Tiwa Savage finally breaks silence after being dragged under the heat in the microblogging platform, Twitter, following allegations of neglecting rising female singers, Ayra Starr and Tems in the music industry.
A Twitter user, @ManLikeIcey opined that since Tiwa Savage is one of the top female musicians in Nigeria, she should do well to show her support to Tems and Ayra Starr, like Wizkid and Davido gave to other talented singers.
He wrote;”Tiwa Savage has never acknowledged Ayra Starr and Tems for their current wave, she steadily talks about “Women support Women”. Wizkid and Davido have acknowledged Rema and Fireboy series of times by the way”.
While the allegations were making the waves, Tiwa Savage never released a statement until Tems bagged her first Grammy nominations for the 2022 Grammy Awards. Tems got two nominations in the “Best Global Music Album” category, with Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos Deluxe” and the “Best Global Music Performance” category, with Wizkid’s ‘Essence’.
In an Instagram post, Tiwa Savage congratulated Tems and Angelique Kidjo, a Benniese-American music icon, on their Grammy nomination.
“It’s a big win, but I’m especially proud of myself.” I’m really looking forward to seeing my Queens ooo. Angelique Kidjo and Tems Baby,” she wrote.
Excitingly as well, Nigerian songstress Yemi Alade also bagged her first Grammy nominations, getting two nods in the “Best Global Music Album” category with Angelique Kidjo’s ‘Mother Nature’ and another in the “Best Latin Rock Album” category with Bomba Estero’s ‘Deja’.
Joeboy, also got a nod in the “Best Dance and Electronic Album” category with Major Lazer’s ‘Music is the Weapon Reloaded” album. Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s grandson, Made Kuti, also got a nod in the “Best Global Music Album” category, courtesy of a double album with his father, Femi Kuti, titled ‘Legacy +’.
