Tiwa also detailed why she had to move back to Nigeria to start her music career.

According to her, it would take a question from producer BabyFace for her to notice the lack of formidable women in the music scene back at home.

“Suddenly I realised there was something happening: that there were musicians like D’banj and P-Square making African music, but there were no females doing it on the same level,” she said.

In Nigeria, she honed her music and made ssure she had one main element: that she is an African woman.

“In everything I do – whether it’s using my native language, or an African beat – something is going to let you know I am an African woman”.

“Against all advice – everybody was like, nobody is going to listen to African music, I moved back to Nigeria.”

The Mavin recording artiste, stressed the need to respect women who are mothers, especially the ones who combine that role with work.

“Honestly, when I see women that are mothers, I am always always inspired, especially mothers that work and still take care of their babies because I know how hard that can be,” the mother of one said.

Savage, who just released a Killertunes produced single ‘One’ is at the “forefront of the Afrobeats explosion” according to the British Vogue in an IG post that acknowledges her reach.
