“Averagely I Have About Two Shows A Week” | Afro Pop Star Tiwa Savage Talks Success, Competing with the Men & More on Channels TV’s “Rubbin’ Minds”



Tiwa Savage

On this week’s episode of “Rubbin’ Minds”, Adebola Williams stands in for Ebuka Obi-Uchendu as the “Eminado” star, Tiwa Savage comes in for a chat and to promote her debut album, “Once Upon A Time”

During the intense interview, they talk about Tiwa‘s ‘quick’ success over the past two years on the Nigerian music scene and the stellar songstress talks about how her ONLY competition in the industry is the likes of Wizkid, 2Face Idibia and D’Banj. She also talks about how hard she works as she rehearses regularly and averages about two paid performances every week.

    She’s crazy if she thinks she doesnt have female competition coming her way.
    Pride comes before…

      @justsaying ,I think you are the one crazy, it’s not pride it is called believing in God,knowing your worth and hard-work .if others can beat that then they should step up.

      I don’t think she was saying she doesn’t have female competition. She was just being wise and saying if she needs to compete with anyone it would be the “top dogs” in the industry. Unfortunately, as she implied, the top dogs are all male.
