In a surprise move, Iyanya has announced that he is set to launch a new record label and album soon.
“I’ll be launching my new label n new album soon”, the singer wrote on Instagram.
Iyanya did not say further leaving fans to speculate on how this will affect his relationship with his current record company Made Men Music Group (MMMG) which he co-owns with long time manager and partner, Ubi Franklin.
The duo set up the record label in 2011, where they have Tekno, Selebobo, Mr Chibbz, and Tonye Garrick are all signed. Singer Emma Nyra was once part of the record label, until she acrimoniously departed in 2014 due to personal reasons. Baci was also affiliated with the label for six years, but he was never offered a contract.
This year, Iyanya is currently returning to his R&B roots. He is planning a collaborative R&B album with EME singer, Banky W.
