The heavyweight music executive revealed how the social media age has made people distant from each other.
Heavyweight Nigerian producer and music executive, Michael Collins Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, opened up about a valuable lesson he learned during his mother’s burial preparation.
The Mavin Records boss, who announced the passing of his mother in the very early hours of Saturday, July 23, 2022, has been holding up well as the public continues to pray for him and his family in this trying period.
Taking to his Instagram page on Friday, October 7th, 2022, the award-winning producer reflected on how much social media has made a lot of relationships distant, a lesson he learned when it was time to collate a list for relatives who were supposed to attend his mum’s burial. He wrote:
Learnt a valuable lesson recently about how as much we think we see each other all the time on social media, we are actually so distant from each other. We are so out of touch with how our loved ones are really doing. We don’t call enough anymore to check up on ourselves. GOD forbid the only time we get to do that is when something bad happens. We can do better. So we made a beautiful song that could help you get in touch. This is a just a start.
Coincidentally, Don Jazzy’s signee, Johhny Drille, is about to release a song produced by the Maestro. The song, titled “How Are You My Friend”, scheduled to be released on Wednesday, October 12th, 2022, dwells on making a conscious effort to check up on loved ones, which allies with the valuable lesson Don Jazzy learnt after his mum’s passing. May her soul continue to rest well.
