Former Marvin singer, Tiwa Savage, has agreed with Burna boy over his view on Nigerian artistes signing an International deal.
According to Tiwa Savage who also just signed a new International deal with American label Universal Music Group (UMG), she said it is important for artists to be careful before jumping on an International deal.
“I think it’s important for artists to be 100% sure and aware of what they’re getting themselves into, especially when it comes to contracts.
Burna is 1000% correct. People took it out of context, maybe. It’s great advice to any artist: make sure you see your lawyers and do your personal research. It took me a year to conclude this deal.
It took that long for a reason. It took a year to convince them that I don’t want this and I want that and this is the reason why. They understood. I feel blessed in the position I’m in. .
I have an amazing deal with UMG and I agree with Burna that while we’re pushing Africa to the World, we need to be careful that we don’t lose ourselves. I think that’s what he’s trying to say.”
