Is Tiwa Savage’s Huge Shadow Gradually Pushing Di’ja Out Of The Music Business?
Tiwa Savage is enjoying all the accolades she deserves what with the number of hits the Roc Nation star keeps dropping back to back.
The ‘All Over’ singer is taking the mavin records brand all over the globe a feat even D’banj couldn’t manage with the old Mo’hits. While her current steady progress to a world star has boosted her Nigerian label brand it has thrown a huge block along the part of her labelmate, Dija who has so far been struggling to keep up with the only other lady in the Supreme Mavin Dynasty.
Dija came into the limelight when Don Jazzy unveiled his heroic trio and announced Mavins records plan for the future with the energetic Reekado Banks and vocal genius, Korede Bello. The first two have gone on to stamp their name in the Nigerian music industry, and have even started shooting for an international fan base, Dija, however is yet to find footing in the Nigeria music industry which has no room for a female act that can’t stay in vogue.
Known for its treacherous ways of pushing top female musicians to the curb, the music sector which is the biggest in Africa has no time for artistes who can’t keep up with the competition, and Dija can’t even keep up with the one in her label.
Don Jazzy and the mavin crew haven’t helped the mother of one in anyway either with all the attention showered on Tiwa Savage constantly leaving Dija in the shadows.
Also a mother of one, Dija might find herself out of the music business soon if she doesn’t make moves to be the centre of attention in the label or move to another label where she can standout as the first lady.
Ever since she joined Mavin records, her mates, Reekado Banks and Korede Bello has dropped their albums and even Tiwa added another mixtape to her Red album, but fans are still yet to hear any serious music project yet from Dija. Instead Mavin went on to sign 4 more artistes.
As if resigned to her fate, Dija has taken to one of her old hobbies in art and has gone back to painting but even in that she still owes her Inspiration to Tiwa.
One only wonder what it will take to make Dija break from such a huge shadow, else she ends up in the same clique as Mo’cheddah and Chidinma, who have both moved on to their new fashion and acting career respectively.
