Nigerian musicians and producers go hand in hand. Hence the need to reveal some Nigerian musicians who made better music with their former producers.
The Nigerian sound wouldn’t have achieved it’s world wide appeal without the contribution of some of these talented musical collaborations .
I am not talking collaborations between artistes. No! The Nigerian musicians/producers collabos.
Some musicians have gotten away with leaving producers who brought them to limelight . They made magic with new producers.
Some examples are, Davido and Shizzi,Wizkid and Samklef,Olamide and Pheelz .The artistes have created bigger hits with new producers. Worthy of note is that, they never fell out with their first producers. The only exception being Wizkid and Samklef.
Don’t get me wrong, they still produce great music ,even internationally acclaimed(Burna Boy,Timaya,Wande Coal) ,but there is something missing ..That magic touch only a producer who knows them can give.
This explains why some artists would record huge success under a particular producer but once they leave,it all goes downhill.
Here is a list of 5 Nigerian musicians who made better music with their first known producers.
5. Dbanj and Donjazzy
Dbanj is probably still the biggest entertainer in Nigeria .He owns the stage when it comes to music .
However,Donjazzy was the major force behind this. Donjazzy understood Dbanj’s sound .This was evident in the massive hits they churned out. There was no Top Nigerian musicians list without Dbanj.
If you need more convincing, here is it. Dbanj even got Kanye West to give him a record deal.
Since their split,neither of them has recorded major or phenomenal success ,musically .
While Donjazzy’s new acts Korede Bello,Reekado Banks have recorded massive success, the magic he created with Dbanj created can never be replicated.
So,its high time ,they get back in the studio . We yearn to hear the words ”It’s Don Jazzy Again!
