Iyanya has finally opened up on why he left Made Men Music and signed to Mavin Records
. “What people don’t know is, I didn’t sell my share. People see me and say oh. why did you sell your share? I didn’t sell my shares, I left Made Men at the time because there was so much darkness. In the midst of all the wings, I decided to let that go.
Mavin was … shout out to Jazzy… #DonJazzy gave me that platform to put music out because I left Made Men and I didn’t want anything from Made Men, so Jazzy just said look, men, you’ve built something over the years and starting all over it’s not going to be as easy as you think, so just put out music from here and work on something.
So people really thought I signed to Mavin but it wasn’t like a legal signing, it was just love. And then Temple Music came, when Temple music came, I love the vision, I love the dream and I was like Okay, let me try this. and that was when I released Up To Something, Hold On, I mean, Good Vibes. And after that, it was time for me to move, because I felt like I got to the point where I have to put out my own thing, have my own family, have my own team, me and Alex…”
On the “darkness”, He said; “When I said it was darkness, I was not myself anymore because I felt like there was no trust anymore. Because at the time I was singing I co-owned Made Men with Ubi but I later realized that my name was not in any of the forms I signed… and I was broken… and that was the beginning of me just saying to hell with everything.” The hurt of being betrayed could still be felt in his voice as he looked like his mind went back to that time.
