Mavin boss, Michael Collins Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, has revealed why he didn’t sign music heavyweights, Wizkid and Davido, when they were still up-and-coming.
The music executive said he couldn’t sign Ayodeji Balogun also known as Wizkid to his now-defunct record label, Mo’hits, because EME boss, Banky W got to the Starboy before him.
Don Jazzy stated this while having a chat on the Leaderboard podcast hosted by Fisayo Fosudo, adding that he had the opportunity to sign Davido but didn’t because he figured out that the FEM crooner would succeed without a record label’s support.
The ace music producer also regretted not signing sonorous songstresses, Simisolo Kosoko aka Simi and Teniola Apata also known as Temi. Don Baba J said he almost signed rapper, Falz to his label, but the deal broke down.
He said; “I like Simi, I didn’t sign her. I wish I did. I like Teni, but I didn’t sign her. I wish I did. I had the opportunity of signing Davido but I didn’t because I kind of figured that he would be fine. Wizkid, obviously, I couldn’t because Banky W got to him first. That would have been amazing. Falz, I love his work. We almost had a deal.”
