Don Jazzy and D’Banj before going on stage at the 30 billion concert in Lagos, December, 2017

The former Mo’hits partners are set to drop a  hit song very soon. The song, produced by Don Jazzy has D’banj playing his harmonica with so much dexterity as in the good old days of “Tongolo”,  “Mobolowon” and “Why me” which endeared him to Africa.
It is not certain yet which day the song will be released, but a reliable source who spoke to Oversabi suggests the song will drop on April 1, 2018 (April Fools day) which also doubles as Easter Sunday.

I like the song in particula and i’m sure you guys will love it when you hear it. Don’t forget you heard it here first!

Mo’Hits crew re-union at the 30 billion concert, December, 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria

It will be recalled that the reconciliation move was engineered by DMW boss, Davido who re-united the entire Mo’Hits crew and had them perform in his the 30 Billion concert in December,  2017 in Lagos, Nigeria.



Does this look like one of Davido’s behind the scene pictures from a video shoot? Errr…not entirely sure about that, but I can bet it’s not a Kelechi Amadi-Obi model shot either!

This is the 2nd time in 2012 a babe is taking photos of (with) Davido while asleep in bed… First it was Sonia, a Nigerian student in Ghana. Now its one Mgbeke from Ibadan….or wait a minute…is she an Ashi?



Rumour has it that Davido is partly responsible for the break up between May-D & Square Records.

This started when Davido financed May-D’s star-hit video Ile Ijo. The act angered the CEO of Square Records Jude “Engees” Okoye. The video was directed by Clarence Peters, and featured friends of both May-D and Davido, and also dancer Kaffy, but none of the Square Records members.

May-D was also not happy with Square Records, for the fact that the label had not provided him the apartment, car, money and other items under the terms of agreement. May-D was often embarassed that Davido and his other friends had to come to pick him up from his family house in Magodo whenever they were hanging out.

Davido has also been fingered as the mastermind of his purported beef with Wizkid, a rumour he quickly dispelled saying “Wizzy is my brother”. The duo are reportedly in the studio working on a hit collabo. Now the collabo thingy looks to me a very smart way to squash beef rumours, innit? Artistes please take note!

Davido  might deny the brewing cold war going on between him and Wizkid and even tell everyone who cares to listen that the Pakurumo singer is his ‘brother’ but insider sources say that is far from the truth.

Before Davido bursted into limelight, he and Wizkid were unknown to each other but that soon changed once Davido also became a household name and they both got to meet and struck a chord of friendship until sometime in May when the cordial relationship went sour.

According to an insider who knows the duo well and the source of their no-love lost relationship, Wizkid was chilling at a hotel somewhere on the Island and apparently wasn’t having a great time so he decided to put a call through to his friend, Davido who at the time was hanging out with five other friends of his. The Omo Baba Olowo then instructed his aide to go and pick Wizkid at a hotel behind 1004 building on VI.

In no time, Wizkid had joined Davido and his group of friends at a club in the civic centre where they had some drinks before carrying the party to Movida on Idowu Taylor, VI. While there, Davido ordered some bottles of Hennessey for himself and two other friends who had just joined them and as they drank, Wizkid became tipsy and frail as he had one drink too many on the night.

Immediately, he was carried to Davido’s car parked outside where he allegedly threw up. All this while, Davido was nowhere to be found as he abandoned his colleague and friend.

After a while, the bar tenders produced the bill which was about N500,000 and since Davido had disappeared into thin air and bulking under pressure to pay the bills, Davido’s aide took the bar tenders to Wizkid’s home where he was forced to issue a cheque to cover their unpaid expenses.

This singular act put a strain on their relationship as Wizkid felt let down by Davido. Already, their relationship had been tested following the bitter break-up of Mo’Hits as both artistes had their allegiances divided between Don Jazzy on one hand, and Dbanj on the other.

But what would finally prove to be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back was when Davido was sending out invitation to guests for the launch of his O.B.O Album and he didn’t send any to Wizkid. And to add salt upon injury, Davido and his crew  reportedly sauntered out on a Wizkid performance to the consternation of many at the NEA couple of weeks back in New York.

With these series of events coupled with Davido’s denial and Wizkid’s obvious silence in the face of all the ‘beef’ rumor, isn’t obvious that all is not well between these two super stars? On Wizkid’s part, could this be the moment when ‘silence is golden?’ Time will tell.
