Tiwa Savage has revealed that before she achieved this superstardom, she struggled to get a producer and a record label after she returned to Nigeria from abroad.
Even more shocking is the fact that Nigeria’s R&B sensation and producer, Banky W refused to sign her when she approached him. According to Tiwa, she felt Banky wanted to concentrate on Niniola at that time, a situation that delayed her breakthrough.
The ‘All Over’ singer said it was Don Jazzy of Marvin Records who saved the day in a fresh interview she granted to BBNaija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
At the time when I just got back to Nigeria, I approached Banky W to sign me into his music label, but he said No.
I guess because he was about to work with Niniola at the time. I also went to Mohits at that time, and they were working with Muna, so they turned me down and I went back to LA. But I later got back to Nigeria and begged Don Jazzy to sign me into Mavin records and he did. I’m sure EME, other records can see me now.
