Tiwa Savage – “Banky W Rejected Me”

Written by on November 11, 2020

Afrobeat artiste, Tiwa Savage revealed that during her entry into the music industry, she faced rejections from industry bigshots.

She contacted musician now politician, Banky Wellington AKA Banky W to sign her onto his EME Records but Banky refused.

She added that she was rejected by Don Jazzy too when the Mavins Records was then known as Mo Hits.

Speaking to Ebuka Obi-Uchendu in an exclusive interview, Tiwa said:

“At the time when I just got back to Nigeria, I approached Banky W to sign me into his music label, but he said No.


“I guess because he was about to work with Niniola at the time. I also went to Mohits at that time, and they were working with Muna, so they turned me down and I went back to LA.

“But I later got back to Nigeria and begged Don Jazzy to sign me into Mavin records and he did.

“I’m sure EME, other records can see me now.”
