|How Don Jazzy And D’banj Betrayed Me – Jjc by r231(m): 8:13pm On Aug 11, 2011|
JJC/Skillz needs no introduction. He is a producer, rapper, DJ, song writer, a founding member of the popular UK group, Big Brovaz, founder of JJC and the 419 Squad, and president of Backbone record, which was once home to D'Banj and Don Jazzy. Skillz tells a City People reporter how he was betrayed by D'Banj and Don Jazzy
It’s just life. Some people forget how everything started and some people remember, I would say that I was really the person that built the foundation for everybody to become what they are today and I would expect that they would remember and pay me that regard but they don’t.
The experience with Don Jazzy, D’Banj and other ex 419 Squad members was heartbreaking, because it was personal and it became something that affected me emotionally, hence the reason I left music for four years and nobody saw or heard from me. I didn’t record or do anything musically. I slowed myself down.
Don Jazzy was a keyboard player and Mr. Solek and Kas brought him to me and said that he really liked my music. At that time I was already JJC and I had songs like kilonsele on air play already and had won a couple of awards, I was strong in the game. I trained Don Jazzy on how to become a producer and he lived in my house for about a year and I showed him how to produce, trained him on how to perform and put things together.
And D’Banj , from the branding to how to act like Fela, I did it for him. His song, mobolowon won, was written by me, Raggaremi and MP. Even All The Way was written in Lagos here. I was very instrumental in packaging Don Jazzy and D’banj.
I was supposed to release D’Banj’s first album on my label, Backbone Music, but by the time we all came back to Nigeria in 2004, everyone started going their own ways when it was time to sign the 50/50 contract. They all decided not to sign. If I give you a contract and you refuse to sign, there is little or nothing I can do about it.
Do I feel betrayed by them? I don’t believe in regrets, because I believe every single thing in life make you who you are. The experience has made me a better business man. Now before I start anything with any artiste, they sign a contract or an agreement, so that we don’t have any issues in future.

. . . But will he still be feeling betrayed if d'banj and don jazzy weren't so succesful? I remember when d'banj used to roll with d jjc squard (didn't know who don jazzy was then) and he claimed jjc cut him off cos he (jjc) felt he was not original enough. So what kind of aknowlegement is he expecting now?

JJC is only replying because Dbanj claimed he cheated them, dude is matured and has been quiet all these while. JJC got talent, Bigbrovas went global and its good we know he wrote mobolowon cos I'm not sure it was written on the cd at that time. I've always said dbanj is where he is today because of don jazzy's beats, no one will pay attention to his vocals ordinarily but the beats have always been attractive, Dbanj owes his success to don jazzy. The next few years apart will reveal more I'm sure.
