Finally it is out. But when it did, it took Twitter streets unawares and left many Nigerians in shock.
Nigeria’s lord of music and one of the most eligible bachelors in Nigeria, Michael Collins Ajereh , known as Don Jazzy was once married when he was 20 years old and divorced two years later.
Breaking the 18 year silence was Don Jazzy himself on Twitter when he revealed he allowed his passion for music to destroy his marriage with his best friend.
” For so long everyone keeps asking me when am I getting married? Well truth is almost 18 years ago, i was 20 and got married to my best friend Michelle and it was beautiful. I loved love and i loved marriage.
” Michelle was so beautiful inside and outside with such a soft heart,” Jazzy tweeted.
But that was the end of the fairytale as Jazzy admitted he messed up the marriage by putting his music before marriage and they got divorced two years later.
“But then me so young and so full of dreams, i went and. f@@#* it up because I was giving all my time to my music.
” Music became priority instead of .y family. We got divorced when. I was 22 and it hurt,” Jazzy said.
Meanwhile, Nigerians are fixing kudos to DBanj and Wande Cole, two of Jazzys’ earliest associates who knew about his failed marriage and despite a bitter separation refused to divulge the secrets.
They are also praising the wife who according to Jazzy is married now with a child for not saying a word about her marriage to the musical maestro.
Meanwhile, the two are still very much in touch according to Jazzy.
