The 5th episode of the flagship Forbes Africa TV show, “My Worst Day with Peace Hyde” features Nigerian celebrated music producer Don Jazzy. Hosted by Forbes Africa’s West Africa correspondent Peace Hyde , the music mogul shares his most challenging day in business. Don Jazzy also dishes on his family, his parents, falling in love with music as a child, working tough jobs in the UK, and the real reason behind the Mo’Hits breakup, the 'feud' with rapper Olamide at the 2015 Headies. Speaking on the odd security guard job he did while in the UK, he said:
“It’s one of those things that happen to guys in the UK. You don’t have a job. I used to play drums for churches, but it was not enough to pay for rent in the UK."Speaking to Peace Hyde of Forbes Africa, he said he reacted out of anger, as he is very emotional about his music acts whom he calls his kids. He said
“I learnt a lesson about anger, I don’t really get angry like that. At that particular point, I was angry and emotional about my kids. You have to understand there’s no greater love than the love of a father for his children,“I think that’s the way people should know the amount of love i have for whoever is working for me. Especially those three. I guess I was weak, I was upset, spoke out of tongue. I’m sorry to my fans that expected better from me.”
“That’s the beauty about adults. In two seconds after saying all that I regretted my actions. I realised that he did too and we got along. We didn’t want it to escalate.”
On his worst day in business, he said:
The decision for myself and my former partner, Dbanj to pursue different path at that point was not the right the decision because it led to a lot of things. 'Apart from the financial loses, I also lost a friend and brother in D'banj.
