Tiwa Savage reveals nervousness almost ruined her performance at King Charles III’s coronation

One of the many artists placing Afrobeats on the world map, superstar singer and queen of Afrobeats, Tiwatope Savage-Balogun, professionally known as Tiwa Savage, has revealed that she was nervous during her performance at the historical coronation of the British monarch, King Charles III, which almost ruined the moment for her.

Tiwa Savage gained world dominance as the Queen of Afrobeats, having been the only Nigerian artiste invited to perform at the coronation concert of King Charles III and Queen Camilla at Windsor Castle in England, which of course, was another big win for the talented superstar.

This was the first time a Nigerian artist performed at a royal coronation in England, providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Tiwa Savage.

The event was attended by over 20,000 people and was widely covered by the BBC, with over 18 million people globally tuning in to watch the concert.

Appearing recently on the Good Morning Britain TV Show, Tiwa Savage admitted that she was nervous in the first few seconds of her performance at Windsor Castle.

She said, “It was beautiful [to perform for the King]. It was such an amazing moment to represent the Commonwealth and to be on that stage.

“I was nervous, I will say the first few seconds. But as soon as I started singing, I said, ‘I have to just get swept away by the crowd’.”

The ‘Queen of afrobeats’, as she is fondly called, also described the British Queen Consort, Camilla, as “very lovely” during the show.

Tiwa Savage and the Queen Consort met before her historic performance at the coronation ceremony.
