May 11, 2015 – In an endorsement move that could rock the corporate and entertainment world, Don Jazzy and the whole crew of Mavins Record look set to ‘port’ from MTN to the Nigerian-owned telecommunications giant, Globacom.
This audacious move is coming just months before the contract of Nigeria’s foremost producer is due for renewal with MTN.
We gathered that news of Don Jazzy’s availability came up just as Globacom was preparing to add Mavin’s rising musicians Di’Ja, Reekado Banks and Korede Bello to their fold of brand ambassadors.
The source added that not only is Glo eager to sign the young ones all at once, they are determined to break the bank by also offering a record -breaking deal to the Mavin Records CEO.
Don Jazzy, who currently has just two months to run on his MTN deal, recently shook the social media space with news of his signing with online retail giants, Konga.com.
Although the other Mavin acts – Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, D’Prince – all have individual deals with MTN, any move to GLO by Don Jazzy would most likely result in a mass exodus which would hit the South African Telecommunications company hard.
When contacted, Mavin Records declined to comment on the issue.
