Ok so from Don Jazzy‘s tweets today after two weeks of silence on Twitter which is very unusual for the top producer, it looks like its officially over between D’Banj and Don Jazzy. Nobody seems to have solid reasons for the break-up but it stems deeply from money issues regarding the G.O.OD. Music deal with Kanye West and other business misunderstandings. We will give you a full list of all what we’ve heard so far from very reliable sources.
- The recent G.O.O.D. Music deal seems to favor Don Jazzy more than D’Banj, as Kanye fell in love with Don Jazzy’s work after listening to D’Prince’s Give It To Me at the airport in Dubai where he first met D’Banj, who now believes he’s the reason the whole Kanye relationship started.
- D’Banj wants Don Jazzy to complete his album before that of Wande Coal, which Don Jazzy seems to have had interest in completing lately. He claims he’s the highest paid member of the label and should be attended to first. D’Banj doesn’t seem to be pleased by the fact that Don Jazzy released 3 new Wande Coal singles recently when his last single was Oliver Twist and we are still waiting on his album.
- D’Banj and Don Jazzy have some misunderstandings related to some recent oil deals. They acquired some oil licenses a while ago with the help of the popular jeweler Chris Aire and Minister of Petroleum Diezani Alison-Madueke.
- Their different stances on the Fuel Subsidy issue. The duo were strongly behind President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan during the election period until the fuel subsidy protests when Don Jazzy came out to say he regrets voting for GEJ. This was most likely not D’Banj’s opinion.
- D’Banj believes Don Jazzy is not hustling hard enough on their new international mission as the Don is a very indoor guy who hits the studio, plays video games and entertains women every now and then. D’Banj on the other hand seems to have sold his soul and is ready to do whatever it takes to meet whoever will help him achieve world domination. D’Banj has taken his P.A. known as Chuchu along with him on these missions as he globe trots and networks with music industry heavyweights.
- Bankuli became close to D’Banj a few years ago and has taken over as his manager from Sunday Areh who has managed the entire Mo’hits crew since the start. Don Jazzy definitely disagrees with this development and has held on to Sunday Areh who still manages the rest of the crew. Maybe Bankuli fits into D’Banj’s international plans more than Sunday Areh.
It’s all a big shame though to see the biggest record label in Africa fall apart over greed and personal ambition, left to me I think D’Banj should chill and reconsider the teamwork that brought them this far. I wonder what Kanye feels about all this.

So what’s next for Mo’hits? I just heard a joke that says Wande Coal is going back to Mushin, Dr Sid is getting a job at LUTH, and D’Prince is back writing JAMB. LWKMD. But yeah, we don’t know whats next but it seems the only person leaving the camp is D’Banj and everyone else is staying. We don’t know if the name Mo’Hits will change, if either one of the camps will hold on to the name or if this is complete quits. Can D’Banj find another producer to bring out his talent? I think we know even if I get on a Don Jazzy beat it will be a hit but will Don Jazzy miss D’Banj’s touch?
