I deeply regret my beef with Olamide, Don Jazzy finally speaks out about his long-standing issues with Olamide
I deeply regret my beef with Olamide. Mavin boss and CEO Don Jazzy opened up in a podcast about what transpired between him and Olamide in 2015. And the music executive is admitting his wrongs and regrets what he did during the event. He also added that he regretted his actions immediately after he came down from the stage.
It all started after former Mavin’s Reekado Banks won the award for the Next Rated Artiste Category at the 2015 Headies Awards. Which obviously didn’t go down well with Olamide and he made his feelings known. When he climbed the stage with his whole YBNL team after his artist Adekunle Gold won the award for Best Alternative Act for his song, Shade.
While expressing his appreciation, Lil Kesh prostrated before Olamide who took the mic and said; “Lil Kesh is our own Next Rated artist. F**k that sh*t! The streets ti take over. Every f**king single was a hit back-to-back. From lyrically to Shoki to Efejoku. Ko ni dafun Iya anybody. ”
He then dropped the mic on the ground and threw away his cup with its content spewing on stage as he and his crew walked away. After Olamide’s display, Don Jazzy won The Special Recognition Award and in his vote of thanks, he said: “I don’t like awards. I told Ayo Animashaun that I don’t want this award. I said the award should be given to D’banj but they found a way to get me here.”
And Reacting to Olamide’s rant he said: “I came out here to support my children. As they were trying to present the award, Reekado Banks was performing at Ali Baba’s show. I have already told my children that I will buy cars for all of them. Egbon Olamide, if you want the car, come and collect it”, Don Jazzy added. (The 2015 Headies Next Rated Artiste Award winner goes home with a Hyundai SUV car).
Afterwards, Olamide went nuts and came for Don Jazzy on Twitter. In a number of tweets, Olamide declared war on Don Jazzy and ripped him to pieces and also told Don Jazzy not to come to the Mainland. According to Don Jazzy he has apologized to Olamide and the organizers. So he and Olamide are good now.
