“If A Producer Says He Wants To Sleep With You, Call Him Out” – Don Jazzy Tells Female Singers
Veteran Nigerian music producer, Don Jazzy has shown empathy for female singers who are faced with more challenges in the entertainment industry than their male counterparts.
In an interview with BBC, the 36-year-old producer made his thought known as he revealed that sex is often demanded from many female singers by music producers and TV personalities.
According to Don Jazzy, he can testify to this because he has a record label and male and female artists dominate his record label.
He further revealed that in the past, maybe I had the opportunity to go through a female artiste’s phone and read conversations that the female artists had had with a bunch of producers, TV people, people in the industry.. everybody just wants s.e.x. It’s tiring. I feel sorry for them.
According to him, the system is flawed and needs to be fixed, hence, parents should do better raising the male child.
He said, “We need to fix the system in general. We need to train the male child better.”
As an alternative solution, Don Jazzy said that female artists should publicly expose music producers and media personalities who demand sex in exchange for a favor.
“If these young ladies start calling them out, that’s a start. If a producer says he wants to sleep with you, call him out!”
