He is also active in the Asian music scene in the UK and performed at Forum Birmingham at The Square Shopping Centre this month.

Jaz was the most recent celebrity who was photographed dining out at Asha’s in Birmingham city centre. Earlier this month, legendary comedienne Dawn French was also seen at the celebrity hotspot - visited by Tom Cruise, Ed Sheeran, American popstar Pink, and many other celebrities.

In November 2022, Jaz had launched a fundraiser to help his brother - Harvey, who was diagnosed with cancer, just months after he became a dad. Harvey was given only six months to live.

Jaz had written on GoFundMe: “I want to give my brother the best chance of exceeding the 6 month mark and to give him the opportunity to celebrate his sons 1st birthday, spend quality time with his wife and family. At 43 years old, he still deserves a shot at living a long healthy life and to be with us as long as possible.”

The singer wanted his brother to be treated by “an innovative new immunotherapy” following his radiotherapy.

He added: “This treatment is recommended by doctors here but, unfortunately is not available in this country [the UK]. I have set up this page to raise the funds required to get Harvey this treatment in Germany to prolong his life, to make memories and enjoy his new family. He deserves to get old, he deserves to raise his son and he deserves to be with his family.”

He raised £134,109 and was able to provide the treatment for his brother. In an update in July 2023, he said: “The current condition of Harveys tumour is that it’s stable, which is great, and even though it gives us hope, it isn’t a true indication of what could really be going on. The branches of the tumour don’t appear in scans, and these are spread to areas of the brain we can’t measure.”

Harvey has beaten the six months mark and recently, joined his brother at a performance in Birmingham.

Jaz’s performance at Forum, Birmingham became extra special with his brother as the DJ. He wrote on X, formerly Twitter: “Watching this makes it feel even more real… Thank you to everybody that came out and made my brothers night special. Seeing @djHarveymusic on these decks felt unreal.” You can donate to the GoFundMe fundraiser here.
