igerian record producer, Michael Collins Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy, has slammed people who condemn housemates in ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) “Level Up” edition for flirting.
He pointed out that flirting with two or three people happens everyday in different homes, noting that the difference is the presence of cameras in Biggie’s house.
Don Jazzy, who is the founder and the CEO of Mavin Records, shared his thoughts via his official Twitter page.
He wrote: “All these everybody toasting everybody, flirting with everybody vibing with 2 or 3 people at the same time happens every day, but we just don’t live in the same house with cameras watching every move.”
TheNewsGuru.com reports that Don Jazzy was co-owner of the now-defunct Mo’ Hits Records record label with D’banj.

Don Jazzy married Michelle Jackson in 2003.
He claims they both had issues as a result of his ambitious nature and subsequently divorced about two years after they wed.
However, Don Jazzy does not plan to marry again soon because he fears his love and dedication to music will hurt someone’s feelings again.
