Tiwa Savage Speaks of Battle with Poor Eyesight

Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has opened up about the intense criticism she faced early in her career due to her fashion choices and lyrics. In a candid interview with Kiss FM, UK, Savage reflected on the challenges she encountered, describing how her “sexy” fashion style and “risky” lyrics were met with disapproval.

Savage recalled the backlash she faced from the public and media, who often scrutinized her for her bold wardrobe and provocative songs. This criticism, she explained, was a significant hurdle during her formative years in the music industry. Despite the pushback, Savage remained committed to her artistic vision and personal style.

In the interview, Savage expressed her admiration for fellow Nigerian artist Ayra Starr, noting that her experiences resonate deeply with her own journey. She shared that her appreciation for Starr goes beyond her musical talent, highlighting how Starr has managed to thrive on the global stage despite facing similar criticisms from Nigerians regarding her fashion choices.

Savage’s words reflect a sense of solidarity and encouragement for the younger generation of artists. “And she looks amazing, she’s extremely talented. Yeah, she’s a star,” Savage concluded, expressing her belief in Starr’s potential and her pride in seeing her succeed.

Tiwa Savage’s reflections offer a poignant reminder of the challenges faced by female artists in the music industry. Her support for Ayra Starr highlights the importance of empowerment and mentorship, as well as the need for the industry to embrace diversity in artistic expression.
