Don Jazzy announced Iyanya’s arrival to the Mavin family earlier today on his Instagram page, excitingly on the artists’ 30th birthday.Iyanya is most notable for hits like Kukere, Ur Waist, Le Kwa Ukwu amongst many other award winning hits to his name
Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, born in Calabar, Cross River State found fame after winning the 2008 MTN Project Fame West Africa and signed with Lagos Based media company CN Media. In 2013 he and long-time friend and manager, Ubi Franklin Ofem formed a label, Made Men Music Group with the likes of Tekno, Emma Nyra, Selebobo, Baci on its lineups of artists.
Baci has since left the label and there had been rumors that Iyanya was very unhappy with Ubi’s handling of artists and finances of the label. Both men have yet to tell their side of the story but we expect there’s more to come from this split from Triple MG. Watch this space.
All being said, we wish him more success in his latest move.
