Popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has pleaded with her former label boss, Don Jazzy, not to forget the good times they shared together in spite that she recently signed a deal with an international record company.
KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Tiwa Savage left Mavins Record after 7 years with Don Jazzy and his crew. She signed a deal with Universal Music Group on Thursday.
Following her exit, Don Jazzy took to Instagram to applaud her for achievements and all she had done for the record label while she was with them. The Mavin C.E.O said she would forever be remembered and cherished at Mavin because she was an inspiration to the group.
Tiwa Salvage, under the comment session of Don Jazzy’s post, made it known that it wasn’t easy for her to leave the team but she had to because she wanted him proud.
She shared some of the experiences she has had with him and the team, describing him as an amazing person. She further pleaded with him not reduce his level of love and attention towards her, with a promise that she will always hold him in high esteem as she as always does. She wrote:
“When I got pregnant I was nervous to tell you so I decided to tell you at the airport when we were travelling for a show. I figured you couldn’t really say much in a public place but then you told me you already knew and had already been thinking of a plan to keep my brand going while I took some time out. I was shocked because you weren’t phased by the news, you had already started making plans.
“I recorded the RED album while I was heavy and I would fall asleep during sessions and you and the whole team would crash in the studio right there with me till I woke up again and was ready to finish recording.
“There was nothing you would hear about me that ever made you mad, no outfit was too crazy, no headline was too controversial for you to handle no crazy outburst no nothing. If I said today wasn’t emotional for me I would be LYING.
“Please promise me that our relationship will never change. I only want to make you proud of me. Not every super hero has an S on their chest. You are my superhero DON DORO BUCCI.
“7 years, 7 the number of perfection. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Mavin 4life”
