BN Exclusive: From Mo’Hits to Mavin Records! The New Music PowerHouse Label – Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Dr SID, Wande Coal & D’Prince

What a way to kick off the week.
The D’banj/Don Jazzy/Mo’Hits Saga has simmered down and a new era is here.
Mavin Records is a new record company headed by Don Jazzy with A-List musicians Dr SID, Wande Coal, D’Prince and Tiwa Savage on board.

Check out their website and tell us what you think!

The Mavin Records team is set to release a compilation album “Solar Plexus” featuring all the Mavin stars. According to the website, the album will be released on the 8th of May 2012 – Tomorrow!

So what is Mavin? Well, apparently it’s a new work coined to describe “someone who is dazzlingly skilled in any field“.

Message from Don Jazzy
I see Mavin Records being the power house of Music in Africa in the shortest possible time. I know Rome wasn’t built in a day but with a lot of hard work, a good and God fearing team, our friends and fans, TV houses, radio stations, press, bloggers and most of all with God on our side, there is nothing we cannot achieve.
I definitely won’t forget my past because I wouldn’t be where I am today without it. I know there are questions unanswered, mysteries unsolved, wounds to heal but I would really appreciate if we allow time to heal the wounds for us all instead of digging them up again.
I love and respect the press and bloggers a lot and believe they will play a major role in healing our wounds and allow the forward movement. I would love to thank everyone that contributed in making Mohits records as successful as it got. We wouldn’t have done it without you all. The love and support you have given us thus far is definitely not in vain.  You all helped create international superstars and none of us will let you down.

It is going to be a very exciting journey from here. I can’t wait to show you guys all we have planned for you all. We have some other Mavins that are not activated yet still under construction that I’m positive you are going to love. Please open up your hearts, lend us your ears, give us your love and support as always and let’s continue to entertain you. Please don’t forget to visit. and join the fan club “MAVIN LEAGUE” for exclusive news, music and gifts.

“Don’t just be amazing at what you do, be a MAVIN at it” – IDJA

  • KingsQueen May 7, 2012 at 1:01 am

    Smart move to have Tiwa on board, and the Marvin name for a label is a good one! God go make you bigger DonJazzy

  • Bewi May 7, 2012 at 1:01 am

    “someone who is dazzlingly skilled in any field” I thought that was ‘MAVEN’

    • Johnny Lovely May 7, 2012 at 1:31 am

      also spelled “mavin” get it right

  • jane May 7, 2012 at 1:03 am

    All na hype

  • xxx May 7, 2012 at 1:17 am

    hmmmn Don baba.. u r too calculated as in!!!!! I pray this works out tho cos the team is looking SOLID. and talk about being smart to have tiwa as your FIRST LADY… if she continues the way she’s going now(as she can presently do no wrong)this joint venture is bound to be FIRE!!

  • xxx May 7, 2012 at 1:17 am


  • Aket May 7, 2012 at 1:18 am

    @Bewi… nope, “MAVIN” is the correct word for “someone who is dazzlingly skilled in any field”

  • @StraitTwistedMe May 7, 2012 at 1:22 am

    Hmmm…. 2morrow is already here… let’s hope their album make sense sha. Mo’Hit to Mavin… Coolies

  • Mz_Olly May 7, 2012 at 1:25 am

    love this, cant wait!!!!! *dancing

  • anonimouse May 7, 2012 at 1:25 am

    I love this combination more with Tiwa Savage on block, Don Jazzy watch for the likes of D’banj they are pure betrayals, hhhmm (YORUBAS)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Chuks May 7, 2012 at 1:47 am

      This is a retarded comment.

      • bla bla May 7, 2012 at 1:42 pm

        So tiwa savage (who is the first lady of the label) and wande coal are now what? I could use your obviously low IQ to brand your tribe but I know better.

    • Butterfly May 7, 2012 at 1:59 am

      And Tiwa Savage is what? Fulani?

    • Makema May 7, 2012 at 2:05 am

      Wow, Bella Naija approved this xenophobic comment.
      Whoever you are, your reward is keenly waiting for you in hell.

