Why I penned record deal with Roc Nation –Tiwa Savage
Sensational singer Tiwatope Savage has revealed why she signed the dotted lines for an international deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.

Speaking in an interview with Vibe Magazine, the mother of one who has now joined the long list of international artists like Big Sean, DJ Khaled and Rihanna (all contracted to the Roc Nation platform which has offices in London, New York and Los Angeles) revealed that Jay Z’s genuine interest in her act made her put pen to paper on the deal.
“For someone who is not from there, coming and spending time and learning about the culture and saying that this can crossover, it made me feel really comfortable. When I went to the Roc Nation office here in New York, there was a genuine interest and genuine love. It was the same feeling when I met Jay Z.” She said.
Continuing, the Pepsi ambassador informed that; “He was genuinely interested in the African culture and you can even see from some of the artefacts he has in his office. It was a no brainier for me. I didn’t have to shop around and see what my options were.
“There are some things that when it just comes, you know it is right. That was just the situation. You hear a lot of times when people sign after a month, they’re on their own. With Roc Nation, it seems their day-by-day support is only getting stronger.”
