Early Life And Childhood

The leader of the Supreme Mavin Dynasty (Mavin Records), Don Jazzy, was born on November 26th, 1982 at Umuahia in Abia State, Nigeria. His real birth name is Michael Collins Ajereh.

Ajereh’s family are Isoko by tribe and from Delta State through their mum, an Igbo Princess is from Umuahia, Don Jazzy’s birthplace.

After some time, the family moved to Lagos and lived at Ajegunle where the young talent grew up. While in Lagos, he studied at the Federal Government College and later moved to Ambrose Ali University, Edo State, where he got Admission to study business management studies.

Journey Into Music And His Rise To Limelight

As early as the age of 12, Mavin’s boss developed a strong interest in music and started learning how to play musical equipment everywhere he went. It wasn’t long before he learned how to play drums and bass guitar very very well.

Due to how good he was at playing drums, in the year 2000, his Uncle who was living in London then invited him to come and stay with him. His purpose was to get the young Ajere to play drums at his local church in London.

While in London the young man worked at different places including security at McDonald’s.Although he was gainfully employed over there in London, he never abandoned his interest in music and soon started learning how to produce good music.

It was over there he came in contact with fellow aspiring musicians then like D’banj, Kass, JJC, Solek, etc.

After some time, the duo of Jazzy and D’banj returned to Nigeria and started Mo’Hits Records in 2014.
