The Astonishing Rise of Don Jazzy’s Net Worth in 2023
Don Jazzy has carved a path in the music industry over the last three decades that has earned him a net worth of $52 million and status of richest musician in Nigeria 2023.
Mo-Hits Records, which he co-founded with Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, also known as Dbanj, contributed significantly to the accumulation of Don Jazzy’s fortune.
Nevertheless, Don Jazzy and Dbanj eventually split ways, resulting in the 2012 establishment of Mavin Records, Nigeria’s leading record company. Tiwa Savage, Wande Coal, Reekado Banks, and Iyana have made names for themselves through Mavin Records.
At the same time, Korede Bello, Dr. SID, D’Prince, Di’Ja, Johnny Drille, Ladipoe, DNA Twins, Rema, Crayon, Ayra Starr, Magixx, Boy Spynx, and Bayanni are now forerunners on the label.
While many have questioned Don Jazzy’s position as Nigeria’s richest musician, he heralds that crown with relative ease as he has found success in the Nigerian music industry in three different eras: the CD era, the download era, and the streaming era.
Don Jazzy produced the entirety of Wande Coal’s Mushin 2 Mo’ Hits, one of the best selling debut albums of all time. He also produced and co-wrote D’banj’s Oliver Twist , which is the first successful cross-border hit in Nigerian history.
In the streaming era, Rema’s Calm Down which is the most streamed Nigerian song on YouTube and Spotify, was also
released under Don Jazzy’s Mavin brand.
Being the richest musician in Nigeria, Don Jazzy has a strong interest in luxury automobiles and mansions. His car collection consists of a 2016 Cadillac Escalade, a Bentley Continental Flying Spur, a Range Rover Sport, and a Porsche 911 Carrera.
