Producer Shizzi has been caught up in the intellectual theft brouhaha between Don Jazzy and former Mavin label mate Wande Coal, and has released his official statement.
Shizzi, who produced Davido’s Skelewu, said,
I have heard and seen some folks rants about me stealing production credit for Wande Coal’s new single Baby Face and I would like to clarify this issue. I was only doing my job by making the beat for Wande and that’s what I did. I don’t see any reason why people should jump into quick conclusions without taking their time to really dig into the matter for facts.
Two years back, I remember I created a demo for Wande Coal’s Shawty Go Low and someone else took the credits. I was in shock because I had plans to finish the song with Wande and was hoping it would be released as a single which I produced.
Don Jazzy had posted on Twitter last night that Baby Face, Wande Coal’s latest single belonged to him and wanted credits.
