Tiwa Savage has signed an exclusive global recording agreement with Universal Music Group (UMG), the music-based entertainment global leader announced in a statement on Thursday.
Under the new agreement, Tiwa’s future music will be released internationally through UMG’s operations in more than 60 countries worldwide.
This deal makes Tiwa the first Nigerian female act to be signed to the label.
As a result of the new deal, the singer has also left the Don Jazzy-founded Mavin Records which she joined seven years ago during its transition from Mo’Hits Records.
Universal Music Group also announced that Tiwa’s future projects will be executively produced by Efe Ogbeni of Regime Music Societe and Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna.
Speaking on the deal, Tiwa said, “My biggest goal is to make Africa proud. I’m so excited for this moment and I’m thankful to Sir Lucian Grainge and my new UMG family for their belief in my dreams. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career and I’m more ready than I have ever been.”
Adam Granite, EVP Market Development, Universal Music Group said, “We are looking forward to partnering with Tiwa and her team to help her music reach new audiences around the world. As one of Africa’s most successful, influential and dynamic singer-songwriters, Tiwa has truly global ambitions and UMG is committed to helping her in achieving them.”
Efe Ogbeni and Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna of Stealth Management said, “We’re very proud to be a part of this ground-breaking partnership between Tiwa Savage and Universal Music Group. Tiwa is undoubtedly the most hardworking and talented female artist crossing over from Africa to the rest of the world.
“UMG has demonstrated its commitment to the continent by placing its formidable machinery behind her amazing career. Partnerships like these symbolise the hopes and dreams of so many talented artists back home in Africa and it is an honour to be the executive producers of her project.”
In a caption accompanying the post, he wrote, “Our darling Tiwatope. We at Mavin would like to say a very big thank you for being such an inspiration to all of us, a friend, a sister. It’s been an epic journey with you and we are very proud of what we have achieved together.
“As you start this new chapter in your life we want you to know that we are solidly behind you and can’t wait for the world to see what we have always believed you can be. Your jersey as the First Lady of Mavin will forever be yours as we do not intend to fill that position with anyone else.
“We love you from the bottom of the heart and pray GOD’s blessings to continue to follow you. Amennnn.”
During her time with Mavin, Tiwa transformed from just a talented singer to an A-lister, show headliner and multiple award-winner.
Throughout summer 2019, Tiwa will play a string of international festivals including the UK’s Wireless Festival, Afropunk in Paris and Oh My! Festival in Amsterdam.

You Don’t Need to Beat a Woman to Punish Her, Just Do These Three Things
No matter how much a man and a woman love themselves, there is still a possibility of having misunderstandings.
In fact, what keeps most relationships and marriages together is the ability to settle problems not really because there are no problems.
Women are very dramatic creatures, if you’re not creatively smart as a guy, they can make you move mad to the extent that you’d want to tear them slap. Yes! Women can be that annoying and provocative.
In today’s world, only weak and dumb men hit their women. Instead of beating a woman, there are other ways you can punish her and it will even get to her more than using violence.
Below Are The Ways You Can Punish You Woman Without Hitting Her:-
1. Taking Away Your Attention
Firstly, what is attention, being attentive is simply our way to show our partner we care and make them feel important and special, when a man doesn’t create time for their woman it hurts them.
If you’re not been caring to them anymore, or you stop giving them attention all of a sudden.
These things hurt most women and in most cases, they are the ones who will do everything to get your attention back.
2. Deny Her Some Things
This is one of the ways you can punish a woman. Denying her certain things that you normally give her for her own benefit will make her realize her mistakes.
You can decide not to give her money to do her own hair or to buy cloth, depending on what she asked you or what you normally do for her.
This is not saying that you should deny your responsibility as a man. Ensure you provide food for the family and every other thing you are expected to do as a married man.
3. Deny Her Intimacy
In any relationship, intimacy is what keeps the relationship alive. Denying your woman intimacy is another way of letting your woman know what she did was wrong.
If she really wants to be intimate with you, she will apologize and you guys will have apology sex.
These methods are more preferable when you want to punish a woman that offended you. Domestic violence is a crime against womanhood and humanity.
Don’t lay your hands on a woman when you have problems, instead use any of these methods.
Aside from all these, the best way of settling a misunderstanding is through discussion.
If your woman does something that you don’t like, sit her down and tell her what she did you don’t like it instead of you laying your hands on her.
