Popular Nigerian music star, Iyanya has been signed into Don Jazzy’s Mavins Records.
Don Jazzy, a genius hit maker, made the announcement from his verified twitter account this morning, which turned out to be Iyanya’s 30th birthday. Jazzy said SMD is pleased to welcome @Iyanya to the Mavin Family. Pls join us to welcome him & let the world know that we #Up2Sumting. #MavinActivated
As usual, this led to several reactions from fans of the music stars on twitter. While some felt Iyanya should have moved to form his own label, others gladly welcomed him to the Mavins family.
Don Jazzy explained that not every musician can own their own label, and if they do, either the music or the business would suffer. The Mavins boss said Let’s learn dat not all artist must own a label. 1 will suffer. D business or d music. Iyanya made a great decision and earns my respect.
Iyanya, born Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, was a winner of the MTN Project Fame in 2008. The singer became popular after his song kukere went viral. He was formerly signed to Made Men Music group.
We await amazing music from this collaboration!