      • Chi May 7, 2012 at 2:53 am

        Don’t be ridiculous. I wouldn’t wish hell on my worst enemy. You should be careful of the things you say. There is power in the tongue (please read the bible). Do not use it to condemn yourself. I really cannot believe the way you over reacted. I am guessing the posters was joking!

      • Chi May 7, 2012 at 12:56 pm

        You are quite silly and unrepentant. May God help you and forgive that mouth of yours. I am sure you will live to regret that comment. Like I said there is power in the tongue. Internet bully.

    • Nma May 7, 2012 at 2:07 am

      most people on the label are yoruba, what are u on about?

      • Makema May 7, 2012 at 6:29 am

        @Chi, abeg mind ur business, I am not u. U dont have to wish hell on anyone, allow me do it for u. Amebo.

    • feyi May 7, 2012 at 2:09 am

      if i address ur myopicness now some people will say am bitter. wetin concern betrayal and yoruba? u get sense? rara o!!!

    • Juwon May 7, 2012 at 3:10 am

      You’re actually an idiot for that statement…… Very ignorant person!!!

    • Wowza May 7, 2012 at 3:43 am

      I hate stupid tribalists and you are one and a disgrace to all Igbo people. Grow a brain and realize that betrayal and loyalty has no tribe just like it would be stupid of me to insult all ibos because of a sub-par brained nonentity like you. I suppose Wande Coal is not Yoruba right? Please go to nairaland and spew this crap or somewhere else where you have stupid people like yourself, and bella better approve this after approving this xenophobic message.

    • bantonF_Omoakin May 7, 2012 at 8:17 am

      IDJ just want Ǜ to know am ur fan and also dbanj’s fan and every body in ur new crew Ǜ guys jst re-enterd ԃ spot light and Ǜ know dats ԃ hardest part in an artist career jst give dem ԃ best Ǜ ave same to every one in mavin and also ԃ koko master

    OO i liked mohits now.. i thot it was very ghen ghen

    But sha I guess marvin will grow on me..

    I like the fact djazzy is not wearing any silly glasses and his eyes we can see.

    He looks good in the outfit and please (no more silly cane lol) This look is sleek and well polished.


    Do u know the ingredient to your success ” YOU ARE FOCUSED AND NOT FAZED”. I believe its important to have such attitude in order to avoid distractions and silly games. I believe u will attract the best in the land.

    So keep on keeping ON. yeah, u have it covered D JAZZY.

  • ade May 7, 2012 at 1:59 am

    Dis anonimouse or watever ur name is a fOOL. Y wld U̶̲̥̅̊ say Yorubas as if U̶̲̥̅̊ are beter off. Cast d first stone if U̶̲̥̅̊ are nt a born betrayal and stabber! Learn 2 mind wat U̶̲̥̅̊ write as if fathers were better and nt betrayals

    • God is good May 7, 2012 at 3:41 am

      Na wa for this one in town spelling. “ANONIMOUSE”?

      • fokasibe May 7, 2012 at 9:01 am

        If you scrolled up and read it, you would have seen that the original “anonymouse” poster typed it that way.

  • feyi May 7, 2012 at 2:03 am

    love tiwa savage. nice addition for them not sure if it is for her. she still has my support though

  • remi May 7, 2012 at 2:03 am

    Lol i just love don baba!

  • toby May 7, 2012 at 2:18 am

    @ Mr/Miss/Mrs anoniMOUSE abi wetin u call urself, that’s how u start unnecessary and un-called for feuds, which one is Yorubas again here? judging by ur spelling of “Anonymous” and “betrayer”, i can clearly see that ur judgement n thinking are myopic so trying to correct u is a waste of time. don’t judge a man by his tribe but by his character. besides u weren’t there when D’banj n Don jazzy split so wat makes u so sure of who betrayed whom? wetin concern u?

    • Me May 7, 2012 at 4:10 am

      Why are people waiting time on anoniMOUSE. Just ignore the internet troll. Nobody cares what he/she thinks in his/her empty head.

  • Elizabeth May 7, 2012 at 2:26 am

    best of luck in everyone’s endeavours ,but where’s k switch lol

  • blossom May 7, 2012 at 2:28 am

    awww!cant wait for this.

