wont they let u be Big? lol

Frenchie said...

Nice write-up is it from you Linda?
What I want to know is who is the lyricist of the duo? Don Jazzy was once quoted saying he wouldn't sign any new artist because he didn't have a good song to promote him
Lyrics that's where the money is and a good producer but you can find them quite easily
P-Square and 2baba are their own lyricists and they have their own record labels they have understood everything when it comes to the african market
But I agree with you if D'Banj have the full support of Kanye he will be fine
That said I don't trust that Kanye guy

I do not know for other people oooo but for me the reason why I listen to D'banj's music is just because of the melody nothing more,he has no message ,no lyrics.When you talk about Lyrics you talk about people like Tface and M.I.If D'b departs there are still so many other things D'J could do for himself.This write up is not constructive because their destinies are not tied together.Who knows D'J could do better things tomorrow and D'b may find things not working out as planned.It is wrong to make an assertion by mere speculation.

I think d most important thing is to know whose side Sunday Are is....1thing 4sure is dbanj is not gonna lose financially, fame, power but jazzy has a chance if he has Sunday on his side.

In a nut shell the person that wrote dis was paid by Dbanj.Don Jazzy is a very humble person u cannt take it from him.Btw Don Jazzy's beat makes Dbanj's songs sell.Wande sings better than Dbanj.I love the 2 of them together and i wish them all the best.I know the 2 of them Dbanj is arrogant and Don Jazzy is very humble so dis Chi gal shld jest shout her trap.

Jiggaman said...

Linda i wanted to comment on this article but after reading what "IVORY CHI" said, its like she read my mind and has stated all the facts. we all know D banj can't sing thats why he backs his act up with those funny gimmicks he does. everyone knows how Wande was put down in Mo Hits so Dbanj can have his way and lastly the writer of that article is DUMB cos Good Music actually signed Don Jazzy as a producer and D banj as an artiste. on Kanye and Jay Z's album "Watch The Throne" there is a certain track called "Lift Off" with production credits going to "Kanye and Don Jazzy" so i suggest the writer to do a little more research on the subject matter before publishing things that will mislead people. for me Don Jazzy should shut up this critics by geeting up a new group or continuing with the Mo Hits crew (without D banj) and sign more artiste and give us more hits in less than two years D banj would be a forgotten issue in music as no artiste in Good Music has made any headway since joining the group (Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Big Sean) even Common had to leave Good Music so as to release his latest album on another label so i have my hands folded and my chips beside me as i wait to see how d banj's (WHO CAN"T SING) would break into world music. Even @face is still highly more regarded than him music wise

Once upon a time again 50 cent thought he had it all, without music he's a good business man where the fuck is 50 cent today?

When you see your life is going to the unquestionable part always thank God and keep your daily activities positive with everyone around you..... Lets see D banj in 5yrs from now if he's able to keep up the standard or he might quit music... Don Jazzy aint just a producer but too creative with a style people call swag to catch all attention without singing

I personally don't agree with the people saying that Don Jazzy is nothing without D'Banj. I think the people who have followed D'Banj's career from the beginning know that he was lucky to have met Don Jazzy. Even D'Banj acknowledged that in one of the skits in his first album! DBanj had no talent and everyone told him so(playing the mouth organ can hardly be regarded as talent), yet Don Jazzy took him as he was and made a star out of him by his sheer music producing genius. Who else can understand his style like Don Jazzy who moulded him into what he is today. I wish him all the best as he tries to fit into Kanye West's style. Don Jazzy has a midas touch and will always be alright with or without D'Banj. Ride on Jazzy!

You guys shouldn't end it up in such manners. You guys have been together for many years why at this point you are getting separated. Please don't allow enemies to put asunder. You guys should reconcile back with your friendship for many years. Cheers

I can see that the person that wrote this article is a die hard d'banj fan.....which makes this article biased from the start..which is why I wouldn't bother to give my honest reply. Team donjazzy, Wandecoal and Dr Sid always (saying that Dr Sid only had 1 or 2 hits)....Pop champagne, over d moon, something about u.....plz do better research next time or did d'banj pay u to write this?????
.........Can ur album sell repeatedly without a good producer when every1 knows that LYRICALLY d'banj is wack?????

