Fresh off her Roc Nation deal, Tiwa Savage is definitely one of the biggest African female singers today and she continues to reinstate that position.
The Mavin singer who recently inked a mouth-watering deal with Jay Z’s ‘ Roc Nation’ is doing exceptionally well for herself as her profile has been officially embedded in the label’s official website.
Tiwa Savage has made a revelation via a quote on her profile. The singer revealed how estranged husband, Teebillz, played a major role in creating the Tiwa Brand we all love today. According to the singer, Teebillz, made her dump her songwriting career abroad to kick-start a very successful music career in Nigeria.
I met Tunji and he told me about the growing Afrobeats scene back home in Nigeria. He thought I was wasting my talents being a songwriter and a backing singer and pushed me to move back to Africa. At first I thought it was a bit of a step backwards but he was adamant that this was my future. He knew it was what would set me apart from the rest
Tiwa Savage before returning to Nigeria had a music deal with Sony/ATVas a songwriter.
This deal saw her co-writing songs for international stars like; Babyface, Kat Deluna, Fantasia and Monica. She was also privileged to provide background vocals for George Micheal, Mary J Blige, and on late Whitney Houston’s 2009 album ‘I Look To You’.
