Sources divulged that Folly and Tiwa Savage had been an item for awhile and it was the affair that gave birth to the ownership of the label by the politician.Insiders hinted that when D’banj pulled out of Mo’hit Records it was Folly Coker that came to the rescue of Tiwa and the rest of the team by investing some money to set up the Mavin Records and used Don Jazzy as the front man of the business.
