The lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic may have eased up in some parts of the world but the gospel of safety is still being preached on a daily basis. Whilst we observe all the safety measures, we can all agree that music is about the only thing that keeps most of us feeling safe. Thanks to Dr Sid, who dropped his EP known as The interesting EP just as Mavin Records celebrated eight years in the industry.
The Supreme Mavin Dynasty popularly known as Mavin Records was founded by record producer and recording artist Don Jazzy on May 8, 2012, following the closure of Mo’ Hits Records, which he owned with D’banj. In the last eight years, Mavin Records have consistently churned out great hits that also made Barack and Michelle Obama fall in love with their artistes. Also, on the lineup for this weekend, are DRB Lasgidi who paves the way for alternative music in Nigeria and are now back with a brand new album.
Abandon all your worries this weekend and elevate your mood with these thoughtfully curated Afrobeat songs by top Nigerian artistes.
As always, remember to wash your hands frequently, boost your immune system and most importantly, stay safe! Stay home!
