D’banj rarely grants interviews, and when he does, it goes viral.
He was a guest on the 11th episode of Olisa Adibua’s ‘The Truth’ and for the first time, he said quite a lot in the interview which lasts for over 30 minutes.
On the particular topic of why Mo’hits broke up, D’banj categorically stated that Dr Sid broke up the label, added to the fact that his former partner, Don Jazzy, was very unwilling to take risks.
In the course of the interview, D’banj recalled a leaked studio recording where Dr Sid said D’banj’s light was too much and overshadowing his career.
According to the DB Records boss, Dr Sid’s exact words were: “Why don’t they know my name, it’s because D’banj’s star is too much and it’s overshadowing. Mo’hits gave me exposure but D’banj has done more negative than positive for my career.”
Ever ready to hit below the belt, D’banj also said Don Jazzy’s parting words to him weren’t nice at all.
According to the ‘Feeling the Ni**a’ singer, Don Jazzy said: “Right now, if I dey go for road and I hear your song for radio, I go change the station.”
