'Industry Nite, the weekly musical fiesta will feature the talents of all the Mavin All-stars: Dr.Sid, Tiwa Savage, D'Prince and Wande Coal next Wednesday. Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy, will also be in attendance.

The tagline for the event is 'Mavin All Stars: Live in Concert' and it will take place at the Ballroom of the Oriental Hotel in Lekki, Lagos State. The event will mark the first time the artistes are performing together since the surprise launch of the new label last month. From the record label following the announcement of the Mavin label, a compilation album, Solar Plexus, was also released.

The album has already become a runaway success with hits such as 'O ma ga,' 'Chocolate,' 'Take Banana,' 'Forever' and 'I'm a Mavin' enjoying non-stop rotation on the airwaves. The artistes will perform singles from the new album as well as snippets from old and forthcoming albums.

The Mavin artistes have expressed their excitement at performing at the headline event.

"It will be a very well organised event and we want to give our fans something they will remember", said Dr. Sid.

"I have attended previous editions but this is the first time I will perform, so I look forward to it," added D'Prince. The event will have other performers. The event will be hosted by MC Jimmy with music from DJ Spinall.

Industry Nite has become a popular occasion for Nigerian musicians and is supported by Beat FM, Trace Urban, Spinlet and FlyTime Productions.
