The Revelation: Don Jazzy Net Worth 2019 and Biography
What is Don Jazzy net worth in 2019 have you ever been asked that question before? But here is the good thing I will answer that for you today.
Don Jazzy net worth 2019 is $20.8 million and if you convert Don J worth from dollars to Naira, that’s like 7.262 billion Naira.
One of the reasons I love to write about the net worth of these celebrities is because I love the sound of riches. I mean if you are rich you can be a force of good.
I grew up believing that money is bad, power is bad… but little did I know that was somebody else’s thoughts that have been implanted into my subconscious.
Luckily I found T Harv Eker‘s the Secret of the Millionaire Mind.
I read the book over and over again and I realize that most of our thoughts do not support us.
The truth is I admire the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Mr P, Rudeboy Tiwa Savage and others.
You know why?
Because success does not just come to you, you have to go in there and take it.
I suggest you read that book, trust me it will change your perception about rich people.
Because in Africa most especially the Nigerians, you and I have this belief system that’s so flawed.
We believe that money makes people wicked but that’s a total misconception.
I really think that money doesn’t make people wicked. as a matter of fact, money amplify who you already are on the inside.
It’s that simple right!
Take for example if you are good and you become wealthy, like super wealthy. Do you automatically just become bad because you are now wealthy?
The answer is no you don’t, but rather because you are already good on the inside. you will be good on the outside.
Here is one of my favorite quote from the book I talked about…
“What you are on the inside is what you produce on the outside.”
In a nutshell…
You can’t be good on the inside and then bad on the outside. It doesn’t work like that. It’s as simple as you being a product of whatever you are on the inside.
True Life Hilarious Story
I started this whole story by telling you that I admire the rich people right?
Well, I think these guys totally beat me there because I can’t even imagine two grown-up guys. fighting because of the net worth of Nigerian musicians.
I went for a walk one evening only for me to run into these two guys on a heated argument….
Please ask me what the argument was about…
I will tell you!
The whole argument spun from Davido and Wizkid net worth who is the richest?
I mean that was all, one said it’s Davido, the other said it’s Wizkid.
I was like what the hell is wrong with these two guys… Pick up your damn phone and ask Google(I said silently)
Big G has the answer to everything you can think of, so why wasting your saliva debating this…
Can you believe that these two guys didn’t even know to do a simple Google search.
I was like you have got to be kidding me, in 2019?
So there are still some persons that don’t know what a search engine is. and how they can perform a simple search?
The two of them noticed me watching and one quickly said
“Bros abeg Wizkid and Davido who get money pass” the above question was asked in Pidgin English.
I will translate for you just in case you do not understand Pidgin English.
The question the guy asked me is;
Wizkid and Davido who is the richest?
I simply smiled because I felt like these guys are going to drag me into this argument.
You know what I did?
I brought out my phone and perform a simple keyword search by typing it into the address bar…
Whoola, there it was staring at them on the face. funny thing is between number one to ten, there was Don Jazzy net worth in Dollars.
Just like that I helped settle their little misunderstanding, each of them thanked me, both took the left turn and left.
As I was walking by the road I then decided that I will do a post about the net worth of the two. while comparing their worth but simply for educational purposes.
Eventually, I did that a month back and I am here telling you the story today.
Life really is a series of moments and if you are bold and certain enough, you get what you want from it.

If you follow these principles, you will succeed and have your name written in history too. like MJ, Whitney Houston, Jay Z and Beyonce.
First, you have to put in the work, I see too many people thinking that life is just something you toil with. It’s not and often at times, you and I realize this only when it’s too late.
But wait there’s more

I like to call him “The Man Without an Album” or better still “The Nigerian musician without an album”
The singer favorite Genre of Music is Afro-pop, African hip hop.

