Stormrex has been on tour in the United states for the past month promoting her music and making new friends. This video is her most recent performance in houston, Texas.
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, marks exactly one year that Michael Collins Ajereh publicly decided to chart a new course for himself with the birth of Mavin Records-home to the Mavin League. It also marks his birthday.
The last 12 months have been clouded with several can he get it right alone? Would he pull it through all by himself?
When news circulated that Don Jazzy and Dbanj had split last year it was also said that he left with all Don Jazzy’s catalogue. Of course everyone thought that would be the end of him.
And considering the obvious fact that the last one year has become symbolic as one of the most trying periods for the Nigerian entertainment industry, it has also become a symbolic year in the life of the man who is now known and well referred to as Don Jazzy.
Not many had given him the slightest opportunity to prove his worth-accusations were flying around-but Don Jazzy remained resolute, determined and undeterred in his decision to break even with the MAVINS. Don Jazzy has successfully remained relevant, steadfastly cooking up beats-as much as he can, churning out productions that has left the music industry in a state of frenzy. He has bounced back from scratch!
Has he succeeded? That varies largely on your definition of success but with over a dozen hit productions this year-Take Banana, Oma Ga, Amarachi, Goody Bag, Kick, Without my heart, Rotate, Lady Don Dada- in the last one year, one can only pat the beefy producer on the back for daring to dare and standout! He has bounced back from scratch!
From Tiwa Savage to Wande Coal, D’Prince and Dr. Sid, it’s obvious that Don Jazzy has structured a way out for himself and his league of Mavins.
However, only few people want to understand the obvious fact that the 31 year old music producer, whose wizardry has become one of the most talked about revolutions in the Nigerian music industry, remains the regular man who can be caught tweeting on popular micro-blogging network site, Twitter, as Don Jazzy, or the young man that has decided to give back to that major society that has consistently supported him. Without attracting undue possession, the term, IDJA (It’s Don Jazzy Again) became one of Nigeria’s most trending and popular 4-letter word on Twitter.
Although mystery remains his strongest point, Don Jazzy, has left Nigerians-in Nigeria and its diaspora- wondering who and where he hails from.
Michael Collins Ajereh was born on November 26, 1982.A Nigerian Multi award-winning record producer, singer-songwriter, musician, former CEO of Nigerian record label Mo' Hits Records founded in 2004 and current CEO of the Mavin Records label which he founded in May 2012
In his kitty, Don Jazzy prides himself as a Voice, Fashion and Social Networking guru, Mo'Hits/ G.O.O.D. Music producer, Samsung Deal, Mavin Records, Mavin League, Loya milk endorsement and an awesome production discography record.
Michael had always had a flair for music, singing and playing the drums from the age of 4. He developed a passion for the bass guitar at the age of 12, He went on to study Business Management at the Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma in Edo stat before he moved to London in the United Kingdom in 2000 after his uncle invited him to come play the drums for the neighborhood Church.
Various odd jobs followed including working at McDonalds and as a security guard. Already imbued with an intimate knowledge of traditional and percussion instruments, Don Jazzy further built on his musical knowledge during his UK stint. Finding fellow kindred spirits in the likes of Solek, JJC, The 419 squad and D’Banj, the gang would spend unrelenting hours practicing, recording and performing different types of music.
Jazzy’s appetite for a full-time career in music could no longer be satiated when, in 2004, he partnered with D’Banj to set up the Mo' Hits label. Within two years, the prolific producer had wrapped up two albums (No Long Thing and Rundown/Funk You Up) with his former Mo' Hits partner and was working on a third, Curriculum Vitae. By this time, he had already started becoming a household name with the trademark intro – It’s Don Jazzy Again!
In 2008 there were further production credits for the best selling album of that year; The Entertainer Don Jazzy repeated the trick with Wande Coal’s Mushin 2 MoHits, an album that was described as one of the best albums to ever come out of Nigeria
Although not acknowledging himself as a recording artist, he is responsible for doing most Background Vocals for Artists he produces for and sometimes does complete verses. His musical dexterity can be heard through his beats and well calculated vocals he assists to the likes of D'Banj, Sauce Kid, Dr SID, Ikechukwu, Kween, D'Prince and even Jay-Z and Kanye West on their Watch The Throne track Lift Off, featuring Beyoncé.
