Mavin Activated

Recently, one of Nigeria’s largest record labels, Mavin Records, signed on 3 new acts:

My favorite, P.O.E, Johnny Drille, and the DNA twins (L-R)

I’m so excited to watch the Mavin family grow, even more to hear a song with the entire Mavin family!

Earlier this week, Johnny Drille released his first music video under the Mavin label. The song is called ‘Wait for me‘. As always, it’s a soulful romantic song with the sweet sounding voice of Johnny.

The DNA twins also dropped a hit, which I am currently obsessing over. It’s so catchy! I was editing photos for work and had it playing on repeat! It’s called ‘How Can‘ and features a harmonization with Don Jazzy’s unique voice.

I think it’s amazing that Don Jazzy is giving young hopefuls a chance to grow and “blow” in the Nigerian music industry. More grease to your elbows, sir.

Long Live Mavin!

Banky W Music Videos

Unlike many Nigerian artistes who just have girls dancing in their videos, Banky W actually puts thought into his music videos. More often than not, his videos tell a cute love story. I enjoy watching the videos as much as I do listening to his songs.

Shout out to Mr. W, keep up the good work!!

International Collaborations!!

This week has been filled with releases of international collaborations. First, we heard of the remix of wizkid’s hit single, Ojuelegba featuring Drake and Skepta. Today, news broke of Ayo Jay and Fetty Wap’s collaboration on the remix of his (Ayo) hit song, Your number. 

This is definitely great news for the Nigerian entertainment industry. We’re moving forward! Hopefully, we have many more domestic (WizKid and Davido or Tiwa Savage and Niyola) and international collabos.
