One of the biggest record labels in Africa, Mavin Records, have announced the release of a joint project.
In a picture published on Facebook by Johnny Drille today, all the artistes that make up Mavin Records are captured together. Don Jazzy, as seen in the picture, was in the company of Rema, Ayra Starr, Ladipoe, Johnny Drille, Crayon, Boy Spyce, Bayanni, Magixx and the label’s official disc jockey, DJ Big N.
According to a Johnny Drille post published online today, the label is set to follow up the joint single effort released in May titled Overdose. This follow up single will be released on November 2nd.
It was also said that the collective project of the label will be released on December 2nd while all the members of the group prepare for a groundbreaking joint concert on 16th December, to close the year.
It should be noted that while the Mavin Records had had outstanding joint singles over the past eight years, which can be traced back to 2014 Doro Bucci featuring the very first set of artistes of the label, Dr Sid, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy himself, D Prince, Dija, Reekado and Korede Bello; Looku Looku, featuring the same set of artistes, Adaobi featuring Dija, Korede Bello, Don Jazzy and Reekado; All Is In Order featuring Rema, Crayon, DNA, Don Jazzy, Korede Bello etc; this proclaimed joint project scheduled for release in December 2022 is the label’s very first joint project.
It should also be noted that joint projects within a label are not alien to the Nigerian Afrobeats industry. 2018 presented listeners with the opportunity to experience a joint label project from Olamide’s YBNL; this was a project dubbed YBNL Mafia featuring Fireboy, DJ Enimoney, Limerick, Temmy Ovwasa, Picazo, Lyta, Lil Kesh, Pheelz and Olamide himself, in the company of outsiders like Kizz Daniel and LK Kuddy.
This project is particularly significant for Mavin Records as an establishment because the intent behind the release of the album is to mark the longevity of the record label and celebrate its 10th year of operation and unmatched successes.
