 Independent label: Zomba is the largest independent music operation in the world. Jive Records is the flagship label of the Zomba Label Group, which also encompasses the record labels Jive Electro, Silvertone, Verity, Volcano and Reunion, among others. Zomba is home to some of the biggest contemporary pop, R&B, gospel, hip-hop and rock artists in the world.  Jive Records was founded in 1977 by Clive Calder in London after acquiring British citizenship. Its original parent company, Zomba, was named after the capitol of Malawi. Jive Records was formed in 1981. Jive operated as an independently managed label until 2002 when Bertelsmann Music Group acquired the remainder of Zomba for US $2.74 billion, which was at the time the largest-ever acquisition of an independent label.
