Following months of speculation, Iyanya has officially signed on the dotted lines with the Supreme Mavin Records (SMD) with the release of a new song featuring Don Jazzy and Dr. Sid.
In the early hours of today, October, 31, 2016, Don Jazzy took to his official Twitter account to announce Iyanya’s arrival and also his excitement about the new partnership.
Also confirming Iyanya’s arrival, Dr Sid tweeted:
#MAVINACTIVATED Happy birthday bro
The new hit tune, “Up 2 Sumting” – produced by Don Jazzy – was released today, a day which coincides with Iyanya’s 30th birthday.
“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,” Iyanya said.
With this move, Iyanya is now a part of the Mavin family, joining the likes of Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello, Reekado Banks, Dr. Sid, Di’Ja and D’prince at SMD.
