Born Tiwatope Savage but known popularly as Tiwa Savage, this Nigerian singer, songwriter, and actress has brought joy to many music lovers in Nigeria, Africa and the world over.
If there is anything to love about the mother of one, rumoured to be in a love relationship with Starboy, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid, its how she spends her energy making good music than giving ‘haters’ any explanation.
Basking in the euphoria of hard-earned success, the 39-year-old vocalist has been active in the music industry since 1996 and gives no hint of slowing down.
Currently signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the former First Lady of Mavin Records, had also signed a management and publishing deal with Roc Nation in June 2016.
Tiwa had married Tunji “Tee Billz” Balogun in an elaborate traditional wedding on 23 November 2013, and a Dubai white wedding in 2014, however, things quickly turned sour for the couple in 2016 with everyone hoping that they’d patch things up.
There were some social media unpleasant back and forth, mind-blowing interviews and ultimately divorce, despite interventions from respected family members and friends — the union created a son, Jamil.
The songstress hasn’t allowed this to stop her and has earned herself some popular awards and recognition in her music journey. Some in the bag are the MTV Africa Music Award, The Headies Awards, Channel O Music Award, Nigeria Music Video Award, and City People Entertainment Awards among others.
She became the female ever to win the BET’S ‘Best African Act’.
Tiwa Savage has done quite a lot for herself, her country and continent when music is concerned. Recently featured on Beyonce’s ‘Lion King’ album, everything seems to be working well for the singer and we believe the best is yet to come for our favourite ‘African bad girl’.
