Special Xmas Groove With Mavins
For fans of Don Jazzy and his Mavins, this is an exciting time, as the record company has partnered Access Bank for a live music concert in Lagos this Xmas tagged Access Mavin Concert. The gig will parade the entire Mavin Records lineup on one stage for several hours of performances. From Dr. Sid to Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello, Di’ja, Reekado Banks, D’Prince, Don Jazzy… it’s going to be an interesting evening.
Billed for Wednesday, December 23, at the Eko Atlantic, with tickets pegged N499 per person, this will be the first time the record company would be staging a live music concert since it’s three years of existence as a leading music house in the country. For Don Jazzy and his ‘gang’, it’s an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to fans, who have supported the brand over the years.
Speaking at a press conference held recently in Lagos to herald the concert, Mavins boss Don Jazzy stated that the Access Mavin Concert is a special ‘Thank You’ event in recognition of the support from their fans, who will only have to pay a fraction of typical gate fees to get in.
“We are very excited to be able to put this together this year after three years of steady progress as individuals and as a label. Despite many odds, we have been able to get to this point and do so many unprecedented things in the Nigerian music industry. I am particularly pleased that Access Bank wants to share in this success story and contribute to it and I am sure that the fans will love what we have in store for them on the night.”
Though a Mavin Record’s gig, there are indications that a few other notable Nigerian artiste are likely coming on stage.
“For now, it’s all about Mavins, but at the right time, we will confirm other artistes on the bill. Of course, some of our friends in the industry are interested in performing that day, but that’s information for another day,” Don Jazzy said.
Giving his own thoughts on the event, Mavin Records artiste Dr. Sid said recently, “Our fans have always been here for us through thick and thin. Without them, there will be no Mavin Record Label or Don Jazzy or Dr. Sid. What could be a better way to appreciate their loyalty over the years than this?”
For Tiwa Savage, “I can’t wait to thrill my fans at the concert and appreciate them for all their goodwill messages during my sojourn to motherhood. It’s going to be exciting performing on stage with my label colleagues and I just can’t wait.”
