[News] Don Jazzy reveals shocking question people ask him in planes

Those hounding Don Jazzy to get married seem to have gotten the memo that he can’t be forced into marriage and they’ve backed off for a bit. But they’ve found another thing to pressure him about.
Earlier today, the record producer said absolutely no one can force him to get married (read here ). He has now taken to Twitter to reveal that while he was on the plane today, no single person mentioned marriage to him, instead they replaced it with questions about his weight.
He tweeted: ”On the plane now. Today was weird. For the first time everybody that met me didn’t ask me when I’m getting married.
They replaced it with ? ahh why so fat? ?”

[Interview] If my time for marriage passes, then so be it – Don Jazzy ignores marriage

Mavin Records boss, Michael Ajereh
popularly known as Don Jazzy has once again spoken on his marital status as he clocks 36 later in the year.
In an exclusive telephone chat, the ‘Dorobucci’ crooner noted that though he is in a relationship at
the moment, he is not in a hurry to get
In his words, “I don’t bring up
issues about my relationship status
on purpose. People always talk
about it though It is not difficult to
find a wife; there are many beautiful
women out there. It is not like I am
ready; I am not the perfect version
of what I would like to be to my
wife and family.
I want to work on myself until I am
ready. By the time I am ready, if
someone still wants to be with me,
that would be great. It is not like I
am looking for a wife and cannot
find one. There are lots of nice and
beautiful ladies out there. I don’t
think I am there yet. I am not in a
If time passes and nobody wants to
marry me, then so be it but for now,
I don’t feel I have worked on myself
enough. I don’t want a scenario
where I would get married and my
music or business would take me
away and the next thing would be
that my wife would start
complaining that I am hardly
Then people would start saying he
doesn’t care about his family. I
don’t need that type of talk in my
life. Let me be on my own,
whenever I am ready, I am ready. I
have a girlfriend; I have had
different girlfriends in the last 10
years. I can’t just be single; I never
said I was celibate. The relationship
can break, she can leave me and
go, and it is possible.
“My other ex-girlfriends left me, they
didn’t break my heart, they just
moved on, some of them are
married now, if they were still
waiting for me, they won’t be
married by now. People have their
personal agendas and it is
understandable. For me, I am not in
a hurry.”
He also emphasised that he does not have a child outside wedlock, stressing that to the best of his knowledge, nobody has had
a child for him. He said,
“I didn’t hear anything about having
a child outside wedlock. I don’t
have a child yet or maybe
somebody has a child for me
somewhere and they don’t want me
to know about it but I don’t know
why they won’t want me to know
about such a thing. If anyone has a
child for me, they should bring the
child forward. To the best of my
knowledge, I don’t have a child yet.”
