Jazzman Olofin, Nigerian artiste — who’s been off the radar for several years — has said the deaths of OJB Jezreel, music producer and Bukky Ajayi, respected thespian, inspired him to return to music.


Jezreel, his close companion, passed away as a result of kidney-related ailment in June, after which Ajayi, his mother-in-law departed the world.

Jazzman is now set to release “Shade” and he’s also in the process of securing a deal with an international promotion company.

Olofin said: “After the loss of two of the most important people to me, their death dealt me a heavy blow but also elicited a sort of a ‘go for it’ spirit in me.”


The late OJB not only produced songs for Jazzman, but was also his closest friend.

In the last interview granted by OJB, the late music producer said he didn’t have many friends, yet listed Jazzman as his “brother”.

“I do not have many, but people have always said Jazzman is OJB’s best friend.


“For me, I’ll say we are more or less like brothers. We fight like brothers, we argue like brothers, so I think he’s about the only one with whom I’ve been able to take it beyond the regular industry friendship.”
