D'banj goes down low. Article written by James Silas

Here's an article I read and found interesting. Written by publicist and entertainment business consultant, James Silas. Read the article below and share your thoughts afterwards.
D'banj Goes Down Low - By James Silas
Two years ago, it would have been almost impossible for D’Banj to do a collaboration with an Olamide even if the latter had attained this much attention with his music, but today D’Banj is struggling for another hit since “Oliver Twist”.
Once upon a time (October 14, 2010), I tweeted “Partnerships can hardly work, not unless you’re a duo like Don Jazzy and D’Banj”… this tweet was “favourited” by Don Jazzy. Then two years later (2012), the statement returned to me – void!

A D’BANJ topic at this point in time would arouse mixed feelings, especially amongst and within fans and pundits. Many would never come to an agreement while some would rather rest the case for another day. We cannot rule out the fact that most people including yours truly are yet to phantom the reality that the ‘Koko Master’ and his erstwhile buddy, Don Jazzy are no longer together – A creative and business divorce.

The breakup cleared arguments about Don Jazzy as a major influence and source of the quality and quantity of music that came from D’Banj. The source of the music was the least of my problem – I just loved what I heard from production to vocals and lyrics. Everything was fine. There’s no point going into the obvious – we all know the breakup story. The last song that was officially promoted on Mo’hits was “Oliver Twist”. It was and still is a monster hit across the world.

Before the rise of Mo’hits, D’Banj released his first set of songs “Kiss Me Again” ft. Ruggedman, “One More Time” and “Gba Si Be” ft. Abounce on OJB’s Silver Tones’ imprint.

The advent of Mo’hits and the growth of the D’Banj brand only gave ‘collabo access’ to label mates and close friends like Ikechukwu (Whine Am Well), Kas (Fimile Remix) and Banky W (Lagos Party Remix). The dynasty was very rigid in collaboration-related matters. We weren’t sure if it was Don Jazzy’s plot to protect D’Banj’s creative weakness or the latter’s personal choice. However, the release of “Mr. Endowed Remix” with Snoop Dogg in 2010 and the Kanye West-Good Music merger confirmed that D’Banj was not about the local league. He had a bigger dream.

Going over the changes that has transpired after Mo’hits’ breakup will be over-flogging the issue. A significant change on D’Banj’s side is his sudden presence on other artiste’s songs. The first was “Bad Pass (Tony Montana)” by Naeto C, followed by Iyanya’s “Kukere Remix”. The fact that these songs were already solo hits made his input less relevant especially at a time when fans and the industry at large expect more. Fally Ipupa was featured on “We The Best”, off D’Banj’s DKM Album, but the arrangement made it sound like D’Banj was the one featured.

So D’Banj is also cutting in on Olamide’s recent buzz and they have a song that will be released any time soon. I reckon this is a strategy of some sort to either sustain relevance or a random attempt to cop another hit outside Don Jazzy’s works.

The last Nation’s Cup, placed him on the Continent’s spotlight again but instead of unveiling a new song on that platform, he continues with the Don Jazzy produced “Oliver Twist”. In my opinion, the “Scape Goat Remix” with Kanye West is a waste of an opportunity. Additions like that are done when you are just paying (one off) for the guy to voice a verse or two on your already made song, but when you are a signed artiste on Good Music (especially when it’s a paid merger), creative time should be spent on a song for the sake of the fans and listening community.

Maybe it’s too early to expect much from D’Banj but I am worried for him already. This is a man who has three flawless albums and countless hit songs on his belt. Everything he touched in the past was gold and if one artiste was literally way ahead of his time, it was D’Banj. He is the only artiste who would drop his Glo Ambassadorship due to complications from renewal talks and fee. Even at that, the guy was not blabbing when he said “I make 10 million in a week…” on “Gbono Feli Feli” (2008). He is still one of the most awarded artistes of the last decade. I mean, if he drops the music today, his achievement may not be surpassed in years to come.

The mass influx of sounds and artistes in Nigeria today is enough to distract the most loyal of fans. Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie already has a lot of fans in Nigeria; same way new artistes are sprawling up every day to have a share of the cake.

I don’t how long we will have to wait for D’Banj but if the collaborations are intentional and strategic to fuel his relevance – let’s file! Don’t touch it!