Don Jazzy history and biography is one that is particularly interesting because of how he started out.
I will take you to his early beginnings in this subheading below so stick with me now will you?
Early Life of Michael Collins Ajereh
If you really want to discuss Don Jazzy biography and net worth then you will need to. talk about his early life too right?
Well, that’s what I am about to give you. His flair for music came while he was 12 years old.
But he isn’t the first, I like to say he discovered his a bit late compared to Tekno Miles.
Tekno developed interest in music at the age of six that’s like 6 years before the Mavin boss did.
The one thing I really like about Don Jazzy is his voice.
I mean that thick bass is just phenomenal and the way he uses it is magically flawlessly.
While The man with no album was younger, he learned how to play bass guitar. But most notable is his love for a traditional percussion instrument.
Dan Lok will say develop yourself in a way that you become so super hot that there’s no one to compete.
That’s exactly what JDD did and having developed skills in musical instruments, in 2000, he got a call to the UK.
That one na abroad connect o!
… This call came from MCA‘s uncle in the UK and it is so that he could go over to play an instrument in a local church.
During an interview, when Don Jazzy was asked to tell a brief story about his humble beginning he said:
While I was in the United Kingdom playing drum for the local church, I also quickly took. the opportunity to apply for a security job at Mc Donald.
There I walked as a security officer before then I had already Learnt how to produce music from Emeka Infiniti at O-record company.
one skill added to another and another can make you quite worthy of being called the real deal.
Kanye West Hired JDD
I have been using JDD and MCA a lot so what does it mean?
JDD means Jazzy De Don and MCA means Michael Collins Ajereh.
So when next you see it in this post, just know it’s an acronym of Don Jazzy’s names.
In mid-2011 Kanye West who recently said he has a Bipolar Disorder employed Don Jazzy. to work as a producer at very Good Beatz.
During his brief spell at very good Beatz, he did songs with Jay Z who is currently the first black rapper to become a billionaire.
Don Jazzy worked on Beyonce lift Off single from the album “Watch the Throne”. while featuring her husband and Kanye West.
How He Met D’banj and Formation of Mohits Record
While MCA was still in London he met several Naija musicians like X project. and among these names was D’banj aka Koko master.
Together It’s Don Jazzy again and Koko master teamed to create Mo’hits record.
As a Co-founder of Mohits DJ signed artist Dr Sid who is the son of late Nigeria actor Justice Esiri.
Mohits birth Wande Coal, D’ Prince and notably D’banj.
Under Mo’hits record, D’banj first album was released, consequently his Rundown-Funk you up was also dropped.
Curriculum Vitae is D’banj 3rd album under Mohits but the pair later broke up after a rift.
When D’banj abandoned Mo hits to go solo Mavin records was formed.
But first, here are some of the major album from Mohits.
Mohits Albums and Singles

