Nigerian female artiste, Tiwa Savage has revealed that during her entry into the music industry some years ago, she faced some rejections from industry bigwigs at the time.
According to her, she contacted musician turned politician, Banky Wellington popularly known as Banky W to sign her onto his Empire Mates Entertainment but Banky turned her down.
She added that, she was rejected by Don Jazzy too when the Mavins Records was then known as Mo Hits.
She spoke to Ebuka Obi-Uchendu in an exclusive interview. Below are her words.
Tiwa Savage 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.”
