On Friday, 24th of February, Mavin Records’ Boss, Don Jazzy unveiled his latest business initiative, a free WiFi service -Flobyt in Lagos.
The launching of the initiative was held at Renaissance Hotel in Lagos where it was revealed that Don Jazzy partnered with founder of Tsaboin, Dele Odufuye, to make the dream a reality.
According to the Mavin boss, Flobyt is a free WiFi service that is installed across partner locations in Lagos like eateries, parks, taxis, buses, restaurants, cafés and many other businesses. This service is meant to be for patrons of businesses who want to also have access to the internet connection. The founder also said the internet doesn’t require a technical knowledge to operate it and 10-30 people can be connected to the internet concurrently while 10-80 people can do same during traffic in an area.
Speaking at the event, Don Jazzy said;
“I have always wanted to play big in the technology space and I looked for people who were sound and had a beautiful track record in the technology space. This is my first business investment in the technology space that is public while I remain a silent partner in others. I am really interested in driving Flobyts reach beyond Lagos. Our Wi-Fi is the fastest in town and those who stream our music and content as entertainers are from the US and the UK. We believe that if we improve our services the numbers can improve.”
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Odufaye said;
“You simply walk into any of our partner outlets and patronize them. While you are at that, you can log into Flobyt’s free WiFi service available. Join the “Flobyt FREE Wifi”. If your browser pops up for authentication, just visit www.mavinrecords.com or click on “Free Access” button shown to you.
“We are using state-of-the-art WiFi technology equipment that balances speed, quality of service, security and data consumption. This equipment is lightweight and easier to manage. These are the technological and business edges.”
Don jazzy further revealed that Flobyts will avail Nigerian entertainers an opportunity to begin to make a living from their craft.
“If it benefits my own company its going to benefit every other entertainer. Now fellow artistes can now have more people accessing their music and if you are staging an event, they can invite Flobyt to activate the venue. That way, they can reach their core fans that are gathered at the event”.
This is a wonderful initiative from our own Mavin Boss, we hope things like this will continue… More grease to your elbow, Don Baba J
