I know a lot of you will not even attempt to read this article from the beginning to the end before rushing down to the comment section to abuse my family.
While it’s acceptable to do so, I’ll also appreciate it if you can take out a few minutes to read it from A-Z.
Some of us cannot remember the first time we came across the slender looking Ms Savage but a few people have followed her progress right from Berklee College of Music till date.
Here’s a bit about Tiwa Savage…
Tiwa Savage was born and bred in Lagos, Nigeria. She is a Singer/Songwriter singed to SONY USA Record Label. She graduated from the renowned Berklee College of Music in 2007.
Tiwa began her music in the UK touring as a background singer for artists such as Mary J Blige, STING, George Michael, Kelly Clarkson and Spice Girls. She participated in the X-Factor – the British competition that spawned American Idol and made it to the top 24. She has worked with artists such as Fantasia, AKON, Snoop Dogg and Babyface and shared the stage with the likes of Beyonce, Black eyed Peas and 50 Cent.
While the above may mean nothing to some of us, it clearly presents a lady who has rubbed shoulders with high flyers in the music industry (Something other music labels in Nigeria are paying so much for) but has decided to move back home to do music.
I’ve come across different arguments with people and on twitter where tweeps are trying so hard to dictate how they want Tiwa Savage to look on stage, red carpet or in her videos knowing fully well there’s no way she can please every single one of us (at least I’m happy).
I’ve also observed others who are trying so hard to start an argument on who’s a better singer amongst Tiwa Savage, Waje and Omawunmi. To this I ask, are we not supposed to be thankful that we’ve been blessed with the 3 of them? Why can’t we just sit back and enjoy their craft.
Yesterday I saw a tweet that said, “I’m not a huge fan of Tiwa Savage’s personality but I love her music” and I thought, isn’t Tiwa Savage an artist or a nominee for Silverbird Person of the year.
Now back to the topic of the article, I’ve observed Tiwa Savage within the short period she has spent in the Nigerian Music Industry and I’ve concluded that she’s not a star
Tiwa Savage is hardworking. There was hardly any communication poster of a big event in the past 6 months that does not have Tiwa Savage on the bill.
Tiwa Savage is humble: She’s been there, done that, gotten the T-shirt & mug yet you don’t see her rubbing it in all faces
Tiwa Savage’s album will sell out: In a country where people sell an album with just one banging single, what do you expect of an album with 3 banging singles?
In my opinion, Tiwa Savage is not a STAR, She’s a SUPER STAR
