Don Jazzy and D'Banj
The name Don Jazzy today surely commands some respect in the Nigerian
showbiz world. A decade ago, when such name is mentioned, questions
would arise about who and what does the name mean.
tiny tear in a cloth that was never quickly stitched, Don Jazzy expanded
and took many by storm in the entertainment industry to the extent that
there is nothing anyone can do about him anymore. To some industry
icons he used to see as 'big thing' in the game, this multiple
award-winning producer has surpassed them.
Not wanting the
Yoruba proverbial saying that 'the river that forgets its source would
get dried up', Don Jazzy went online to give honour to those due,
especially those who have influenced his booming career.
After paying his first respect to 2Face, he stated about JJC when he posted, "Kudos
to JJC for without him, I would still be doing 'tungba' (local) music.
[I am] not saying that it (tungba music) is not good. But I found out I
was better doing something else."
Turning to D'Banj, Don Jazzy has this to say, "KUDOS
to my bro, D'Banj for without him, my production skills I gathered from
JJC might have been a waste. Dude made me Don Jazzy."
He went ahead to honour Wande Coal, D'Prince and others including his Federal Government College, Ijanikin, Lagos pals.
