In a recent interview with BET Talks, Tiwa Savage reflected on her journey from music to film, including her debut feature film ‘Water & Garri’, which she both acted in and produced

She also opened up about the discrimination she faced in the early days of her music career in Nigeria, where her sensual style and clothing led to ridicule, banned songs on terrestrial radio, and even performance restrictions.

Tiwa Savage shared that she was often prevented from performing on stage due to her choice of outfit, a experience that many female artists can relate to.

“They get overlooked, and they can’t even do soundchecks,” she noted, highlighting the discriminatory practices she faced.

Despite these challenges, Tiwa Savage refused to compromise her style and instead doubled down on her profile as a sex symbol.

“I’m very stubborn, so I thought, ‘My dress is just going to get shorter, and my shirt is going to get more revealing’,” she declared.

Through her determination and unapologetic attitude, Tiwa Savage overcame these obstacles to become a music sensation, paving the way for other female artists to accept their individuality and express themselves freely.
