Iyanya talks about getting healed from joining Mavin Records after MMMG heartbreak
After a broken relationship with partner Ubi Franklin who alongside co-owned former record label, Made Men Music Group (MMMG), singer Iyanya confirms that joining Mavin Records afterwards was a good moment in his career as it offered him light away from darkness.
He mentioned this in an interview on Ndani TV’s The Juice. In the chat with the host Bolanle Olukanni, he shared that being able to work in a loving atmosphere motivated him about the future that continued with Temple Music.
Don Jazzy was a big influence ensuring that it happened after opening the door to him to record songs. Joining Mavin Records in October 2016, was a short stint and that was because it wasn’t a legal agreement says Iyanya.
“That was healing to me. That was the best time of the whole situation I was in. That was the best moment cos Jazzy just opened the family and said look ‘you are one of us’.
And everybody just showed me that love cos it came from Jazzy. So it was like from Jazzy to Tiwa, to Babyfresh to everybody. It was just love and that really like gave me life because to be honest with you, I was broken,” the singer shared as he talked about the aftermath of his bitter departure from MMMG.
Iyanya also expressed that he was usually the one thought to be the betrayer because of a perception that believed him to be the one who left Franklin for Temple Music and for monetary gains.
