In an interview session on Bounce with host Ebuka 0bi-Uchendu, Don Jazzy revealed the artistes he regrets not signing.
Speaking in the Black Box Interview, he revealed how he lost Falz due to his affiliation with another manager and how he failed to choose Simi in a music contest he staged years back.
In his words;
“I can’t say I turned them down. For Falz, the working situation wasn’t just right. I run a firm that could handle almost everything he needed.
“But I think he had like a management company set up already. It was like Tiwa Savage’s but I had to grow into that kind of scenario where I had to handle someone that had a record label, some blueprint process.
“I equally didn’t reject Simi. I did a Twitter contest for ‘Journey of A Thousand Miles. I also loved her cover because she was one of the people that participated but she didn’t win.
“I didn’t pick the winners. I liked her but you can’t sign anybody. That’s one person I also regretted, I won’t say regret. But I wish we worked on stuff together. The same thing with Teni. We used to check up on each other.
“I had not grown to the point that I would move you from Atlanta to Nigeria for work. Now I can and we work before deciding if we are going to sign. Before I knew what was happening, there were faster people.
“She released records and I was like, ‘okay, we lost that one. Three hot stars. The only person I didn’t want to sign was Davido I didn’t want to sign him but I knew he was going to be huge. They have money already now.”
Still speaking in the Black Box interview, he revealed he wanted Wande Coal to remain as he sent several DMs.
In his words;
“I did not let him go, you want me to go to my DM and show you different text messages of me begging him?”
“There are different messages of me sending him messages, I sent several messages like years… like 2012, 2013 at different times” Don Jazzy recalled saying to Coal “Guy there’s still space here, I feel like we still have a lot of things that we can do”.
“But then, he (Wande Coal) is convinced and he is at a point where he’s handling his career by himself and he feels like Yo I do not need to be under anybody, I can do my thing myself. It’s perfectly understandable, fine, but then I did reach out a couple of times, plenty times because he’s a f@*king genius.”
Lastly, the legendary producer revealed why he stopped producing for a while. Still revealing on the Bounce interview with Ebuka, he was asked about a potential collaboration with his former partner DBanj, and in his response, he talked about how he battled with production for a while.
In his words;
“[D’Banj and I] have done so much classics that whatever we put out now has to be the sh*t. It got to a point where… because of the accolades that I got from Mo’Hits, I used to criticize everything.
Even [Bounce] that is out now… If not because Rema is persistent, I’m sure I would have said no. I still dey produce… I like making music, I can’t stop.”
