Iyanya has finally opened up about joining Don Jazzy's Mavin record label after leaving Triple MG,
According to him, he needed someone who knows much about the music industry and can help me realize that dream he’d always had.
Speaking about the label he proposed starting, the Akwa Ibom Son said: “Honestly, it’s not hard for me to set up my own label. It costs about 120,000 to register a label. But my brand alone demands a lot of attention and the truth is that I actually started a label. Like, I started the movement but I didn’t even see anybody that I could trust on that level because the future and what I want to achieve is way beyond putting 10 people together and moving around with branded T-shirts, which is what everybody wants you to do. I thought about it and decided I need something stronger.”
Further speaking, he said;“I need to concentrate on this music because you can own a label without making good music. Starting a label also meant that I’ll be in charge of my music, logistics and everything. It’s too stressful and I don’t think I’m ready for that. So the best option was Don Jazzy because from our studio session for ‘Gift’ last year, we knew our working together was always smooth and productive. So we just made it official.”
Iyanya also revealed that his his first track release via the label will drop soon and anticipation is high already.
