I’m happy for him – Ubi Franklin on Iyanya Signing With Mavin Records

CEO of Made Men Music Group (MMMG) and Iyanya’s former manager, Ubi Franklin, has reacted to the singer’s major move to Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records.

Speaking exclusively to Linda Ikejis Blog (LIB), Ubi states that he’s happy for his former partner and does not feel betrayed by his move to a competing music label.

News broke this morning that your former partner, Iyanya has signed onto Don Jazzy’s music label, Mavin Records. We would love to know your stance and reaction to this?
I’m happy for Iyanya. The truth is that, if you are happy for somebody, God will be happy with you and you will be happy with yourself. I don’t have anything against him.

This is music business and everything you do – as far your music is right and you are making the music for the world, it doesn’t depend on the label that you are in for all to enjoy it. I’m happy he is where great music comes out from, a label with one of the best music producers in Africa. I’m so happy for him, today is his birthday and I wish him all the best.

Iyanya informed everyone initially that he was going to start up his own label. This has however changed. Do you feel betrayed?
We are all human beings; today Iyanya is 30 by age. As a 30-year-old man, you are able to take any decision on your own, you can change your mind, you can do whatever you want to do. The most important thing is that from what I’ve seen, trust me he is happy. Nobody takes a decision that is going to be bad for him.. I still know he still has his own plans for his Label. But at this point, I know Iyanya is where good music comes from.

So you don’t feel betrayed?
No No! The only way I will feel betrayed is if there was something he owed me and he didn’t give back to me, but there is nothing like that. I’m happy for him.

Do you see any more collaborations between your team and Iyanya in the future?
That’s the funny thing about music, everything is possible. When you see people in music having issues, just leave them, the wheel goes round, if you check my snapchat, I’m always dancing to his music. There might be a future collaboration, I’m open to anything. I’m a business man, there is nothing we are fighting for.

Doro Sticker: Don Jazzy Blazes New Trail With The Launch of Digital Mavin Stickers

It’s Don Jazzy Again! This time though, it is not a new monster hit song, it is something much more different, fresh and digital.

Super music producer and label executive Michael Collins a.k.a Don Jazzy has again blazed the trail with the launch of Digital Stickers that reflect the communication interests of Nigerians and indeed Africans. Working with 3AM Media, a company that prides itself as a leading brand in the creation of Digital Stickers, the multi award winning producer is helping to start a trend that is likely to eventually get the attention of his peers who will see it as a chance to further connect with their fans. Doro Stickers are already exciting music fans all across social media going by the conversation they are already generating.

Stickers carrying words like, “Later” a way to indicate you’d again reach out to the person you are chatting with without having to type the words, others include “My Oga,” in reference to you greeting your chat mate, “”Sup Bro,” “Holla me,” “Sleep don catch me,” “Igweeeeee,” and of course “It’s Don Jazzy again” amongst other fun and indeed serious content. They all come with images that reflect the words or the message being passed.

Speaking on the launch of the Doro Stickers, Don Jazzy expressed his delight and said, “we are excited to connect with our fans and supporters and this is just another way we seek to do that. It is a fun way and at the same time we are helping to create content that Africans can relate with in terms of the messages on the stickers.”

Asked how he felt leading the industry to blaze yet another trail, the serial award winning producer and music executive stated that he was not as much about blazing a trail as he was about just staying in touch with the needs of his fans and his supporters, he said, “blazing a trail is one thing, creating content that matters to our fans and supporters is another and we are much more about what matters to our fans. Any other thing apart from that is a bonus.”

The stickers are currently available on BB10, Android and iOS while plans are on to have them available on Windows operating systems.