    @Williams my same thought. I dont know how some1 that isn't jobless will write about someone that can feed him 20 times over!! Dammmn people are really funny! Mr Silas your the one tryna get relevant here because no body knows you at al. It's banj we know and we love him 100per sick man didn't add that he sang top of the world which was the same AFCON u claimed put him on the continent! Plea how many minutes was Oliver twits played can you compare it to the minutes that Dbanj performed top of the world which people didn't know about. Please and please let people think before they joblessness type shit can call it article. Dbanj going down stupid thing did you read it any were that Dbanj can't eat or afford his bills. You are there analazyizing somebody else's life that has got a name , brand and money. I think you need a job I can offer you one at leat people get paid by just typing out rubbish this days. That's my own opinion leave Dbanj alone stop being the devil causing fights between DbRecords and Mavin tomorrow now somebody will want to support db and will write shit about Mavin and they will say they are doing themselves . Nigerians need to refocus I cnt believe a full bodied man got up to write this nonsense it's really a same without your facts being right. So it's a crime for Dbanj to feature Olamide in his album or song dumb fellas if you check well it's even Olamide prouding and happy collaborating with Dbanj cos he knows his worth am done here. Linda pls post my comment for this mr Silas man. Thanks

    The only thing am gonna say is dat d way our naija artist are tryna go international is not the way @ all... Whether we like it or not femi kuti and Seun Kuti, nneka and asa are more popular and famous in d international scene than Dbanj... Let dem tell u how they are doing it.

    I guess we are all entitled to our own opinion and without putting any blame on the writer. I believe he contradicted himself when he said ''Maybe it’s too early to expect much from D’Banj''
    Dbanj is a man who just recently broke up with his business partner and is starting afresh. the emotional weakness alone cld affect his individual personalty and its going to take awhile or him to gain his ground again. He is an entertainer and i see nothing wrong in him making songs with other artiste. The only constant thing in life is change and as you and i already know that the music industry is changing every now and then, you cant help but have duets with artistes. Dbanj murdered bad pass remix and i can categorically say dbanj made me recognize the song because i wasnt a fan of the original song. Kukere remix is a hit, once i listen to dbanjs starting.. i end the rest of the song because dbanj did justice as well. Leave the poor boy alone.However, i commend you for the write up, its a wake up call for him to STOP SLEEPING ON A BICYCLE... he is a living legend and still the best in Nigeria after 2baba nd psqaure. cheers.

    @James Silas...even though your name sounds all BIBLEISH, i beg stop writing crap...the fact that somethings may not turn out as you expect doesn't mean everything about that thing is wrong or not working. there could be more to what you are observing than you are reporting. even though your laid down matters are facts, it doesn't change the fact that things change.

    i agree that the possibility of Dbanj's decision being a mistake is high, but please, stop telling us what we already know and at least love your brother now even as you once did.

    the fact that you THINK DBanj did something wrong doesn't make it wrong. so put a quick zip lock on your keyboard and give it a rest...No be only you sabi write. *TONGUE OUT*

    Its no secret that the nigga D'banj is at his Nadir, 'was only a matter of time before some random dude cashed in on it. The question is can he get back up, I'ld say 'hell yea' he either swallows his pride and goes back to the partnership that worked for him (which I don't recommend) or get an even better sound engineer who understands the Nigerian market, . I'm a music critic and I don't think he's done,he's just in a transitional phase

You don't always have to insult people its an opinion whoever he is has a right to voice what he thinks, we can argue like adults. Linda its high time you don't allow such comments on this blog.

    This is a media war and it is clear James Silas has been paid to do this dirty job. Since they broke up, DBanj has recorded more success in terms of appearances and performances than Don Jazzy and any of his artistes. This is obvious. The question is this...is Olamide so bad that DBanj cannot associate with him? Or his kind of music not acceptable or low in quality to the extent that it erodes DBanj's brand? Silas is a jobless man and he's just out to knock DBanj's hustle. Its so unfortunate that the world is filled with negative people everywhere you go who are just bent on destroying u or make ur efforts look like nothing. Silas should get this, DBanj and Don Jazzy no longer do business. DBanj has a strategy to stay relevant and also run his business. It may be different from Mohits' but that doesnt make it wrong. I also think that strategy is working.

