Don Jazzy: If A producer needs sex, call Him Out
Mavin CEO and music producer, Don Jazzy, has mentioned that female artistes face extra challenges than their male counterparts in the Nigerian music industry.
The 36-year-vintage beat-maker made his mind known in a latest interview with BBC news Pidgin, in which he said that sex is often demanded from many female singers by music producers and television personalities.
speaking in a blend of Nigerian Pidgin and English, Don Jazzy said, “i have a report label, so i have male and woman artistes. within the past, perhaps I had the possibility to go through a female artiste’s phone and study conversations that the female artistes had had with a bunch of producers, tv people, people in the industry.. everybody simply wants sex. It’s tiring. I feel sorry for them.”
according to him, the system is flawed and needs to be fixed.
Don Jazzy also added that he believes the society needs to raise the male child better.
He said, “We need to restore the system in general. We want to train the male child better.”
As an alternative solution, Don Jazzy said that female artistes should publicly expose music producers and media personalities who demand sex in exchange for a deserved favour.
“If those young ladies start calling them out, that’s a start. If a producer says he wants to sleep with you, call him out!”
in the rest of the interview, Don Jazzy answered questions about his first marriage to Michelle Jackson, whom he had divorced at the age of 22.
He admitted that his views about marriage are always changing.
“Are we even supposed to get married?” he posed sarcastically.
Don Jazzy revealed that he feels no remorse about his divorce and confirmed that his ex-wife had remarried and has a child.
He stated he is unmarried and teased that people are welcome to “shoot shots” – slang for ‘romantic proposals.’
when asked if he would ever venture into politics, the record label owner stated he’s unable to lie like politicians, thus won’t have a successful political career.
but, he stated he would do a solid job as President. “If I be president, i go do good process,” Don Jazzy teased.
