 I Was Prevented From Performing In Nigeria Due To Indecent Dressing – Tiwa Savage

 

Popular singer Tiwa Savage recalled that when she returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom to pursue her musical career, she was prevented from performing at concerts because her outfits were considered “too risqué.”

She revealed that some of her earlier music videos were not aired due to being deemed indecent.

The ‘Koroba’ hitmaker disclosed this in a recent interview with BET.

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 it. 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.”

Tiwa Salvage recently revealed the inspiration behind her newly unveiled movie, “Water and Garri’

Salvage said she got the movie idea while she was drunk.

She stated this during the pre-launch press conference at Livespot Entertainment.

The award-winning Afrobeat superstar Tiwa Savage said, “I said this before, this is an idea I had in my head when I was drunk in my room and when I brought the idea to my amazing team, they didn’t make me feel stupid. They just said this is a brilliant idea.”
