The cold war between two old friends and music stars, D’Banj and Don Jazzy seems yet to abate as evidently shown Friday night at the 60th birthday celebration of Senator Ben Murray Bruce, showbiz mogul turned politician.
Our correspondent gathered that foremost producer and Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy was at Eko Hotels & Suites venue of the birthday bash along with his erstwhile bosom friend, D’Banj and birthday celebrant, Murray Bruce, a Senator representing Bayelsa East.
D’Banj, midway into his performance, had paused to invite Bruce on stage and told everyone of the Silverbird Group founder’s birthday request that the one-time buddies and business partners (Don Jazzy and D’Banj) should honour him (Bruce) by reuniting to make one more song.
The Kokomaster said he sees the possibility of working with Don Jazzy again once his friend is ready.
“Consider this request done sir. I am ready. Once Don Jazzy provides me with the beat, I am ready to lay on song on the beat,” D’Banj said.
Right there a little drama ensued.
Don Jazzy was invited to join them on stage but the prolific hitmaker tactfully declined the persistent calls, even from Senator Murray Bruce. He was later discovered to have left the party.
This set tongues wagging that Don Jazzy deliberately sneaked out to avoid performing with D’Banj and not willing to settle their rift.
This assumption gained fillip after the Kokomaster hinted that he had actually asked Don Jazzy back stage earlier to kindly join him on stage during his own performance.
