Mavin’s golden woman, Tiwa Savage,
got so many mouths agape when she got an international deal so many of her
colleagues only fantasise about. The
singer recently signed an international deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Records
and some people began to insinuate that the deal might tear Mavin apart just as
such deal allegedly tore apart Mo’hit Records which was then run by D’banj and
But then, the singer said she
wasn’t going to let such apprehension affect the advancement of her career even
as she claimed she wouldn’t know what caused the rift between D’banj and Don
“I really don’t think the
international deal was what broke Mo’Hits. I would not like to think that and I
don’t think any of us can really talk about that issue because it is only the
two of them that really know what happened between them. For me, this is a
blessing and I would not allow something that happened before to make me
nervous. Maybe this is a way for us to get a second chance as Nigerian artistes
and second chances rarely happen,” she said.
The singer who has been through the
eye of the storm due to her recent marriage crisis told urban lifestyle that
despite everything that has happened in her life, she is still happy.
“I am very happy, I am blessed. I
have a child and I have no reason why I should not be happy. I have a
beautiful, healthy son and a loving family. My career is getting stronger by
the day. I just signed an international deal, why shouldn’t I be happy?
“Not everybody loved Jesus Christ,
so who is Tiwa Savage in the scheme of things? I am nobody. I am just somebody
God has put a talent in. In all honesty, when I encounter negative criticisms,
I just focus on the people that love me. You cannot make anyone love you, so I
try not to convince people that don’t love me. I would rather focus on the
people that love me and make sure I do not disappoint them,” she said.
