Wande Coal says bye bye to Mavin Records for good.
Rumours have been swirling for a while that Wande Coal who has set-up his own record label Black Diamond Ent., was leaving music powerhouse Mavin Records.
After the release of his spanking new up beat track “Baby Face” on Tuesday, music producer Don Jazzy took to Twitter to state that he was the rightful owner of the song; claiming he recorded it a year ago (Click here to read).
Today the Mavin Records management sent BN Music an official release that Wande is no longer part of the label; citing irreconcilable differences.
Read the Official release below;
It is with deep regret that we officially announce the departure of recording artist Wande Ojosipe, popularly known as Wande Coal, from Mavin Records due to irreconcilable differences.
Over the past few months, Mavin Records has made a concerted move to consolidate its position in the Nigerian music industry. Mavin has pursued a renewed ethos to raise its standards of quality and professionalism to a world-class level. Wande’s vision has not aligned with ours and a few months ago all parties mutually agreed that a separation would be the best course of action.
Legal parties on both sides have spent the past six months trying to reach an amicable solution in terms of musical property rights. However the decision by Wande Coal to release “Baby Face” purportedly as his own material is a direct breach of intellectual property law and compelled an immediate clarification on our part.
Both Mavin Records and Wande Coal have enjoyed a remarkable run in the course of their working relationship. It is unfortunate that conflicting priorities contributed to the premature curtailment of a hitherto fruitful accord.
Mavin Records reaffirms its goal to constantly provide high quality music to our fans and introduce new and exciting talent into the industry.
We wish Wande Coal the best of luck in all his future endeavours.
