Tiwa disclosed this during an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
She further stated that before she joined Mavin Records, she reached out to Banky W alongside other record labels, but he refused.
Tiwa when asked why Banky W rejected her noted that he had a female artist he was working with at the time.
She 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.”
