Revealed: D’banj not paid to perform with Don Jazzy at Davido’s concert

Since former Mo’ Hits Records label stars, D’banj, Wande Coal, Don Jazzy, D’prince, Dr. Sid and K Switch, performed as a group at Davido’s ‘30 Billion Concert’ at Eko Hotel and Suites during the week, people have been speculating that Davido must have paid them for such to happen.

After their fallout in 2012, on that night, the group went on to perform their biggest songs such as Booty Call, Close to You and Pere.


But D’banj’s manager, Frank, has moved to rubbish the insinuation that money exchanged hands before Dbanj could agree to perform.

Frank told Saturday Beats, “Let us not get things twisted, not a dime exchanged hands for any reason. The entire performance was not motivated by money at all. It was Davido’s initiative, he wanted it to happen at his show so he went for it and he got what he wanted. He spoke to all of the former Mo’Hits crew members individually, they saw his point and they granted his request. Davido is a good kid; he spoke to every member of the Mo’Hits crew. He thought about having a Mo’Hits reunion at his show and he got it.

“It was an exciting show and D’banj loved the performance. Davido made the request that they do a reunion at his show and D’banj simply honoured his request. He wanted the Mo’Hits crew to perform at his show because they were people he looked up to before his career started. He made a request and they all agreed that it could be done. Before the performance, everybody was backstage having fun and when they were through with the performance, they all went to the green room and the atmosphere was a lovely one. I was there with them and if you had the opportunity to have seen them bond, you would not have even believed that they ever broke up. There was no awkwardness at all. It was the same ambiance that surrounded them when they were still Mo’Hits.”
