It was supposed to be the 50th birthday gig for Lagos prince, Aremo Segun Oniru, but amidst the celebration, old friends turned foes, Don Jazzy and D’banj, mended fences.
The former Mo’Hits Records co-founders and one of their protégés, Wande Coal, set their differences aside to give a thrilling performance in honour of Oniru, who turned 50 in style.
The trio hit the stage to collaborate and performed one of their old hits, Pere, to a frenzied audience.
Sources close to the trio said the reunion of the top acts should not surprise anyone. It is believed that Oniru and one of his close buddies, Folorunso Coker, would have played a big role in the coming together of the guys.
A source revealed that D’banj is very close to Oniru, while Coker was said to have the back of Don Jazzy.
D’banj and Don Jazzy founded the Mo’Hits Records in 2006 after moving back to Nigeria from London. They went ahead to dominate the Nigerian entertainment scene until 2010, when they split.
While Don Jazzy recreated his initial success with the floating of Mavin Records, D’banj equally started DB Records. Wande Coal, who initially pitched tent with Don Jazzy’s Mavin, later left the label bitterly in 2013 to start his own, Black Diamond Entertainment.
