It has emerged that Don Jazzy, singer and chief executive of Mavin records, is not happy at the wide coverage given by the media to his donation of N2million to Funmi Lawal, a law student diagnosed with malignant sarcoma.
Lawal’s story made the headlines on August 20, 2012, with many soliciting help for her to stay alive. The cost of her full medical treatment was put at N4m. Don Jazzy donated half of it.
According to a source, the said sum was donated in Mavin Record’s name and the ace producer is surprised his name came up in the matter
“Don Jazzy is really sad that the donation was made public. You know it is not his style to talk about such thing in public,” the source said. That donation was made in the name of Mavin records and that is why he is wondering why and how his name popped up in the matter”.
“His decision to help out the sick lady was born out his desire to help out the needy once in a while. If you go to his twitter handle and facebook, you’d think its a market place as the pages are covered with thousands of requests from persons asking for all manners of assistance.”
In recent times, Don Jazzy has shown philanthropic tendencies.
