Mavin isn't just a record label anymore, it's now a community of committed followers and member; a tribe that trusts their leader....


Mid last week the news of Mavin Records most epic signing of multi-genre artists, (interestingly, i know one of them personally by the way) threw a lot people off balance and left them jaw down... For most people that believed Mavin Records is about dance hall and love songs alone sorry for you... downloadIn case you don't know mavin records (which I doubt). The label is owned by Michael Collins who is popularly known as DON JAZZY. He broke into the industry when he came back to Nigeria some years ago with Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo (D'Banj). Something Peculiar about Don Jazzy and Mavin Records as a whole is the ability to build a tribe around his name and the brand. His tribe is so loyal that they would practically lynch you if you dare go against the Leader of the Supreme Mavin Dynasty (SMD) or the Dynasty itself. Continue reading

20 Feb
Audience XL

"...your paying audience isn't  just those that sit to listen, comment and like your post alone but take a step further to support your creative and intellectual gifts financially...."


The fact that you are reading this means you take your creative and intellectual abilities seriously and would want to benefit financially from your gifts as you bless the word with the outpouring of what the universe has blessed you with. Truth be told I have been so scared of putting together a body of work like this book for a lot of reasons but hiding behind fears and skepticism won't do me or the world any favours. Right from my very first experiment of organizing events back in 2011 to managing my first set of talents the same year, one question has always re-occurred is; "how do you get people to buy into all these?"

"Money won't make you rich..." - Sunday Adelaja

Hey champ! How has your week been?
First allow me welcome you to December of 2016. The count down has officially started 30 days more... Few days ago I got a copy of my bank statement for review and auditing. It's a habit I've built over the past few years... What I usually do was to keep track of my expenses on a note pad, then i upgraded to excel sheet but with Internet and mobile banking that you can state the reason for a transaction it's easier for me to keep track as I make sure that most of by transactions are either via transfer or a check for auditing reasons. Why do you need this? There are a lot of reasons but u would share a few here; Continue reading

How I messed up my 2016: 5 mistakes to avoid like plague in 2017

30 Nov
dsc_1921Some of you know who I am and some others don’t. If you know me already, that’s good and if you don’t… hmm it’s okay, it’s not your fault. It was me, I messed up! Now I am sounding like I want to break up abi? I remember having a sit down with Emeka Nobis once when I had some weight in my heart and we analyzed some things together. Did same with Cornel Agwu O on a different level. After self-reflecting, these were my conclusions and summation of mess up for 2016.
  1. Inconsistency:
I started 2016 with so much gusto and took my knowledge sharing skills to another level. I started a podcast that got listens from 6 continents (USA, UK, Australia, South America, Asia and Africa) of up to over 1000 listens. I got increased website traffic, loads of testimonials to the extent that I got commendation from the don himself; Steve Harris on my episode 10 and then I went into sleep mode for excuses I gave myself mostly. Looking back now I know I messed up. Mind you I have been recording new episodes but I guess I just gassed posting new material because my website was hacked by some funny Russians. Continue reading

StartUp Business Conference 2017: The Business of Skill

15 Jun
sbc2017 flyer official meHello and Welcome I am Silas Ozoya,

I am an Entrepreneur, Business Developer, Teacher and an Entertainment Freak.

Every year I have a goal of raising 10 entrepreneurs.  Through my coaching, mentoring and strategy sessions, I support at least one of every 10 with financial and practical business knowledge to either launch a new business (startup) or exponentially grow an existing one (SME). In 2013 “The Entrepreneur Summit" was launched. This is the background where I first started to coach startups and SMEs based on my experiences of building my companies; MADdotCOM Business Network and KampusTV NG. I discovered that motivation to start is not all but the actual support (knowledge and financial intelligence) are as important. The motivation to start is easy but the tenacity to continue is where practical knowledge comes into play so as to not leave the "motivated and inspired mind" wondering in the darkness of harsh realities making them give up half way. So I opted to provide intelligent solutions. Continue reading
