Nigerian music executive and record label boss, Don Jazzy, has shared the reason why he refused to sign Simi and Teni to his record label.
In an interview, Don Jazzy expressed regret for not signing Teni and Simi, admitting that he liked their work and wished he had signed them.
”I like Simi, I didn’t sign her. I wish I did. I like Teni but I didn’t sign her. I wish I did”, he said.
Don Jazzy also recounted how Simi partook in a Twitter contest where she did a cover for the song, “Journey of a thousand miles”, a record by D’prince featuring Wande Coal.
“I didn’t reject Simi. I did a Twitter contest for ‘Journey of a Thousand Miles’- D’Prince’s record featuring Wande Coal. I loved her cover. She was one of the people that participated. She didn’t win, but she was high up there.
”I didn’t pick the winners. I liked her but you can’t sign anybody. That’s one person I also regretted, I won’t say regret, but I wish we worked on stuff together”, Don Jazzy said.
Speaking of Teni, the music executive said, “The same thing with Teni. We used to check up on each other. I had not grown to the point that I would move you from Atlanta to Nigeria for work. Now I can and we work before deciding if we are going to sign. Before I knew what was happening, there were faster people. She released records and I was like, “okay we lost that one.”
