Don Jazzy, Mavin boss, has taken a deep walk into his childhood days capping with nostalgic feelings.

Jazzy narrated that he and his brother left early in the morning to carry agidi for their mother before they left for school.

He recalled that he grew up in Ajegunle where he helped his father do some farm work and also sold akara (bean cakes) for his mother.

The ace music producer spoke about his childhood days during a Black Box Interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. The beatmaker further mentioned that at the age of 11, they moved to Egbeda.

He said, “My growing up was amazing, beautiful. I grew up in two places, Ajegunle and Egbeda. First, Ajegunle, I was born in Ajegunle. I moved to Egbeda when I was about 11 years old.

“My memories of Ajegunle include four or five things. School, which was primary school; come back home, follow my dad to the farm, which was at the back of the house, then come back in the night, join my mum who sells akara in the front of the house. Then in the morning, my brother and I would go and carry agidi.

“We used to go and carry it from the woman that my mother ordered it from. They used to make it early in the morning; so, it is hot and still like pap. We would bring it back home before it turned to agidi (like eko) then we went to school,’’ Don Jazzy narrated.
