In 2012, the signing of B’banj by UK pop star, Kanye West record label led to break-up Mo’hit as Don Jazzy feels the new contract does not specify his role in the new arrangement. Dbanj and Don jazzy therefore mutually agreed to close Mo’hit and share their assets.

Back at in Nigeria, music lovers praised Don Jazzy for producing good sound for direct songs released by his record label. Others described Dbanj as ingrate for dumping his longtime producer who had contributed immensely to his career success.

While, some fans believe that Dbanj action was the best for Nigeria’s music industry, noting that Koko master song listed on UK bill was as result of his collaboration with Kanye West.

The Mo’hit break up was a blessing to upcoming artistes like Korede Bello who released Godwin, Dija who sang awwww, those songs are current making waves in Nigerian music circle. Korede Bello performed at President Muhammadu Buhari’s inauguration dinner and some churches also invited him to perform Godwin. Only God know where Korede Bello and other young artistes signed by Mavin records would be, if Mo’hit record still exist.

Moreso, Dbanj’s DB records are also releasing hit songs for Nigerian music lovers. So the break-up was indeed blessing in disguise for Don Jazzy and Dbanj as they are both making cool cash from shows, endorsement and brand ambassador deal.

However, the partnership the two once jolly friends would definitely be a plus for Nigerian and African Music. Fans are seriously awaiting strategic partnership of the two music entrepreneurs to take our music to next level in the world state
