On January 18, 2020, D’Prince, MAVIN recording artist and Head Honcho of Jonzing world, a name derived from a single off his 2012 album, Frenzy unveiled his second artist in two years. His name is Ruger.
In March 2019, he unveiled Headies Next Rated Winner, Rema to Jonzing, an imprint of the Don Jazzy-founded and Tega Oghenejobo-led MAVIN. Ruger, who was formerly known as Mikki Drey will become MAVIN’s first major signing since Crayon.
Unlike the Rema deal, Ruger is only signed to D’Prince’s Jonzing World, with no affiliation to MAVIN Records. Instead, it will be a joint-venture with Columbia/Sony Music. After D’Prince discovered the artist, he was approached by Columbia and the deal was done.
On his Instagram page @dprincemavin, Jonzing CEO wrote, “My people, can’t thank you all enough for the love & support you have shown to me and my family @thejonzingworld . I am indeed very grateful ❤️ for the confidence reposed on me to deliver another talent of the next gen and ensuring that the industry appreciates and recognizes the unique sounds of today.
