Don Jazzy speaks on joining politics

Mavin CEO and record producer, Don Jazzy, has stated that he would do a good job if he is president of Nigeria.

He disclosed this in a recent interview with BBC News Pidgin.

When asked if he would ever delve into politics, Don Jazzy said he is likely not to have a successful career as he’s unable to lie like most politicians.

Speaking on the challenges faced in the entertainment industry, Don Jazzy stated that female artistes face more challenges than their male folk in the Nigerian music industry.

According to the 36-year-old, sex is often demanded from many female singers by music producers and TV personalities.

Don Jazzy said, “I have a record label, so I have male and female artistes. In the past, maybe I had the opportunity to go through a female artiste’s phone and read conversations that the female artistes had had with a bunch of producers, TV people, people in the industry.. everybody just wants sex. It’s tiring. I feel sorry for them.”

He also added that he believes society needs to properly school the male child better.

He said, “We need to fix the system in general. We need to train the male child better.”

Speaking on how it can be solved, Don Jazzy said that female artistes should publicly expose music producers and media personalities who demand sex in exchange for a favour.

“If these young ladies start calling them out, that’s a start. If a producer says he wants to sleep with you, call him out!”
