Skirmishes amongst fan bases are common in the Nigerian music industry. Don Jazzy, a music mogul, has, on the other hand, cautioned fans of artists signed to his record company to avoid fan wars.
In a late-night tweet, the Mavin Records boss voiced his dissatisfaction with fans that insult other artists in the music industry in order to promote musicians signed to his label.
“If your only way to support Mavin is by hating on or downplaying a colleague’s hustle and success, then please keep your support to yourself,” he tweeted.
“I know some of you derive pleasure from that sh*t, but that’s not the Mavin way. We will manage our little fan base that is genuinely happy for others.”
Reacting to the tweet @DMLightttt asked the music producer, “So we should watch them spit thrash on our Rema without showing them who’s the boss?”
Don Jazzy replied saying, “Who made you boss? To what end? Your banter is not good for anybody. We make music for y’all to listen and enjoy. That’s only what makes us happy. Nothing else. Thanks.”
Born Michael Collins Ajereh, the 39-year-old producer heads one of the most successful record labels in Nigeria.
Mavin boasts of famous names in the music industry such as Rema, Ayrra Starr, Ladipoe, Johnny Drille and others.
