Well, that’s the story according to NET.
The online portal reports that the Mavin boss, Don Jazzy is set to lead his 6 other acts to ‘port’ from telecoms giants, MTN, to their rival, Globacom.
A source in the industry allegedly confirmed the information to them.
“The facts before us revealed that Don Jazzy has just two months left on his MTN deal while Tiwa Savage, D’Prince and Dr Sid who are fellow ambassadors might port with him as Glo is said to have indicated interest in signing the trio of Mavin youngsters, Korede Bello, Díja and Reekado Banks.
Anybody else find it hilarious how “port” has become part and parcel of Nigerian lexicon?
A source close to the negotiations said news of Don Jazzy’s availability came up just as Globacom was preparing offers to add Mavin’s rising musicians, Di’Ja, Reekado Banks and Korede Bello to their fold of brand ambassadors.
The source further added that not only is Glo eager to sign the young ones all at once, they are determined to break the bank by also offering a record -breaking deal to the Mavin Records CEO”
Glo is really throwing the money around though. Earlier today, they bid on an Ivorian telecoms company.
