Nigeria is a country that formed the basis of some of the newest musical forms and genres ever created, of African Origins. One famous record label, known for launching some of the most successful musicians based in Nigeria is the Mavin Records. Formed on 8th May, 2012, the company is a creation of Don Jazzy. Recording the works of singers and musicians such as D’ Prince, Dr. Sid, Korede Bello and Tiwa Savage has been under the domain of Mavin Records.
The formation of the Mavin Record Company came about as a result of the shutdown of a previously existing company, the Mo’ Hits Records after the withdrawal of D’ Banj from Mo’ Hits. However, the company was able to prosper and form an ample amount of followers not only of their work but their official website used as a mean of social networking with fans. In 2014, Mavin Records won the City People Entertainment Award as the Best Record label of the year.
Though, famous for producing some really beautiful music of African-European genres, the Mavin Records have gathered a huge name in the industry, there also exist other record houses that are known to launch talents that cannot be undermined al all.
Mavin Records current success is comparable to that of the American Record Group Bad Boy Records of the early 90s. Bad Boy had major success with artists like Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans, 112 and Craig Mack.
Though, the company did not win any big accolades as such, their success cannot be undermined since they are known to produce some of the biggest hits of all times. The success of one record company, however, cannot demean the strength of another. It can be conclusively said that both these companies in addition to a few other biggies have not disappointed their fans as well as the music industry itself.
Mavin Records Artists : Don Jazzy, Dr. Sid, Wande Coal, Tiwa Savage, D’Prince and Reekado Banks are all featured on Zimvibes Afrobeat Music Station.
