I regret being caught on camera smoking a cigarette – Don Jazzy


Michael Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, is a prominent music producer and the Chief Executive Officer of Mavin Records. He believes the most disappointing act in his career was being caught on tape smoking cigarettes.

Don Jazzy stated this during an interview with a former Big Brother Naija contestant, Doyinsola David. He said, “I remember the first time people saw that I used to smoke cigarettes; not anymore though, but I used to smoke. I did not think it was anything bad. I think it was at a concert. I was being recorded, and I was trying to adjust my eyeglass. In the process of adjusting the glasses, my cigarettes showed. My (social media) timeline went agog. It just felt like a religious figure being caught watching porn; that was how it felt.”

Don Jazzy also stated that his argument with Olamide, the rapper and YBNL chairman, at the 2015 Headies Awards was out of character for him.

“That action was out of character, and I realised it instantly I got off the stage after saying it. Of course, I apologised to both Olamide and the organisers of the Headies Awards.”

Meanwhile, Mavin Records marked International Women’s Day last month with a variety of female-led projects.

A boot camp for 15 female creatives, including independent artists, sound engineers, composers, and producers, was one of the activities. During the boot camp, participants were exposed to cutting-edge facilities and facilitators thanks to a collaboration with the AudioGirl Foundation, managed by Febe Adedamola.
