Sensational pop singer and Universal Music act Tiwa Savage, has come out to react to Burna Boy’s statement.
The former Mavin first lady was recently interviewed on Bella Naija, where she revealed a lot of things.
When she was confronted with Burna Boy’s criticism of international deals.
On Burna Boy’s Criticism of “International Deals
I think it’s important for artists to be 100% sure and aware of what they’re getting themselves into, especially when it comes to contracts. Burna is 1000% correct. People took it out of context, maybe. It’s a great advice to any artist: make sure you see your lawyers and do your personal research.
She also said;
It took me a year to conclude this deal. It took that long for a reason. It took a year to convince them that I don’t want this and I want that and this is the reason why. They understood. I feel blessed in the position I’m in. I have an amazing deal with UMG and I agree with Burna that while we’re pushing Africa to the World, we need to be careful that we don’t lose ourselves. I think that’s what he’s trying to say.
Bella Naija also took to their Instagram page to share the response with a picture.
