Why I turn down public speaking invitations – Don Jazzy
Don Jazzy, a popular music producer, singer and record label executive, has revealed that he is usually uneasy whenever he is in the midst of a crowd.
The Mavin Records boss made this revelation while speaking during an interview with a media personality, Hawa Magaji, he said, “I am not supposed to be an artiste. I and the camera don’t agree. However, I am better now. I actually prefer social media platforms such as Tiktok and Instagram. I turn down public speaking invitations all the time. If the people in the room are just about 20 or 30 people, and it is a question-and-answer session, I can do it. I don’t even like going live on Instagram.”
On what he looks out for before signing an artiste to his label, Don Jazzy said, “I look out for talent, luck, preparation, and being at the right place at the right time. Showcasing yourself is also important, even after someone discovers you.”
When asked if he sometimes feels bad about being taken advantage of, he said, “(American rapper) Kanye West says if you cannot use somebody and somebody cannot use you, you are useless. I am grateful that I can be used actually. That means I am valuable enough to be used for something. I feel like if people can reach out to me for something that they need; it means I am valuable.”
