Why I was prevented from performing in Nigeria – Tiwa recounts

Must read

Nigerian singing star, Tiwa Savage has recounted how she was prevented from performing at Nigeria’s concerts when she returned to the country from the United Kingdom to pursue her musical career.

In recent interview with BET, Tiwa disclosed that she was prevented from performing because her outfit was “too risqué.”

She revealed that some of her earlier music videos were not aired because they were considered indecent.

Savage said, “When I first moved back, I would turn up at a show and they would say I can’t perform because my outfit was too risqué.

“It was a cultural issue. Even some of my first music videos were not played on the television because they were considered indecent. I wasn’t even wearing bikinis. Despite the setbacks, I was still stubborn. My dresses were getting more revealing. It was just getting worse. They were bashing me online.

“It was funny because the females were secretly falling in love with me and my style. They couldn’t deny. My fanbase, my followers, was growing. So they had to put me on shows and play my music because there was a demand for it.”
