Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage talked extensively about her rise in the entertainment industry, struggles, and her life in general.
In a recent interview hosted by Ebuka on Bounce Radio Live, the Koroba crooner said that major record labels in Nigeria refused to sign her at the beginning of her career, the reason she created one with former manager and ex-husband, Teebillz.
On why she went back to Mavin records, Tiwa stated that she went back after being originally rejected because Don Jazzy was an amazing producer who created stars and the label also felt like family.
She mentioned that she left Mavin years later because she wanted to take the risk of being on her own even though it was a scary move, and added that sometimes people had to leave for other acts to grow.
The singer further said that male artistes were always excused for some behaviours but females always got thrown under the bus for doing the same thing.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Tiwa Savage opened up about her childhood and the challenges she faced as a Nigerian kid abroad.
Tiwa revealed she moved to London with her mom when she was 10, and settling in was a problem as she got bullied a lot by her school mates.
According to her, the bullying pushed her to attempt to take her life on two different occasions. She revealed she hated her skin colour and wanted to bleach her skin.
