Award-winning Nigerian afrobeat singer, Tiwa Savage has been trending on social media on a negative note recently after she revealed that someone is trying to blackmail her using her intimate video.
The Afrobeats star revealed she’s being extorted by someone who obtained an intimate video of her and her partner. The singer revealed this during an interview with Angie Martinez on Power 105.1 on Thursday (October 7).
Savage said she learned the video had leaked earlier this week when her team received a copy of the video with a demand for money. She confirmed that it was an intimate tape of her and the person she’s dating right now.

We tried to stall them, but I later decided that I am going to own the narrative. I am not ashamed of it; this is someone I am dating; I am not cheating, neither is he. We are grownups. I cannot believe this is happening to me. I feel for my fans because they will have to keep defending me. I can switch off my phone or have someone run my account so I do not see that, but my fans will feel the need to protect me. I will like my fans to ignore it.
Also during the interview, Tiwa Savage opens up about the stress she’s faced in regards to the situation and how to tell her son and mother about it. Additionally, she’s refusing to cede any ground to her would-be-extorter.
However, after watching the said video, Buzzslate.com can confirm that Tiwa Savage is not the one in the video as being speculated. According to what we’ve gathered, the video is an old adult movie that has been on the internet for years.
