Coming on the heels of the departure of Wande Coal from Mavin Records, Founder and President of the label Michael Collins Ajereh, alias Don Jazzy, has signed on Hadiza Bell, alias Di Ja.Born of a Nigerian mother and a Sierra Leonean father, Di Ja, who was based in Canada, has been described as a pop singer, who infuses reggae and RnB into her music.
She just released her first single,Yaro, under Mavin Records.
In 2009, she released her first effort, Rock Steady, which was nominated for the Best Urban/R&B Single at the 2009 Canadian Radio Music Awards.
Di Ja, with a degree in Biology and Psychology, has joined Dr. SID, D’Prince and Tiwa Savage on the label.
According to findings, more acts are likely to join the Mavin camp, as Don Jazzy will be unveiling two artistes soon.
Wande Coal, who had been with Mavin Records since its Mo Hits Records days, left the label, following alleged conflicting ambitions.
The management said: “Over the last few months, Mavin Records has made moves to consolidate by pursuing a renewed ethos to raise quality and professionalism. Wande’s vision has not aligned with ours; and a few months ago, we agreed that a separation would be the best.”
