It appears that D’banj and Don Jazzy are moving past their recent ‘ugly’ fight and badly damaged relationship, following the former’s congratulatory message to his ex-boss on his (Don Jazzy) new record label.
In a tweet on Monday, former partner in the Mo’hits squad, D’banj, sent a congratulatory message to his former partner Michael Collins, popularly known as Don Jazzy on the launch of his new record label “Congrats to my brother and the best producer in Africa Don jazzy on the launch of his new Record Label, MAVIN RECORDS. Wish u all the best.” – Dbanj.
In return Don Jazzy replied “Thanks Bro. God Bless you“, and also added “After Solar Plexus Tomorrow. Tweeps next stop is #Olivertwist UK Release May 14th. Your support is needed always. RepNaija, RepAfrica. Oshee” Solar Plexus is set to be released today May 8th. So far, the tweet has generated a lot of comments from fans, most of which rally around the fact that, D’banj is trying to salvage the badly damaged relationship between him and his ex-boss. You will recall that D’Banj and Don Jazzy owned the Mo Hits record label but few months back, both men split ways in what many regard as, perhaps, the worst split in Nigerian music industry.
It all started when Don Jazzy moved out of the mansion both stars shared for years in Lekki peninsula, Lagos, apparently frustrated with D’banj’s “lifestyle, tantrums and unmanageable ego” while D’banj backed out because he also felt Don Jazzy is spending more time advancing the careers of other artistes in the label and was not “concentrating enough” on D’banj’s forth coming album which was due for release some time this year. The straw that broke the camel’s back was an interview remarks allegedly made by D’Banj to US based Ebony magazine, in which he claimed ownership to Mo Hits, referring to Don Jazzy as “my artiste.”
Both stars followed their split with insults hauled at each other, driven by D’Banj who later claimed his Twitter and Facebook pages were hacked and used for the malicious insults.
On monday, however, both artiste appeared to be mending their fences as D’Banj tweeted Don Jazzy, congratulating him for new record label, Mavin Records which is set for launch.
