Tiwa Savage, award-winning Nigerian musician has recounted how she used to be stopped from performing at concerts when she returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom because of her dressing pattern.

According to Savage, some of her earlier music videos were not played on television because they were considered indecent.

She disclosed this during a recent interview with BET.

Savage said, “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 the setbacks, 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.”
