I Helped My Mother Sell Akara Hoping Big Men Would Give Me Money – Singer Don Jazzy



Michael Ajereh, popularly known as  Don Jazzy, has explained his motivation while working with his mother to sell beans cake during his childhood days in the Ajegunle area of Lagos State.

In the most recent episode of “Crea-ri-vi-ri” on the Zero Conditions Podcast, the singer recalls having high expectations that big men would notice him in service and hand him money.

Don Jazzy recalled his childhood hustler days with his deceased mother, saying, “I remember it like it was yesterday.

“I remember sitting down with my mom frying akara there, sitting on the bench there in Ajegunle, and any big man that passes by with their Peugeot 504 or Mercedes 230 or whatever, and they come to buy akara.

“I also remember the thought in my head, ‘I wish this man would just look at me and go, ‘Young boy, just take this, I know that you need it’, or something like that.”

Don Jazzy went on to say that his humble beginnings have always motivated him to offer assistance to people in need and that he could relate to everyone who was struggling and was inspired to help them.
