Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy has lamented that his phone number is being sold to strangers who contact him just to beg for money.
He said that the trend became so rampant that he had to put his phone permanently on ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode.
According to the Mavin boss, his action should not be interpreted to mean pride or cockiness.
Don Jazzy noted that although he loved to help others, but he feared he would go broke if he gave out money to every stranger seeking assistance.
He said, “My phone is forever on ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND). I know that some people will think that I am cocky or forming but that’s not the point.
“They sell the number so people will just message me for no reason.
“When I’m in a good mood and I pick the calls and the conversation is getting longer they will tell you that they bought the number but they can’t tell you who sold it to them.
“You can lie any stupid lie and I will give you the money but if I continue that way I can go broke.”
