MansMark Records is a recording label that was established in 1983 with its first release in Nigeria. The label was launched with the album titled “Love Candidate” under the founder’s then stage name Ayo Manuel. MansMark Records’ founder, Prince Ayo Ajisebutu thinks of conscious music as a natural remedy for world peace. It heals without side effects and has a power much like that of water. It leads without forceful intervention. It effortlessly purifies a troubled soul and unites people without the negative consequences of personal gain. Music is the true solution to global peace.
Our dream for a more united world is what gave birth to the father and son relationship between Prince Ayo and Babatunde Olatunji. Olatunji spent his entire life using his drums to call for love and peace. In 2000 the label signed an exclusive recording agreement with Mr. Olatunji and his last studio album was recorded. We are honored to have the last master recordings of Babatunde Olatunji the legendary Nigerian master drummer and we aspire to keep his legacy alive.
