BN Bytes: The Mo’Hits Records/GOOD Music Contract Signing – Video

Published

 on


For those in doubt.

The Mo’Hits crew hosted a press conference on Thursday 16 June 2011, according to Abidemi Dairo of NEXT Newspapers, Don Jazzy, head of Mo’Hits records said
The Merger
“We signed a merger and we are practically putting down the money to produce and do whatever we are going to do on our albums.”

Finances
“This is costing us about $3 million; initially, they wanted to sign us on peanuts but we told them we wanted a merger”

Other Members of Mo’Hits
“For somebody to decide they are going to sign the head of the house; Good Music Universal already know how big Mo’ Hits is and they are going to accommodate us all.”

The Mo’Hits Sound
“They are not changing my music, they are not changing my style…They love the style because it is different. What they are just offering us now is the structure”

D’banj on How They Met Kanye
“We were trying to get collabos, proper distribution outlets or something that will give us that global image, not just for ourselves but for the whole music industry. We met Kanye West in Dubai at the airport and we had the opportunity of playing our records for him for over 30 minutes. He later invited us down to America for talks which started last year. [Incidentally], he had been looking for African content and has been speaking with African students in America”

    I was grinning throughout this video. I’m happy for them. I hope they retain their Nigerian vibe in their music. Expose the world to our ways! Our wild happy ways.

    I love this guy’s razzness sha. Its down to earth and that’s what makes his music fun to listen to.

    Firstly it makes me smile to see kanye singing give it to me now ….. but see d the ibo man (don jazzy)- cool calm and collected – the yoruba man (dbanj)- just doing bala bala all over the place.
    we yorubas must sha behave lousily *sigh*

    • Adaku

      June 17, 2011 at 8:17 pm

      Don Jazzy is ibo? oh wow…didn’t know that. Guess i just assumed the whole crew was yoruba…

      My dear Igbo man na business man, no time for rough play o. His mind on his money and his money on his mind! I betcha he’s preoccupied with calculating how many millions they just made 🙂

      June 20, 2011 at 7:45 am

      @ Kemchi, he aint Igbo per say, he’s from Delta (Enebeli’s)

      Whats up with the ethnic comments.. We are all NIGERIANS… Don Jazzy needs D’Banj just as much as D’banj needs him… We are all #winning!!!

      True! Don Jazzy is Isoko but was born in Umuahia, Abia state. Real name: Michael C. Ajereh

    • THE AMAKA

      June 18, 2011 at 2:06 am

      BWAHAHAHAHA! #DEAD!
      seriously though, D’banj was doing too much and hopping all over the place, and Don Jazzy was just keeping it cool. and they say D’banj is older than Don Jazzy, who would have thought? lol, you’re comment is hilarious.
      D’banj can be happy, but he was too excited and was the ONLY one among the four that was jumping up and down. HABA.

      So would you too if you had to sign a deal worth magabucks with Kanye! What am I saying? You would probably have fainted! mscheeew! Abeg, cut D’banj some slack… he’s an entertainer! that what he does! He obviously has a sanguine personality! Go D’banj!

      OmO… this is what they call going off tangent. From Good music contract with MoHits to DON JAZZY is Isoko born in Abia state? HUH?! :/

      Wahlia, DON JAZZY is the coolest of the bunch because the guy treats his tweep fam with lots of love. He is my number celeb, all the others come after.

    haterz full this place to much. 1) regardless of tribe don jazzy has NEVER been an out there hes a laid back guy whether chillin wit dbanj in naija or abroad HES ALWAYS LOOK QUIET. 2) dbanj is an entertainer, his action show such if dbanj wasnt crazy with all the igbo he spoke, the ghanaians call me mensah south african call me blah blah = he would be sooo dry! dbanjs music is ok but HIS PERSONALITY SELLS HIM.

  25. Me

    June 18, 2011 at 11:45 pm

    Yes its been made private to avoid undue publicity and bad belle. They only made it open initially for the 1st few viewers i think? *just saying*

    i’m soo happy for these guys especially Don Jazzy:-)

    Correction, Don Jazzy is neither Ibo, nor Isoko, he’s from Edo state, his mum’s from Abia though.
    Happy for D’banj and Don Jazzy, hope this doesn’t become their greatest undoing, would have though preferred in D’banj faced his music squarely here in Naija and stop chasing about collabos.
    And precisely what’s gonaa happen to d crew, Wande Coal precisely?

      June 19, 2011 at 4:42 pm

      Edo state…that is a lie from the pitt of hell. this guys dad is delta igbo and his mum is from abia! since when did enebeli or Ajereh become an edo name
