The Mavin Crew on Monday, welcomed a new member, Iyanya, to the record label.
The artist finally broke the silence by announcing that he is officially joining Mavin Records with the release of a new song featuring Don Jazzy as well as Dr. Sid.
The R&B, afro-pop singer, who used to be in partnership with Ubi Franklyn, made the exit from their record label, ‘Triple MG’.
His new hit tune titled ‘Up 2 Sumting’ was produced by the Record label Boss, Don Jazzy.
According to Iyanya, this comes after months of speculation about his future.
Meanwhile, the track, which was released on Monday, October 31, coincides with the singer’s 30th birthday.
With this new move, Iyanya joins other artistes on the record label including Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, D’Prince, Korede Bello, Reekado Banks and Di’Ja.
In a press statement, he stated: “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 also on Monday, equally expressed excitement about the new partnership.
“Iyanya brings his own unique style and sound to the Mavin Records family.
“From the first time I stepped into the studio with him, there was an instant chemistry and energy.
