Michael Collins Ajereh was born in Umuahia in Abia state, his family moved to Ajegunle city in Lagos state where he was raised, and graduated fromFederal Government College Lagos.[1] Michael Had always had a flair for music singing and playing the drums from the age of 4. He developed a passion for the bass guitar at the age of 12, He went on study Business Management at the Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma in Edo state.[2] He moved to London in the United Kingdom in 2000 after his Uncle invited him to come play the drums for the neighborhood Church.

Don Jazzy as he is popularly called started music in the church (as most Nigerian artists did) he is a well-known record producer, singer-songwriter, and musician having so many awards to his name, and currently the CEO of the popular Nigerian record-label known as Mo’Hits Records which was started in 2004 with only Dbanj as an artist.

“Don Jazzy” has come very far and has made a name for himself in the music industry; currently signed with Mo’Hits is D’banj, Wande Coal, Dr. Sid, D’Prince, and K-Switch most of which have come up with some good joints. Unlike most celebrities, he has managed to keep his life very private; there is hardly any clear cut info giving a window to his life biggest reason I think is because he is kind of a shy person, and secondly because he is writing his autobiography and probably wouldn’t want to give much away.

The rest of this article is based on perspective and research. Don Jazzy comes off as a very calm and collected person. He seems to know what he is doing and the result of his work shows that he is calculated. He also appears to be a very humble person you think it’s a lie? Follow him on twitter @DONJAZZY.

In one of his interviews, he stated that the reason it looks as if Mo’hits doesn’t want outsiders is because he is not done preparing the handful he has; pointing out that it is of no use having a dozen artists without having the time to nurture them and help them grow. The biggest thing I personally like about him is that he doesn't talk much. And if you ask me, I believe his work does all the talking for him. He makes up his life rules as he goes depending on what he is trying to accomplish. Remember when he used to whisper into D'banj's ear? Yea.... Well that whole thing started as a Fluke and it caught on. When you are being looked up to everything you do seems like the "in thing". Do you know the reason he started to wear “comfortable pant” aka pyjamas? well it is because he realized that most Nigerians look up to celebrities and wanted to be like them, so he figured if he wore something affordable, it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg to dress like him…(thoughtful right?). 

Mo’hits’ greatest achievement which has also helped to get Nigerian music out there is the contract with Good Music. Don Jazzy humbly stated that Kanye is his boss, although he will not be relocating to the United States,he will however make several trips to the United States. He knew he would be relevant in music, but he didn’t think it will be as huge as it is, and he is forever grateful to God. He has read and heard numerous rumors that has been spread about him and the Mo’hit family, and has handled them gracefully. He is also a very straight forward person, and will be the first to point out the fault in the Mo’hit Family. One of his greatest achievements is making Forbes List of influential Africans. I know we haven’t seen the last of Don Jazzy, probably not the very best but I can tell you it is safe to say HE IS A PORSCH NIGERIAN.
