Jaywon (L) and D’banj
Neither D’banj nor Jaywon has been heard in the music scene of recent. Both artistes have just entered the news as Jaywon (real name, Oluwajuwonlo Iledare), on Friday called out D’banj, his colleague, over the allegation of song theft.
D’banj had released a song titled ‘Face Show’ on Friday. The singer enlisted the help of Skibii and Holly Hood Bay Bay in the track.
But a few hours after the Koko Master had released his song, Jaywon took to his Instagram stories to claim that D’banj allegedly stole a song belonging to a budding artiste under his management.
Wrote Jawon: “After calling to ask my artiste to drop his song and he refused your offer, then you went ahead to release the song”.
“Abah! Dbanj and management. You can do better”.
It remains to be seen if ‘Face Show’ is the alleged stolen song, even as D’banj is yet to react to the allegation as of the time of this report.
Jaywon is a songwriter, actor and producer. In 2009, he signed a record deal with Kennis Music label on which he released ‘Odun Yi (This Year)’, the hit single, which brought him to limelight.
The song fetched him several awards including ‘Best New Artist’ gong at the Nigerian Music Video Awards in 2009.
He also received ‘Best Recording’ award at the 2013 Headies and the Tush Awards.
Jaywon released two studio albums titled ‘Meet Jaywon’ and ‘Meet Jaywon Reloaded’ with Kennis Music before exiting the music label in 2013.
