Just Jack didn't realise how famous Sir Elton John was when they first met.

Jack said: "I didn't really see him as anything beyond a guy I met and had a little chat to. At the time, to be honest, I wasn't that aware of the breadth of his songwriting and hadn't heard that much of it when I was young."

SIR Elton John turned casting director when he recruited actor James Nesbitt to star in a music video for British pop star Just Jack.

Just Jack: 'Elton Is No Fairy Godmother'


Just Jack Elton John

British rapper Just Jack insists his mentor SIR Elton John never acted as his fairy godmother.
Jack, whose real name is Jack Allsopp, got his big break when the Rocket Man hitmaker became a fan of his early recordings and secured him a deal with his own management company, leading to the 32-year-old star signing a major record deal with Mercury Records in 2006.
But Allsopp is quick to point out that John's involvement was strictly for his love of music.
He says, "I tell people that he helped me out, and they always say, 'Like a fairy godmother?' No... like a music lover who likes to bring talent through."
