When a relationship breaks down - Don Jazzy and Dbanj

Don Jazzy, the guy who produced that song which got me rocking the dance floor on my wedding day tweeted  earlier todayabout the rumours of his split with Dbanj. I shook my head of course. I didn't miss the splash made in the media of Dbanj's gaffe in an interview. And because I watched the full clip of his interview with Sahara Reporters some weeks prior, I won't be surprised if he had actually misyarned. The guy is not all that. He's just an entertainer, like he said.

Now I don't also know Don Jazzy except when people I do follow retweet him or the rags carry his tweets, so I'm not taking sides. I read the following tweets first thing this morning from one of my BB contacts.

"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end of a long era and the beginning of a new one."
"Some of the rumours you have all heard recently are sad but true."
"The way forward now is to make sure I keep bringing you guys more of the beautiful music y'all love to dance to."
"And to end the old era I will be donating the proceeds of my production catalogue from day 1 till date to 5 charity organizations. Thanks. IDJA".

I wonder if the deal with Kanye's GOOD music has anything to do with what's going on. Has dealing with the supposed American music royalty made one of them lose respect for the other lower class naija celeb? Maybe Kanye West makes better beats than Don Jazzy. Or is one becoming jealous of the high profile of the other? Who knows?

Reminds me of romantic relationships in a way. Things move smoothly when all things are equal, but bring in new circumstances, and the couple fall apart. Sometimes, when you are not close enough to be privy to all details, you may never be able to determine how to put mouth. In other cases, it may just be so obvious where some part of the blame lies, if not all. And it is in situations like this that the importance of respect and good communication is manifested.

Any relationship just rolling along on the good times is a risky venture. All couples should;

-Start on time to build trust, respect, and talk about their issues, current and expected.
-They should have plans for future projections, children, education, job loss, that kind of thing.
-They should know what they can bear and what is out of bounds, like domestic violence, lying/deceit, cheating, etc.

Life by its nature is unpredictable, and change is the only constant. We should try to be prepared at all times. Yes, it can be out of our hands sometimes, but we're not so powerless all the time.

Okeoghene blogged recently about Marriage and Finances where a husband lost his job and the working wife became the sole breadwinner. And then the story takes a turn,
"Last month, the wife feeling the need to upgrade her wardrobe bought a couple of outfits and shoes before giving the husband what was left. The husband was furious, he refused to collect the money  and he told her she doesn't have the right to spend the money. He hit her then told her he is the one to decide if she needs new clothes or shoes."

In both the Don Jazzy/Dbanj case, or the husband/wife case above, we may never know the full details.  However, if he did, Dbanj shouldn't have claimed he owned Mohits and Don Jazzy was his lackey. It is comparable to the husband hitting his wife. Some things are just plain wrong. But hey, what do I know?

Good luck to all the parties involved. Relationships are so difficult sometimes.
