The Mavin Records boss has been doing well as people continue to pray for him and his family during this trying time. He announced his mother’s passing in the very early hours of Saturday, July 23, 2022.

On Friday, October 7th, 2022, the award-winning producer shared a reflection on his Instagram page about how social media has strained many ties, a lesson he learnt when it came time to compile a list of family members who were meant to attend his mother’s funeral. He stated: Learnt a valuable lesson recently about how as much we think we see each other all the time on social media, we are actually so distant from each other. We are so out of touch with how our loved ones are really doing. We don’t call enough anymore to check up on ourselves. GOD forbid the only time we get to do that is when something bad happens. We can do better. So we made a beautiful song that could help you get in touch. This is a just a start.

Coincidentally, Johhny Drille, a signee of Don Jazzy, is ready to release a song that the Maestro created. The song, “How Are You My Friend,” focuses on making a conscious effort to check in on loved ones, which aligns with the important lesson Don Jazzy learned after his mother passed away. It is slated for release on Wednesday, October 12th, 2022. May she rest in peace with her soul.
