Head honcho of the Mo’ hits crew, Don Jazzy has apologised to Nigerians on Twitter for voting and encouraging other young ones to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan during last year’s presidential elections.
In his reaction to the recent fuel subsidy removal on New Year’s Day, Don Jazzy tweeted: ‘’I hardly ever regret decisions I make. That my 1 vote added to put the current government in power is one decision I regret with all my heart.’’
He went on to respond to folks who were calling him out for supporting the president. He continued, ‘’Na all of us dem wash. Only my vote could not have put him in. So stop laying blames guys and let’s solve the problem together ‘cos we all voted.’’ Finally, he denied receiving money from the president to campaign for him.
The reactions came fast:
@iswampa tweeted: ‘’@DONJAZZY u r forgiven bro. Together we will correct the wrong.’’
@ifeanyiigbemudu: ‘’yup my respect 4 @DONJAZZY has risen even higher.’’
@osazee_o: “Nicely said.’’
@ubashagi: ‘’@DONJAZZY tell dem ooo… u didn’t force our inked hands on the PDP logo…pushin blames won’t reduce the mess we all are in.’’
Some were not impressed however and they lashed out at the producer:
@Tommss_A: ‘’@DONJAZZY can like to shush’’
@Venussbay: ‘’what were u thinking?’’
@Mrsleevesup: ‘’Oga we didn’t all vote o. u lot did and sang ‘’Goodluck for me, Goodluck for you. #OccupyNigeria’’
Mayor3DMax: ‘’God punish you for making dat statement… u and dbanj voted for #GEJ becos of money u collected…#OccupyNigeria’’
Some however chose to channel this regret:

@alaminkm: ‘’@DONJAZZY Abeg produce anti-government song for us, let’s use it to protest. Support the movement. IDJA #OccupyNigeria’’
