Why I Wanted Nothing With Davido – Don Jazzy

Why I Wanted Nothing With Davido - Don Jazzy

Popular music mogul and owner of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy, has said that he regretted not signing star musicians, Simi and Falz, back when they newly began their careers.

The Mavin boss disclosed this during a Black Box Interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, saying that he lost Falz because of his affiliation with another Manager.

According to him, he erroneously let Simi slip away in a music contest he staged years back.
He definitely stated that he never wanted to manage Davido.

He said: “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.”