In 2011 his talents got him noticed by Kanye West who signed him up as a producer on his GOOD Music label.With over a 100 production tracks to his name, the understated genius has worked with a host of local and international celebrities. In spite of his whirlwind superstardom, Don Jazzy has never forgotten his humble beginnings.
On the wake of the split up of Mohits, Samsung unveiled their "Built for Africa" products and Don Jazzy was signed on as their spokes person.
On May 8 2012, Don Jazzy said, “The way forward now is to make sure I keep bringing you guys more of the beautiful music you all love to dance to,” He kept his promise of a new beginning, as he announced the birth of Mavin Records.
The multiple award winning producer and philanthropist has activated several fans with several music productions and hit songs leaving It’s Don Jazzy Again, IDJA on the lips of every one that matters. It’s a year now and needless to say Don Jazzy the internationally acclaimed producer,Nigerian multi award winning producer,singer,song writer,CEO Mavins record label, endorsements from Samsung and Loya, philanthropist is in it to win it and he is here to stay! Happy Birthday IDJA!

Many things have been said about Tonto Dikeh recently, especially about
her singing ability. As we all know Tonto Dikeh, who got famous on TV
screen, as an actress has dabbed into singing; this development has
created a lot of controversies for her.
Her sudden jump into music rather than continue her acting points to a
simple fact that she is just trying to remain relevant. She is
interested in nothing but fame (and perhaps controversies). Recently, a
lot of people’s complaints include her in ability to sing reasonable
songs but whack songs she sings, which went viral on the internet due to
the unbelievable and unimaginable tones and rhythms packed into what she
called her songs. He releases (songs) has gone beyond not interesting
but became the first ear infectious song (otherwise known as
Late last year Tonto Diken drop her debut single HI + iTZova Feat Snypa
which was also premiere on outof9ja.com and many notable blog site in
Nigeria and around the globe. The debut single cause a lot of uproar in
the media, although, a lot of people voices were mute but they took to
social network media such as twitter, facebook and the rest to show
their anger at what they considered ear-damaging song.
The No Nonsense Diva, didn’t let the criticism put her off, without
prelude she threw Jeje on our faces, produce by Jospo and Mix by a close
family friend Indomix. As if Jeje was not enough she was all and again
in studio session with some notable artists and in no time she featured
the one and only Akpako master of the industry Terry G on Crazically
Fit. This is where I started to think to myself; “here we go again”. I
said to myself; “the craziest Man in the music industry and the
Kolomental Diva in the movie industry came out with something called
Crazically Fit, how could this be real? What a match and what concept do
they join together?” I couldn’t wait to listen to the song. Listen and
watching the video, I wasn’t disappointed, rather my instinct told me
that Tonto Diken is not here to play she is here to tell us what we
In February when Tonto Diken drop Jeje Artwork through her twitter
account, which was premiere on 1st March, news went viral that she was
ready to come out once again with another whack song, which I couldn’t
but also agreed. In spite of the danger to my ears, I was actually ready
anyway as a blogger to post the song and probably listen to it when it
was finally released. While listening, I notice the beat was produced
and Mixed by one of the best in the country, Jospo and Idomix
respectively. That was when I started thinking that yes this Diva means
business and I think she’s getting there.
Early this month Tonto was at AY life show, a show she got a round of
applause from more than thousands people at the end of her performance,
if that’s not her first stage performance but the noticeable one, she
sang all her singles, including Jeje which was mere response to those
who have being criticizing her for her musical talent. I think in all,
this Tonto is improving and telling us what she can do, I read an
article some weeks back where the writer said ‘‘Tonto Dikeh must be
stopped”. No way! I’m sorry to say this but she can’t be stopped, Tonto
Is Famous, She has everything a list Nigerian artist has, she might not
be good as some of them but she has what its required to be a top artist
and she’s proofing this.
Famous – she’s already famous among the household because of her acting
Controversial – Yes she is, media and we blogger won’t let her go, we
post her tweet if she insult anyone and this are what keeping people
like Tonto on the spotlight.
She has once said that Don Baba J, [Don Jazzy] popular Nigeria producer
and CEO Marvin Records is her ex, if this is true or not or just public
stunt but there are connection in between them and if she want advice
how to improve her music career people like Don Jazzy can help her.
Yesterday, Don Jazzy also agree with me; tweeted Tonto ”Talent is a raw
material,yhu have processed it madam!”
Talent is a raw material,yhu have processed it madam! @TONTOLET
