Read the mail sent to LindaIkeji by a 19 year old Tochi Oyeoku:
My name is Tochy Oyeoku (TOC). am an upcoming singer student in Bells University. When I left my house for EME album launch party at club deuces couple of months back, I didn’t know I was going to meet my break through. I met Don Jazzy and we spoke for a bit and he asked me to give him a call so we can continue our discussion some other time. His private number was like a huge asset for me, I crammed it immediately and saved it on my two phones, I kept on calling and sending text messages, so sad no one was picking, no text was replied either. At a stage I lost all hope and continued my Under G striving.
One blessed day I was about to doze off when my phone started vibrating. I almost ignored the call to get back to whoever it is when I wake up, looking on my phone screen I saw “don jazzy” you needed to have seen how I sat up at once, the sleep flew away like a bird that escaped from her cage. I booked an appointment and went to his house.
What a wonderful mansion? I said as I stepped into his compound. He asked me to play my works, afterwards he complained I sound like Wizkid and Dammykrane which isn’t far from what Dr. Sid, Wande and DPrince who he said I have soo much resemblance with are doing. I pleaded to him to give me just 30 seconds to freestyle there and then in his studio, I guess he saw the zeal and desperateness in me “T.O.C am going to give you an amount of money to work with big producers in the industry” like Sarz, Samklef and J-sleek, for the past 5years I haven’t been that happy. I didn’t know how to start expressing my feelings, should I kneel down or lie down. The joy was just too overwhelming. I kept on saying thank you sir! I quickly dropped my account number for him. The next morning. I received an alert from Mavin Records! (don’t worry about the amount 😉 What more can I say? Don jazzy is a blessing am forever grateful
Now I have songs produced by Sarz, Samklef, and some other bad ass producers, one of them just dropped today produced by Samklef. Find the song, As I Am, below…
SOmebody say Amen? Lol
