In what is probably the most revealing and detailed Don Jazzy interview ever, the Notjustok TV crew caught up with Mavin Records CEO and Super Producer Don Jazzy in Texas while on his “The Don’s Blessings” special appearance US Tour. It’s a very special one indeed, as you get to see me – yes, Ovie – in front of the camera asking the Don key questions alongside my partner-in-crime, Renny.
In this rare and exclusive interview, Don Jazzy touches on so many important topics ranging from Tiwa Savage‘s deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the now-infamous Headies brouhaha with Olamide – something he refers to as a “moment of weakness” – to the G.O.O.D Music deal, who “scattered” Mo’hits, what caused him and D’banj to go their separate ways, Tiwa Savage & Tee-Billz‘s issues, taking a break from music, possibility of putting out his own single (an album might be pushing it), and so much more.
Don Jazzy tells us when to expect albums from his “triplets” – Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Di’Ja – or a possible follow-up to the Mavins’ collective album, Solar Plexus, and also discusses Mavin in-house Producers, BabyFresh and Altims, who have all created mad hits but aren’t getting the sort of attention they deserve.
Oh wait… there’s more! Wanna know Don Jazzy‘s opinion on the ongoing “Afrobeat vs AfrobeatS” debate? Or if/when he’s getting married? Or his thoughts on African artists picking up international awards “backstage”? Or whether he’ll be working with D’banj again? Then be on the look-out for this blockbuster 3-Part interview coming right here on Notjustok.com/NotjustokTV!
