4 min read


‘Mavin’, according to Wikipedia, means a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass timely and relevant knowledge on to others in the respective field.

In Nigeria, it is the name of one of the foremost record label companies that has served to put music from the country on the global scene. Mavin Record Label is the company. Formed in 2012, it has not only given us hits in the early 2010s but continues to push artists that set the tone for some of our favourite tones. While we might know the hits word for word, the same cannot be said for our knowledge of the members of the record label, so we’ve decided to make a quick list of some of the members and the artists of Mavin Record Label. 

List of recording artists under Mavin Record Label

1. Don Jazzy

Don Jazzy or Michael Collins Ajereh, as his full name reads, is the CEO and owner of Mavin, but he first made his chops as a producer, partnering with D’banj to set up the now defunct Mo’Hits Record Label. He then set up Mavin Records in 2012 following the dissolution of Mo’Hits after he and D’Banj split. Since then he’s taken a backseat on producing and singing but resurfaces occasionally to fill that capacity.
