Once upon a time in July 2016, the news of Iyanya’s exit from Made Men Music Group under a controversial circumstance came as a shocker.
Not because Iyanya is not big enough to walk away from a record label, but using the exit door from a label he co-owned with Ubi Franklin made the issue more complicated. Okay, maybe he was going to float his own record label and form his own team.
While waiting for the big news that will unveil Iyanya’s record label, the tweet from Mavin Boss Don Jazzy announcing Iyanya’s activation to Mavin Records left everyone in the state of “HanHan, Kilonsele”?
Series of questions began to pop up from every angle, What’s happening? Why would Don Jazzy Sign Iyanya? Why would Iyanya himself sign for mavin knowing fully well that the house of Mavin is full already? At the end of the day, the only answer we got from Don Jazzy and Iyanya is “UP TO SOMETHING”
What could Iyanya be up to? Okay, we go dey wait. We’ve been waiting for 8 good months now, everyone is yet to have a feel of what Iyanya said he was up to. Abi, hin just they bobo us?
Yes! he dropped a signature EP comprising of 8 tracks. Not even a single track on that EP made it as much “Duro” by Tekno. So, What on earth is he Up To?
If that signature EP is all that Iyanya has been up to, it means he is not even up to anything in the first place. While Tekno has been dropping hits and bagging awards, Iyanya has been UP TO NOTHING!
What do you guys think, Do you think Iyanya is still up to something, after 8 Months Of Signing To Mavin Records?
