It is the birthday of the iconic beatmaker and top music executive, Don Jazzy and like you we are also excited.
Born Michael Collins Ajereh on November 26, 1982 in Umuahia, Abia state, Don Jazzy has in the last decade created a niche for himself as one of the foremost producers in the continent.
A former church drummer, Don Jazzy started his professional career as a producer with JJC and 419 Squad before teaming up with D’banj to form the defunct Mo’Hits Records.
10 years after returning to Nigeria from the UK, Don Jazzy is regarded as one of the best beat makers and label owner in this part of the word
His label, Mavin is home to Tiwa Savage, Dr Sid, D’Prince, Korede Bello, Di’ja and Reekado Banks.
He is one of the top celebs on social media with huge followership on Twitter and Instagram and also few Nigerians who have been verified on Instagram.
It’s in order if the drums are rolled out and wine cups cleaned as we get set to groove.
Happy 33rd birthday to the don baba J of Nigerian music!
