When was the last time Don Jazzy dated someone? Find Out in this Interview



Mavin_Obi_Somto_Photography-61Interviews with Don Jazzy are so rare, that we’re so elated when we get a peek into the musical genius’ mind.

In his latest interview with national newspaper Vanguard published today, he addresses his work life – the Mavin crew and their upcoming concert, his own musical career and D’banj, his strong social media relationship with fans as well as his love life.

Here are some excerpts;

On His Career as an Artiste vs. Producer
Vanguard: Would you be releasing your own single anytime soon?
Don Jazzy: I am not thinking of that now. I have people that need to succeed. I am happy developing people for now till death do me part. Already, I feel that I am singing too much.

On D’banj
Would you be collaborating with D’banj any time soon ?
It is possible. We will do it when we both settle down and agree we want to do it. He is busy doing his own thing and I am also busy with my Korede , Reekado and Dija .We live in the same vicinity. By the time we sit down and plan it, we would create something. We would probably work again. As long as there is life, there is nothing impossible.

Social Media
You interact with a lot of people on social media, how do you sieve the people you interact with?
Why should I sieve them? If they come correct, we will talk. If they don’t come correct, I move on. I have met a lot of people via the social media.

Love Life
Does Don Jazzy have a girlfriend?
I don’t have a girlfriend.

When last were you in a relationship?
A year ago. I am on break now when it comes to a relationship.

When do you think the time will be right to tie the knot?
I might not even announce that I will be getting married. I don’t understand why you people think I will just come and announce that I will be getting married. I am not really that kind of person.

      Hmnn. Don Jazzy’s English though. Its pathetic. sorry to anyone this will offend, but he needs to polish up as a celebrity in his position. He aint no yorrywood nor ‘hausawood’, nor is he an ‘igbotic movie’ celebrity. Can you imagine how terrible it would have been before he went to live in the UK? And he has that much confidence and attitude on top rubbish grammar?!! Confidence is therefore not related to personal disposition/ attributes. Pigeon english is a different matter, but you cant have an english conversation and make such grammatical blunders.
      Well, I heard Tee Billz speak somewhere recently and I was appalled by his grammar too, so I guess all join. Tiwa, still our sweetheart, with a very good diction. the rest of the Mavin crew are on point in terms of SPOKEN ENGLISH .
      I’m out, let the dumbass peeps who dont concur, take a frigging hike!

      Lol. I loooooooooooove me some Don J but you do have a point. I disagree on one thing, though. His vocabulary is actually really good. The problem, IMO, is his diction. His Igbotic accent is strong, sha. Igbo Kwenu!!! Lol, but he’s better than PSquare.

      @concerned, ehhhn? about P square. I don’t even think I’ve ever listened to them speak. lol. don jazzy has achieved a lot, but a spade must be called a spade. he’s a graduate for crying out loud. lol. . .

      @ Osa lmao.. So Don J is a graduate? Haba he needs a private teacher. As for P-square(s) lord help me.. I was watching Dance with Peter & good grieve , his English is an apology! Years ago they were on Wendy Williams show & my first thought was d English. Well those that can’t speak the English end up having emergency “Fake American ascent ( ask Kukere master). Well Good luck to him.

      This your ‘Pigeon English’ line is really disturbing. Its Pidgin! You’re welcome. . .

    • Osaretin

      November 14, 2015 at 1:21 am

      @ Vicky, thanks so much for that correction. The word ‘disturbing’ seems to be used indiscriminately amongst Nigerians nowadays. It must be a ‘new’ found word, and seems to be used in the wrong contexts. You see Vicky, pidgin/pigeon English is not exactly my area of expertise, so thanks again for the correction from a more ‘seasoned veteran’ in that department.

      @L, till we change our lingua franca, there are at least minimum standards to be met, for the so-called educated ones.

      @Osaretin pls take the correction in good faith and stop showing yourself pidgin is part of English I studied English and Creolistic or Pidgin did not even start in Nigeria Google is your friend abeg

    This is what I call focus. There is time for everything under the sun. Some people will be under huge pressure if they did not have a relationship.

    I don’t know why ppl keep carrying dis don jazzy’s matter for head like gala. Dude is like 1981/1982, he’s 33/34 and has achieved more than what ppl double his age have not achieved in the Nigerian music industry. He’s still young and probably not grounded enuf to handle a family and achieving his dreams with travelling up and down. I mean it’s his choice…………what works for dr Sid mite not work for him. I’m sure when and if he wants to get married it won’t be a problem for him. Even if he decides it at 45, believe me he will have a spoilt choice of even girls as young as 21. We all can’t be d same. Ppl that are even looking for what to eat, will be forming I’m a married man/woman, and most basic stuff they are still trying to achieve it.

    Why are we so obsessed with marriage in this society? They could have asked a more intelligent question.

    Please don jazzy wait for me. Sniff Sniff. His Humor is what makes him so attractive to me. Don’t care about the fame or money. I’m too introverted and I’ve got my own.

    “I’m also busy with my Korede, Reekado and Dija”

    You are a real leader and father. Keep up with the good work of bringing out the best out of these trio.

    For his r/shp side, Freda Francis the “prayer warrior” was the last person he dated, that was last year. So she found out that Don Baba J no sabi “pray” wella and decided to hook up with the “ultimate prayer warrior”(Iyanya)
    Don J on own his side found out that Freda “prays” a lot.

      Rafaella, Oh my, you are so funny. Just keep cracking me up.

    @Osa, as a graduate too (I will guess you are), you should be able to write good English. Even if I haven’t heard you speaking (and I don’t want to ever), try and write good English!

    Olori gbeske!

    November 13, 2015 at 10:06 am

    Point of correction please !! Don Jazzy is not really an Igbo man although for career purpose, he finds it expedient to associate himself with his mother ‘s place in Abia State. Judging from his surname , ,Enebeli , he actually an Isoko boy from Delta State. I wonder why he is ashamed to claim his father’s place.

  17. Winnie

    November 13, 2015 at 11:07 am

    Don J, ich mag dich.

    Four possible reasons:
    1. His mother was the one who trained him and his father never contributed anything in his life. Sadly, there are many men like that who abandon a woman with their children and only show up when the kids are grown and successful. They now start to beg for forgiveness and claim that they have now found Christ.

    2. He lost his father at an early age and was raised by his mother with no support but grief from his father’s family, hence he no send im papa people.

    3. His father is alive but don jazzy is more familiar with his mother’s tribe, tongue and people.

    4. Enebeli might also be an igbo name so he’s actually Igbo. I know some urhobos that bear Okoro as a surname just like igbos

    Dreaming of a Don Jazzy and Linda Ikeji combination ?

    • amebo

      November 16, 2015 at 2:25 pm

      That will be great ooooo 🙂 hehehee

    November 13, 2015 at 1:32 pm

    LMAOOOO. Couldn’t she teach him how to ‘pray’ though or at least give him some ‘prayer points’. An old friend of mine is crazy about Don Jazzy, I’m sure she wouldn’t even mind that he no too sabi ‘pray’.
