Some artistes in the Nigerian entertainment industry seem unhappy about Tiwa Savage’s new deal and are voicing out their concern.
News circulated of Tiwa Savage's exit from Mavin Records and her transition into international record giant, Universal Music Group. But it seems that not all artistes are excited about her latest music deal and have taken to Instagram to vent.
Burna Boy condemned Nigerian artistes who have so far signed deals with international record labels. According to the singer, his mother is the best manager he could ever have and she has advised him against being signed by international record labels, because any Nigerian who signs up with them is being sidelined and their careers will dwindle.
This is quite surprising, as Burna Boy re-hired his mother whom he sacked about two years ago for mismanagement of funds. He probably didn't expect people to see his post, as he has since brought it down when all fingers pointed to him referring to Tiwa Savage.
Dammy Krane, one of Nigeria's upcoming artistes who was arrested for fraud a few years ago and has since experienced a major setback in his musical journey, also added his quota to the subject. According to his series of posts, he believes Nigerian artistes would never amount to anything of relevance by signing on to internationally owned record labels.
He insinuated that Tiwa Savage (although he didn't mention her name) should have stuck to making music in Nigeria and refused the offer from Universal Music Group.
In all these, Peruzzi, a signed label artiste of Davido's record label, Davido Music Worldwide, has come to the rescue of Tiwa Savage by enjoining artistes like Burna Boy and Dammy Krane to be quiet and mind their business.
