Official Statement by MavinRecords on Wande Coal's Exit

An official statement from Mavin
Records regarding Wande Coal's exit
from the label...
It is with deep regret that we officially
announce the departure of recording
artist Wande Ojosipe, popularly known
as Wande Coal, from Mavin Records
due to irreconcilable differences.
Over the past few months, Mavin
Records has made a concerted move to
consolidate its position in the Nigerian
music industry. Mavin has pursued a
renewed ethos to raise its standards of
quality and professionalism to a world-
class level. Wande's vision has not
aligned with ours and a few months
ago all parties mutually agreed that a
separation would be the best course of
Legal parties on both sides have spent
the past six months trying to reach an
amicable solution in terms of musical
property rights. However the decision
by Wande Coal to release 'Baby Face'
purportedly as his own material is a
direct breach of intellectual property
law and compelled an immediate
clarification on our part.
Both Mavin Records
and Wande Coal have enjoyed a
remarkable run in the course of their
working relationship. It is unfortunate
that conflicting priorities contributed to
the premature curtailment of a hitherto
fruitful accord.
Mavin Records reaffirms its goal to
constantly provide high quality music
to our fans and introduce new and
exciting talent into the industry.
We wish Wande Coal the best of luck in
all his future endeavours.
Mavin Records Ltd
