Tiwa Savage says Roc Nation isn’t trying to change her but to expose the world to her talent. Tiwa, who is primarily signed under Nigerian label Mavin Records explained in a Hot97 interview with New York radio host, Ebro Darden that Roc Nation is only taking her music to where her label can’t reach.
Tiwa explains how she ended up signing with the New York base label, “I met B High (Jay Z’s cousin, and Roc Nation chief of mobile strategies), I got a call, and he mentioned it…He was serious.” Says the singer; “I love the fact that they are not trying to change me. They really just want to bring what I already have to offer to the rest of the world, and they truly believe in the movement. So yeah, I’m really excited about it,” she said.
The news of her signing with Roc Nation has been making rounds but the singer was mum about the developments of her contract.
“The reason why we didn’t really make too much noise about it is because a lot of people come over from Africa and they say they’ve got this deal and that deal, and then nothing happens. We just wanted to do it the proper way, get it official. I didn’t want to do that to my people. I wanted them to really believe that it was really happening, so we wanted to wait for the right time, and the time is now,” she added.
