Music executive and producer, Michael Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, has revealed that he is very happy even without marriage and children.
The entertainer who turned 38 on Wednesday, November 26 revealed this to Chijekwu Michael, a Punch Newspaper correspondent while talking about the highlights of his career and life in a recent interview held over the weekend.
When asked if he feels fulfilled, Don Jazzy said, “Pretty much, yes. I am doing well and I have a beautiful business. My family is healthy and comfortable. I know a lot of people would say because I am not married and don’t have children, that means I am not happy. But, I am very happy (laughs). I am not missing anything. Perhaps, in the future, I would start missing little children but for now, I am actually fine. I feel fulfilled and grateful. I thank God.”
When asked what are the most profound lessons he has learnt over the years, he said;
“I have learnt a lot and it may not be so easy to single some out now. I have always been a patient person and I believe in striking when the time is right. That has always worked for me. Also, all the things that have happened in my life make me believe that ‘a good name is better than silver or gold’. The person that came up with that saying definitely knew what they were saying. I have maintained a good name and brand, and that has always worked for me. If everybody could be like that, it would be a great world.”
When the interviewer asked him which artistes he hasn’t worked with but would like to, he said;
“Maybe some of the new guys in the industry that would want to work with me. I am old, so my sound could be very old and some of them might not feel like they need the older sound. However, I am here for anyone that wants to work with me.”
Asked if he is planning on signing any new artiste, Don Jazzy replied;
“I love grooming artistes so I have my eyes on a lot of people in this new generation and the one that is coming. But, I’m definitely not going to tell you who they are. I always wait for the perfect time before I making my moves. I was supposed to sign two or three artistes this year but the COVID-19 pandemic slowed things down, so watch out for them next year.”
