Don Jazzy shuns troll who claimed new signee, Ayra Starr, sampled Wizkid’s song


Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy has politely shunned an allegation that his new signee, Ayra Starr, sampled a song on Wizkid’s Made in Lagos album.

The music producer unveiled the new female singer on Thursday, January 21, and released her EP across music streaming platforms.

An online troll, who apparently listened to the tracks, claimed Ayra copied Wizkid’s track “sweet one”. He went further to berate the 18-year-old for allegedly sampling the song.

Taking to micro-blogging platform, Twitter, he wrote,

“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,”

The tweet caught the attention of the music executive, who carefully schooled the troll and cautioned the narrative.

Don Jazzy revealed that Ayra’s song was recorded before the release of MIL album so she couldn’t have possibly sampled it.

He quoted the tweet and wrote,

“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.”
