Mavin@10; Top Classics to come out from Mavin Records

Don Jazzy-led Mavin record has dished out classics over the years solidifying its place as one of Nigeria’s top labels.

Mavin was birthed after the crash of D’banj and Don Jazzy’s co-led Mo’hits record which dominated the industry in the mid-2000s.

While D’banj left to join Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music record and start his own label, Don Jazzy started Mavin signing in Wande Coal, Tiwa Savage, D’Prince and Dr Sid at the initial stage.

However, Wande Coal left and other artists like Korede Bello, Reekado Banks, and Di’Ja were added to the label.

Over the years, the Label has witnessed the exit of some talented acts and the addition of other acts like Ayra Starr, Magixx, Crayon, and Rema who came through a joint partnership with D’Prince’s Jonzing record.

This year, the iconic label clocked 10 years and to commemorate the special occasion, compiled a list of some of its best classics released over the years.


Take note, that this list isn’t ranked and for lack of space, other classics couldn’t be added.

Dorobucci” was one of the most popular in Nigerian pop culture throughout 2014. The song also marked the launch of the Mavin group into the mainstream scene.

Reekado Banks had a terrific hook on this one, as did the entire Doros.

Adaobi- Mavins (Don Jazzy, Reekado Banks, Di’ja, Korede Bello)

Don Jazzy claims he isn’t a singer, however, this song disproves that allegation. Reekado Banks also put in a strong performance on this one.

Di’ja and Korede Bello also did well, but Reekado Banks and Don Jazzy were the clear winners.

Despite the fact that this song was released in 2014, it still feels like a new song.

Godwin- Korede Bello

Korede Bello-Godwin

This is one of the rare secular tunes that has been known to shut down nightclubs and churches.

Don Jazzy and Korede Bello’s masterpiece “Godwin” will live on forever. The Bellovers, Korede’s fanbase, was born and institutionalized as a result of this song.

Awww- Di’Ja
