Tiwa Savage talks Taking over the Music Industry, Inspirations & Positivity in New Interview

Published

on

In a male-dominated industry, Tiwa Savage is paving the way for artists to be referred to as artists not based on their genders but on impact.

Tiwa talks to Guardian Life Magazine about her goal as an artist, why she decided to move back home and who inspired her.

Read excerpts from the interview below:

On moving back home and setting the pace: At that time there weren’t many other female artists in a similar musical lane as me. There were a lot of restrictions and it seemed that people were not ready for a female act who was very comfortable in her own skin to be making music in Nigeria.

On her ultimate goal as an artist: Ultimately my goal as an artist is to show young women, particularly young African women, that with hard work and belief in yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve. I want to leave a legacy that proves that. I want young women to proudly say “If Tiwa could achieve that, so can I.

On women she’s inspired to be like: There are so many queens doing amazing things in the world right now…They (Oprah, Ava Duvernay, Shonda Rhimes) have shattered the glass ceiling for black women in film and TV…She (Bozoma ‘Boz’ Saint ) was one of the top executives at Apple Music and was recently made the Chief Brand Officer at Uber in the U.S.

She is one of the perfect examples of strong women who show that hard work pays, and the fact that she is an African-born woman is even more inspiring to me. She’s a respected boss, a businesswoman and manages to look fabulous whilst juggling it all.

On how she has remained positive throughout her career: My mother has always told me that, in this life, God only gives you what you can handle. It was a very trying time but God in His infinite mercies gave me the grace to see it through. It only made me stronger.

Popular Nigerian singer, Davido has condemned those behind the widespread looting and vandalization of public and private properties in the country.

The singer, in a string of tweets, expressed his disapproval over the act, as he stated that it needs to stop because it is unreasonable.

Taking to his Twitter page on Sunday, he wrote;

“It is painful that what started as a peaceful protest has been hijacked and turned into complete Anarchy, in total disrespect to those that lost their lives during the Peaceful protest. This is def not the way to honour those that lost their lives while protesting peacefully,”

“What is there to gain from burning and looting private businesses that provide employment to our own people?? Or burgling or burning houses belong to innocent citizens?! Or burning Buses that our own people depend on for transport to go to work and go about their lives???”

“Why burn police stations, when one of our demands was better police welfare and training??? Please stop stop stop stop! It all makes no sense whatsoever !! If you know anybody partaking in this, tell them to stop!!”
