Today we will be revealing five things you need to know about Mavin, if you already don't, about this phenomenal Nigerian Record Label.
- the real name of Mavin Record is SUPREME MAVIN DYNASTY... yea, we know, it is a mouthful for one label, guess that's why they decided to just flow with being called Mavin, but why not Supreme (sounds like ice cream)... what about Dynasty??? (Sounds like Fantastic League cartoon) or... whatever! Mavin it is, and we love it like that.
