The star singer disclosed that when she first came to Nigeria, she approached famous singer, Bankole Wellington a.k.a Banky W to sign her into his music label, EME but he turned her down because of female singer, Niniola.
Tiwa Savage made the shocking revelation in a recent chat with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
She said; “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.”
For those who don’t know, Tiwa Savage left his former boss, Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records to sign an international deal with Universal Music Group (UMG) in 2019.
