Dapo ‘D’Banj’ Oyebanjo, Nigerian singer and songwriter, says that Don Jazzy, his former label mate and producer, is begging him in his heart.
The duo had parted ways in 2012 over differences in interests, which led to the death of the once blooming Mo’Hits Records which they built together.
On Sunday, D’Banj, who recently announced the birth of his first child, a boy, shared a picture of Blac Chyna, American model, who attended his album listening party.
The Fall in Love singer had released the tracklist for his fourth studio album, King Don Come, which has ten songs and two bonus tracks, ‘Top of the World’ and ‘Oliver Twist’.
In response to his tweet, a Twitter user with the handle, @seetohafsat, wrote: “I don’t know where you are heading but guy you need Don Jazzy.”
D’Banj quickly responded saying “Are you also on the payroll? Even @Donjazzy knows in his heart he is begging me…You madt bruh? Lol…Jazzy come and carry your people.”

While sharing his worst day in business, Don Jazzy had told Peace Hyde that parting ways with D’Banj was not a good decision.
“The decision to part ways with my former partner D’Banj at some point or at that point was not the right decision. As much as there were financial consequences, it was also that I lost a friend and a brother,” the 33-year-old producer said.
“It was a mutual agreement, he wanted to concentrate on the American market and I thought we were not ripe enough, I just felt that we were wasting so much money in trying to create smoke where there was no fire. It’s not like I am not looking at the bigger picture, I just like to be realistic.
“We had a very beautiful relationship, I don’t think anyone in the music industry had that type of relationship at that time. The media and fans that were angry made our relationship strained. I would say something and they would think I was referring to him and the same happened to him even after when we had settled things.”
The Mavin boss said he was considering other artistes on the record label when he made the decision to stay in Nigeria.
“There is no way I would do that and not think of the other children I have over here in my record label. I had Wande Coal, D’Prince, Dr Sid and when I commit to something, I like to see it to the end and I couldn’t leave the rest of them hanging by going to the United states at that time.
“A lot American artistes including Kanye West were on me that time asking for beats and other things but it might take me a long time to be successful over there so I decided to stay behind and build what I have here.
“We got to a point where Kanye was interested in us so I think we will get to a point where we can make better demands. It looks like the time is ripe now with the interest America has in Wizkid, Davido and Wande Coal, it just didn’t feel ripe then.”
