Mavin Record releases official statement about Wande Coal’s exit

Mavin-Records-Art-1024x717An 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 action.

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.

Signed

Management

Mavin Records Ltd.’

    Reading this letter, these are the cryptic messages i was able to decode.

    ‘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.” – SARCASM

    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” – BASICALLY, Wande is a BUSH man.

    “It is unfortunate that conflicting priorities contributed to the premature curtailment of a hitherto fruitful accord.” – I’ve spoken my BIG ENGLISH, your move Wande.

    “Mavin Records reaffirms its goal to constantly provide high quality music to our fans and introduce new and exciting talent into the industry.”- We already have YOUR replacement lined up.

    “We wish Wande Coal the best of luck in all his future endeavours.”- SARCASM. We actually do wish your vocal chords get infected with Tuberculosis and you die a poor man begging under ojuelegba bridge.
