The most notable appearance at Davido’s end of 2017 30 Billion World Tour Lagos Finale was the reunion of Mo’Hits Crew for a power-packed performance after the group separated some years back and went their separate ways.
Home to Wande Coal, Dr SID, D’Prince and K-Switch while it existed as a record label, Mo’Hits Records, established in 2004, was owned by D’banj and Don Jazzy. While Don Jazzy was the CEO/President of the label, D’banj was the Co-Owner.
D’banj and Don Jazzy as a pair dominated the Nigerian music scene towards the end of the last decade with super raving hits like, “Fall in Love”, “Why Me” and “Igwe”.
Since the pair went separate ways in 2012, Don Jazzy has proceeded to build up the mega fruitful Mavin Records, home to Dr SID, D’Prince, Tiwa Savage, Reekado Banks, Di’Ja, Korede Bello, Johnny Drille, DNA and Poe.
D’banj himself – who also owned a record label, DB Records – surprised the world with “Oliver Twist” directly after the split, and has remained a perplexing piece of the Nigerian music scene with hits such as “Emergency” and “It is Not a Lie”.
Regardless of the fact that the duo have gone on to achieve noteworthy accomplishment on their various paths, there’s presumably that a reunion between Don Jazzy and D’banj will benefit the Nigerian music industry tremendously.
Below are top 5 reasons we think the duo will be better coming back together.
1. Don Jazzy and D’banj are still better together
Albeit both Don Jazzy and D’banj have stayed hotshots on the Nigerian music scene since their split, D’banj, without a doubt, hasn’t been the monstrous genius he was while banded together with Don Jazzy.
The hit-maker who demolished pre-existing records by winning the coveted MTV EMA Best African Act award twice – once while still with Don Jazzy, and the second month’s after their part – hasn’t possessed the capacity to repeat the levels of progress he recorded while with Don Jazzy.
Although, Don Jazzy is doing better than D’banj presently with the triumphs that his record label artistes have earned these past few years, reality remains that Don Jazzy has no one signed to Mavin Records that is as big a hotshot as D’banj was when the duo worked together.
It’s truly evident that – just like bread and spread – D’banj and Don Jazzy are better together as a pair.
2. The duo might have some unfinished business between them.
Anyone who has the full knowledge of how the music business works knows that it can require a significant amount of time for records to be conceived, recorded, put together and released. For example, a song or an album released today may have been in progress for years.
Considering how unexpected their shocking split was, the odd are that Don Jazzy and D’banj were working on a number of projects that never got to see the light of day. Wouldn’t it simply be epic to have those songs brought up to speed, completed and released in the present music atmosphere?
3. Promising artistes could take in some things from the pair
Don Jazzy and D’banj share an unimaginable measure of industry experience and knowledge between them, having been heavyweights for such quite a while, and for all intents and purposes getting through universal outskirts long before their contemporaries.
It is along these lines expected that a reunion of the two veterans would give promising artistes who have what it takes to sparkle on the worldwide stage with vast ocean of knowledge that they can promptly tap from to propel their careers.
4. Their reunion could additionally inspire our most loved artistes
A standout amongst other things a D’banj/Don Jazzy reunion would improve the situation the Nigerian music industry is that it would totally change the business’ elements, making the competition for the top spot stiffer and therefore moving the artistes who are currently on top of their game to do even better.
Besides, Some of our most loved artistes who have since a long time ago quit making music since splitting up would be motivated to consider getting back together on the music scene and making long late rebounds.
5. Fans will be treated to more awesome music
Even if not for any other reason, D’banj and Don Jazzy getting back together would be such incredible news for the Nigerian music industry since it would mean we’ll be treated to more awesome music than we presently are.
