Music executive and Mavin record label boss, Don Jazzy, has recently talked openly on the Zero Conditions podcast about his early life, starting with his days selling akara.
Don Jazzy stated that he sat with his mother, frying akara and hoping for attention from well-off customers driving by in their cars.
“I can still see myself sitting there with my mom, watching the big men in their Peugeot 504s and Mercedes 230s come to buy akara.”
He confessed that he secretly wished for someone to notice his need and help him out.
”I’d think, maybe this person would just look at me and say, ‘Hey, take this, I know you could use it,” he added.
These experiences left a strong mark on Don Jazzy’s journey. He admitted that he finds it hard to believe those who claim they’ve suffered, as he believes many haven’t truly experienced hardship.
Now successful in the music industry, Don Jazzy remains closely tied to his past. He shared that he’s driven to help others due to his own background.
”I’ve reached a point where I can’t meet someone and not offer some help or do something for the community,” he shared.
He emphasized that he feels a responsibility to make a positive impact on everyone he meets
”It bothers me if I can’t leave a position mark on people,” he explained.
