New York based blogger Claire Sulmers recently interviewed Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage about her music, style, her legacy and more.
During the interview, Claire read a question from an Instagram follower who asked Tiwa the question: “How are you coping after your marriage crisis”
Tiwa’s response was:
“hmmmm…where’s the PR, cut, noooo… I don’t know if I am allowed to answer that question. I did speak on Elle magazine recently in South Africa and I said I would never address anything to do with my private life again. Because I just think that its some scared and that’s one lesson that I learned.”
Tiwa also says she wants to be remembered as a global artist.
“I don’t want to be remembered as one of the biggest female artists out of Africa, I just want to be remembered as one of the biggest artists period. [I want to be known as] one of the people that was part of the revolution that happened with Afro music to the world. I also want to be remembered as a very strong woman and someone who inspired a lot of people that regardless of the challenges we go through as women, you can still achieve a lot. It’s a long road and it’s a slow race. It definitely is about pacing yourself and never ever giving up.”
