This is not the best of times in the relationship between Don Jazzy, the head honcho at Mavin Records and one of his former wards in the person of the one and only 'black diamond of the Nigerian music scene' Wande Coal.
Both guys who left together from Mo' Hits Records to form Mavin Records with D' Prince Omoba, Dr. Sid & Don Jazzy and was joined by Tiwa Savage to start Mavin have taken to the social media, especially Twitter to show the extent their former friendship has degenerated to.
It's now like an open war has been declared. Wande Coal sometime not too long ago left Mavin to set up his own brand Black Diamond Ent. There had been some form of dissatisfaction for a long while while both were still at Mo' Hits & later Mavin Records. But after the braking up of Mo' Hits & some members of the former coming together to form Mavin, everyone had thought things were now going to get better, with more attention now focused on all the others equally, unlike their days in Mo' Hits where D' Banj was the numero uno, but alas things didn't pan up like that. Only for WC to leave Mavin to set up his own.
Now after just a few weeks of parting wars, both seem to have gone on the war path. The crux of this new fight between Don Jazzy & Wande Coal aka WC aka Black Diamond is apparently over a new jam released by Wande Coal titled Baby face. Don Jazzy is said to have alleged on Twitter that Wande Coal stole from him (intellectual property theft).
The war of words started thus- Don Jazzy- How long will I continue to sweat and some people would choose to steal from me. I am nice and easy going doesn't mean u should disrespect me.
@Don Jazzy It is with sad heart I make this response..Steal from you? I served for 10 years why are you not happy with my progress.
Wande Coal's reply- You have my phone number, e-mail address and my DM to communicate with me, but you choose twitter attention syndrome.
