A Nigerian student identified as Abayomi has expressed his delight after being accepted as an intern at Mavin Headquarters.
In July 2023, a 300-level Obafemi Awolowo University student addressed an open letter to Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy, requesting an internship with the music label.
He wrote in part: “I want to shoot my shot to the CEO/Owner of that building. @DONJAZZY
“Dear Don Jazzy, I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. First and foremost, I want to express my admiration for your exceptional contributions to the Nigerian music industry.
“Your talent, vision, and relentless pursuit of excellence have not only earned you widespread acclaim but have also served as an inspiration for countless aspiring musicians like myself.
“My name is Abayomi, and I am a 300L student of the Music Department at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU). I am writing to you with a humble request and a glimmer of hope. As part of my degree program, I am required to undertake an internship in a music-related organization.
“Given your esteemed position as the founder and CEO of Mavin Records, I can think of no better place to gain invaluable industry experience than at your record label headquarters.”
Abayomi, who studies music at OAU, finally got the chance he had hoped for.
He thanked everyone who reposted his posts and Don Jazzy for providing him the opportunity to work at Mavin.
He wrote, “I’m overjoyed and immensely grateful to everyone who reposted my open letter to @DONJAZZY and Mavin Records for the internship. Your collective support has turned my dream into reality, and I can’t thank you enough. 🙏 Special thanks to @the_ezinne your kindness means the world to me! 💫”
