Seattle-based music licensing startup SyncFloor has partnered with Mavin Records, one of Nigeria’s best-known local record labels.
The deal aims to bring the label’s catalog to more potential sync buyers via the newly launched Mavin Records SyncSite.
SyncFloor was co-founded by 20 year Microsoft veteran Kirt Debique and veteran IP attorney Cestjon McFarland.
The company recently launched its commercial marketplace, along with a sister site SongsForPodcasters.

Last January, Mavin secured a multi-million dollar investment from Kupanda Holdings, a joint venture between pan-Africa investment company Kupanda Capital and TPG Growth.
The label is home to local artists like Johnny Drille, Di’ja, D’Prince and Korede Bello (pictured), whose breakout hit Do Like That has been streamed over 200m times worldwide.
“Mavin Records is a powerhouse of African talent.”
