Award-winning Nigerian singer and songwriter Tiwa Savage has said her exit from Mavin Records helped the label focus on Rema, a young music Afrobeats artiste.
The label which is owned by veteran music producer, Don Jazzy, a music producer, signed Remain 2019.
Tiwa Savage spoke about the record label in a chat with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host of the BBNaija reality TV show.
The songstress spoke about Don Jazzy gave her a chance and signed her even when other labels refused. Tiwa also revealed the reason for her exit and the impact it had on Rema.
In her words;
“…Jazzy man, who doesn’t want to work with Jazzy? To me, he’s not just a producer. He developed artists; sound. I saw what he did with Dr. Sid, who was different from Wande and DPrince and D’banj“.
I’m seeing him create stars, not just giving them a beat. I was like I wanted someone to take me to that next level. Apart from that, I felt like a family. When I first started, I was with TJ (TBillz) and I was always under someone.
“And then I went to Flytime and Mavin. At some point, I just wanted to step out on my own and take that risk for once. Then, I’d been with him for like six-seven years. It was a very difficult time.
“I cried, went off social media for like months. I was depressed; scared of doing it. But I also knew that I didn’t want to not do it and later regret. It was the right move and they gave me their blessing”.
