Skillz, who was a part of the JJC & 419 squad (hits including ‘Gbao’, ‘Atide’ and ‘Kilonsele’ and ‘We are Africans’) and has been ackowledged as one of D’baj’s early mentors, has quite a bit to say about the D’banj interview this week. And, as the host of Nigezie’s E News, which conducted the interview noted, “It was not nice.”
In the interview, D’banj has mentioned the former hit group as part of his evolution with Don Jazzy thus: ‘People say I’m less talented, I was known as a jester in the JJC squad. I’d make everyone happy and play the mouth organ, but I knew what I wanted. I decided to give Don Jazzy power in 2007 when we realized that after four years, they did not recognize us as a record label. We had signed artistes and done all this work. So we restructured, and restrategized.
Skillz is having none of it. He is upset at D’banj saying “we worked for for four years and got nowhere. Why would you be slandering my name?” Noting that, the JJC & the 419 squad was “at the top of its game”, he notes how he helped D’banj, Kas and other artistes: “I used to pay Don Jazzy a thousand pounds a month,” before he added that himself and Don Jazz wrote the lyrics for Mobolowon.
