Here’s Why We Think Iyanya Has Parted Ways With Mavin Records

Feelers emanating from different sources suggest that Nigerian popstar Iyanya might no longer be having a swell time at the Don Jazzy led Mavin Records as the label had allegedly failed to deliver on the promises made to the singer upon inking the deal.

In 2016, Iyanya had penned a record deal with Mavin records after he parted ways with Made Men Music Group which he co-owned with Ubi Franklin, leading fans to anticipate a wave of new music and a resurgence of the man that made Kukere a national anthem. At Mavin, he announced his arrival with Don Jazzy and Dr Sid on Up2Something.

One year later, it appears not all is well.

The rumours of a possible rift between Iyanya and Mavin were further fueled after the label known for always tweeting and celebrating their artistes failed to wish the singer a happy birthday when the singer clocked thirty one a few weeks ago; only Don Jazzy did on his personal handle.

Neither Iyanya or any member of Mavin Records have confirmed any of these speculations, but the singers latest move validates these speculations.
Iyanya had just released a new single titled ‘Iyanu (Holy Water)’ and the Mavin Records emblem was conspicuously missing from the artwork as it is also missing from the official music video which was released on Tuesday. The only logo that is visibly represented in the artwork and music video is that of Temple Management – a management company which he has been affiliated with since February.

This writer spoke to a Mavin representative who simply answered the queries with a one-liner: No comment.

Similarly, a close associate of Iyanya’s declined to speak officially on the matter. ‘We cannot say anything at this moment because the other camp (Mavin) has not yet revealed what the situation is so we’ll just observe for now,’ we were told.

Since joining Mavin Records, Iyanya has successfully released the Signature EP; an eight-track tape which made very little impact and he has also embarked on a European tour that ended in October.

However, Mavin Records had a lukewarm year by their own standards and may the reason for Iyanya’s discontentment: apart from a handful of singles, the label did not deliver major hits as they are known to do. Korede Bello‘s Belloved album came out earlier in the year but was overshadowed by hotter records. Tiwa Savage‘s Sugarcane has continued to make waves since its release only a few weeks ago but it is a far cry from a groundbreaking project.

Couple arrested for alleged kidnapping & selling 2-year old in Imo

A couple in Imo state has been arrested for allegedly selling at least two children – one which is theirs and the other, a 2-year old they kidnapped from his parents, Punch‘s Chidiebube Okeoma is reporting.

They were arrested by the Anti-Kidnapping unit of the Imo State Police Command and were paraded on Wednesday by the state Police Public Relations Officer SP Andrew Enwerem.

Enwerem disclosed that the couple – Ifeanyi Anyanwu and Amarachi Ugorji – allegedly stole the child and sold him for N500,000.
“On August 28, 2017, Ifeanyi Anyanwu, 23; and Amarachi Ugorji,18, conspired and kidnapped (name withheld), who is two years and six months old, from his parents in Umuozu- Uguiri in the Isiala Mbano LGA. 
The two suspects, after the kidnap, started demanding ransom from the parents of the child. When the parents of the kidnapped child could not provide the money, they opted to sell the child to one Ifenyinwa Duru, 39, at the cost of N500,000. Duru, in turn, resold the child to one Chidinma Emmanuel, 42, at the cost of N700,000. 
The two buyers were arrested in Aba following painstaking investigation, while the child was rescued unhurt and has since been reunited with the legitimate parents by the command. 
The suspects have confessed to the crime and investigation has been concluded. The syndicate will soon be charged to court. 
The Commissioner of Police Chris Ezike, has instructed all heads of the tactical units of the command to go all out against those who trade in human beings, especially children, who have done nothing wrong except that they were born into a society that has lost its values,” Punch quoted Enwerem as saying.
Chidinma Emmanuel, who is the second buyer, said she was desperate to have a male child after her husband’s death, adding that the desperation led her into the crime.

The couple told Punch that they had sold their first child on credit to someone in Port Harcourt for N200,000. The case is being investigated.

Punch reports that Amarachi Ugorji is expecting another child soon.

Gifted - Eze Ndi Eze ft. Bishop Rayvic

Gifted is a gospel minister, recording artiste, a worshiper and a praise radical. She hails from Ebonyi State. based in Port Harcourt.

her brand new single "Eze Ndi Eze (King of kings)" is a quintessential worship song, consists of three languages; Igbo, Youruba and Ghanaian language.

in her recent interview at a prestigious radio station in Port Harcourt where she went to talk about her music projects and the inspiration behind her brand new single "Eze Ndi Eze", this is what she had to say; "The inspiration behind this song Eze Ndi Eze (king of kings) came when I embarked on divine assignment and i  was in need of God intervention, I was about given up when the word came - idighi agbanwe agbanwe Eze Ndi Eze (meaning; I have never change or I will never change king of kings) and the Yoruba part I didn't know what I was saying until someone interpreted it. He was the king of kings indeed in that project, I couldn't explain how it happened till day.

My musical background was a strange one to me because I never wanted to be a musician or music minister. it was a divine assignment (calling). the vision came 2014 and that was when I started singing till date. 
I released my first album 2016 titled UNTO US and a video of one track Titled YOUR LOVE aka AM HUNGRY" she said.
