Says D’Banj is a bad seed he fed and sheltered

D’Banj, in a recent interview on the ongoing Mohits saga, said Don Jazzy was “cheated by JJC, and I was present. I swore never to cheat him”. 

In a response, JJC debunked allegations made by D’Banj and said: “I developed Big Brovas, which got signed to SONY, and they blew up. I then started JJC, the 419 squad-which was a squad of people speaking and rapping in yoruba. Along the way, MP brought a guy called D’banj to my house and D’banj came as a normal up and coming artiste would normally do; “Baba please your name is big, please help me.”

He went further, “Yeah and of course, like the mugu, mumu button activated JJC, I introduced him to my band. What can you do, he sang. I said that is not really good, the harmonica that you play is really good let’s work on that one and develop your style. Along the way, another guy called Kas brought Don Jazzy to my house and Don Jazzy at that time was playing for Solek as a piano player and they both started working with me.

“I took all of them to WOMAD, which is the biggest African world stage they could be. We were performing in every single show that there was possible. Anything that was happening, JJC and 419 was doing it, we were at the top of the game and a lot of people can actually testify to that.”

JJC also claimed to have taught Don Jazzy how to produce, and confirmed that Don Jazzy and Wande Coal write songs for D’Banj.

“I used to pay him a thousand pounds every month in 2004, which was almost N250,000, for being a trainee. Now I come back to Nigeria to shoot a video, and I see Don Jazzy and D’Banj. Don Jazzy was even talking to me, D’banj was carrying himself like some superstar. Yes, he has made something of himself and salute to the music that Don Jazzy made because I know from ‘Mobolowowon’ to all the way, na me and Don Jazzy write am. Now the rest of the songs that followed, I am sure Don Jazzy wrote it. If na lie let me hear, even Wande Coal don tell me say na Don Jazzy and him dey work for the records,” JJC said.

“Now you are Mr D’Banj koko koko, you think you are God. What did you call yourself? Jesus of Nigerian music? I paid them to learn how to become better themselves, so that you can become someone big and then for you to turn around and be slandering my name? You have the mouth to say it, after you don eat my food, sleep in my bed. I even give you girl, you are the one that was the bad seed.”

Meanwhile Don Jazzy also dismissed the alleged financial claims by D’Banj on houses and cars, adding that he would not be dragged into making allegations and counter-allegations. 

“Personally my advice to fans is to concentrate on good music from Mo’Hits and well even from D’Banj himself. Music is what we were made to create and not controversies.”
