See why MTN sacked Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy & Davido as ambassadors

MTN recently announced their 2016/2017 ambassadors, which big celebs like Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Davido was not included.

The Telecoms company also revealed that they will definitely continue to maintain the strong and mutually beneficial relationship with them through the monetisation of their content on all our digital platforms - MTN Music+, CRBT and VAS.

Meanwhile past winners and participants of its Project Fame music reality TV show, Iyanya, Chidinma and Praiz were retained among others.

Though the company declined giving any reason why some were sacked while others were retained, industry watchers and Potpourri in particular believes their decision might have been influenced by scandals some artistes got themselves embroiled in the past months.

For Tiwa Savage, her getting axed may not be unconnected with the crashed marriage and infidelity involving her and ex husband, Tee Billz. Though Tiwa eventually warmed her way into the hearts of her fans by proving to be an angel in that union but it appears MTN didn’t find it amusing.

Davido was never looking like he would be a pricy item this year, not after the brouhaha with his Baby mama, Sofia Momodu, and the resultant face-off with the uncle, Ovation magazine publisher, Dele Momodu. The Dubai child trafficking allegation didn’t help matters either – At least, MTN could have thought so too

On Don Jazzy’s part, his spat with Olamide at the Headies might have been bigger than we thought. Though it was a beef started by Olamide, but Don Jazzy’s conduct after the showdown could have embarassed the Y’ello people.
