Jimmy Jatt started his entertainment career as a rapper, known as Master J. He made a lot of demos and after a fruitless search getting a record label to support him, he started work of a DJ, with the support of his brothers. They helped him establish a studio (JATT studio) and he eventually changed his stage name to DJ Jimmy Jatt, in honour of his brothers, who were called Jimmy, Amu, Tunde, and Tayo. The studio was located on strategic Odo street, which helped him reach an eager audience who took to his “deejaying” skills and hip-hop in general.
After school, He decided to take deejaying seriously, more as a profession. Apart from the fact that his brothers were in the business already, they got someone to teach him the art; back then in Obalende, a guy named Kachi was the one that eventually gave him adequate schooling on deejaying and he started developing himself from there
