Published

on

Victony, Tempoe, Don Toliver, and Rema collaborated on the song “Soweto” remix, which has now reached a crucial milestone by receiving the prestigious #BRITcertified Silver certification. This certification is a noteworthy acknowledgement of the song’s popularity and success. It’s a credit to the exceptional musical talent and originality of these musicians that they have collaborated to create a track that has connected with listeners and amassed a sizable fan base.

The song has earned a significant level of sales and streams, according to the Silver certification, which further solidifies its status as an important contribution to the music industry. This success highlights the song’s significance and influence inside the music industry in addition to the artist’s commitment and talent.

However, an accolade and certification known as the BRIT Certified Silver is given to British music recordings that have attained a certain level of commercial success. It is a component of the British Phonographic Industry’s (BPI) BRIT Certified programme, which is a certification system for music sales and streams in the UK. The trade organisation that speaks for the UK’s recorded music industry is called the BPI.

A music recording must fulfil certain requirements, frequently connected to the number of sales, streaming, or downloads it has received in the UK market, to be awarded a BRIT Certified Silver certification. Depending on whether the certification is for singles, albums, or other sorts of music releases, the precise certification requirements can change over time.

Moreover, these artists are highly recognised and have made amazing contributions to the music industry. Victony is renowned for his distinctive fusion of hip-hop and alternative music. He became well-known in the Nigerian music industry thanks to his 2020 song “Maria” and the accompanying “Saturn” EP. Victony has received appreciation for his music’s storytelling abilities and lyrical depth.

Nigerian music producer and songwriter Tempoe has collaborated with several different musicians there.
He is renowned for creating popular songs and influencing the tone of many Nigerian music. Rema, a rapper and musician from Nigeria, rose to fame in 2019. He joined Mavin Records and put out his debut EP, “Rema” which featured the songs “Dumebi” and “Iron Man.” Rema’s distinctive tone won him praise from the critics and he is considered as one of Nigeria’s rising stars.

Last but not least, American rapper and musician Don Toliver is renowned for his melodious style. In 2018, he became well-known for his appearance on the track “Can’t Say” from Travis Scott’s “Astroworld” album. In 2020, Don Toliver published “Heaven or Hell,” his debut studio album, which featured songs like “No Idea” and “After Party.” For his contributions to the current hip-hop and rap scene, he has received appreciation. It is important to note these artists’ amazing achievements.

Reekado Banks Says Don Jazzy Changed His Life

In the Nigerian music industry, artists often leave their record labels due to conflicts or disagreements. However, Reekado Banks is an exception to this trend. In a recent interview with media personality Daddy Freeze, Reekado clarified that his departure from Mavin Records was amicable.

During the interview, Daddy Freeze asked Reekado about his decision to leave the label. Reekado expressed his disapproval of the general assumption that his departure was caused by bad blood. He emphasised maintaining a positive relationship with Mavin Records and its founder, Don Jazzy.

“That man took me from absolutely nothing. I wonder why anyone would think it wasn’t amicable. The end of the contract came, I wanted to leave and he (Don Jazzy) gave me his blessings,” Reekado said concerning his departure.

Reekado also spoke about how the frequent conflicts between artists and record labels in Nigeria might be why people thought he fought with Mavin Records.

“I feel like it’s a tradition in the Nigerian record label business for artists to breakout angrily from their record labels and this is being imposed on my relationship with Jazzy.” Reekado Banks said on the assumptions surrounding his departure.

Reekado further emphasised the positive nature of his departure. He described Don Jazzy, the founder of Mavin Records, as a “blessing” and someone he remains “eternally grateful” to. This statement highlights the mutual respect and appreciation between Reekado and his former label, further dispelling any rumours of a negative split.

Reekado Banks’ departure from Mavin Records stands out as a positive example in the Afrobeats industry, which has often seen messy breakups between artists and labels. Unlike Reekado’s amicable split, other artists haven’t been as fortunate.

For instance, Brymo’s legal battle with Chocolate City was a long and drawn-out affair. Similarly, Skales and Baseline Records ended their relationship on a sour note, taking each other to court. Runtown’s highly publicised dispute with Eric Many paints a similar picture.

In 2022, the industry was rocked by the very public fight between Marlian Records and Mohbad, which gained even more attention after the artist’s tragic passing. These cases highlight the contrasting situations in the Afrobeats world, where Reekado’s smooth departure from Mavin Records is a welcome exception.
