Mo Hits Records may have split but talented producer, Michael ‘Don Jazzy’ Ajereh, still knows how to create a buzz on Twitter. On Tuesday, he caused mother luck to shine on some of his followers when he asked for their account details after they complained that they were broke. A few hours later, five lucky fans who had received deposit alerts tweeted back at him in appreciation.
One of the beneficiaries, identified as Mr. Adeyemi, claimed that the star producer sent N100, 000 to him. Another fan, @tweetlawunmi, expressed her gratitude in a tweet saying, “Thank You. Thank you! Thank You! God bless you abundantly. The gesture has spurred frenzy on Twitter, as numerous persons have been asking Jazzy for money, giving various reasons.
Although some may see this as a publicity drama, Jazzy says he is only trying to put smiles on the faces of his fans.
He says, “I do not want this to be perceived as a public relations stunt. I prefer to do my things in a quiet manner. I have sent money before but because this was on timeline it got public. It just so happened that some of them requested for money. It was on the spur of the moment and not planned at all. Many others have asked for advice, record deals and many different things, I just try and do the little I can.”
In the last few years, Don Jazzy has wormed his way into the hearts of many fans, giving out recharge cards and shopping vouchers. Such gestures may be responsible for his having almost 300,000 followers. This makes him the Nigerian celebrity with the highest number of Twitter fans, more than Asa, Genevieve, Dbanj and Wizkid. But he hints that he is not stopping yet as he already has a few account details in his Twitter message box.
