I got into music because I had crush on a guy – Tiwa Savage (Video)

Popular Afrobeat singer, Tiwa Savage, has opened up on her humble venture into her music career.

Tiwa, known for her hit songs, revealed during a recent interview with MTV Live, while promoting her upcoming movie project, “Water and Garri”. She stated that her first career choice ‘was acting, not music’.

Speaking on her profession, ‘Somebody’s son’ hit maker became a musician because she had a crush on a ‘guy’ who was often seen with artists.

It’s worth noting that Tiwa Savage makes her Nollywood debut with her new film “Water and Garri”, produced by herself.

The film, which will be premiered on Prime Video on May 10, is directed by Meji Alabi and it tells a story of Aisha (played by Savage), an ambitious fashion designer who has spent the last 10 years in the U.S. and returns to her native country following a family bereavement.

However, during her interview, she said she decided to do music because of her “crush on a guy who is always around musicians”.

Tiwa Savage claims that acting was her first love before music and that the reason she joined the music industry was to be around her crush.

In her words, “I’ve always wanted to do acting. Acting was one of my first love before music. I got into music because I had a crush on a guy and he was always around the musician so I said ‘yeah, forget acting and just go into music”.

“So this is a full circle moment for me, coming back into acting. Executive producing is like a dream for me. Acting is very difficult because you have to prepare. I had to take two months of acting classes to get into this particular role and for me it was hard to adjust back. It is fun to not be myself for a few weeks.”

She also revealed she has an upcoming album which is “more RnB than Afro”. The release date of the project was, however, not disclosed.

“I have an album coming up, it is more RnB than Afro. Well, it is mix of Afrobeats but it is definitely more RnB. I have some great collaborations on there too but I can not say them here,” she added.

Savage recently said ‘Water and Garri’, will be released on Prime Video in 240 countries. The movie title originates from the singer’s 2021 EP.
