Social media controversy has trailed Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy after he embarrassed his old friend D’banj by abandoning him on stage alone and disappeared into tin air when they were supposed to performed together.
At a star studded event last night at the Eko Hotel, venue of Senator Ben Murray-Bruce’s 60th birthday bash. The show had in attendance top people in the political and entertainment industry as well as several music stars including the Mavin crew led by Don Jazzy and estranged friend of the defunct MoHitz Records, Dbanj, among others.
After the likes of 2face Idibia, Timaya, M.I, Wizkid, Koredo Bello, Reekado Bank among many others had performed, it was D’banj’s turn to do his thing. He performed and got the audience elated with his unique performance. His performance got to the climax when he went to the crowd to bring out the birthday boy.
Silverbird boss, Ben Bruce got to the stage, collected the microphone from D’banj and started calling out to Don Jazzy to join them on the stage.
Don Jazzy was nowhere to be found. Dbanj also rushed to the crowd to fetch his erstwhile friend, but he had disappeared. Meanwhile, one of the wishes of the birthday boy for the night was for the duo (Don Jazzy and D’banj) to perform together on one stage just to tell the world that there’s no more war.
Responding to Ben Bruce’s ‘please do this for me, it is my birthday request’ plea, D’banj said that he is ready to work with the Mavin boss whenever he is ready.
“I have given serious consideration to this. Before I came on stage, I went to Don Jazzy and asked him to join me on stage. If he gives me a beat today, the song will be ready the next day,” D’banj said.
At this point when Don jazzy is still nowhere to be found, D’banj said: “Uncle Ben, what you are asking me to do, I have done already. As I was coming up the stage, I saw him sitting over there and I told him I will call him on stage for a joint performance, but now he has run away. If you want us to do a duet, talk to Don Jazzy; It’s in his hands because if he agrees tomorrow, we will do it next tomorrow. I am ready anytime.”
However, when Don Jazzy noticed Twitter was on his case, insinuating he left the birthday party venue so as not to perform jointly with D’banj, he tweeted these:
