Popular Nigerian music executive Don Jazzy has revealed that he married eighteen years ago, when he was 20 and divorced at 22.
By posting his wedding photo to his Instagram page, the Mavin Records boss recounted how his love of music ruined his marriage to British model and writer Michelle Jackson;
“For so long, everyone keeps asking me when I’m going to get married. Well the truth is that almost 18 years ago I was 20 and I married my best friend Michelle @yarnstaswitch and it was beautiful. He loved love and he loved marriage.
Michelle is so beautiful inside and out with such a tender heart. But then, being so young and full of dreams, I went and screwed it up because I was dedicating all my time to my music.
Music became a priority instead of my family. We got divorced when I was 22 and it hurt. I’m still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry someone else and screw him over again. So I’m taking my time.
Why am I just saying this now? I really like to keep my relationships private. Past or present. But I was watching Bounce’s interview with Ebuka, which is almost like a tell-it-all interview, and I felt bad about skipping this big part of my life. So yeah, do a don’t bother one, ”he revealed.
