Nigerian artiste Tiwa Savage has revealed that she was not into boys when she was younger, adding that her personality and strong woman attributes gave her husband confidence in her morality.
The sassy singer also revealed that she only hugged men from the side.
During a recent media interview, the 35-year-old divulged that she was driven to abstaining from sex after her heart was broken into pieces by an ex-boyfriend whom she loved to bits.
“I had gone through a tough time trying to find myself. I went through heartbreak and I remember crying so much through that time. I felt lost and didn’t know where I needed to be in this world. I know this sounds cliché, but I was praying one day and I literally felt the presence of God in the room with me” Tiwa Savage said.
“And, you know when you first give your life to Christ, you are a radical. So, then, I would preach to strangers on the train and say Jesus sent me to you.”
“And for three years, I was not intimate with a man. I didn’t kiss or have sex. Every time I hugged a man it would be from the side. A lot of people can relate to that because it has happened to a lot of us, but the key is to be consistent,” she added.
The First Lady of Mavin Records also intimated that she is very spiritual and has a close relationship with God.
“I may not always get to kneel down and pray but at some point in the car or wherever I am, I would have a conversation with God; I am very spiritual. I do not joke with paying tithe or speaking with God. I owe everything to him and I guess a lot of people don’t see that side.” said Tiwa Savage.
Tiwa the tomboy
Some might find it hard to believe or even imagine Tiwa Savage was once a tomboy.
She wasn’t into high heels, boys and waxing her eyebrows. This made her mother at one point to think she was gay.
“I was never into boys, which is probably why my husband has full confidence that the big men flashing money in my face won’t faze me,” said the Wanted singer.
Tiwa Savage is married to her manager Tee Billz and they have a son together.
