Why I was prevented from performing in Nigeria – Tiwa Savage

Afrobeats singer singer Tiwa Savage has revealed that she was prevented from performing at concerts because her outfits were considered “too risqué.” when she returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom to pursue her musical career.

She revealed that some of her earlier music videos were not aired due to being deemed indecent.

Tiwa disclosed this in a recent interview with BET.

Savage said, “When I first moved back, I would turn up at a show and they would say I can’t perform because my outfit was too risqué.

“It was a cultural issue. Even some of my first music videos were not played on the television because they were considered indecent. I wasn’t even wearing bikinis.

“Despite the setbacks, I was still stubborn. My dresses were getting more revealing. It was just getting worse. They were bashing me online.

“It was funny because the females were secretly falling in love with me and my style. They couldn’t deny it. My fanbase, my followers, was growing. So they had to put me on shows and play my music because there was a demand for it.”
