JUST IN: Don Jazzy Signs Iyanya To Mavin Records, 3 Months After Mr Oreo Left MMMG
Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, Nigerian entertainer better known as Iyanya, has joined Mavin Records, owned by Don Jazzy, an ace producer.
“Mavin activated,” Iyanya wrote on his social media page, while an insider privy to the developments revealed that the negotiations have been ongoing for months.
Don Jazzy, early on Monday, announced Iyanya as the latest addition to his fledgling record label.
“The Supreme Mavin Dynasty is pleased to welcome Iyanya to the Mavin family. Please join us to welcome him and let the world know that we are up to something”, Don Jazzy wrote.
About three months ago, Iyanya severed ties with his record label of four years, Made Men Music Group (MMMG).
He announced the parting of ways through a post on social media.
“Dear fans, I am pleased to announce that I have now signed on with Temple Management Company. About a year ago, Ubi and I discussed options to diversify our business interests and creative visions and we both agreed that we would explore all avenues open to us.
“So much has happened since and I have now completed work on my new album which will be released under a new record label.
“With both @thetemplecompany and the new album, I am now embarking in a direction which will not only bring you the same quality, verve and energy that you have become accustomed to, it will take things to the next level.
“Ubi remains my brother and we both look forward to this new phase of our careers,” Iyanya had said.
Iyanya co-owned MMMG with Ubi Franklin, his former manager and partner.
Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello, Di'Ja, Dr. Sid, D' Prince, Reekado Banks are some of the artistes on the Mavin record label.
