When issues rise in Africa, whether centered within or outside the continent, people talk to us. One that sparked millions of people opening their mouths at any given opportunity is the recent story of Africa’s award-winning and globally known Afrobeat singer signed to Universal Music Group, Tiwa Savage.
A “sex tape” of “her” and “boyfriend” having fun was accidentally leaked by the boyfriend himself for a split second on Snapchat which was quickly fetched by a stalker, she said during a live interview with Angie Martinez of Power 105.1, New York.
According to the 41-year-old star still shining, she narrated that the stalker has been on her neck demanding money for a while now. But she chose not to give in “for doing something that is natural”. Tiwa Savage also didn’t accept the usage of the term “sex tape”.
“I am not going to call it a sex tape but it’s a tape between me and the person I am dating right now,” she told radio host Angie Martinez.
FAN REACTION TO TIWA SAVAGE’S “SEX TAPE”
Fans across the world have shown her big support for owning up. But others seemed to think it was a crazy promotion strategy to turn all the spotlights to the African queen for more attention and to drive sales for her music project with Universal Music Group.
Speaking to Raquel Omowunwi who claims to be the music artist’s “number one fan”, we were a bit more curious wanting to hear more from Tiwa’s fans if they alsothink the so called “sex tape” could have been doctored or intentionally made for a public stunt.
Omowunwi believes that only Tiwa Savage holds the truth. If she comes out tomorrow and says it was doctored, the world still has to believe her.
Tiwa Savage was married to artist manager, Tunji “Teebillz” Balogun but now a single mother with a 6-year-old son.
“I am going to talk to him and for me it is even later on when he’s about 15 and someone is trying to be rude to him… I just have to brace him up,” she spoke about the impact of the video on her son.
