A couple of weeks ago music star Iyanya announced that he was leaving the TripleMG record label he started with Ubi Franklin. While they both stated that there was no bad blood between them causing the separation, a number of their fans couldn’t help but speculate.
Iyanya has now joined the Mavin Records family, as announced by Don Jazzy on Twitter a few minutes ago.
Don Jazzy announced that Iyanya is now a part of the Mavin family joining Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Di’Ja, D’Prince, and Dr. Sid. They also have two in-house producers, Baby Fresh and Altims.
In his own words, Iyanya said,
“I am at a decision-making curve in my music career where I have to make the right professional and creative decisions. At this point, I realised the need to put in solid structures in place to move to the next level of my career. I think I have found that professional and creative backbone in Mavin Records.”
Don Jazzy, who broke the news on his Twitter handle on Monday, was also excited about the new partnership.
“Iyanya brings his own unique style and sound to the Mavin Records family,” he said.
“From the first time I stepped into the studio with him, there was an instant chemistry and energy. He is an amazing talent and he has great musical versatility. This is an exciting time for us and our fans have a lot of great music to look forward to.”
The groundbreaking move is the Cross River State born singer’s first major one after his decision to sign a management deal with leading creative talent agency, Temple Management Company as part of efforts to launch a new phase of his career.
They already have a new song called Up to Something featuring Dr SID and Don Jazzy.
