"Daijoubu" how is it pronounced.?

My friend keeps insisting that it's pronounced - Dai- jou- VUUU, and not "Dai Jou Bu" and calls me a moron, and an idiot whenever i pronounce it "Dai jou bu". He is stubborn and won't agree even when I prove him wrong. So, in a last ditch effort, I am going to ask the mass public for the way YOU pronounce it.

Update:

+ he also says REAL japanese people pronounce it Daijouvu. I'm sure it's just a slight slur in the tongue, but it's still pronounced Dai Jou Bu

Update 2:

- He's claiming to be right from his stupid animes. Which **** me off.

    You can learn a lot about Japanese pronunciation from anime, but in this case he must have heard wrong. It's "dai-jo-bu," just like it's written.

    だいじょうぶ is how you write it in Japanese, and ぶ is the hiragana character for "bu."
