Remember The Famous 'BABY FACE' Drama Between Wande Coal And Don Jazzy, See The Real Reason Wande Coal Left Mavin Records


Aug. 06, 2020

These were words from the press statement released by Mavin Records at the time Wande Coal Left the record 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.’
According to the record label, Wande’s vision did not align with theirs and so that led to them parting ways. Legal parties on both sides have spent about 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 endeavors.”
Wande Coal joined Don Jazzy and D’banj’s music empire in 2006 when he signed on to now-defunct Mo’ Hits Records and featured in D’banj’s Rundown/Funk you up album on singles like “Loke”, “tonosibe” and “why me”. 
Being signed to Mo’ Hits records he is also a member of Mo’ Hits all-stars and played a major role in the released CV(Curriculum vitae) album. Wande Coal made it clear he was pitching tents with Don Jazzy following the storm raised after the separation of D’banj and Don Jazzy in March 2012, as business partners which ultimately led to the fall of Mo’Hits records. 
The same year, Wande Coal, Dr. SID, D’Prince, and Tiwa Savage were signed on to Don Jazzy’s new Record Label Mavin Records and was perceived to be at peace with the label until he stunned fans with the release of his own record label Black Diamond Entertainment in July 2013.  
No one can tell exactly when his relationship with Mavin Records began to nose dive. The release of the controversial single ‘Baby Face’ by Wande Coal which Don Jazzy claims is he eventually broke the camels back. They both released their different versions which had almost the same lyrics. The decision as to who had the better song hasn’t been reached yet.
