After months of speculation regarding his future, Iyanya has finally broken the silence by saying that he is officially joining Marvin Records with the release of a brand new song that includes Don Jazzy and Dr. Sid.
The new hit tune entitled “Up 2 Sumting” is produced by Marvin Records head-honcho, Don Jazzy.
It was released on Monday 1, which coincides with 30th birthday of Iyanya.
With this new move, Iyanya joins other artistes on the record label as well as Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, D’Prince, Korede Bello, Di’Ja and Reekado Banks.
“I am at a decision-making curve in my music career where I have to make the right professional and creative decisions,” Inyanya said.
“At this time, I realised the need to put in solid structures in place to move to the next level of my career. i think I have found that professional and creative backbone in Marvin Records.”
Don Jazzy, WHO stony-broke the news on his Twitter handle on Monday, was also excited regarding the new partnership.
“Iyanya brings his own distinctive style and sound to the Marvin Records family,” he added.
“From the first time I stepped into the studio with him, there was an instant chemistry and energy. He’s an amazing talent and he has great musical versatility. This is an exciting time for us and our fans have lots of great music to look forward to.”
The groundbreaking move is the Cross river State-born singer’s first major one after his decision to sign a management deal with leading creative talent agency, Temple Management Company as a part of efforts to launch a new section of his career.
Iyanya was previously signed on with made Men Records owned by Ubi Franklin.
Up till his exit from the label early in the year, Iyanya was the biggest artiste on the platform. Franklin has since found a replacement in Teckno who is responsible for the hit, Pana.
