7. Briant “Bee-High” Biggs Is Partly Responsible For Her Roc Nation Deal
Jay-Z announced on Twitter that his cousin was in Nigeria scouting for talents, little did we know it was Tiwa Savage that will get signed on to Roc Nation.
“I know a lot of artists have gotten international deals, but for me the genuine passion for Africa was just there and it started with me and Bee-High and just him taking time to come to Nigeria several times. That speaks volumes,”
8. Roc Nation Is Interested In Pushing The African Culture To The World
According to Tiwa Savage, Roc Nation isn’t just interested in her music alone and they are interested in a lot more.
“I’m still very pro-African and you can’t take that away from me,” she points out. “There’s nothing you can do to change that. I think only time will tell and they need to be rest assured that Roc Nation is really trying to introduce the African culture to the world, not even just America. When I say culture, they’re not just interested in the music, they’re interested in the fashion, in the culture and in the movement. I think that is because everybody is kind of reconnecting back with each other. A lot of the Africans in the diaspora are connecting back home and they see that buzz and they’re just trying to assist in building that bridge.”
9. Her Third Studio Album Is In The Works
Tiwa Savage is already laying down tracks for her third studio album and she’s looking for that sound that will cater for all fans and cut across.
“It all starts with great music,” Tiwa says. “I love that at Roc Nation they’re giving me the liberty to create great music. Mentally, I’m just trying to create something that crosses over, but appeals to Africa. Once we get the right music, I think the music is going to determine what we do. Obviously, the press, the plugging in to radios, the strategic collaborations, all of that is in the works. It depends on the music that we determine which artist I collaborate with.”
