Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy, has opened up on his marriage and divorce.
The popular beatmarker revealed that he got married 18 years ago to an American model and writer, Michelle, but got divorced two years after.
This was followed by his wedding picture, which showed the couple in a warm embrace on his verified Instagram account and explained that he got divorced because he made music his priority.
He wrote, “For so long, everyone keeps asking me when am I getting married? Well, the truth is almost 18 years ago, I was 20 and I got married to my best friend Michelle @yarnstaswitch and it was beautiful. I loved love and I loved marriage. Michelle is soooo beautiful inside and outside with such a soft heart. But then, me being so young and full of dreams, I went and messed it up cos I was giving all my time to my music.
“Music became a priority instead of my family. We got divorced when I was 22 and it hurt. I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and mess it up again. So, I’m taking my time.
“Why am I just saying this now?? I really like to keep my relationships private, actually; past or present. But I was watching the bounce interview with Ebuka, which is almost like a tell-all interview, and I felt bad skipping this huge part of my life. So yeah, make una no vex o.”
Popular Tinubu’s Loyalist Hits Presidency Hard Over N5b Presidential Yacht
John Michael Ojo
Popular Nigerian actor, comedian and ardent supporter of President Bola Tinubu’s led APC administration, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, better known as Seyi Law, has criticised the government over its plan to procure a presidential Yacht valued at N5 billion for the President from the supplementary budget it recently presented to the National Assembly.
Seyi Law who made his displeasure known via his official social media handle on X, described the President’s proposal as being insensitive to the plight of the people.
The comedian called on Tinubu to demonstrate his astute style of leadership by listening to cries of Nigerians who are daily being hit by the economic crisis bedevilling the name and put aside his taste for luxury.
He wrote: “I am absolutely not in support of the procurement of the presidential yacht. It is quite insensitive to the plight of Nigerians at this moment to even rationalise it. I call on the president, @officialABAT, to once again prove to Nigerians that he listens. Thank you, your Excellency.”
President Tinubu was declared winner of the February 25 presidential election which many have also alleged to be one of the most rigged presidential elections in the history of the nation’s democratic rule. However his victory was recently affirmed by the Supreme Court despite evidence showing discrepancies in his age, schools attended and name in the document he presented to the electoral umpire, INEC before the election proper.
