The hot thing on social media right now is the beef between Olamide of YBNL and Don Jazzy of SMD over the Headies Next Rated Award Categories.
In the spirit of this ‘battle’, we take a look at the artistes which the actions of Don jazzy have seriously damaged their careers.
Top on the list is Ikechukwu, when he had misunderstanding with the now Mavin boss that caused him a album deal after his hit song, Now is the time feat. Don Jazzy himself. According to Vanguard publication on October 21, 2011 “we had a few misunderstanding along the line and called off the album deal”. Baba provoke, who dare the Don, those abs aren’t nothing.
Duncan Mighty the king of South, Port-Harcourt first son, is another notable artist that the Mavin boss refused to sign because he jumpstart, announced the supposed deal before the boss himself, such action is punishable under the Don’s rules. Baba J tear agreement paper immediately.
He further explained that “Because if it’s Mo’hits Records, everybody gets excited. We haven’t signed any deal and he went ahead to tell people that he’s been signed to Mo’Hits. I was in America when I read on the internet that Duncan Mighty has been signed to Mo’Hits Records”.
In Mavin, people don’t get excited until the boss says so. I mean how could Duncan Mighty, he is dealing with Don Jazzy.
Terry G situation was a perfect example of over excitement when he announced a deal before the boss, Don don’t spare such act. Baba J cancel deal straight, even mentioned it in an interview. Untouchable Don Jazzy I salute.
Here is a link to Don Jazzy interview with Vanguard in 2011
The biggest of them all is Dbanj, Eja Nla but not when the boss, Don Jazzy felt his partner not a signed artist oh was out shining him, a producer. Even though Dbanj was the one that elevated him to the Don status he now enjoy. He pulled the plug on him when he least expected, eja nla run from pillar to post, hehe, Don don’t renege or bargain, not even refund, every sales is final. The rest is history as we all know how Dbanj is now fighting for his career, let’s hope he wins this fight.
Wande Coal is another amazing talent that crossed the boss path, a seemly smart artist that the boss thought he was a kid and could easily be put to rest with few tweets but mehn that guy talent is so huge that is light won’t go off, though he is still fighting his own battle with his career after the boss called him out on twitter.
Olamide, Not ruined but fresh
The hottest of the hoties, Olamide, Baddo, Eyan Mayweather awon ti 50 cent sneh and Don Jazzy issue started when Olamide felt insulted when one of his artists, Lil Kesh, nominated for Headies next rated award failed to win but Don Jazzy up coming art, Reekado Bankz was awarded. Action Olamide deem fit to address (without mentioning Don baba) but Don won’t have non of those diplomatic nonsense, grab the mic called out Olamide on stage to come and take the car meant for the winner. Baba reiterated how big he is in case that street boy called Olamide has forgotten his place. Baba J said he can afford to buy another car for his artist. Hehe, that street boy called Olamide has been jumping up and down on twitter since then, insisting he is no Dbanj.
We are yet to see how this will play out but in case you are Olamide fan, go on your knees now and start praying.