    Its true. But, why is everybody focusing on D'banj? Don Jazzy isn't doing any better without him either. Mavin isn't as 1/10000 relevant as Mo' Hits was. So, the 2 obviously have a symbiotic relationship more than people can understand. They should kiss & make up jare. They don't have to be under the same label. Just making great hits together

    I dont get why people think this is hating.Can't you separate facts from emotions?This makes a lot of sense and it's not about hating on his money.Yes Dbanj is still rich and would most likely have more money than most of us. But since leaving Mo Hits, what major hit has he had?Is he still not flogging Oliver Twist? Dbanj needs to up his game and come out with banging tracks!His merger with Kanye west has not done anything for him musically.The only thing this GoodMusic collaboration has done is get him invites to parties and fashion shows. There are so many artiste on Good Music that are struggling and waiting for Kanye West's midas touch.I am sure Dbanj is smart sa. He should make the most of his time in Hollywood to network and meet dope ass producers!The sky is his limit.!

    For real I see no sense abt dis,the writer is anti_dbanj. To stat wit dbanj n donjazzy issue, can u tell me who is makin bigger progress among d two?hv u alll listend to dkm album n compare it to marvin compaliantion album? Then u can come up wit sumtin like dis, u also talkd abt collabo, u said some of dos songs he feature on was a hit before he jumped on them n I will tell No. Tony montana was just dere n we all can atest to d fact dat d remix was number one on every chat all over d nation is d best interm od sound n content. As for kukere, he also propell dat song to a greater height. He has a contract wit good music aftr donj told him to scatter mohit for wat is best knw to 2 of dem. N he is doin just fine wit DB records and if u re in goodmusic u nid to learn n b very patience cus even pushy T is abt to drop his first album n he has bn dere before dbanj, d scapegoat fix)was on number one on top 100 hiphop n mixtape in yankee n no naija song even d felas, nneka n asa was neva dere. Pls kindly gv dis hard workin man a break. If u are paid to write dis kindly refund back d money cus it won't do u any gud. Dbanj has paid his dues n he need to b respected. U also talkd abt dbanj is goin down low, I will tell u dat olamide is d hottest rapper nau in naija , n d album is calld. D kings men, so bring togthr wit some of his dogs n label mate won't b a crime. As for d endorsement he has more than enuf, face of ndanitv, malibu drink in yanke etc so try do ur finding, he still has bigger n better show. Watch out thru out june he is goin on world wide tour, dbanj has a contract wit goodmusic n donjazzy does too n when it come to entertainment n dis music bizness u gv it to dbanj he is number 1. Look at koko concert n u will respect him when it come to dos who he command, is he still d first individual to bring like 5 foreign act to perform one nite in naija u need to see crowd n watch out again and watchout for dbrecords concert in june then u can talk again, almost 5yrs no album n he is still dat relevant pls, try n b objective.he was d first dat start makin producer relevant in naija not even in yankee. I submit ma case. Bt u no nuthing abt him and write today's date down. Dbanj can't go down. He is blesss n who can bringdown whom God has bless?

    This is my first comment in this site, this writer sounds one sided. However I think d reality is that, these guys need each other. Somebody like D'banj is d right Artist that can brings d best out of Don Jazz expertize and somebody like Don Jazzy is d right producer that can bring d best out of D'banj as well. So I think they both compliment each other.The best of their efforts so far was Oliver twist. After this, no major big hits from both to date. I think Don Jazz knows exactly d type of music that suit D'banj. And D'Banj knows exactly how to deliver that. U can't rule out one from other. They both needed themselves. I hope they realise this in time and settle their differences because D whole world is waiting for their music. And I hope somebody intervene for them to see reasons to come together.Their success and continuous success is a Nigeria pride and d pride of African. I wish them best of lucks.

    BIGGEST mistake d'banj ever made! And the most annoying part is him constantly trying hard as hell to throw kanye in our faces like we give a f*ck! Africans may be fascinated by the western culture, but at the end of the day, we appreciate our own music morethan anything because we can relate to them better.

    D'banj needs to stop with his desperate attempts to look relevant by inviting all these artists to naija and begging kanye for appearances on his songs! Its adding more sand to the garri, and we aint all fools...we can see thru the bullshit.

    IDJA seems like a cool ass dude; someone who will be open to a reconciliation. U both were meant for each other...go back and reunite. Nigerians are taking this personal o. Una must reunite by fire by force for ur hustle to profit again.lmao! But seriously, i just don't get how Dbanj will give up his title of King in Africa to go to the west where he is constantly overshadowed! Why???

