FINALLY REVEALED! Why D Banj and Don Jazzy Actually split?

It all began in the vibrant city of Lagos, Nigeria, where two talented individuals, D’banj and Don Jazzy, crossed paths and embarked on a journey that would shape the Nigerian music industry.

Their story is one of friendship, creativity, and determination.

D’banj, known for his energetic stage presence and unique style, met the exceptionally talented music producer, Don Jazzy, in the early 2000s.

Both driven by their passion for music, they quickly recognized each other’s potential and decided to join forces.

The Birth of Mo’Hits Records

With their shared vision and complementary skills, D’banj and Don Jazzy founded Mo’Hits Records in 2004. This record label would soon become a game-changer in the Nigerian music industry, embracing a fusion of Afrobeat, highlife, and contemporary sounds.

Their debut album, ‘No Long Thing,’ released in 2005, was an instant success and showcased their dynamic synergy. From infectious tracks like ‘Tongolo’ to the catchy ‘Mobolowowon,’ the album cemented their status as trailblazers.

The Global Breakthrough: Oliver Twist and Beyond

However, it was their 2012 hit single, ‘Oliver Twist,’ that propelled D’banj and Don Jazzy to international stardom. The song became an anthem, not only in Nigeria but across the globe, garnering millions of views on YouTube and topping charts in several countries.

Following their monumental success, D’banj and Don Jazzy caught the attention of international artists such as Kanye West, who signed D’banj to his label, GOOD Music.

This collaboration opened doors for both artists, leading to exciting collaborations with renowned musicians worldwide.

The Cracks Begin to Show

Despite their extraordinary achievements together, D’banj and Don Jazzy decided to take different paths in 2012.

Amidst their meteoric rise, tensions began to surface within the Mo’ Hits Records camp. Reports of disagreements over creative direction and financial matters started circulating, casting a shadow over the once-unbreakable bond between D’Banj and Don Jazzy.

While the precise reasons for their split may remain locked away in the confines of their personal experiences, it is evident that the pressures of fame and conflicting visions played a significant role.

However, it is essential to understand that this split was not a failure but rather a catalyst for growth and new beginnings.

D’banj continued to release chart-topping hits and expand his brand globally, while Don Jazzy went on to establish Mavin Records, another successful record label that has produced some of Nigeria’s biggest music stars.

This decision marked the end of Mo’Hits Records, leaving fans heartbroken but excited for what the future held for both artists.

The Legacy Lives On: Reunion and Collaborations

In 2020, D’banj and Don Jazzy surprised fans by announcing their reunion on social media. The news sent shockwaves through the music industry, igniting rumors of potential collaborations and a revival of their unmatched synergy.

While the details of their reunion are yet to be unveiled, fans are eagerly awaiting their highly anticipated projects.

With their undeniable talent and unwavering passion for music, it’s safe to say that D’banj and Don Jazzy will continue to make waves and leave an indelible mark on the Nigerian music scene.
