Tiwa Savage is currently very popular in Nigeria. Read this article to know more about her private life and career plans!
Tiwa Savage is one the greatest modern Nigerian singers. Besides her musical careers she is also a songwriter, actress, performer and loving wife.
Recently she shared with some of her secrets and life facts with wide society in a new show called the “E! VIP series” – a documentary about some of best entertainers of African region.
While growing up, Tiwa’s mother thought Tiwa might be lesbian due to her tom-boy nature
Her parents strongly stood their ground against Tiwa’s decision of the career of a musician as a young child.
Tiwa says that since she was a little girl, she was sure that she wanted to be an entertainer, but African parents didn’t understand her passion. She could only choose one: Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer or one of these. Music was not even an option, so she had to go to school to study business and accounts.
She had to get a job to kick-start her musical career
After the graduation from university, Tiwa needed some money to launch her musical career, so she was forced to get a day job as a trainee accountant – a job she quit as she fell into a depressive state after getting ‘tired of counting other people’s money’ and wanting to make hers.
TeeBillz, her ex-manager, helped to give her image a face-lift and build the Tiwa Savage brand
When she moved to America, she went to study music at the Berkley College of music.
“Then I moved to L.A. There are a lot of beautiful people there. Their skin is glowing, their teeth are perfect, their hair is amazing and I’m looking around for someone who doesn’t wax”
Then she met TeeBillz which became her manager and molded her into the Tiwa Savage brand we know today.

So everyone watching are like ‘Wait where you guys just arguing so it’s real but there are cute moments and real moments,” She told.

Her motherhood has had an impact on her brand
