Don Jazzy Reacts As Wizkid’s Fan Claims Ayra Starr Sampled Wizkid’s Song

Veteran producer and music executive, Don Jazzy has shut down claims that his latest signee Ayra Starr sampled one of Wizkid’s song on his “Made In Lagos” Album.

Ayra Starr who was recently unveiled by Don Jazzy dropped her EP last night and it has been the latest talk on Twitter.

One of her songs, ‘Iya’ seemed to share similarities to Wizkid’s “Sweet One” and fans of the Nigerian Superstar pointed this out.

A particular fan took to Twitter to brag about it writing;

“What did I just hear??? This new Mavin girl sampled sweet one?? She no evn allow the song age small. Later dem go open their mouth say no be Wiz inspire them….we dey wait”

However, Don Jazzy was quick to shut down the idea as he responded saying;

“First things first Wiz is definitely an inspiration to every artist from Nigeria in the last decade and beyond but this particular sample is from The website Splice. Almost every new producer gets samples from there. Ayra’s song was recorded way before MIL came out too sir.”
