The boss of Marvin Records, Don Jazzy, told Ebuka that he was born and brought up in Ajegunle, though that was not his last abode as he also said he later moved to Egbeda in Lagos state, when he was barely 11.
It was in the course of his stay at Egbeda that he started helping his mom to sell Akara (Bean cake) and Akamu (pap), in front of their house.
He said, "My early life can be described as beautiful and anaerobic. I had to grow up in two different places, Ajegunle and Egbeda. Though I was born in Ajegunle, but I later moved to Egbeda when I was eleven.
"The few things I can remember about Egbeda are just abiut four or five incidents. My Education, which was primary level; when I returned, I asisted my dad in the farm which was behind our house; when we were done, I would join my mom who sells 'Akara' in front of our house. When all these activities had been completed, my brother and I would walk down to fetch 'agidi' for our mom as well.
"We normally had it prepared by a woman who supplies it to us. It ws s always ready by early morning; We had to make sure it got home before it turned to agidi (just like 'eko').
When we got home, we start preparing for school. So my childhood was school - church - farm, then music".
