See How Don Jazzy Ignored D’Banj On Stage At 2face Idibia’s Fortyfied Concert

Published

So, i got this gist from Vanguard…Read below;
D’banj as a singer and Don Jazzy the producer used to be the perfect team as the honchos of Mo’hits Records.

But like a bolt from the blue, their hitherto smooth relationship collapsed in 2012 like a pack of badly arranged cards.Ever since, fans and colleagues in the music industry have been begging the duo to come back together and rework their magic.

However, what could have been the perfect opportunity for the two heavyweights to address the issue came to pass on Sunday, September 20,at the Eko Hotel-venue of 2face Idibia’s Fortyfied Concert.

D’banj mounted the stage to perform some of his hit songs to the delight of the audience, and halfway through, he said he was going to perform a song, ‘Feeling Good’ produced by Don Jazzy and featuring 2face that was leaked online before it could be properly released.

He beckoned on Don Jazzy to join him on stage to perform the song, but Jazzy remained glued to his seat with new Mavin signees, Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, and Dija.

Even when 2face begged the duo to produce one more hit together, Don Jazzy remained resolute. In 2face’s words, ‘Don Jazzy and D’banj, abeg make una do one more song, just one…. I take God beg una.’

D’banj instantly responded with the words, “Sure! It’s going to happen,” while Don Jazzy still remained on his seat without even a smile.

This led many of the guests in attendance to insinuate that D’banj was more eager for a come-back than Don Jazzy is.

David Hinds accuses Burna Boy of disrespecting Reggae band at German festival

David ‘Electric’ Hinds, the lead singer and guitarist of Steel Pulse, has called out Burna Boy for allegedly disrespecting the Grammy award-winning Reggae band, at a German festival.

The 2024 Summer Jam Festival was held in Germany from July 5 to 7.

The event headliners were Burna Boy and Jamaican artistes such as Skillibeng, Konshens, Busy Signal, Lila Ike, Beenie Man, and Ky-Mani Marley.

In a comment beneath an Instagram post about the festival, Hinds claimed Burna Boy arrived at the event with a large entourage and demanded additional dressing rooms to accommodate his team.

He accused the Afrofusion singer of attempting to force him and fellow Steel Pulse members out of their dressing room.

Hinds argued that Burna Boy and his crew’s behaviour cannot be a part of Reggae’s culture, which promotes peace, love, and unity.

The reggae artiste also criticised the festival organisers for allowing his band to be “bullied” by Burna Boy’s security team.

“Burna Boy and security crew fully disrespected us at Steel Pulse, trying to kick us out of our dressing room so he could have 4 dressing rooms for his massive entourage,” he wrote.

“Selwyn Brown, original member of Steel Pulse, was livid and our team stood our ground and told them to beat it and you can’t do that to people, especially to a band that has paved the way for Reggae music.

“Summer Jam why do you have a full security team that think they can come in and bully people? Who the hell does Burna Boy think he is?

“And because of us refusing to leave, the security team proceeded to build a barricade of a blacked out chain linked fence that split the hallway between our dressing room and his dressing room making it feel like we were in prison or something.

“I hope that these legendary reggae festivals realize that this can’t be apart of the reggae culture. That’s Babylon business. We don’t treat people like that.

“Please recognise this because Steel Pulse was fully disrespected. Reggae promotes Peace, Love, Unity.. stand up for your rights, we must never give up the fight.”

As of the time of this report, neither Burna Boy nor the organisers of Summer Jam have responded to the allegations.

Kate Henshaw clarifies calling out Davido for not greeting her

Published

By

Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw has explained why she spoke about Davido not greeting her at a previous event, stressing that she was simply answering a question.

During a recent appearance on Isbae U’s show, Curiousity Made Me Ask, the actress was asked, “Sorry, why did you go to an interview to report Davido because he didn’t greet you?”

Appalled by the question, Kate Henshaw stressed that she did not report the singer to anyone.

She retorted, “I was asked a question, and I answered it. I didn’t report anybody; I responded to the question. What is ‘report?’ What does report mean?”

“They asked about the person, and I was speaking about the knowledge and interaction that I had. I didn’t report, and we even had a conversation after that, so it’s really none of your business. That’s what you people do; you look for strife,” she added.

Shortly after her statement, Isbae U brought in a Davido lookalike to prostrate in front of her and apologise for the singer’s shortcomings.

This comes after Henshaw revealed that she was not a fan of Davido during an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo in December 2023. At the time, she recalled an occasion where she met the singer, but he did not acknowledge her presence.

When asked about Davido, Kate Henshaw said, “Well, I’m not a fan. I like his music, but personally, I don’t know him. I’ve met him; he didn’t greet me. I’m sorry. No, I’m not sorry. I’m old enough. He didn’t greet, and for me, I believe he should be respectful. For me, personality matters.”
