hough reasons Iyanya left Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record are still unclear, there are strong indications that he was not comfortable with the system there.
Iyanya, who is now signed to The Temple Music, in a recent radio interview, said he discovered it was time for him to move on and face new challenges.
With Tiwa Savage, Reekardo Banks, Korede Bello, Dr SID, Di’ja and a number of others on the Mavin label, Iyanya didn’t find it easy. He released an EP and two videos while he was with Mavin.
The singer also denied claims that his exit was connected with the big acts on the label, adding, “It was not beef. I was there and it was time to move on. I’m now signed to Temple Music but, I am a Mavin for life.’’
Mavin Records now has Tiwa, Dr Sid D’Prince, Di’ja, Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Johny Drille, Poe and the DNA twins.
