Tiwa Savage put ink on paper and announced that she’s signed a management and publishing deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

Nigerian star Tiwa Savage and Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy have been teasing a major deal for almost a year now. Well, they didn't disappoint.


Just this week, a move was finalized as Tiwa Savage put ink on paper and announced that she’s signed a management and publishing deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
