Tiwa Savage: I feel like giving up


Nigerian pop star Tiwa Savage recently took to Instagram to share a post, which suggests she is facing a distressing period of her life.

“It is a sin to be a woman in Africa. I feel like giving up; I am tired of fighting; I am tired of proving myself; I am tired of smiling,” wrote Tiwa Savage on Instagram.

Though what triggered the musician’s statement remains unclear, her post evidently points at a person who is disturbed.

Tiwa Savage, in 2016, faced a difficult period, when her three-year marriage to former manager Teebillz crashed to a halt.

The award-winning musician accused Teebillz of taking her for granted.

Until Tiwa’s April 2016 revelations, Teebillz had accused the musician of being unfaithful.

Tiwa Savage, who, thereafter, declared her marital status as single, was spotted hooking up with Wizkid in several outings.

The two musicians went ahead to collaborate in their jams called “Malo” and “Bad”.

During Wizkid’s London performance in May 2018, he called Tiwa Savage to the stage and asked her to co-perform with him their smash hit “Malo”.

While introducing her to the revelers, Wizkid referred to Tiwa Savage as “someone special”.

Wizkid went ahead to ask the “All Over” musician, who was sporting booty shorts at the time, to continue “staying sexy for daddy”.

His remark fanned dating rumours among their fans.

But, in an August, 2018 interview with Nigeria’s Soundcity Radio, Tiwa Savage quashed the rumours, which suggested she was dating Wizkid.

The “Key to the City” hit-maker said she and Wizkid were only friends.

“We are friends, definitely,” she said, adding: “I think I have been in this industry for a long time. I have [consequently] grown a thick skin. So, comments like that, genuinely, honestly don’t bother me that much. I am kind of used to it. Today is Humblesmith, tomorrow it’s Wizkid; it is just what it is. It is part of the job.”
