Ben Bruce At 60: How Don Jazzy ‘avoided’ performing with D’banj
It was all fun few hours ago at the Eko Hotel, venue of senator Ben Murray-Bruce’s 60th birthday bash.
D’banj and Don Jazzy
The show had in attendance top people in the society and several music stars including the Mavin crew led by Don Jazzy/ Don Jazzy’s estranged friend of the defunct MoHitz Records, Dbanj, was also there, among others.
After the likes of Tuface Idibia, Timaya, MI, Wizkid, Koredo Bello, Reekado Bank among many others had performed, it was D’banj’s turn to do his thing. He performed and got the audience elated with his unique performance. His performance got to the climax when he went to the crowd to bring out the birthday boy. Ben Bruce got to the stage, collected the microphone from D’banj and started calling out to Don Jazzy to join them on the stage.

He made D’banj to promise he would do, once more, an award winning duet with Don Jazzy, just to tell the world no more war. But Don Jazzy had left the bash. Lol.

As I was coming up the stage, I saw him sitting over there and I told him I will call him on stage for a joint performance, but now he has run away. If you want us to do a duet, talk to Don Jazzy; It’s in his hands because if he agrees tomorrow, we will do it next tomorrow. I am ready anytime”. However, when Don Jazzy noticed Twitter was on his case, insinuating he left the birthday party venue so as not to perform jointly with D’banj, he tweeted these:
