Jay Z’s record label, Roc Nation signs Iyanya

Information reaching us has it that Nigerian singer and Mavin Records latest artiste, Iyanya, may have signed a mouth watering deal with American rapper, Jay Z’s record label  Roc Nation. The information has it that Iyanya jetted out of the country last week, in the company of Director of Communications, Temple Management Company, Terfa Tilley-Gyado, as they headlined an entertainment panel at the Africa Business Conference, which held at the prestigious Georgetown University, Washington DC. *A still shot from the video Iyanya who is still in New York, apparently decided to use one stone to kill two birds as he has joined his label mate, Tiwa Savage, to sign for Roc Nation. He teased fans and the media with photos, indicating that he may be signing a new deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. In some of the photos he posted on his Instagram page, Iyanya was captured sitting on the same sofa that Tiwa Savage sat on, in July 2016, when she signed her management deal with the New York based company. The “Kuru kere” crooner who took to his Instagram page to spill the beans, wrote, “iyanyaBuilding a brand new music nation with @thetemplecompany X @rocnation X @mavinrecords #Up2something,” But when contacted to confirm the new deal, TMC, media officer, Femi Salawu said, “We will provide a detailed press release in due course.” He, however, added that “TMC and Mavin Records are focused on building bridges globally for the benefit of our talents. Both companies’ primary objective is to continually maximise the opportunities in the African continent as well as explore and develop new frontiers across the globe. “Strategic international partnerships are key in achieving these objectives aimed at raising the profile of Mavin’s talents and our other talents. As the world is a global village, we are positioned as global players in the industry in bridging all divides globally.”

Trending Photo: Fans celebrate Tiwa & Teebillz coming back as couple

Tiwa Savage & Teebillz fans are celebrating the coming back celebrity couple . What God has joined together, let no man put asunder.

Untold story: How Tiwa Savage, Teebilz reunion excite fans

Tiwa-Tee-BillzFemale Star Singer Tiwa Savage and husband Tunji ‘Teebilz’ Balogun reconciliation is realy talk of the town.

There is an indication that singer Tiwa Savage and her estranged husband, Tunji Balogun, may have decided to patch up the broken bits of their marriage and start again. The gossip mill is agog with a story that the couple has been making moves to reunite after a stormy breakup that generated so much noise in the mass media a couple of months ago.

Evidence that critics have been watching the celebrity couple closely emerged on Wednesday when a popular Nigerian blog reported that Tiwa and her husband had been attending a counselling clinic somewhere in Lagos. The report also insinuated that the couple were seen attending an event together on one occasion.

If this is true, it means that the celebrities must have made up their minds to push their differences aside and rekindle the spark in their relationship. This is by all means good news to many fans of the singer, who have privately wished for a development of this nature.
