Published

on

As a global music company that is on a misson to develop global hitmakers, Don Jazzy owned record label, Mavin Record, has announced a captivating introductry signing of 18-year-old female singer, Ayra Starr. The new addition to the family assumed her role as a recording and performing talent with a self titled debut EP.

Ayra Starr’s self-titled EP showcases her effective writing skills and polished vocal abilities. The Benin-born, Lagos-based singer navigates love and relationships (“Away”, “Ija” and “Memories”) as well as teenage angst and vices (“Ditr”). It’s a joyful experience shaped by a sophisticated soundscape—electric guitar riffs and subtle percussion merge with her unflappable voice to produce a delicious cocktail of heartfelt and carefree anthems.

“Last year I met the most incredible 18 year old girl, her name is @AyraStarr. It’s been a fantastic experience working behind the scene for over a year and we at Mavin are proud to present her to the world. Pls follow and join me to welcome to MAVIN @ayrastarr,” Don Jazzy tweeted

Did You Know Criss Waddle Had A Relentless Interest In Signing KD Bakes?

Published

on

Speaking in an exclusive interview with BeenieWords, the President of 2HypeGang Worldwide, chairman of AMG Business and CEO of GMB, Starzee acknowledged the fact that AMG Business boss Criss Waddle had a keen interest in signing the afrobeats blue-chip, but trap music King Showboy ended up signing the gem.

The main engine behind the premium ‘Melody Ghod’ recalled how Criss advised KD about loyalty, patience, game plan, determination and going all out for the music no matter any set back. Extraordinarily, even though the ‘Biegya’ hit maker couldn’t sign KD Bakes as planned, it hasn’t reduced his good intentions and will to support the growth of the artist.

I define this gesture by both Starzee and Criss Waddle as pure love to support their brother Showboy and help establish his label together with its magnificent artists – KD Bakes & Kojo Phino.

KD is out with #Pami featuring Yaa Pono, download and listen:
