At the recent Headies Award, in which the established musical singer Olamide made some negative comments regarding the organisers and also condemned the work of some artistes, Don Jazzy later came out to make comments. Not known for coming out on stage to talk or address audiences, it seemed weird to some commentators.
After a few days had passed, a former PR of the MAVINS brand, Bayo Omisore, a popular Nigerian writer came out with a piece of advice for Don Jazzy. He said in the article that the Don Jazzy brand is dead and should re-brand.
One wonders why Omisore waited this long or chose to use this opportunity to get back at Don Jazzy. Did they part as enemies? Somehow, Omisore, who professed to be a good writer, discredited Jazzy for the part he played on the night of the Headies Award.
In part, he made the following statement: If you ask me, Don Jazzy had no business speaking to Olamide. I have seen enough Mafia movies to know that no Don that understands his worth would get so emotional as to entertain the thought of passing such a message on a public stage. That job is left to his Consigliere, in this case Dr. Sid, who is already disliked intensely for his supposed role in the Mo’ Hits breakup via the leaked tape. People would have talked. But Jazzy would have maintained his self-respect. He opened himself to ridicule the minute he opened his mouth on that stage.
As if Omisore was not satisfied, he went on to describe in a nutshell, some details of D Banj and Don Jazzy era, and the aftermath: Of course, with the breakup and the subsequent interviews granted by D’banj, too much information was shared in the public space that caused irreparable damage to the carefully-crafted Don Jazzy image. I think Don Jazzy should have moved on to the next stage. Or developed a next stage to move to. He certainly should not have done Loya or Konga or Jantamanta (wtf?) as Don Jazzy. That’s not the Don Jazzy we were introduced to.
Finally, he suggested that Don Jazzy stop being known by that name, and that he should return to normal life, after getting the fame, money, and accolades. Omisore even mockingly suggested new names for Don Jazzy, as you can see in the article he wrote.