Formation of Mavin Records
Mavin Records was formed in May precisely on the 7th 2012 and during an interview with silver Bird.
Don J was recorded as saying that Mavin records will go on to be one of the best record label. in Africa as a whole.
7 years after, you can beat your chest and say that he is damn right when he said that…
Don Jazzy net worth Forbes 2019 even estimated the label to be worth a billionaire Naira.
In the new era of Mavin, you and I saw artists like Tiwa Savage who is now signed to UMG, Reekardo Banks, Wande Coal who left after issues with Don Jazzy, Korede Bello Di’ja, Dr Sid and more.
One of the hit tracks by the Mavin crew was Dorobucci.
The song featured all of Mavin crew and it was wildly accepted by Nigerians all over the country.
Heck, there were even T-shirts printed with name Dorobucci on it…
and in Nigeria, if a song goes as far as to make a print on shirts then know that song was lit.
Some other singles by Mavin crew to follow in the footprint of Dorobucci is Adaobi and Ganta-Marta.
Just recently after the likes of Tiwa Savage, Reekardo Banks, Wande Coal have left Mavin, the boss. and businessman unveiled his new stars.
I mean the new faces of Mavin that will usher the label into a new era.
One of the most insightful ways he did that was through a song Mavin all is in order.
which is a song telling everyone to stay calm that the label big names might be gone. but he’s still got aces up his sleeves.
All is in order is currently trending really fine, I mean that song alone sent me more than. 200 visitors alone from big G.
How many artists are there in Mavin records currently?
There are 4 artists signed to Mavin records currently. Below are The New Mavin Crew 2019
- Korede Bello
- DNA Twins
While it is one thing to be a producer, it’s another to be a Marketer. and you can’t be a producer and a Marketer all at the same time, right?
Which is why In 2012 Mavin boss Created Mavin League to help increase his brand awareness as a marketing strategy.
Owning your own record label is awesome right?
But just what if it becomes a ghost?
This is why you need a brand marketing expert to create your brand awareness.
When you ask questions like who is the richest Musician in Nigeria, be sure when I say Don Jazzy name will be there.
How Much is Don Jazzy Net Worth
Don Jazzy is worth $20.8 million in 2019 making him the 3rd richest musician in Nigeria. If you convert Don Jazzy net worth to Naira, it’s 7.262 billion Naira.
This figure puts behind the Davido and Wizkid who both have a net worth of $24 million. and 22.5 million respectively.
But Like everything else before you and I can draw a complete estimate of how much Don Jazzy is worth. let’s first look at things like his houses and cars.
In general, let’s look at Don Jazzy asset 2019.
Buying luxurious and houses are the dream of every upcoming celebrity right?
So what about people like the doroboss what does an asset mean for him?
Like it or not but you have to understand that luxurious cars and houses are assets.
But quickly what’s the definition of net worth?
Well, net worth is all of a person’s asset minus all the debt he owes. Having said that, let’s look at the cost of some of Don Jazzy cars and houses.
Don Jazzy Houses
Before Rudeboy and Mr P split, the square villa was the biggest mansion owned by any Nigeria celebrity.
So, how many houses does Don Jazzy have?
Don J has 3 houses!
But let’s look at the cost of each of the houses one after the other. but first here is a list of Michael Collins Ajereh houses.
- Don Jazzy House in banana Highland
- Don J House in Lekki
- His house in Nicon
Don Jazzy House in banana Highland
One of the first things a man fights for is having a roof over his head, and if any of the stories. about banana Highland are true, it will be that it’s a Highland were the rich rob shoulders.
Among the rich is you can count Don Jazzy as one of the wealthy in the country.
According to the ranking of African richest artist Forbes 2018, Don Jazzy was ranked 39th most influential musician in Africa.
Such ranking does not just come if you ain’t worth anything you know. and having managed two record labels and several artists, you can say it’s a title well deserving.
Michael Collins Ajereh banana island home cost an estimated figure of $150,000.
If you convert this figure to Naira, you will have N54,000,000.
I mean 54 million Naira isn’t the sort of cash you pick by the roadside right?
So what about his second home?
Don Jazzy House in Lekki
The house in Lekki is mainly used as office… but with 8 bedroom flats, the beauty is second none.
Having a house outside Lagos feels more like a getaway and there was this one time. when JDD didn’t come back.
Had to look around for him only to be found in one of the rooms in the office building.
When asked why she chose to stay back rather than go home his answer was sleek.
“I have 8 bedrooms with clothes, good food and everything you can think.
But the major reason I decided to stay back was that I have a lot of job around the city.
The house in Lekki is valued at around $160,000.
Since I am a Nigerian, I love converting these figures to Naira so that you have a feel of the. actual amount both in Naira and in dollars.
The total cost of the house is N57. 3 million
Don Jazzy Fleet of Cars
Don Jazzy is one of those singers with a good taste and his fleet of cars if anything proves that…
Below I will list each of his cars and how much they are worth in dollars and in Naira.
Don Jazzy cars in dollars
- Porche Carrera worth $70,000
- Bentley worth $50,000

I can only imagine that the Net worth of Don Jazzy will continue to rise even in 2020.
considering he is a very strategic businessman, I am predicting that come 2020 Don Jazzy net worth 2019 would be a thing of the past.
This is because as a businessman most of your goals and investment is planned in order to increase your worth.
I was on a YouTube video some days back when I saw Jack the owner of Alibaba.com, I mean this guy has 102 years of goals.
Each goal set is geared at making him not just an extra dollar but millions and millions of dollars.
What do you think happens then?
That more money and more money equals an increasing net worth assuming what he owes isn’t bigger than his assets.
The one thing that’s amazing about Don J is how strategic he has been so far with Mavin record label.
I could remember telling a brother of mine during the first time DNA twin was unveiled.
I had told him that 3 years from when the current Mavin crew are gone. JDD would be preparing another team of youngsters to usher the label to a whole different stage.
Fast forward to 2019, my prophecy came to pass. but I didn’t just say those words right?
I said those words because I saw an Entrepreneurial spirit in him.
Well, let’s take a look at Don Jazzy awards and Endorsements deals, shall we?
