Music producer and record label boss, Micheal Collins Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, has revealed how he gets messages from married women on social media.
The Mavins boss disclosed this during a podcast show called “The honest bunch”, hosted by on-air personality Nedu and a few others.
During the show titled “Marriage: A poverty Alleviation Scheme”, Don Jazzy asserted that many Nigerian women reach out to him directly.
”I just feel a lot of people are just deceiving themselves, especially in this Lagos. Married women and men, they are all just lying to themselves. You know how many places that I have seen married women?… They are in my DM.”
He also explained why he thinks marriage has been made out to be a poverty alleviation scheme, which he believes isn’t right.
The Mavins boss also spoke on the kind of woman he wants, saying he needed a kind woman, understanding, and not a troublemaker.
Don Jazzy hasn’t been linked to any woman since he rose to prominence in the early 20s.

Jazzy posted his wedding pictures on Instagram and said he was married to Michelle Jackson, a UK-based Nigerian model but the marriage crashed because he made music his priority.
