5 top Nigerian musicians that owe their stars to Don Jazzy

Iconic producer and Supreme Mavin Dynasty CEO, Don Jazzy, is the ultimate kingmaker, love or hate him. There is one thing that nobody can absolutely take away from Rihanna’s chief crush: he is unbelievably selfless when it comes to raising talents from obscurity to stardom.

There is no music countdown list anywhere on the continent that hasn’t been graced by someone groomed and unleashed by the don of the Mavin Empire.

His own journey to fame wasn’t easy. He worked at MacDonalds in London to keep body and soul together and worked his way, roughshod, through the ranks. But here is the thing. That experience has not stopped the don from making it easy – sometimes unbelievably easy – for other people to rise and shine.

Thank you Don Jazzy. We appreciate.

Here are 5 top stars that walked out through Don Jazzy’s doors. Some are still with him. Others have moved on since. The ones not on the list are no less stars, nor is the preference list here adamantine. These ones just tickled our fancy more!