    Firstly, I think the writer is right as we expect more from Dbanj after that move.He needs to prove his move was properly thought about. Living the big life is part of entertainment and half the time is an act. He should step up his game. As for those attacking the guy who wrote this, he has done nothing wrong. People pick up all sorts of hobbies daily and if he decides to write on what he sees, so be it, read it or leave it!

All the songs he has been making for Tiwa, D'prince and the rest of the Mavin crew, none has caught the attention of Nigeria Audience and indeed the world like thOSE of D'banj. So it will be unfair to criticize D'banj with out adding Don Jazzy to the mix. If not for the way D'banj sang praises about Don Jazzy, sincerely people wont even know who he was. Which of the members of the Mavin crew praises Don Jazzy for his work like D'banj WAS DOING? They both need or are missing each others. PERIOD!!!!!

Hell no go ask D Don I think he knows better. Dbanj is doing better now he is a real business man he still get some dollars in a week than the whole Mavin crew can get in a year. Silas let go D Don has let gone. The dude featured a Nigerian in Olamide who is rising faster than any other rapper and you call that a go low? He featured Kayne and other foreign artists you call that ego! He performed at Nations cup you said he dint pick up the advantage...you are just frustrated and Dbanj is an example of Nigeria Music Icon raking millions buck from his partnerships I would love to see them back though they both will take over African Music but dude if that's aint happening we should let go. Tell me what has D don being doing all these years of their separation? I av once seen this guy with 2 members of American senate in rhode island. Does that mean anything to you politically?

Tu face broke up with is group and he made it, why do you think D'banj wont do better. For heavens sake, must they remain partners for life, the relationship wast working and they had to split, what's the biggy in that. It doesn't matter what song he gets to produce and when, what matters should be is happiness in what he does and if his partnership wasn't making him happy...then the best thing was split.

    no one says dbanj isnt making and enjoying money. but back to the issue he pointed out. dbanj hasnt made any song that is better than even one song made when he was with IDJA. so he should have a rethink.its not bad for two artists to split up but its not also an abomination for them to reunite, its happened many times,50cents left shady/aftermth in the heat of his success and when he wasnt moving again THOUGH HE STILL HAD MILLIONS as nigerian grade success he went back to eminem n doctor infact the name of d preceding album was 'before i self destruct' very deep album title, and alot of artists have done that. so my advice to dbanj is that he goes back and reunites with IDJA, am not idolizing IDJA but he should go back n get him to produce his tracks.if he does that now they'll make double more money that they hav ever made, thats for all you who say he is enjoying his money...

    No one has to stay in one spot for life. Most of the D Banj haters already have their minds made up that D'Banj would never produce anything good again, so they come to conclusion before even listening. Most Nigerians are so myopic in their thinking.

    Mr long note silas may be jobless but I guess he hit a nerve in you dat made u write such long note.Dbanj has lost his place.If he likes let him do a colabo with the whole world musicians his beats can never be the same without Don jazzy.The truth is bitter bro.He is no longer the Dbanj we all love and admire.Forget sentiments Dbanj is fading away real fast..

    Nigerians are so biased its upsetting. this article clearly has lots of facts and if you actually pay attention you can tell the guy isn't biased and was probably once a huge fan of dbanji (if he still isn't). the guy hailed dbanji that even if he left the music industry he will still be one of the best

    I do not think DBanj is doing any better. He is trying to employ the services of all the best producers and feature and get featured in tracks. The truth remains, who is Dbanj musically in terms of content and talent, the answer seems to be nobody. It is undoubted that Don Jazzy made him from 'hair to toe'. He does not have voice and has 'no musical style' except that placed on him by the natural skills of the Great Don Jazzy who is an acclaimed beat mogul and respected by all in that wise.

    I do not think he will have a sustaining future musically?

