'Kanye had over 100 producers & I wasn't priority' Don Jazzy on why he returned home

What the ace music producer told City People magazine when asked about his deal with Kanye's label, G.O.O.D Music, where he's signed as a producer
Don Jazzy:
I am still signed to G.O.O.D Music, but in order for me to be able to concentrate on building the artistes that we have here, I wouldn't be able to give my 100% in the work I have to do in NY. In New York, the music and orientation is different. I can sit down there and say I'm trying to make an album for Kanye West, and it takes me longer because the level of music there is different from the one here. Kanye West has like 100 producers lined up at his beck and call, and it is not like I am priority. So I'll be spending a lot of money staying in the States when I can return home and be making money as well as grooming more artistes. And it's very easy these days. I can work here and once I'm done, and feel it's something that would suit Kanye West, I'll just email it to them, and if they want to use it, they'll use it and if they don't, they will tell you to try again.

Blackout @Abuja Airport grounds flights, leaves passengers stranded

Runway lights at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja went off yesterday evening stalling the landing and taking off of planes. All the international planes that were meant to land at the airport in Abuja yesterday were re-routed to Lagos and Port Harcourt. Lufthansa, British Airways, and Air France flights had to land in Lagos where passengers where offered accommodation, while an Arik Flight coming from Port Harcourt was forced to return to PH.

This is the third time this year that blackouts will be recorded at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, and they are yet to find a permanent solution to it. I think the aviation industry needs a total overhauling; starting with the resignation of the minister in charge of the sector!
