    That’s how her husband would have just scattered her hustle! Congrats tiwa!

    • Seriously

      June 8, 2016 at 4:53 pm

      It sounds good but I hope it doesn’t turn out like Kanye/d’banj. I feel like signing with or doing any thing with an American label affects African music and stardom as a whole because the way things are some here is completely different from naija. You become more restricted and trying to appeal to both audiences.
      Nonetheless, congrats Tiwa.
      Don Jazzy stay looking confused all the time. His facial expression is funny.

    TIWA!!!!! Destined for Greatness. Kudos Don Baba J!! Much respect to my Nigerian people. But please let this not be like the DBanj /Kanye saga. I trust Don Jazzy knows whats best and will pull out at the slightest issue. Make sure the contracts are seal-proof biko.

    The same smile Don Jazzy gave when D’banj met Kanye, then later they seperated because their dreams were not aligned.

      Dbanj had no dream lol don jazzy knew what he wanted today see what is happing for Tiwa soon kerede and reekado. Rudeboyz record muna and Lucy these people jazzy and Paul know what they r doing in music.

      June 8, 2016 at 4:05 am

      It was slave contract dbanj went to sign and donjazzy as a smart business man decided to be a King in Nigeria. It is a management deal with tiwa. They wont tell wat record to put, when and when not to put music out.

      What wizkid and co are doing now is the direction dbanj should have gone…still be in ur label and get that int’l recognition, these Americans dnt care, all they care abt is the mney so make sure u re benefitting also and ur fan bade still standard in Africa. You had license to kanye went yet u didnt get to work with top notch producers….but cnt deny he is among those that put the Nigeria music out there sha

    You maybe wishing him failure in your dreams,but the reality when you wake is that Dbanj is doing well.Be rest assured the kokomaster’s deal is intact,all the negative post against him where sponsored.
    Don’t be fooled,He’s doing very well.

      Keep living in a bubble shogbo? Even a lil kid knows dbanj doesn’t have as much following at least in Nigeria as he did back then.

    My Bible talk am say, “Time and Patience…” This is the man Dbanj struggled to get in his league but Don Jazzy knew it is better to be a big fish in a small pond just with time the big Fishes will swim to your pond and notice you. How far Dbanj and Kanye sef.
    Tiwa’s husband will be boiling and rolling in the mud now. With did they say again about bouncing back with success to kill them? This is perfect.
    The time and chance has happened. Baba God pick my call.


    June 8, 2016 at 6:16 am

    I am proud of Tiwa! Ride on…


    June 8, 2016 at 6:17 am

    I am proud of Tiwa! Ride on…
    Dbanj is still one of the best acts we have in Africa. Haters should back off!

    Its sad to see Don Jazzy happy for a same cause that prompted a separation between him and dbanj. He decided to quit and break up mohits because dbanj wanted an international deal with Good Music. I am just wondering why Don Jazzy is suddenly happy and comfortable now to see tiwa sign international deal with Roc ( the same move fought Dbanj over)
    This Don Jazzy Guy,I dont know what to think of you.
    You didnt want Dbanj with Good music but you want tiwa with Roc Music.

    • Five Reasons Why Don Jazzy Might Be Happier About Tiwa's Deal than He was about Dbanj's deal

      June 8, 2016 at 8:51 pm

      1. Maybe the timing wasn’t right. Compare 2011 to 2016. In 2011, PSquare collaborated with Akon. DBanj did “Oliver Twist.” Whiles those efforts were successful, you can never say that they are bigger than Wizkid’s collaboration with Drake topping the Billboard `100 chart or Kiss Daniel’s album debuting at number 16 on Billboard’s chart. Doesn’t that prove that the world is more ready for African music in 2016 than it was in 2011?

      2. Maybe the deal was costing too much money and they weren’t going to make enough money from it (remember Don Jazzy said it cost $3 million)

      3. Maybe Jay Z was making a better offer than Kanye West was. Remember that Kanye made Dbanj the offer, Jay Z made Tiwa this offer. Kanye and Jay Z DO NOT own record businesses together; they are entirely different entities

      4. Maybe Dbanj alienated Don Jazzy once Don Jazzy expressed misgivings about the offer. Remember that immediately Dbanj signed the GOOD music, he shot the Oliver Twist video. Neither of his Mohits colleagues were in the video whereas before he always shot videos with them. Is that not enough to suggest that maybe Dbanj felt like they were village champions and they weren’t taking risks like he was so they were on different wavelengths?

      5. History has proven that Jay Z develops artists better than Kanye West does. Jay Z picked up Rihanna, Rita Ora and even Kanye himself. Kanye picked up Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, Kid Cudi and Big Sean. Compare the state of Rihanna and Rita Ora’s careers now to that of Pusha T and Big Sean. You’ll see that Jay’s artists are way ahead of Kanye’s artists. Maybe Jazzy felt that Jay Z would do better things for Tiwa than Kanye did for Dbanj, thus making Jay Z the better choice.

      There! I’ve given you five perfectly legitimate reasons why Don Jazzy might prefer Jay Z’s deal now to Kanye’s deal then. Remember that Jay Z’s people visited Don Jazzy recently in Nigeria. That means that they’ve been working on a better deal for a long time. Have you considered the fact that had Dbanj been a little patient, MAYBE, just MAYBE he might be the one to sign this deal?
      Me I feel like Don Jazzy and Dbanj made a practical business decision to part company and that it was just business and not personal. But outsiders (Dr Sid, Bizzle, possibly other Mohit workers, the media and we the public) kept pouring kerosene into the fire and carrying the matter atop our heads like geles and the thing blew up.

    @Dear all,

    First of all I GREET you ALL. Contrary to the MASS I am NOT HAPPY about this news. To me it is a DECISION Tiwa would REGRET. Yes she would DEFINITELY have “SUCCESS” after this DEAL. She would sell MILLIONS of ALBUMS and her MONEY would INCREASE. Sadly the PRICE for it would be her SOUL, her PRECIOUS SOUL. Jay-z is a DEVIL WORSHIPPER and he shows it EVERYWHERE. When you ASSOCIATE yourself with such AGENT of DARKNESS you have to BECOME a MEMBER. It is a MUST. What SHALL it PROFIT a man to GAIN the WHOLE world and LOSE his SOUL? VANITY UPON VANITY. Be CONTENTED with what GOD gives you, NEVER seek for the DEVIL’s support to make your DREAMS come TRUE. Have a GREAT day and stay BLESSED 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Exactly what I thought! The price for this deal will be illuminati inspired music, cryptic messages and and pronunciations masked in a very sweet beat and angelic voice! God help us! Many are blind!

      Thank you for this comment. I agree with you. Thank you for speaking my mind. We all wish her well but seriously all that glitters is not gold. “She cannot eat her cake and have it” there is always a price to pay for the extreme fame and fortune she will get.

    June 8, 2016 at 8:13 am

    congrats girl. pls nobody should talk about why she needs to sign with them, she needs them bcos America is the biggest music market in the world, you need to be recognized over there, she can be successful here but also need to be more successful there. I believe she can do great things. roc nation are great at marketing

  26. Nefertiti

    June 8, 2016 at 8:13 am

    Too much said in such a short time over a picture.
    Be slow to speak, quick to hear and slow to anger….
    Judge nothing before the time
    Wait for the trio in the picture to put out a “verifiable” statement.

    Note: If your choice is worldly music, you shouldn’t be surprised by the lyrical content.
    Over the years,it has gone downhill though there are still some clean ones.

    Wow! Attacks were made before this next step for TIWA! They really say the devil only attacks you if there is greatness in you…. See how her “husband” wanted to destroy all this…. WOW
