He went to Federal Government College Lagos and furthered his education at the tertiary level in Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Edo State, Nigeria.
His incipience into music was as a kiddo drummer at age 12.
While playing the drums he ostensibly eyed the bass guitar a lot and soon began flirting with the strings too.
Presumably, he’d honed his drum skills so impeccably that he was invited to play the drums in London by his uncle.
While off shore, he met a fellow Nigerian who was into music and they allied to float the “Mo Hits” group and label on emigration back to Nigeria.
He would later ditch drumming to glean record productions from one Emeka Infiniti.
Back in Nigeria, the Mo hits ensemble became a household name, with the likes of DBanj, D’Prince and Wande Coal in the make up. Great singles were been churned out by the group, thanks to the boss himself at the background of it all.
In 2012 there came a storm in form of a rift that severed the bonds between Don Jazzy and D’banj(the most successful act in the group) hence, the exit of D’banj.
Subsequently, the group disbanded and Mo Hits is now archived in history.
Same year Mo Hits got archived, Don Jazzy announced “The Mavins” as his new music squad.
The new ensemble had his brother”D’prince”, bodacious diva “Tiwa Savage” and “Dr Sid” as members of the music dynasty.
Wande Coal went solo and as the group burgeoned, promising acts like “,Koredo Bello”, “Reekado Banks ” and second lady “Dija” were recruited.
With the release of “Ada obi”, “Dorrobucci” and “Arise” the music empire became unrivalled in Africa.
