My parents' Separation Affected My Life - DJ Jimmy Jatt

Legendary Nigerian disc jockey, Jimmy
Jatt who he has made a name for himself
in the Nigerian entertainment industry
is a product of a broken home.
Jimmy Jatt told Saturday Beats that his
parents’ separation affected his life.
Read below:
He said that because he was raised in a
broken home, it motivated him to put his
home in order so that his children would
not go through some of the things he
“There are things that guide me, I am not
from this generation; so family is key to
me and I have to keep it together so that
my kids can say they grew up in a very
stable and intact family. That is very key
to me because I did not have that. I come
from a broken home and I know what
that means. I don’t want that for my kids
or anybody. The fact that I am from a
broken home has motivated me to ensure
that my family is intact because I know
how life is for a young person who comes
from a broken home. I guide against it by
all means. It affected my growing up
without a doubt even though I turned out
to be a good child. My parents would
never tell you there was a time I caused
any trouble, I was never a troublesome
kid but when you look back, you would
know that if your parents were together
and the guidance was double without
competition, things would have been
better. I know that there are certain
things which my mother did which I liked
but my father reversed such because he
did not want my mother to have her way.
“For me, family has always been the
essence at every stage and I would tell
you that when I started disc jockeying,
it’s not something that parents would
allow their children to venture into.
They thought we were the worst kind of
people; they believed we smoked, drank
alcohol and womanised. So for a very
long time even at the beginning, I made
up my mind to prove those people wrong.
I did not want my parents to regret their
decision because people would have told
them that I got into those vices because
they allowed me become a DJ. Family has
always been key,” he said
