I swear down, as far as I am concerned, you have just proven to to many why you remain successfully relevant till date – wisdom!
You are a true son from the South-south, brother.
Y’helloooo!!! Did I hear you asking what or how his former Manager would feel about his new moves “giant strides”?
Now, let’s look at it from these angles:
(i). Iyanya is one independent individual with soul right to self-decision.
(ii). Triple MG is a running company on its own.
(iii). The other Party is one business man as well as the current talk of the town.
(iv). According to one of my favorite #KJQuotes:
a. “If a man must keep growing and excelling, he must change his perspectives, he must try new things, spread his tentacles, learn more and be willing to swallow his pride, summon his courage and take a bold step forward.” – …learn more…from who? The Experts!
In other words, #SMD is the Expert in the game, no argument, they’re the best label around. No story – agreed!
Away from that, because I’m not trying to cause any debate here, but still, it’s allowed. One other thing I have recently learned is that we all are Oliver Twists, let’s leave pretense…we always want more in life!
Ubi Franklin, with all humility and honesty, is one of the great Artistes Managers I respect so much, I follow him on all social media, except SNAP CHAT (if he’s there – a mystery I am not willing to uncover…)
(i) . He is a role model to many Uprising/Fast rising Managers, including myself.
(ii). He is responsible a man, with self-control (this I know of him well).
(iii). His successes and achievements so far, speak volumes for his personality and status in the industry.
(iv). His footprints are there for all to see and will remain as long as he wants.
(v). He’s bagged so many #awards too – and just recently, one of his renowned hits-making Acts bagged “The Best Breakthrough Artiste Of The Year, 2016” at the just concluded #MTVMAMAs, after dishing out series of back-to-back hits by the #Pana Crooner. An award excellently deserved, agreed!
(vi). With Ubi, Iyanya was no doubt still doing great things with good songs. They’ve both achieved a lot together, won awards and lots more.
However, my point is; IYANYA MBUK realized that, he WANTS MORE! We all want more in life, as said earlier.
“When a man thinks he’s succeeded enough, I tell you what, he knows nothing about ‘DREAMING & AIMING BIG’ yet enough.” – King Joseph
“You want to fly higher?
Spread your wings wider.” – King Joseph
Therefore, I believe that, Iyanya has taken the right decision by changing his management for “The Temple Company” and just in hours, penned a history-making recording deal with the Supreme Mavins Dynasty #SMD #TheMavins (on his birthday). Rather than feeling bad, the other party should congratulate his former Artiste (brother) for a new height and wishes him well.
This is a jinx-broken move in our music industry and this history-making deal between Iyanya and oga Don Jazzy’s Mavins Records – leaving his own label #TripleMG for another, even as an A-list Artiste, I must say is one of the boldest and wisest step (by any Artiste in Nigeria/Africa) and needs to be widely commended by many Nigeria Music lovers, across the world, including the media. Let’s make it go viral – let’s BREAK the INTERNET with this our own. Nor be only when e involve an external music company na hin we go hail am – let’s laud this too. This is our own…tiwa n tiwa!
We know lots of Artistes in his category (both in the past and now) & even below, who might have had similar thoughts – but that cowardice thoughts of the fans and media reactions to such move force them to change their minds – and, I must say that the bulk of these Acts had fallen like rotten Mangoes…no where to be found/heard anymore. They have all be useless like pali kondom…pride!
Some Artistes would have thoughts of floating their own label or since they already own one (recognized) there’s no need to sign under any other, even when they know that they are not getting desired result running it…agidi, nsong iwuod – stubbornness I mean!
Hey! Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong in Artistes going independent, but what’s wrong is when you try such step, upon realizing, you’re not yet in that capacity – we know them.
IYANYA, THE PACE SETTER! Fly on, brother.
We can only pray to God for the deal between Iyanya, Don Jazzy, and The Temple Company yield something extraordinary better by His grace. Peace also be unto the Mavins family generally.
A GOOD ONE FOR NIGERIA MUSIC INDUSTRY, though.
