CATCHING UP WITH THE MAVINS

image

100 persons who consume made in Nigeria music, were asked to randomly mention five record labels in Nigeria, it’s a sure bet Mavin Records will suffice the mentions 90 – 95% of the time. The Don Jazzy led music imprint is indeed popular and highly rated, isn’t it what it is?

After the infamous shutdown of defunct Mo’Hits Records, Don Jazzy and D’banj his erstwhile partner moved on to create individual record labels. D’banj started his DB Records while Don Jazzy set up Mavin Records. At this time Mavin Records is 4 years plus in the music industry, with a few achievements to brag about.

So what’s up with Don baba J and his Mavin Records?

As it stands, the Lagos based record label is purportedly the most organized and structured label in Nigeria. They have gone beyond existing on paper, twitter, instagram and social media platforms; indeed, they have a physical structure for daily running of the imprint. Mavin records currently, have three in-house producers including Don Jazzy, seven artistes on the roster, and a handful of administrative staff.

The music industry was indeed surprised when Iyanya was signed to the music imprint, it made quite a ripple. The music industry still awaits the magic that will be birth from that synergy.

Michael Collins and his music imprint are showing signs that the music business in Nigeria is not going to be business as usual. The signing of Iyanya showed Mavin records is set to become the biggest music imprint in Africa if it isn’t already. On New Years eve, Jazzy informed us about the eminent expansion of the label and so the music imprint was recruiting more administrative staff and label representatives to cover some strategic territories. It only shows Jazzy and his entire Mavin Records are about to change the game from what it used to be.

While structure, alignment, organization, marketing are very needful to have a successful music business, I’m a bit concerned. Indeed the moves are great but something must not be forgotten. A record label’s primary product of merchandise is music, right? That is the core reason why music labels are set up, to push and promote “good music” and that must not be overshadowed by excessive machinery.

Currently, Mavin Records has on its roster,Dr Sid, D’Prince, Tiwa Savage, Mavin 2.0 triplets; Reekado Banks, Di’Ja, Korede Bello and now Iyanya. Can the label get all these artistes to perform at optimum? From a critical perspective, Korede Bello is due for an album; Di’Ja needs a banging comeback into the game then probably an album from her. D’Prince music career is in dire need of a total make over and rejuvenation if he isn’t already retired. The past 12 months has seen Tiwa Savage andReekado Banks as the most impressive of the squad. Albeit, Reekado Banks album “Spotlight” is criticized to have suffered neglect from Don Jazzy or better put a laissez affaire attitude was seen in the production of the album. Spotlight looked liked a hurried horrid work. For Dr Sid he has just been hanging in there, and for Iyanya the part 2 of his story has just begun.

The point here is quite simple, Mavin Records must pay good attention to the music released from it staples, below par music shouldn’t be forced down our throats via good marketing. The quality of it’s primary product of merchandise which is music must not suffer downgrade in favor of superlative and high class packaging. The product must be as qualitative as it’s package. A lot of work still has to be done. Maybe signing one or two music producers will help a great deal. That will ease the work for both artistes and music producers a bit. Meanwhile all these “one man squad” record labels are very much a competition to beat. All the intimidating structure which is great might be nothing if the essence it was set up takes a nose dive.

CHECK OUT 21 SUCCESS TIPS FOR YOUNG AND ASPIRING ENTREPRENEURS

image

Being successful often means learning from those who have already achieved their goals. Having a mentor is an amazing blessing to an entrepreneur, but not everyone can find one in person.

If you haven’t yet found your personal business guru, here are 21 tips for young or aspiring entrepreneur to help get you started.

1. Challenge yourself.
Richard Branson says his biggest motivation is to keep challenging himself. He treats life like one long university education, where he can learn more every day. You can too!

2. Do work you care about.
There’s no doubt that running a business take a lot of time. Steve Jobs noted that the only way to be satisfied in your life is to do work that you truly believe in.

3. Take the risk.
We never know the outcome of our efforts unless we actually do it. Jeff Bezos said it helped to know that he wouldn’t regret failure, but he would regret not trying.

4. Believe in yourself.
As Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.” Believe that you can succeed, and you’ll find ways through different obstacles. If you don’t, you’ll just find excuses.

5. Have a vision.
The founder and CEO of Tumblr, David Karp, notes that an entrepreneur is someone who has a vision for something and a desire to create it. Keep your vision clear at all times.

6. Find good people.
Who you’re with is who you become. Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, noted that the fastest way to change yourself is to hang out with people who are already the way you want to be.

7. Face your fears.
Overcoming fear isn’t easy, but it must be done. Arianna Huffington once said that she found fearlessness was like a muscle — the more she exercised it, the stronger it became.

8. Take action.
The world is full of great ideas, but success only comes through action. Walt Disney once said that the easiest way to get started is to quit talking and start doing. That’s true for your success as well.

9. Do the time.
No one succeeds immediately, and everyone was once a beginner. As Steve Jobs wisely noted, “if you look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” Don’t be afraid to invest time in your company.

10. Manage energy, not time.
Your energy limits what you can do with your time, so manage it wisely.

11. Build a great team.
No one succeeds in business alone, and those who try will lose to a great team every time. Build your own great team to bolster your success.

12. Hire character.
As you build your team, hire for character and values. You can always train someone on skills, but you can’t make someone’s values fit your company after the fact.

13. Plan for raising capital.
Richard Harroch, a venture capitalist, has this advice for upcoming entrepreneurs: “It’s almost always harder to raise capital than you thought it would be, and it always takes longer. So plan for that.”

14. Know your goals.
Ryan Allis, co-founder of iContact, pointed out that having the end in mind every day ensures you’re working toward it. Set goals and remind yourself of them each day.

15. Learn from mistakes.
Many entrepreneurs point to mistakes as being their best teacher. When you learn from your mistakes, you move closer to success — even though you initially failed.

16. Know your customer.
Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy’s, cited knowing your customer as one of his three keys to success. Know those you serve better than anyone else, and you’ll be able to deliver the solutions they need.

17. Learn from complaints.
Bill Gates once said that your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning. Let unhappy customers teach you where the holes in your service are.

18. Ask for customers’ input.
Assuming what customers want or need will never lead to success. You must ask them directly, and then carefully listen to what they say.

19. Spend wisely.
When you spend money on your business, be careful to spend it wisely. It’s easy to spend too much on foolish things and run out of capital too soon.

20. Understand your industry.
Tony Hsieh, the founder of Zappos, once said, “Don’t play games you don’t understand, even if you see lots of other people making money from them.” Truly understanding your industry is key to having success.

21. Deliver more than expected.
Google’s Larry Page encourages entrepreneurs to deliver more than customers expect. It’s a great way to get noticed in your industry and build a loyal following of advocates.

Being a successful entrepreneur takes a lot of work, a lot of vision and a lot of perseverance. These 21 tips, from entrepreneurs who have already found success, will help you navigate the path much more easily.