  • Isoken May 7, 2012 at 2:35 am

    This is what I call bad ass rebranding, don jazzy you dint only rebrand your record for better and greater heights you rebranded yourself and your crew, that’s was up no time for some dysfunctional artist, this is your time to show what you are really made of, and for Tiwa joining the crew dats a good one and nice strategy, don jazzy you wont just make music you breathe and live it so all y’all watch out for the ‘MAVIN’ records it’s gonna be explosive…………..

  • revivedafrikana May 7, 2012 at 2:43 am

    jah bless. i see big things happening. PS Wande Coal abeg drop a few pounds

  • Ayex Money May 7, 2012 at 2:52 am

    Well we can all see this coming but im just curious a little about releasing of their Album sooner than expected.

  • Gimmer May 7, 2012 at 2:52 am

    Tiwa Biko. Lose that hood pout

  • amaka May 7, 2012 at 3:14 am

    I am so happy for Don Jazzy and the rest, but especially the Don Jazzy! I pray for good things to come out this! In Jesus name I pray, Amen! Thank You Lord!

  • Naz May 7, 2012 at 4:47 am

    Don Jazzy is just a DON! shekena!!

  • Janded May 7, 2012 at 5:09 am

    I am just glad Tiwa is in the mix. Love her!

  • Malaika May 7, 2012 at 5:15 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE it! this is truly rebranding! Leave the past behind, and unleash a new mindset and coupled with fresh music! #MeGusta 😀

  • babajide May 7, 2012 at 5:36 am

    No offense bellanaija, i thought your site would have more integrity than this,by allowing that first tribalistic rant, it caused some major backlash. I love and respect this site to be where people can tell the truth, but not bash eachother. We know that tribalistic sentiments and negative things associated with each tribe will always be brought up by evil doers and I beg you bella dont be their tools in achieving their goals. I dont believe in one nigeria, but at the same time i will not bash my northern or eastern cousins. Bellanaija I will take it as a mistake that you approved that tribalistic wound by posting that comment so you are forgiven. In the future, watch what you approve.

    • Gimmer May 7, 2012 at 8:52 am

      Censorship on BN only goes as far as it affects BN favorites. I ve called BN out a few times on how her moderator show favoritism towards ” certain” cliques and less towards unaffilated folks featured here

  • babajide May 7, 2012 at 5:38 am

    Congrats Donjazzy, more grease to your elbow and that of your crew. A great man is not defined by his downfall, but by how he picks up the pieces and carries on. My brother more blessings on your way. Amin!

  • jmayaki May 7, 2012 at 6:01 am

    were is k switch

  • uche May 7, 2012 at 6:48 am

    @ Anonimouse, you are totally tribalistic and ignorant individual. Still talking nonsense about tribe in this time and age, please grow up whoever you are and start living in our time. Congratulations Don Jazzy, May God bless your efforts. Forward ever, Nigerian Music.

    sorry lets wait n see….

  • Ud May 7, 2012 at 7:24 am

    Everybody asking ‘Where is K-Switch’? First K-Switch is D’banj’s brother so you don’t expect him to be a Mavin, he has to support his brother.

  • Brittle Paper May 7, 2012 at 7:38 am

    The new clan is looking pretty damn good to me.

  • Couture By Makioba May 7, 2012 at 7:53 am

  • didi May 7, 2012 at 8:10 am

    Don Don Don Jazzy Again!

    but dont lose focus wit Tiwa in the mix o..Abeg!

  • JAnomaly May 7, 2012 at 8:17 am

    Dang, Tiwa ain’t playing. She got the look of, “WE AIN’T PLAYING WE MEAN BUSINESS”. You go girl. Nice transition, I see this going to new level where all the artists can finally get to showcase their talent as opposed to just being focused on one artist.

  • feran May 7, 2012 at 8:22 am

    OH PLSSSSS! Na wa for all this love for Don Jazzy, sometimes pple make him seem like such a saint! It looks to me like the guy was tired of being in the background…..cant wait to see how it all plays out!

