      You even mentioned Dbanj….now which of the Mo’hit crew that stayed behind in Naija is doing better than Dbanj!!!!Da Prince,Sid or you never heard say Wande Cole done crawl back to Dbanj…

      Baba, i agree with John to some extent. The fact is DBanj is not as big as the DBanj i used to know. He didn’t get what he expected. I remember thinking at that time they broke up that oga Don Jazzy is over. But Mavin (and Don Jazzy) is getting bigger and bigger.

      Besides, no compare DBanj to Da Prince or Dr Sid, abeg. They were never as big as DBanj when they were all in Mo’Hit.

      Success to Mr. P.

    Wow!!!! All of you judging Paul because he has not come out to talk. May people not judge you when it’s your turn to be accused publicly.

    Success to Peter and Paul. May you all resolve ur issues amicably and may peace come into your households.

      Oyinye, it’s obvious you are new on BN else you would not just accuse me of being Paul. I refuse to judge Paul or Jude as Peter has been the only one who has come out to tell his side of the story. I know of people who were accused falsely and others blamed them because the accusers spoke the loudest. Paul only said something recently.

      There’s nothing joyful about the issues between the brothers especially as they all achieved success together and I sincerely wish they resolve their issues, regardless of whether they come back together or not.

    “Beer parlour” and “restaurant” hustle seems to have paid…

    @ john. You’ve made an interesting point, but i’ll give this dude the benefit of doubt though and hope this time, it could be different…Let’s see how all this goes….

      Before i forget, Peter better start working real hard on his vocals and songwriting if he doesn’t want the “dancer” label to trail him right to Empire. Even the Michael Jackson moves are getting stale, bros better diversify those dance steps o!

    American market is good to break into, but I hope they do not stifle your creativity. Music business is not what it seems in the U.S. it is why most musicians diversify their talents into being called business moguls. Akon would know better.

    Ermmmmmmm people it’s a distribution deal, distribution alone! Naija people read and understand before commenting .
    But it’s true he needs to work on his vocals, both of them ?

      Your comment is off-point. Both Peter and Paul don’t have great vocals so your comment is unnecessary. It’s a fact that they’re entertainers and not vocalists.
      Congratulations Peter, God bless you!

    @Hmmmm. Generation and Era…Don Jazzy is a producer…he will find new talent and work.Dbanj’s era and generation are older…Is 2face still as big as he was…9ice,MI and the mid 2000s stars? Look at Iyanya struggling for relevance.?Some people are not scared to take a leap…he would have regretted it if he never did.
    Trust me…Don Jazzy and Dbanj combo would have worn out by now….
