During the early exchanges in the interview, Ebuka asked Don Jazzy about the veracity of his upbringing in Ajegunle, and he replied, “My parents [sheltered us from the realities of Ajegunle]. I won’t say my Ajegunle is Daddy Showkey’s Ajegunle, obviously. I don’t know how we’re related, but we’re related… My dad knows how we’re related, he’s my senior bros.”
Ebuka also asked Don Jazzy why he and Showkey never collaborated musically, and he replied saying, “it just hasn’t happened. Now that I have come back to producing, maybe… Why not? Nothing is impossible.”
