Dbanj & Don Jazzy Betrayed Me – JJC


Interesting turn of events as JJC apparently speaks to City People about his experience Dbanj & Don Jazzy and some history about their past.

It’s just life. Some people forget how everything started and some people remember, I would say that I was really the person that built the foundation for everybody to become what they are today and I would expect that they would remember and pay me that regard but they don’t.

The experience with Don Jazzy, D’Banj and other ex 419 Squad members was heartbreaking, because it was personal and it became something that affected me emotionally, hence the reason I left music for four years and nobody saw or heard from me. I didn’t record or do anything musically. I slowed myself down.

Don Jazzy was a keyboard player and Mr. Solek and Kas brought him to me and said that he really liked my music. At that time I was already JJC and I had songs like kilonsele on air play already and had won a couple of awards, I was strong in the game. I trained Don Jazzy on how to become a producer and he lived in my house for about a year and I showed him how to produce, trained him on how to perform and put things together.

And D’Banj , from the branding to how to act like Fela, I did it for him. His song, mobolowon won, was written by me, Raggaremi and MP. Even All The Way was written in Lagos here. I was very instrumental in packaging Don Jazzy and D’banj.
I was supposed to release D’Banj’s first album on my label, Backbone Music, but by the time we all came back to Nigeria in 2004, everyone started going their own ways when it was time to sign the 50/50 contract. They all decided not to sign. If I give you a contract and you refuse to sign, there is little or nothing I can do about it.

Do I feel betrayed by them? I don’t believe in regrets, because I believe every single thing in life make you who you are. The experience has made me a better business man. Now before I start anything with any artiste, they sign a contract or an agreement, so that we don’t have any issues in future.

  1. I couldn’t agree more with the first comment! Like REALLY who does this? After how many years you go city people for that matter! This is LOW! Lowest of the Low… Lost all respect for JJC as I read each line.

  2. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha cry cry baby. you made dem you made dem oya make yourself into a star na. i used to listen to jjc's songs before. but now going to throw all his crap away. Because the boys re now making nigerians proud you re now here making stupid noise. shameeeeeeee

  3. That’s the truth its not about bad belle or something he’s only trying to warn us that don’t do friendship when it comes to business.. Business is business..

  4. This JJC guy is just beefing jare. Why didnt you say all this one since. It's now that they're global that the thing is paining you. Park well jare

  5. The way some of you defend slimy betraying punks shows the kind of skum you actually are. I bet it's the kind of thing you can do your fellow human and then expect that he/she take it and not say anything?
    According to you, it's life, you help me, I throw you away like a piece of rag when I am done, now shut up about it. isn't it so? Selfish self-serving nonsense.

  6. U can train dem but where are u when dis guys started their own things,is it because they are now big that make u only talk about dem.they are not d one with u then,y dont u talk about kween,smokey and Mp too.Michael jackson was trained by people too,so 4get about dis trash.

  7. am poor boy that have be into music but i can fine no one to help ple take me as one of boy that i can follow up i no that trun mo hit god we make my life in to shine amen

  8. We dont know abt u bt mo-hit are handsome.straight of the corner of apple and eagle.if u try 2 beef them,i wil tak u to d bottle,battle and bettles wil eat u.i smell smoke(sniff) is dat ur d***k?so go play wit ur wif kids.brodaly advice

  9. I feel his pain and no matter what you think, he deserves credit and accolades. Picture a scenario early this millenium where Don J goes to meet Kennys that he would be a mega success, they wouldn’t have signed him. It’s not easy to pick a stone, wash it, then when you look away it turns into a diamond and complains that your hands are too dirty to touch it. The truth is that grooming an artist from the scratch is not beans. Even if na beans, hole plenty inside. I manage a real talented artist and I know the stress. But if I look the other way and he blows without me, it just shows that he could have done without me initially. I won’t sweat it. They say ‘a person has only half of what he has’. Hence if you can do it once, you can do it again. It might even be that JJC was hindering their progress, who knows. The bottom line is that as a sharp guy and not a jjc, you should not lament this much. Put your skirt down and put your back into in. Don j & Dbanj are the people who got themselves to where they are now. They would have don(e) jazzy either way. Word to the wise,(from Common) “I know to grow, a ni99a has to learn to let go” especially if you don’t have the grip(not physically only). Before my battery die make I go rub one out with dirty pics. Piss!…
