Michelle Jackson, the ex-wife of ace Nigerian music producer, Don Jazzy, has opened up about their failed marriage, revealing why their union crashed after two years.
Michelle Jackson Speaks On Marriage To Don Jazzy
During an interview with Naija FM, the United Kingdom-based model who returned to Nigeria in late April, 2022, revealed she married the music producer just one week after her 22nd birthday.
Michelle said they met in the club while Don Jazzy’s music group was sharing their flier. She looked at the flier and thought Don Jazzy looked cool so a friend of hers who knows Don Jazzy got her his phone and she typed in her number.
Don Jazzy called her later and she invited him to her home. That was the start of their relationship, which then led to marriage.
When asked why their marriage crashed, the model said that music “got in the way” of their union, adding that they were both really young and were both in the music industry.
Michelle said, “Don Jazzy is music, and I said to him many times, he’s not just got a talent, he’s got a special gift. And he just needed to go and be himself and go and do his music.
“Music got in the way of the relationship. We were very young as well. If I were in the same situation now, it might have been very different.”
Michelle, who was also a singer, noted that she and Don Jazzy were both pursuing their music careers at the same time, adding that things became different when popular Nigerian singer, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skills, discovered her ex-husband.
She said, “We were both pursuing their music careers at the same time and then he got discovered by JJC Skillz. So it took him out of the home a lot more.
“I tried to put my music on the back burner to try and balance my home life. But he was ‘very’ into the music and it kind of got into the way.”
