Bayanni discloses how he was signed to Mavin Records
As the case of Bayanni, the newest talent signed to Don Jazzy’s Mavin Record, demonstrates, social networking does help in linking up-and-coming artists with music moguls.
Bayanni’s EP was supposed to come out at midnight on Tuesday, August 23 after he was introduced to much hoopla the previous day.
The presence of well-known internet comedians like Brain Jotter and Sabinus in the reveal video attracted a large audience.
Upon announcing the new signing, Don Jazzy took to social media and stated;
It’s that time again when we bring to you another young talent from the Mavin Academy. Meet BAYANNI. He has gone through series of defining moments and is ready to be unveiled to the world. Pls Welcome @itsbayanni , the newest MAVIN. MavinActivated #BAYANNI.”
According to Bayanni, who claims to have been releasing freestyles since 2016, it was a message from Don Jazzy in 2019 that changed his life, and he decided to publish a snippet of it on his Instagram page.
Don Jazzy popped into his direct message, said hello to him in French, and said he liked reading some of his posts.

Bayanni responded eagerly, and it felt that just that one message had a profound impact on his life.
In his words;
“Lonely nights, dark mornings, waiting for the sun to shine on me while posting my freestyles back in 2016.
Then I got a DM in 2019 from someone I respect so much, till date it still feels like a dream …but don’t wake me…
@donjazzy thank you for giving this young boy a life changing opportunity. My immense gratitude to @tegamavin @rimouuune and everyone on the Mavin team.
Sit back, relax and enjoy as I take you on this journey. I’m ready, ARE YOU???”