  • Olubojo May 7, 2012 at 8:50 am

    K Switch?????haha…We all know he has always been a hanger on in Mo Hits and I’m pretty damn sure Mr West and Good Music don’t have the slightest clue whodda hell he is so lets 4get about K Switch like we 4got about Rasqie, Azadus and d likes of him!

  • tee May 7, 2012 at 8:54 am

    y’all should leave anonimouse, Nigeria is a ‘tribalist’ country. dunno y pple are such hypocrites. as if in the comfort of your homes, your dont spew yorubas this, ibos that, hausa this and edo that. many of you are the same that say i cant marry from so and so tribe, so kini big deal?

  • duh May 7, 2012 at 9:24 am

    Its really DON JAZZY AGAIN!!!!

  • Bimby May 7, 2012 at 9:37 am

    Well don DonJazzy and the Marvin Records’ Crew. I’m wishing u the very best in ur aspirations. U guys rock!

  • Tayo May 7, 2012 at 10:52 am

    wow dis is u more IDJA

  • ify May 7, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Let’s just leave that ‘annoying mouse’ with his tribalistic comments. The rebranding is WOW! and i really wish them all the best. I wont be too quick to crucify D’Banj tho, Life is in phases and Mo”hits was probably a phase in his life and it was time to move on, with or without them. Let’s just wish everyone the best!

  • ikechukwu Asugha harold May 7, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    @anonimous Wats ur problem sef wat has this gat to do wit either one person is Yoruba or Ibo grow up ookay if u hv notin to say just shut up.

  • Partyrider May 7, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    I’m excited about the new team.i remember posting a comment asking DonJazzy to bring tiwa in so I’m so happy and excited for her..great addition to the team.
    For the person that asked about the quick release of the album, DonJazzy said it was recorded in 3weeks I guess it’s to keep things in motion and for quick boost of the new label.
    I hope I won’t be disappointed tomorrow..
    I wish both don baba and dbanj success in their new paths and success for all the artists on the new label..

  • Oma May 7, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    TIWA IN THE MIX…..Oh i Like I Like…….

  • sunshine May 7, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Nice move Don baba jay.

    this is great,best of luck,let d’bang go with his childish attitude.

  • Bee May 7, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    When I saw this poster last night I was sooo happy. I wasn’t expecting him to bounce back soo quickly but thank God sha that all is well and dandy! I wish them the best of luck…and with Tiwa, 1st lady toh bahd, I’m getting you jare. Good Luck and all the best Mavin!

  • Austin May 7, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    well… I dnt feel right abt this new development cos i feel don J and dbanj are jst too gud together… Nevertheless, i rilly admire the spirit of neva backdown in them. And look @ d way Don is handling d whole issue like a real don. And dbanj has also been busy wif his goodmusic ish… Seems like no bad blood btw em again…. Meanwhile my major concern is dat these new different team(mavin and goodmusic africa) chunk out gud ish and develop africa and Nigerian music to the highest level…. And i pray for Baba God’s guidance on y’all IJN…….. Amen

  • Kim K May 7, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    You must be Dbanj.

  • Michael A. May 7, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Great News and Strong ‘Mavins’. Both are correct – Maven or Mavin, but I think Don Jazzy opted for the later ‘cos its more pronounceable and feminist. Waiting to listen to the gig SOLAR PLEXUS…

  • merit May 7, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    it’s Don jazzy or no 1. i trust him & i no wat he’s capable of doing. dis wil definitely progress. Weldon guys

  • Joy May 7, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Love me, love me, love me…I see you Tiwa. I like the new name. I wish D’banj success in his new opportunity. Also, DonJazzy, and his artists. Looking forward to some good music that will take Nigeria to another level. DO NOT DISAPPOINT.

    am glad d’banj is present. atleast others like wande can showcase their talents. d’banj and don baba made a good partnership but other talents to have to come to the forefront instead of just being back up singers. i dont think K-switch was even very relevant in the group. his absence or presence makes no different.

  • prince ALG December 15, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    well done Mr don jazzy i wish you all the best ooo you are the best and the first kip it up. and pls i want to use this opportunity to tell you that i wanna join join your crew i knew am capable and good to join u,pls i need the details of how am gonna join you pls,am a hip-hop singer and a rapper as-well,pls give me chance to prove myself
