Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has signed a juicy deal with Universal Music Group after seven years with Mavin Records.
Tiwa Savage, the “First Lady” of the Mavin Records owned by Don Jazzy, has entered a new “era” of her music career by moving on to a global record label.
Quite often, when artists move on from one record label to the other, there’s always an issue of bad blood between the artists and their previous record labels.
However, this is not the case between Tiwa Savage and Mavin Records as the C.E.O , Don Jazzy, has taken to Instagram to share a sweet message and wish Tiwa the best of luck in her new adventure.
In a long Instagram post, Don Jazzy wrote:
“Our darling Tiwatope. We at Mavin would like to say a very big thank you for being such an inspiration to all of us, a friend, a sister. It’s been an epic journey with you and we are very proud of what we have achieved together. As you start this new chapter in your life we want you to know that we are solidly behind you and can’t wait for the world to see what we have always believed you can be. Your jersey as the First Lady of Mavin will forever be yours as we do not intend to fill that position with anyone else. We love you from the bottom of heart and pray GOD’s blessings continue to follow you. Amennnn. #Mavin@tiwasavage”.
Tiwa Savage also replied to the post and asked that their relationship should stay the same.
“When I got pregnant I was nervous to tell you so I decided to tell you at the airport when we were traveling for a show. I figured you couldn’t really say much in a public place 🤣🙈 but then you told me you already knew and had already been thinking of a plan to keep my brand going while I took some time out. I was shocked because you weren’t phased by the news, you had already started making plans. I recorded the RED album while I was heavy and I would fall asleep during sessions and you and the whole team would crash in the studio right there with me till I woke up again and was ready to finish recording. There was nothing you would hear about me that ever made you mad, no outfit was too crazy, no headline was too controversial for you to handle no crazy outburst no nothing. If I said today wasn’t emotional for me I would be LYING. Please promise me that our relationship will never change. I only want to make you proud of me. Not every super hero has an S on their chest. You are my superhero DON DORO BUCCI. 7 years, 7 the number of perfection. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Mavin 4life #DiaFada 💪🏽🙏🏼❤️,’ Tiwa wrote.
Tiwa Savage joined the Mavin Records in 2012 when she signed a recording contract with them.
Her debut studio album “Once Upon a Time” was released on 3 July 2013. She again released her second studio album “R.E.D” on 19 December 2015. Her EP, “Sugarcane” and her final work with Mavin Records was released in September 2017.
