Nigerian music star, Tiwa Savage, shocked everyone after revealing that she made a sex video with a partner, claiming she is being blackmailed for a ransom.
Tiwa Savage who did not reveal the identity of her partner opened up during a conversation with American radio host, Angie Martinez on Power 105.1. Although Tiwa said the video is not a sex tape, she, however, revealed that it was an intimate moment between her and her new partner.
The mother of one said, “Yesterday, I was leaving a radio station and I was in my car when my road manager forwarded me a sms.
“He said I should check my phone. I checked it and there was a video, and I was just like, ‘Wow!’
“I enquired from him where he got it from and he said he received it about 20 minutes earlier.
“The video was sent to him and it is a tape of me and the person I am dating right now.
“The first thing I did after I got off the phone was that I sent it to my manager and asked what we should do.
“The person is asking for fund now. The person I am dating is going crazy too.
“My manager asked how much the person is asking for. “
But the singer said she had decided not to pay the blackmailer because blackmailers usually come for more.
“I decided I was not going to pay the person because if I do, two months from now, three months down the line, or even two years later, you are going to come back again.
“Who knows, if I send the money, the person will probably release it. I am not going to let anyone blackmail me for doing something natural,” she added.

Another conversation that was touched was the growing Afrobeats’ movement, Martinez drew a parallel with the hip-hop genre and its early days.
Tiwa Savage spoke about watching Burna Boy at his show and her plan to attend Wizkid‘s concert in Los Angeles, Martinez again mentioned hip-hop and how the artists in the genre were not supportive of each other in its early days like Afrobeats.
Tiwa Savage agreed and opined that Afrobeats is not competitive like hip-hop.
“I also think the genre is very competitive. When you are spitting bars, you have to diss somebody. Afrobeats isn’t really like that,“ she said.
Talking about her dreams for the genre, Tiwa Savage said she wants to see Afrobeats stars win Grammy awards and perform at the Super Bowl.
