Superstar singer Tiwa Savage has covered the latest edition of Guardian Life magazine.
Savage, who broke into the Nigerian market with her hit song Kele Kele, revealed her beginning as rosy.
She said: “At that time there weren’t many other female artists in a similar musical lane as me. There were a lot of restrictions and it seemed that people were not ready for a female act who was very comfortable in her own skin to be making music in Nigeria.”
She recently added Profectiv Mega Growth, a hair care products maker to her list of endorsements. She told Guardian Life: “Being chosen by MegaGrowth to become their ambassador was really exciting because their core values align perfectly with the Tiwa Savage brand. Both reflect a strong, beautiful and fearless woman which is everything I stand for so the collaboration made complete sense.”
She spoke fleetingly of her marital troubles with husband Tunji Balogun, saying they made her a stronger person.
She said: “My mother has always told me that, in this life, God only gives you what you can handle. It was a very trying time but God in His infinite mercies gave me the grace to see it through. It only made me stronger.”
