Just yesterday, I gave one reason why Don Jazzy would be successful with or without D’Banj. The article was a rebuttal to an article by Chi Ibe, YNaija writer/contributor, that gave 10 reasons why Don Jazzy was basically doomed, economically, without D’Banj. My reason was simple. I said Don Jazzy was an entrepreneur. He was a creator and as such, could reinvent himself, among other things I said. D’Banj might be signed to yet another label owned by someone else. Don Jazzy, as an entrepreneur, expands his personal and corporate portfolio and his reach.
I’d like to receive an award AML people for always being on the pulse of these things and getting it right. Thank you very much. A day later, I am proved completely right. Don Jazzy recently co-designed a ‘Samsung Built for Africa’ Sound System that has just been unveiled in South Africa today. I rest my case. AML now closed for business. I’mma catch you all later.
