the songs weren't bad, but left to me Don Jazzy shouldn't have rushed this album, he should have waited for D'banj to come up with his first n lets hear him out, now am sure D'banj would have listen to this n quickly correct his error..it was a good one though!! smiley

All those condemning this LP are so used to the Dbanj-Don Jazzy collabos.
This LP is some fresh air and once again another new form of Don Jazzy production innovation.
All tracks are potential hits.
Listening to the LP, I can't see Dbanj fit in to any of the songs.Get the drift........
This is truly a new dimension and b4 u know it we'll all appreciate it with more time and plays.
Keep it up MAVIN Records! And I hope Dbanj can replicate this and do more; 4 a healthy competition and
bring out the best in both of them. I wish them both best of luck!

I think it is a good idea from Don Baba Jay. I love the combination Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, Dr. Sid, D Prince and The Madam Tiwa Savage. I love their ideas they have release an album which i have downloaded all the music. Its a good thing sha. Kudos to Don Baba Jay

"Amarachi" by D Prince is a certified hit. Can't stop jamming the song. D'banj could have gone places with the song. D Prince is a success going by his number of hits so far. "Omoba", "Jonzin" ,"Give it to me" and this "Amarachi".

First and foremost, the songs we listen to now cannot be compared to the Naija songs of the 80' and early 90'. What we hear now are beats and poor lyrical contents and lack of creativity, even some artistes mumble with the beats.

For people who say that Don Jazzy rushed the album, it makes me wonder if he had ever done a track without rushing it. From "Tell me the Koko" to "Oliver Twist" was rushed (most Nigerian musics nowadays are rushed, 2days, 1 day, some minutes; I wonder where they are rushing to?).

Overall, the album is poor compared to what we have seen Don Jazzy do in the past. To me I feel the artistes were competing to keep up with the beats, most of the tracks are noisy, with each artiste delivering either recycled lyrics or poor lyrical content. I even believe the musical reputation of Tiwa Savage is on the line, with hit tracks like Kele Kele Love, only for this poor delivery on Oma Ge (makes me wonder if she writes her song, she was even using Terry G's crappy lyrics). Wande Coal (I had to adjust my headset, that guy was screaming more than Michael Jackson plus the autotunes effect). For Dr. SID and D' Prince, we all know they are average musicians, I think D' Prince did well in Amarachi and Banana. Dr. SID and Don Jazzy were just experimenting. The Techno beats on CPR would have been handled better by someone who has strong vocals. The Chocolate beat was really wasted. I know Wiz Kid with his autotune enhanced voice will do justice to that beat. He tried with "YOLO".

On the business side, Don Jazzy should allow other producers produce beats for his artiste, else diminishing returns will set in (that is why some people were asking why all the beats sound alike) and he should sign real talents roaming around the country. As a business man, I like the fact that he quickly put out something (although of poor quality) to notify people that he is still standing strong. I wish him the very best and his artistes too. Well if his next release is going to be something close to this, my money no go leave pocket.

PS: I wonder how D'Banj would have handled "Banana". I missed their collaboration. Guys if you do find time, try listening to musics of the 80s' and compare it to what we are listening to now. Well I will strongly suggest it to the young lads, because many of them are happy with these crappy stuff. Also, the noise about Don Jazzy being the best producer in Africa should stop, they are some very d.o.p.e producers in Egypt, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Africa that are not making noise. No doubt, he a very creative producer that his beats makes me wonder if they were computer generated or something else, however, please note that some Nigerian producers are also catching up.

just listened to d entire album and honestly i nearly threw my sound system out the window... i mean that ish was WACK! no hating i love d mavin crew and wish them well but this was most def not a stella performance by any means. the only songs i even thought about repeating where 'im a mavin' and 'si mi ri' by wande coal apart from that, there where few instances of good production from jazzy but generally weak performance from the artistes which gives me a feeling don j put more effort into the album than his singers and if i was him i would flog them seriously for wasting my beats. CV by mohits was a FAR better collaborative album.

Nice effort by Don Jazzy but could be better. Truth be told, I missed @iamdbanj swag in the album. Everybody in suit reminds me of the movie "Men in Black"

Can't be compared with Mohits Allstars.

Why do people get addicted to personalities and celebs so much that they are blind to their flaws? Take it or leave it,solar plexus album was rushed by micheal ajere(don jazzy) and co to remain relevant in the music industry with little recourse to the quality of the songs. The Wande Coal we know isnt as lyrically weak as espoused in this album and d swag imprints of dir sid wasnt as bad as wat is in the album,d prince is a below average musician who is being blended wit good sounds to be marketable but the lack of talent and swag could be evident in the tracks he owns. Tiwa Savage should have been allowed to sing more tracks cos she is super talented and has an outstanding vocal ability, she arguable is the best female vocalist naija hip hop scene has. Oma ga was a nice track by her,the best in the album. Wande Coal Forever is fair enough but the album in a general view is noisy and unforgivably wack!

Wasn't impressed! I understand he's under a lot of pressure though because of the question on everyones lips as well as the recent turn of events. For that, I'll let it slide because there's no arguing his creativity, that's stamped! But DJ needs to come harder next time, if anything, this should put him in the right mindset from hereon. I like what someone up there said about him getting other producers to make beats just to make his work more rounded.and what's with people having a go at eachother, is it wrong to have an opinion?

All in all I give it a 6/10

DJ can do better.

deenee: Just for the record, mohits signed a 'distribution deal' filled with a lot of 'caveats' with kanye for his music label to help launch dbanj into the US market and kanye has not made any financial commitment to dbanj at all.

We Nigerians are wishful thinkers and misconstrue a lot. No wonder there is a proliferation of churches all over the country. Let's ask ourselves some vital questions, if dbanj is signed to good music as an artiste why is he then signed to mercury music uk? Why not pack his bags and fly over to NYC and release his album in the states? Why is he funding the release of his uk album himself without any backing from kanye or even his new record label? The deal signed with good music is similar to that signed by cash money with universal music. Lil wayne is signed to cash money yet has a distribution deal with universal, 50 cent to shady records and a deal with interscope to distribute and sell his music, slim shady to dr dre's label and a distribution deal with interscope too. Lady gaga to akon's konvict music and with a distribution deal with sony/universal. Even our very own wizkid and psquare just signed similar deals with akon's konvict music so as to use that platform to promote their music abroad which implies that they would be launching an 'international version' of the albums they wish to push into the US market.

This said I will opine that the album is not at par with other past albums. However, this new release is free and for promotional purposes only so I in my own view would not expect it to be a masterpiece!

Best of luck to both parties!
Tell them my bro. Nigerians are the greatest wishful thinkers on earth. Thats why the politicians continue to rip us off because the ordinary Nigerian will be saying Nigeria is the richest nation on earth with the condition it is today. Am tired of hearing kanye signed dbanj to good music. How can the entire population fall to a marketing ploy? Dbanj is not even listed on Good Music website as its artist
Re: Is Don Jazzy's Solar Plexus A Flop? by onandon: 11:32pm On May 11, 2012
Yolo, banana, o ma ga, amarachi, se mi ri are good dance tracks.. I missed d banj on the Amarachi track he woulda made it better. Chocolate has a wickid beat, mature instrumental but Sid coulda don better. Listen with your earphones you won't stop bobing your head.

Ok I just heard TAKE BANANA for the first time in a club setting, and I must say it's a banger. Who would have thought the D'Prince of all peopl. . . Not even Tiwa's Oma ga elicited the kind of reaction take banana did.

Let's see what becomes of this noisy album, it may very well become a big hit altogether.
