Tiwa Savage, is a Nigerian singer-songwriter. She is currently signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Mavin Records. She co-wrote the track "Collard greens and Cornbread" on Fantasia Barrino’s Grammy-nominated album Back to Me. Savage is signed to SONY USA Record Label.

I started as a backup singer for many artistes. One of them is Mary J. Blige. Also I worked with Lemar. I have been on tour with artistes like George Michael and the Spice Girls. About a year and a half ago, I had a publishing deal with Sony and I have written songs for American Idols winner, Fantasia. I have written songs for Mary J. Blige and for Kat Deluna, featuring Akon.

I was the only girl in my family. I have three wonderful older brothers. Growing up was great. As a young girl, I was protected by my parents, who were very supportive and encouraged me in what I wanted to do. When I moved to England, it was a little harder because I was teased and bullied a lot. I still had a strong Nigerian accent and I didn't look like the other kids. It was tough. The other kids were tough, but they made me even tougher in the end.
