Nigerian award winning singer, song writer and First Lady of Africa’s popular record label, “Mavin Records,” takes a bow after representing the label for 7 years.
Tiwa Savage had a great season in 2018 as she made history as the first female to win the “Best African Act” at the “MTV European Music Awards” and also became the first African female to sell out at London’s Indigo.
The singer has signed an exclusive global recording agreement with Universal music group, an international record label.
Announcing the deal, Adam Granite, EVP market Development, Universal Music Group, said, “We are looking forward to partnering with Tiwa and her team to help her music reach new audiences around the world.”
Tiwa speaking on her arrival to the new label, she said: “My biggest goal is to make Africa proud. I’m so excited for this moment and I’m thankful to Sir Lucian Grainge and my new UMG family for their belief in my dreams. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career.”