Anon March 20, 2012 12:04 PM; i think the first part of your note may be what broke the friendship/partnership. Don J may have seen it as some sort of betrayal. Good luck to D'Banj he should be ready to be dining with the beast. As long as he worships the beast he will make money. But at what price?

I am not a Dbanj or Donjazzy fan and i tink alot of pple cant really see who d real talent is in Mo'Hits...Wande is d best of the lot, talk of vocals...he's got it. All is nids is a very gud song writer and the sky wnt even be his limit...nonetheless i wish donjazzy n dbanj all da best. To all haters n "beefers" abeg leave dem alone ki lo de gan let them be and let time take its course....

When D’Banj & Don Jazzy (Mo’Hits) signed on to Kanye West’s GOOD MUSIC, I was wondering what will happen to the rest of the Mo’Hits crew?///…

Maybe it’s in the best interest of the Mo Hits crew that they both end their partnership. I wish the entire Mo Hits crew the very best of luck in their career.

…just wondering why we are hearing all this from the press? You will expect an official statement from Mo’Hits management or a press conference at least, involving the Mo’Hits crew about a change in structure. Nothing so far on their official web page http://www.mohitsrecords.com/.

Don Jazzy and Dbanj need each other. I don't think Don Dazzy will lose cos he is just going to keep producing other artists from mohits. Dbanj may have signed to G.O.O.D music but everyone is missing the point that G.O.O.D music is an American recording company. Dbanj is Nigerian. so, they may try to americanize Dbanj's style which might be a disadvantage for him. Also, Dbanj owes Don Jazzy his success because it was because of Don Jazzy's production skills i.e making the beats that made ppl like Dbanj's music. Lets be honest, Dbanj is not lyrically talented but he is a great performer and he owes his performance to the beats and production behind his voice. Don Jazzy knows Dbanj's taste and style of music, G.O.O.D music doesn't; Don Jazzy needs to hang around Dbanj and help him strengthen his music with G.O.O.D music. Just because Dbanj signed with Kanye doesn't mean that Kanye will look out for Dbanj's best interest like Don Jazzy has done all this time. Over here in America, once u sign any contract, they can do whatever they like with u whether u like it or not. its all about making money even if the artist disapproves of certain things. Dbanj is stepping into G.O.O.D music as someone's artist and not his own boss. With that said, they need each other but Dbanj needs Don Jazzy more. #TeamDonJazzy

Well am not surprised dbanj is having issues with the producer that brought him out of nowhere. I mean its not d 1st time something like dis is happening in naija music. A producer works his ass off to bring up an artiste n just becos the artiste thinks he is a grown up man, so d producer becomes crap all of a sudden! Dbanj will succeed for a while cos he now has illuminati connection. But plzzzzz Don jazzy will always be in d business! Did kenny's music not survive when 2face abandoned them?

What u dont know is when you are up, the only way to stay up is to be humble, and dbanj has stepped on many toes....so believe me hes coming down fast!!!!!

Anonymous said...

This is just crap of bullshits, Dbanj can never produce a successful song with an American producer because they don't know the African beats well. I pity Dbanj becuz none of Kanye group will be there when naija people will start stoning him on stage and street, i trust my fellow Nigerians they can destroy proud people career easily. for Don jazzy, please don't be worried because you have set pace for yourself by even co-producing a song for Jazzy and Kanye...i am waiting to hear pretty soon the outcome of you both so we can actually judge who will laugh last..

I am sorry to say but the person who wrote this DOES NOT KNOW anything about Don Jazzy, Dbanj or any member of Mo Hits.

the monkey that compiled dis shit didnt even get facts before writing,d monkey forgot IDJA was also signed to GOOD music as a producer,d monkey forgot that dbanj has so many failed ventures e.g kokowater,kokolounge,kokomobile, d monkey forgot lyrically, dbanj is not too endowed,IDJA's beat has always been d key to all dbanj's hits. dis writer na heavy mumu, wande coal for they sing acapella make we know whether nigerians go buy him CD mtchh!!!

