'How Don Jazzy changed my life' - T.O.C

Below is a mail I got from 19 year old Tochi Oyeoku
My name is Tochy Oyeoku (TOC). am an upcoming singer student in Bells University. When I left my house for EME album launch party at club deuces couple of months back, I didn't know I was going to meet my break through. I met Don Jazzy and we spoke for a bit and he asked me to give him a call so we can continue our discussion some other time. His private number was like a huge asset for me, I crammed it immediately and saved it on my two phones, I kept on calling and sending text messages, so sad no one was picking, no text was replied either. At a stage I lost all hope and continued my Under G striving.
See the rest after the cut...




One blessed day I was about to doze off when my phone started vibrating. I almost ignored the call to get back to whoever it is when I wake up, looking on my phone screen I saw "don jazzy" you needed to have seen how I sat up at once, the sleep flew away like a bird that escaped from her cage. I booked an appointment and went to his house.

What a wonderful mansion? I said as I stepped into his compound. He asked me to play my works, afterwards he complained I sound like Wizkid and Dammykrane which isn't far from what  Dr. Sid, Wande and DPrince who he said I have soo much resemblance with are doing. I pleaded to him to give me just 30 seconds to freestyle there and then in his studio, I guess he saw the zeal and desperateness in me "T.O.C am going to give you an amount of money to work with big producers in the industry" like Sarz, Samklef and J-sleek, for the past 5years I haven't been that happy. I didn't know how to start expressing my feelings, should I kneel down or lie down. The joy was just too overwhelming. I kept on saying thank you sir! I quickly dropped my account number for him. The next morning. I received an alert from Mavin Records! (don't worry about the amount ;) What more can I say? Don jazzy is a blessing am forever grateful

Now I have songs produced by Sarz, Samklef, and some other bad ass producers, one of them just dropped today produced  by Samklef. Find the song, As I Am, below...

Beautiful story to read may GOD reward the giver!! I pray people like Sunny Ade should be told to learn from this story, this is a guy who never serve DJ. Sunny Ade still had gut to tell story of how he arrested his band member of 30 years simply because he left with his guitar after informing his he wanted to be on his own. Im sure if he had given dis guy a helping hand to start off, the story would have been different to ending up a Drug Courier

This guy will be betweem 22 to 24 but not 19 he was a two set below me in secondary school the same school that produced Smash of Bracket. But this boy dad is a prof for UNN so his dad could have sponsered his music career. I guess they are not cool with his music.

It takes the grace of God to be charitable and whoever God's grace is upon, becomes the hand of God, thru which He "God" blesses His people. Don Baba J is an epitome of what i have just expressed. Don Jazzy is known for giving meaning to people's life (especially those whom providence has done marvelously well for them by bringing them in contact with Don Baba J). We know a couple of them even tho not all. Both the faithfuls and the rebels. For me o, one thing I believe is that our reward for being good is in heaven. Don Baba J for this act of love by giving hope to almost a dying dream, the God who gave Tochi the talent to sing will continue to bless you and your generations to come. As the light you are, so will your generations to come continue to radiate around everyone who comes in contact with them. And as for you Tochi, be judicious in spending whatever amount that Don Baba J gave u. U are very lucky because this is an opportunity that most of us are praying day & 9t for. I just pray dat one day, this kind of luck will smile on me so I can have my musical aspiration fulfilled. One love & more kudos to you Don Baba J and peace to u Tochi. Am a talent seeking for an avenue to explode into limelight. need support to market myself. will be ready to humble any call at any time. here is my phone contact 08030998992
