Timaya revealed his admiration for Nigerian producer and singer, Don Jazzy.
Nigerian producer and record label executive, Don Jazzy is one of the most respected Nigerian entertainers. He is respected by almost everyone in the Nigerian entertainment circle due to his humility and simplicity.
These factors have now been reiterated by Nigerian dancehall star, Timaya, whose viral song, “I Concur”, with the producer has pushed him back up on the musical scale.
Timaya, speaking with NotJustOk, stated that, “There is just only one collabo I have ever done in my life that till today, I appreciate the artiste, I respect the artiste more even after we did the collabo is Don Jazzy.
Like this ‘I Concur’ song I just did, I only called Don Jazzy, I had finished doing the song and I was in my studio, I said ‘if I put Don Jazzy on this song, it will be nice’ I did not even have his number, so I had to call Skales my boy, and he was able to get me a number that led to calling Don Jazzy. He was busy so I sent him a text to call back and he called back. Me and Don Jazzy we dey close o.”
Timaya also revealed that Don Jazzy didn’t let his ego get in the way of their collaboration as he displayed great commitment to the project even though they didn’t have any previous relationship.
Speaking further, Timaya said,
“The project took us seven days and on the fourth day we shot the videos. I put out pictures and next thing the song came out but even at the video shoot when we went I just told him that Jazzy na this time be the video shoot o.
I was even thinking that I was going to suffer the stress of the way some artistes dey do, but Don Jazzy we even on set before me because I was worried about the costumes he was going to wear and he was so patient and stayed you know what, my mindset about that dude just changed, I fell in love with that dude sincerely from my heart. He is not my friend,….lots of respect to him,” he added.
