Nigerian singer-songwriter Tiwa Savage has signed a global recording deal with Universal Music Group that will see her music released in 60 countries.
OkayAfrica are calling it a “power move” by one of the continents biggest stars.
“It’s like a dream,” Savage says in the record company’s promotional video.
“I’m part of a huge engine and it’s definitely an honour to have an artist like me from Nigeria doing Afrobeats music, which is still fairly new to the rest of the world, and it’s exciting.
“It’s important for my story to be told, my way,” she adds.
