No BS: Tiwa Savage is NOT a STAR

share on:

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.

[audio:|titles=Love me, Love me, Love me]

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

  1. Tiwa Savage is an artiste I love and respect so much.Her international music experience is reflected in her hit songs and meteoric rise to the top.The only snag is that her videos lacks the quality expected of such club bangers like ‘Kele Kele love’ and ‘Love me 3x’.I hope she correct this drawback with a great video for ‘Without my heart’.It deserves a quality finish.

  2. Her songs are nice no doubt…. Her voice sonorous but for someone who has mingled with the high n mighty, she sure doesn’t know how to dress sometimes…. All that nudity? By the way, why does she always have to wear those leather abi wateva leggins that is? Na wa oooo.

  3. I won’t call myself a fan of Tiwa’s, but I really enjoy her music and all. That being said, people need to chill with the way they crucify her all the time. She’s got a great voice, why compare her to others who have equally great voices. We can’t all be the same. And all those people who ‘style’ her with their mouths…”how could she have worn that its to short/long/tight…. please.
    Also those people who keep talking about her being scantily dressed and it not being appropriate for her age (30 I think) but slobber and scream over Beyonce (her age-mate) no matter which outfit she steps out in. Stone-age minded people will start saying but Beyonce’s not African blah, blah, blah.
    Y’all need to chill. I’m sure there are better things to do with one’s life than constantly heckle others.

    P.S: I am however impartial to anyone heckling Nonhle Thema. 😀

  4. Are u guyz kidding me? What nudity? But we love rihanna, beyonce, lady gaga n co? Don’t give me d fuck abt them been whites don’t u have things u emulate from whites? Aka the phonetics of our radio presenters! So we only choose what morals to uphold? Yeah rightr! Tiwa’s great simple!!! She’s sexy and u know it y’all r just jealous. Stop hating! Nudity my ass! On twitter a girl with boob-avatar or what ever form of nudity gets followers pls take a sit. TIWA is definately a superstar!!!

  5. 2face is naija best male artist of all time….Tiwa savage Ȋ̝̊̅§ goin to be naija best female artist of all time…2face+tiwa savage=naija music savoiur….full stop

  6. Just 3 singles & she’s termed a SUPERSTAR? I need to check my dictionary again just to be sure the definition hasn’t changed.

  7. This must be the worst article i have read from you.
    How do you keep a straight face after this much ass licking?
    Superstar? How many albums?
    The way words are bandied around in the entertainment industry is nauseating.
    Folks like you need to tone it down a bit.
    The girl is good, nothing spectacular and she still has a very long way to go before you start all that superstar shit.
    Noble, for this piece, you need to hide your head in shame.

  8. I love me some Ms Savage and i have all her songs on my iPod. ‘Ife wa gbona’ is my favorite and i cannot go a day without listening to it. She has the attitude, looks and voice of a superstar and she definitely is going to go far. The fact that she went to Berklee (which is in my hood) makes me like her more.

    … but really, what is the point of this post? that people are talking about her and criticizing her?She is a celebrity and when people stop talking about her, then you should worry. Please fire the intern who wrote this ish. What a redundant article.

  9. Nobs kiss my big ass!!! She is a star no doubting that, but super without an album… Nicca wake up you should have called her a legend since you love her so much!!!!

  10. LOLOLOL sorry, but since when were Beyonce and Rihanna referred to as ‘whites’???????? *sigh* i just cant with some people here!!!! But yeah, this article or whatever you wanna call is definitely what you call ass-kissing but ass-kissing deserved. She’s a good singer of course, entertainment wise, not the best, just something not write bout her over-thrusting her pelvis on the tv screen. Take it easy love…..

  11. what do you mean by ass kissing, was not really a fan of tiwa till i saw a video of her singing for 9ice and i came to appreciate her works.@ d moment her song with flavour remains one of my best.this article was well written and i really appreciate the writter.TIWA YOU ROCK

  12. The more people hate, the more the girl is moving and rising higher and higher. She has the talent, experience with people who are worldwide A-listers, she has the professional knowledge from her studies, awesome voice. What else does it take to be a superstar? I will not say she is there yet but she sure will be there sooner than you all imagine 🙂
