Don Jazzy said that he did make an unsuccessful attempt to sell the label when he was questioned if he had ever tried to sell Mo’hit records to renowned Nigerian music executive Obi Asika in the early days of the record for 1 million naira.

Speaking further, he stated that D’banj’s release of the track “Tongolo,” which brought him limelight but fell short of the anticipated financial gain, and thus this prompted an attempt to sell Mo’hit.
