Don Jazzy explains why we are yet to see the Mo’ Hits reunion concert
In an interview with Pulse TV, Former Mo’hits owner Don Jazzy explains why we are yet to see the Mo’ Hits reunion concert.
I’m the 1hr 30min talk, the Surulere producer also talked up how DJ Tee helped carved the ‘Don Jazzy’ persona.
On Thursday, May 2, 2019, Nigerian legendary producer, Don Jazzy was at Pulse studios for Loose Talk Podcast episode, ‘The Blueprint’ and disccused a host of things from Tiwa Savage’s exist from Mavins, record label, discovery of Rema and a lot of things.
During the discussion, he talked up Mo’ Hits Reunion concert and possibility.
He said : “The good thing about this concert is that everybody is willing, there’s no animosity. Like yesterday, I went to watch Avengers (Endgame), as I got to the private viewing session, I saw D’Banj and his wife. Last week, we were together… Before, there was wahala (laughs), but now, everybody is willing.”
He added that the Mo’hits concert will add big money in their bags and give most person what they’ve always asked for.
“I just feel like the bag (opportunity to make the money) has always been there. People have offered us money from then till now… I have a bunch of things I’m doing now, he (D’Banj) has a bunch things; like he’s supposed to drop an EP soon, after he dropped ‘Shine.’ Wande (Coal) has been busy touring.”
However, he stressed the need to present an exquisite concert, that will live long lasting memories in the hearts of attenders.
“But I’m a creative… I want to concert to mean something. That’s why we did Mavin concert when we did Mavin concert, and the next year, I did not bother to do the Mavin concert. There was money to do it, but we had no hits at the time to perform there (at the concert). Dapo (D’Banj) and I have been talking and maybe I feel we need to release a project first.”
On how he built his ‘Don Jazzy’ persona of the mid-2000s that never spoke in public, he says, “Pretty much, I was metamorphosing according to how things were playing out. It’s not like everything was planned…
“But as we came to Nigeria to shoot the video for ‘Tongolo,’ on the day for the video shoot itself, DJ Tee (the video director) was like, ‘since your name is Don Jazzy, you’re going to be sitting down on the chair there, I’ve told these people, they’ll bring like a walking stick or something… so you sit down there like a don. I just stayed there, I did that.
“From there, I was going to another show, it now became with a walking stick.”
