Iyanya joins Mavin Records, drops new single with Don Jazzy, Dr. Sid

After months of speculation about his future, Iyanya has finally broken the silence by announcing that he is officially joining Mavin Records with the release of a new song featuring Don Jazzy and Dr. Sid.

The new hit tune entitled “Up 2 Sumting” is produced by Mavin Records head-honcho, Don Jazzy.

It was released on Monday, which 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.

“I am at a decision-making curve in my music career where I have to make the right professional and creative decisions,” Inyanya said. “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.

Iyanya was previously signed on with Ubi Franklin’s Made Men Records.

Up until his exit from the label early in the year, Iyanya was the biggest artiste on the platform. Franklin has since found a replacement in Teckno who is responsible for the hit, Pana.
