Don Jazzy

Nigerian singer, Michael Collins Ajereh popularly called Don Jazzy has revealed that he had wished to sign Simi and Falz to his record label, Mavin Records.

He disclosed this in an exclusive interview with Ebuka on Bounce radio station, on Sunday, April 4th, 2021.

When asked if he has any regret in life or his career, he said “I won’t call it regret but I wish I signed Simi and Falz.

Explaining why he did not sign Falz to his record label, he said that he didn’t turn him down, adding that it was just like that.

“I can’t say I turned them down. For Falz, the working situation wasn’t just right. I run a firm that could handle almost everything he needed.

“But I think he had like a management company set up already. It was like Tiwa Savage’s but I had to grow into that kind of scenario where I had to handle someone that had a record label, some blueprint process.

“I equally didn’t reject Simi. I did a Twitter contest for ‘Journey of A Thousand Miles’. I also loved her cover because she was one of the people that participated but she didn’t win.

“I didn’t pick the winners. I liked her but you can’t sign anybody. That’s one person I also regretted, I won’t say regret. But I wish we worked on stuff together. The same thing with Teni. We used to check up on each other.

“I had not grown to the point that I would move you from Atlanta to Nigeria for work. Now I can and we work before deciding if we are going to sign. Before I knew what was happening, there were faster people.

“She released records and I was like, ‘okay, we lost that one’. Three hot stars. The only person I didn’t want to sign was Davido I didn’t want to sign him but I knew he was going to be huge. They have money already now,” he said.

Nigerian singer Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, better known as Oxlade, has revealed that he once worked as a tout after he ran away from home to pursue his music career.

According to him, he sold bus tickets—a job of motor park touts, popularly called “agbero.”

In a recent interview, the music star disclosed that he had to leave home because his lecturer dad didn’t initially support his decision to be a musician.

He said: “Honestly, he [my dad] was indifferent at first. But my stubbornness and consistency paid off [laughs].

“I ran away from the house at some point in my life to pursue music personally. And I had to do all sorts of stuff to survive. Selling bus tickets and selling foods at parties.”

Stressing that he is from the ‘streets of Surulere’ in Lagos, he avowed that “if you can survive in Surulere, you can survive anywhere.”

He added that the experience he had in the ghetto helped him make better decisions.
