Don Jazzy’s Mother’s Death Inspires Hit Song- Johnny Drille

In a recent interview with Hip TV, Johnny Drille, the renowned Nigerian artist also known as John Ighodaro, shared the inspiration behind his popular track ‘How Are You My Friend’. He revealed that the passing of Don Jazzy’s mother, who happens to be his record label boss, served as the catalyst for the song. Johnny Drille further mentioned that he collaborated with Don Jazzy in writing the song, emphasizing that it was the Mavin boss who initially conceived the idea.

He said, “For ‘How Are You My Friend’, the inspiration behind it was, Don Jazzy has just lost his mum like a couple of weeks prior.

“I guess, maybe this [the song] was his own way of talking about it because a lot of people were reaching out to him that he has not heard from like years. So, it just kind of hit him that, ‘Omo, I actually have these many friends that I have not spoken with for so long.’

“I also think that we are also in pretty touch times. The economy is crazy. A lot of people having it hard. A lot of people going through things in their lives that sometimes they don’t feel comfortable sharing them. And I guess, maybe that is why people have been able to connect with the song.”
