What I learnt from Don Jazzy – Korede Bello


Nigerian singer and songwriter, Korede Bello, has revealed an important lesson he learnt from the CEO of Mavin Records, Don Jazzy, and how it made a huge impact on his singing career.

The 25-year-old, who’s been signed to Mavin Records since 2014, said Don Jazzy taught him that “if one really wants to grow, one has to be genuinely interested in helping other people grow.”

Waxing philosophical, the singer also dismissed suggestions, Don Jazzy was not paying attention to his development and career, saying: “There is a verse in the Holy Bible that says, “Unless the Lord builds a house, the builders labour in vain. I have trust in God’s plan for me because He is the Master builder and orchestrator.”

Best known for his semi-gospel and pop hit single, “Godwin”, Bello described music-making as his “lifestyle”, adding that he has “a lot of unreleased songs.”

“Whenever I feel the time is right, I would give my people (fans) a proper project. By the way, have you listened to my last Extended Play album, “Table For Two”. There are beautiful songs in there, even if I say so myself,” he said in a PUNCH interview.

In the last one year, Bello said he had had to re-strategise and come up with Micasa Sucasa after the coronavirus pandemic stopped his planned road due to travel restrictions imposed by countries.

“I had decided to go on road touring last year (2020). I had just introduced my fans to the newly rebranded Korede Bello but COVID-19 started before we could hit the road. So, we had to re-strategise and I came up with Micasa Sucasa (which means ‘my house is your house’). With the help of Tik Tok, I was able to target a global virtual audience,” he said.

On one thing he would love to change, Bello said: “I would like to drop the habit of procrastination and master the habit of awareness— the ability to live in the moment and be satisfied with the will of God.”
