Popular Nigerian record producer and executive, Don Jazzy has revealed that his success and achievement in the entertainment industry is due to the support of fellow Nigerian musician, Dbanj.
Speaking in a recent interview with Olajide Adesope tagged: “Don Jazzy on Afrobeats Podcast 50th Exclusive Edition”, the celebrated Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy who is born wiith his legal name as Michael Collins Ajereh said Dbanj, the Kokomaster, was the ‘catalyst’ for his many achievements.
According to him, he used to be content in the situation he used to be in but Dbanj saw him and everything people are now seeing in him now and sparked in in him, adding that let to him alone, he would have been where he was feeling he was content but the Kokomaster changed his life.
“Dbanj is the creator/catalyst. If you leave me, every situation I’m in, it’s like I’m contented, I’m okay there.
“But Dbanj saw me and everything that people see in me now. He just sparked it in me.
“Left to me, I would have just been where I was and not do much about it. So, I would say he was that catalyst that said ‘Jazzy do this and that’.
“He ensured I achieved the things I did. He sold the idea of us coming back to Nigeria and that we did.
“All I know is that I had always wanted to build a beautiful record label or an entertainment company that is a powerhouse for developing artistes for Africa.
“We don’t have one. So, I felt there should be one at least to give people hope. Find people, develop them and send them out to the world.
“Now, it looks a whole lot easier getting to the world than it was back then. But it remains the goal: find young people and break them internationally,”.
