After struggling through turbulent times after the breakup from Mo'hit, we give some hearty cheers as the Mavin Crew celebrates one year anniversary.

It has been one year of continuously stunning eager fans with doses of pure genius. It has been a very busy year in the music industry and the Mavin team, headed by production maestro, Don Jazzy, hardly had time to draw breath.

The fortunes of Tiwa Savage, D'Prince, Wande Coal and Dr. Sid grew from strength to strength in the last year. The journey so far has also witnessed further additions to the family with two young and versatile producers , Altims Beats and Baby Fresh, in November last year.

The numbers were further amplified in February this year with the addition of Nigeria's foremost Disc Jockey, DJ Spinall. The Mavin Records label which was encapsulated concurrently with the release of their signature album, Solar Plexus on the May, 2012, has witnessed re-energised outputs and singles from the various artistes who make up the crew. In November came the long-awaited debut album, Frenzy, from D'Prince.

In the past few months, the crew has had fans reeling from a flurry of hit singles being knocked out. Smoking hot from the stables of these musical firebrands have been radio bangers such as: The Kick, Private Trips, Goody bag, Lady Don Dada, Without my heart, Rotate and the Birthday song by D' Prince to be released just in time for the anniversary.

The Mavin Crew are however promising to keep their beloved fans on their toes with upcoming albums from Wande Coal, Dr. Sid and the recently engaged Tiwa Savage's 'Once upon a time' which is to be released in June. It has been full steam ahead for the Mavins who have indeed, shown that the best is yet to come.
