Popular singer Tiwa Savage revealed that when she returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom to pursue her musical career, she faced significant challenges due to her outfits being considered “too risqué.” She mentioned that some of her early music videos were also not aired for similar reasons.

In a recent interview with BET, the ‘Koroba’ hitmaker shared, “When I first moved back, I would turn up at a show and they would say I can’t perform because my outfit was too risqué. It was a cultural issue. Even some of my first music videos were not played on the television because they were considered indecent. I wasn’t even wearing bikinis.”

Despite these setbacks, Savage remained undeterred. “I was still stubborn. My dresses were getting more revealing. It was just getting worse. They were bashing me online. It was funny because the females were secretly falling in love with me and my style. They couldn’t deny it. My fanbase, my followers, was growing. So they had to put me on shows and play my music because there was a demand for it.”
