Three questions were on my mind after the supposed fallout yesterday on twitter between two major players in the industry, Mavin boss and producer Don Jazzy and Wande Coal.
Did Wande Coal actually steal Don Jazzy’s intellectual property? Did Don Jazzy steal Shizzi’s credit for Wande Coal’s ‘Go Low’? Is this merely a publicity stunt to drive traffic and create awareness for Wande Coal’s new song ‘Babyface’?
Let’s take you back to how it all started….
A few minutes ago, Don Jazzy took to Twitter to state that he is the rightful owner of the song. In one of his tweets, he claims that he produced the song a year ago.
It hurts when someone makes use of your intellectual property and flaunts it to the world without giving you credit. But why did Donjazzy have to confront Wande Coal on twitter? Did he lose his contact?
Let’s move on to Wande Coal’s response:
And in defense, Don Jazzy replies:
Wande tried to clear his name by sharing the demo version of ‘Babyface’ produced by Don Jazzy:
Ever since this ugly incident transpired, twitter has been buzzing with side talks, criticism and all-out blame. A lot of fans were disappointed in the Mavin boss for calling Wande Coal out publicly rather than settling it in-house.
Others were surprised at Wande Coal for allegedly stealing a production work and still trying to justify this act based on his long years of being loyal to the label.
While some like me, are wondering if this is just a publicity stunt to promote the new song ‘Babyface’ as fans have downloaded both versions in a bid to verify the story. Wande Coal’s profile has long been removed from the Mavin Records official website. I shudder to think what will become of them if Wande Coal decides to follow the path of the kokomaster D’Banj.
The hulla-ba-loo is still ongoing as fans of both parties are at each others neck over the issue. Stay tuned for more updates! Meanwhile
