Last month, it was officially announced that Tiwa Savage, had finally solidified her deal with American rapper, Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

Taking things a bit further, her profile, has now been uploaded onto the label’s official website.

Tiwa, via a quote on her profile, revealed how estranged husband, Teebillz, played a major role in creating the Tiwa Brand we all love today.

According to the singer, Teebillz, made her dump her songwriting career abroad to kick-start a very successful music career in Nigeria.

I met Tunji and he told me about the growing Afrobeats scene back home in Nigeria.

He thought I was wasting my talents being a songwriter and a backing singer and pushed me to move back to Africa.

At first I thought it was a bit of a step backwards but he was adamant that this was my future.

He knew it was what would set me apart from the rest

Before returning home, Tiwa Savage, had a music deal with Sony/ATV as a writer, which saw her co-writing songs for international stars like; Babyface, Kat Deluna, Fantasia and Monica.

She was also privileged to provide background vocals for George Micheal, Mary J Blige, and on late Whitney Houston’s 2009 album ‘I Look To You’.