This is exactly how i thought!
Abi theres no such thing as bad publicity - kim kardashian is the most fantastic example of this.
By writing such a one sided arguement this blogger has gathered so much traffic to the website

I then had a thought
Isn't this the same about idja and dbanj??
If dbanj and idja seperated ways peacefully and went about their business people would be sad but wish them both luck
No it 'seems' like theres bad blood, everybody has an opinion on who will succeed, who will fail - thus making us anticipate and eager to find out what which will do next!

I understand they're both still signed to G.O.O.D. so it cant be that much bad blood between the two that neither seem necessary to leave their contract
So i'll just give it a couple years until mo hits do a reunion tour a la take that, spice girls, backstreet boys etc

linda let me ask you a question. Without don jazzy where would dbanj be? To be candid, I dont like the way you are sychophanting dbanj. And don jazzy boring? You are absolutely wrong. Dbanj is rather boring and an educated idiot because he calls himself a youth ambassador but doesnt care about the youths. Sick post!

Anonymous said...

For all you dbanj bashers, he already has a song for you.

"Some people na pray make I slow, some people no wan make I grow, no, olorun maje ooooo."

He and Don Jazzy are singing that ALL the way to the bank. #Trustthat.

I am a novice in this Dbanj and Don Jassy matter. But if DON JAZZY is the boss as lots of you want to make us believed, how come everyone come to know Dbanj and how come his name form all of the popular name. How come it isnt something else?

The story behind the saying "u can't eat ur cake and have it"

A little princess was to have her birthday the next day and so a cake was baked and ready in the kitchen.
She was a sweet tooth and badly wanted a piece of the cake but her caretaker told her she couldn't until tomorrow.
In the middle of night when she was sure everyone was asleep, the princess tiptoed to the kitchen to steal a taste of the delicious looking cake but ended up finishing it all.
The next morning she woke up excited and ran to the caretaker asking if she could have her cake now..?? And the caretaker turned to her and said ... " No princess; you can't eat your cake and still have it"
THE END!

ok reallly?????????
some people just sit waste their time and ink to write only GOD know what to call it RUBBISH??? i bet that guy has not seen don jazzy once in his life not to talk about having a conversation with him any way that not the point, the point is as much as i am a big fan of Nigeria music if don jazzy and d'banj wants to break up sad though but why not people make up and break up everyday......................

If you ask me, I think your write up was a personal diatribe set out to attack Don Jazzy’s person, ridicule his achievements, and smear his professional career. It was parochial, myopic, unresearched, uninformative, baseless and contradictory. Your points did not show in anyway how Don Jazzy would be worse for it if they split. It was full of half truths, bias and illogicalities despite your claim to be on the #Team Don Jazzy side (I think you just said that to deceive your readers). You even tried playing God with the tone of your opinion, concluding that Don Jazzy will be the one to fail if they eventually split. God have mercy on you!
In a country like ours, where her government is insensitive and highly corrupt, where a vast majority of its people live in excruciating poverty, where there are no jobs, where its youths aren’t catered for, where the dreams and aspirations of young people are stifled by a hostile environment, I think people like Don Jazzy should be celebrated for their contributions. For a man who will be 30 in November, 2012, to have set up a label, gotten artiste signed on, given them a life as well as creating employment for a whole lot of people. For someone whose has done beyond just production. He has provided direction to the careers of Dbanj, Wande Coal, Dr.sid and trying to help D’ Prince and K’switch. He has put a whole lot of effort into honing their careers, taking strategic and managerial decisions on these individuals; your article speaks less of such an individual.
So if eventually there is a split, Don Jazzy will remain so will the Mo’Hits platform while he tries to continue helping other musicians with their careers. He has come too far to be a FAILURE!!!
