Nigerian record producer and Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy has revealed the role his fomer label mate, Dbanj played in his music career.
In a recent interview with Olajide Adesope dubbed: “Don Jazzy on Afrobeats Podcast 50th Exclusive Edition”, the Don Jazzy gave credit to Dbanj, the Kokomaster, for helping him out with his drive for success.
He said: “Dbanj is the creator/catalyst. If you leave me, every situation I’m in, it’s like I’m contented, I’m okay there.
“But Dbanj saw me and everything that people see in me now. He just sparked it in me.
“Left to me, I would have just been where I was and not do much about it. So, I would say he was that catalyst that said ‘Jazzy do this and that’.
“He ensured I achieved the things I did. He sold the idea of us coming back to Nigeria and that we did.”
Don Jazzy also maintained that Mavin Records, his record label, was founded out of his goal to create an entertainment firm that would act as a stronghold for young performers.
“All I know is that I had always wanted to build a beautiful record label or an entertainment company that is a powerhouse for developing artistes for Africa.
“We don’t have one. So, I felt there should be one at least to give people hope. Find people, develop them and send them out to the world.
“Now, it looks a whole lot easier getting to the world than it was back then. But it remains the goal: find young people and break them internationally,” said Don Jazzy.
