Universal Music Group signed Tiwa Savage

Universal Music Group (UMG) has officially announced an exclusive global recording agreement with Tiwa Savage.

Tiwa Savage’s future music will be released internationally through UMG’s operations in more than 60 countries worldwide.

”Projects will be executively produced by Efe Ogbeni of Regime Music Societe and Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna”, it noted.

The singer-songwriter was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and later received a scholarship to study Professional Music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts before embarking on a career that has seen her achieve creative success across a multitude of mediums.

In her reaction, Tiwa Savage said, “My biggest goal is to make Africa proud. I’m so excited for this moment and I’m thankful to Sir Lucian Grainge and my new UMG family for their belief in my dreams. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my career and I’m more ready than I have ever been.”

Adam Granite, EVP Market Development, Universal Music Group said, “We are looking forward to partnering with Tiwa and her team to help her music reach new audiences around the world.

”As one of Africa’s most successful, influential and dynamic singer-songwriters, Tiwa has truly global ambitions and UMG is committed to helping her in achieving them.”

Efe Ogbeni & Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna of Stealth Management said, “We’re very proud to be a part of this ground-breaking partnership between Tiwa Savage and Universal Music Group.

”Tiwa is undoubtedly the most hardworking and talented female artist crossing over from Africa to the rest of the world, and UMG has demonstrated its commitment to the continent by placing its formidable machinery behind her amazing career.

”Partnerships like these symbolise the hopes and dreams of so many talented artists back home in Africa and it is an honour to be the executive producers of her project.”

Simi leaves her record label following the expiration of her contract

X3M Music has just announced the departure of one of its recording artistes Simisola Ogunleye simply known as 'Simi' following the expiration of her recording contract. 

The Lagos-based label confirmed in a statement signed by A&R executive Vincent Nwanze, that both parties have determined to not renew the contract.

Her special voice, an unassuming look, and writing talent are what attracted her to X3M when she was signed in 2014. Her debut album for X3M (her career second) was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017, and named album of the year in 2018, by The Headies Awards. 

Simi's final album for X3M music ‘Omo Charlie Champagne’ was released on April 19, 2019. X3M music is reputed to have a bias for original, alt music; especially in an industry dominated by pop. 

X3M Music’s management said: 

"we only sign artistes that we love and believe in. We know our taste in music is rather different; but we only sign talents who meet that taste. Fortunately, we have been able to find millions of music lovers here and abroad, who share similar tastes, as is evident in the success of all the artistes we have worked with, including Simi who is without any doubt one of the biggest music talents in the country today…"

X3M Music, part of the X3M group, was founded in 2008 by Steve Babaeko,

Peter Okoye(Mr. P) speaks on ‘sleeping’ with Diamond Platnumz wife, ‘crashing’ his marriage

Nigerian music superstar, Peter Okoye of the defunct P-Sqaure, also known as Mr. P, has reacted to the claim by Tanzania music star, Diamond Platnumz, that he (Mr P) slept with his wife and crashed his marriage.
Platnumz, during an interview on Tuesday on his Wasafi Radio, had said, “Zari was dating P-Square’s Peter a few months before she and I got our first baby, Latiffah Dangote.
“I read messages that she and Peter sent each other via mobile phone. I even confronted her.”
But responding to the allegations on CoolFM, Mr P said it was “stupid” of the Tanzanian singer to make such utterances.
He said, “To be honest with you, I do not know what they are talking about. I can never, and would never say anything.
“Please, I have a new single, and I do not want to get distracted. I do not want to comment on Diamond’s allegations. In fact, it is stupid.
“Once people discover that you are doing well, the devil just finds a way of rearing its ugly head. Nonetheless, we are friends with Diamond Platnumz; he is my guy.”
Recall that Zari, Platnumz’s wife, had taken to Instagram to rubbish the claims, noting that those who dared believe her ex-husband were just as “stupid” as he was.
She had written, “He alleged that I had a relationship with P-Square’s Peter, and another with my personal trainer… If you guys are going to believe a word that comes from him, the same man who denied his own blood, then you are all stupid just like him.
“I am asking you to respect me; stay where you are; the kids and I are doing fine without you
