According to Okay Africa, talks of adding the Nigerian songbird to Roc Nation began shortly after Jay Z announced that his cousin, and Roc Nation director of mobile strategies, Briant ‘Bee-High’ Biggs, had moved to Nigeria in search of new talent.

And a year later, it seems Tiwa – who is currently signed to Don Jazzy’s, Marvin Records – has finalised the deal with Jay’s label.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday and heating up speculation, the singer wrote “Marvin X Roc Nation” alongside a photo of herself with Don Jazzy, and Jay Z.

This comes hot on the heels of Rita Ora’s departure from Roc Nation after settling a lawsuit filed against them last year in which she deemed their partnership as an ‘orphaned relationship.’

However, with Tiwa’s reported arrival – she would become the first Nigerian female artist to be signed under Roc Nation.