    Good Songs are very hard to come by especially when you are not around familiar people to do your beats as usual. I suggest we shouldn't just start criticizing him just yet. Give him time. He has to find his feet again with no Don jazzy on the beats

    Lets be realistic here, D banj was the greedy and self beef one, he saw Kanye and leaped for joy, forgetting how he started, i just think karma is working on him, as for me D banj is not a musician, i rep good music but his case its rubbish, am still waiting for people to buy his album for #4000, he has not started i just give him 2 more years, him go join Black face, heheheheeh

    For all DON J HATERS - He produced

And who told em haterz dat he cannot do well without Don J, infact we don't know what caused the breakup, let us wish em well and stop trying to bring people down, karma is still a bitch

    I think, you guys should leave dbanj alone.. You complain about his songs actually many us still love his works.. What most you are missing is that he lost interest in music after slip problems with don jazzy.. He is more of a business man now than an entertainer.. He is more about the money rather than the passion.. And after 3 hit albums, what more do u want? Please let him rest..I appreciate good music whether from produced by don jazzy or not

    some ppl don't understand what is called success in d Nter10ment idustry..D'banj 4 me is doing fine since the breakup...Take a look at it,he is going 4 shows,he was the one that performed at this years ACN finals.....if that's even the only show he does for the whole year,that okay for him...you don't necessarily have to make hit song for you to be relevant or successful...since 2010,d'banj has be selling more of his personality than music..it gets to a stage where that happens..Jay Z dont have to make hits songs,but we all talk about him...that simply means music industry here is taking a good shape..The fact that we are even talking about him on here is another good thing for him...i can start naming names of those that there hits ruled Nigeria,but are no where to be found today...by 2014,its gonna be exact 10yrs he came into Nigerian music industry..and he has never been out of d game throughout dat 10yrs..can u name other musicians who has done that 4 10yrs straight up apart from 2baba and prabably psquare...we should give kudos to the guy..he is reping 9ja well and the whole of Africa..

    Pure hatred on display here. What has don jazzy done after the separation? Don jazzy must hav realised how hard to run a label now without dbanj. Marvin are stil struggling musically and commercially much more than dbanj. Don jazzy can never produce another artist like dbanj.

     
  • At 4 May 2013 at 09:05 , Anonymous Anonymous said...

    This article has been cooked to debar DB fans from gracing his upcoming concerts,its an effort to make dbanj look less impt so as not to have a gud turn out on said date! Someone is jittery somewhere, I am sure Don jazzy didn't send the writer a mssg to do this on his behalf, bcos fact holds dat the Mohits family has performed worst so far! Is it Dr sid,Tiwa or don j himself...its the ethnic bigotry in the writer that spued the nonsense, come off it, u won't expect an international star to produce album every damn year
    Pls,let this get into ur head! Olamide(baddo) is nt a small star, samething that yoke MJ and akon together is still d spirit. Get a life!
    Linda, I expect another trash on Omosexy, she is next in line....2015 wud tell!

    In terms of popularity/ acceptance not content. many tracks in unstoppable international edition, are obviously better dan african queen. I bliv dbanj is talented too but we need to open our minds and accept him. Lets Forget his bragging days. He is truly an entertainer. Imagine all this mad beat don j did for dprince on his album. If dbanj flow on it wiyh his entertaining charisma. Na million of dollars for rake in... na dem know jare make I mind my own biz. Linda I am addicted to ur blog. Ur jazz is working on me

    your point being......? me thinks its too early to draw conclusions, collabos seem to be the in thing these days....no gain saying that D'Banj is a bigger brand than Olamide any day any time...at least for now, I mean which of the two has bigger equity....Olamide is an emerging brand no doubt, but insinuation that D'Banj collaborating with Olamide is seeking relevance in the scheme of things......are you kidding? such insinuations, innuendos that Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo will seek relevance by doing a collabo with "would-be" artistes ( Olamide forgive me for referring to you as a "would-be" you are one of my favorite artistes, I swear) is not justified by any means

    They gave d two of dem an assignment to produce theme song for AFCON, did anyone hear donjazzy version at all, pls compare it wit 'top of the world' linda and her people just wanted to pull dbanj down at all cost.
    I wonder what happens to the voice record that Davido gave the world where Dr.Sid said dbanj stars is rising too high they shud let him go( read biblical joseph: let's kill him and see what wud become of his dream). So, no hater wants to see mohit from dat angle,they just want to PHD dbanj at all cost.But the gift of God in a man wud make a way for him.

    Beautiful and very Honest write-up, who can grow without constructive criticism....DBanj owes it to his fans that "HE SINGS FOR" and himself as a musician to always do better....until its time to retire.
    So many young people look up him, now are they suppose to think life is easy and their decisions don't count?
    That "anonymous" contributor should take a chill pill...
