Nigerian record producer and musician Michael Collins Ajereh, known professionally as Don Jazzy, has explained why he is not ready to marry even at age 38.
According to the wealthy entrepreneur, he fell in love with his first wife (Michelle Jackson, a UK-based model, writer and fashion brand ambassador) at age 20 and proceeded to marry her thereafter.
However, since she was young and immature, he made grave mistakes, shun his responsibilities and did not perform his role as a husband well. Therefore, after 2 years, his marriage collapsed…they divorced.
Sharing photos of his wedding day and the joy that preceded every step on the way, Don Jazzy said he wished his marriage had last longer than it did and he believes he is the cause of it all.
Writing an emotional note on Instagram, Don Jazzy said he gave all his attention to music which led to the eventual downfall of his marriage thus he believes he is not in the position to move into marriage anytime soon especially when he knows he is still married (technically) to his music.

For so long everyone keeps asking me when am I getting married? Well truth is almost 18 years ago I was 20 and I got married to my best friend Michelle @yarnstaswitch and it was beautiful.
I loved love and I loved marriage. Michelle is soooo beautiful inside and outside with such a soft heart. But then me being so young and full of dreams I went and fucked it up cos I was giving all my time to my Music.
Music became priority instead of my family. We got divorced when I was 22 and it hurt. I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and fuck it up again.
So I’m taking my time. Why am I just saying this now?? I really like to keep my relationships private actually. Past or present. But I was watching the bounce interview with Ebuka which is almost like a tell all interview, and I felt bad skipping this huge part of my life. So yeah make una no vex o. 🏃🏿♂️🏃🏿♂️🏃🏿♂️
