      Hi 5 my dear !
      The problem is not about the sexiness of the video, we are used to it.
      The video is simply a fail !!!!
      Tiwa tries hard to be sexy, but she is not
      The dance, the bodysuit are wrong
      Only the song is correct, the rest is a faiiiiiiiiiiiiiilll !

    It’s because we attribute her to higher and classy standards. Beyonce and Rihanna are of a different cultural background and their standards are different. We are finding it hard to accept that she can be ghetto or cheap…but if she insists…you’re right, its a free world.

    Other performances by Tiwa has been OK, but this particular one..Hell no…It was bad and trashy. Its not about the video being sexy but how it came out. It didn’t come out nice.

    Yeah but it still doesn’t make it acceptable for tiwa to follow suite with a tacky sexy video… Why should her focus be on trying to make racy video so that Nigerians can hail her sexy? Just because a man puts his hand under fire and people are supporting him doesn’t make it right.. And as for people saying she can express her sexuality, well pls don’t call prostitutes ashawo because according to you they are also expressing their sexuality.. SMH… Very sad!

    May 28, 2014 at 4:31 pm

    Omg! So tired of this. No one is saying there is anything wrong with being sexy. The video lacked sexy appeal I watched it and wasn’t like omg damn girl! It was not sexy it was forced UN I’m choreographed rauchy forced. No originality we know the gun and the waggling tongue is Rihanna opening legs and hitting hips Beyonce from blow video. You can be sexy with originality.. I think she does thought it was good. The video isn’t art mr.blizz it was UN original and tacky and instead of you to complain take corrections and makemake it ten times better.

      I have to agree with you. You took the words right out of my mouth. I don’t mind sexy videos but when it is not naturally sexy, that is were the problem lies. The dance was awful, and this is not me hating. I actually like Tiwa as an artist. But lets call a spade a spade, it was very awkward to watch. When she dropped it like it was hot, I felt she was going to fall and never get up…next time, hire dancers…just saying…

    • tunmi

      May 28, 2014 at 5:48 pm

      Thank you. It was uncomfortable to watch. I liked her in kele kele and even Girlie O which she featured on was sexier than this

    • Noni

      May 31, 2014 at 12:41 am

      Exactly. The whole video was tired, desperate and unoriginal. She has a pretty body but that bodysuit didn’t flatter her and it wrinkled unpleasantly every time she moved her waist. Plus she’s not flexible so the dancing didn’t look effortless. Beyonce treads the fine line between sexy and vulgar very well. Trailing your hands on your collar bones or hips is sexy, touching your cooch is vulgar. Her hands looked nice though, I liked her nails.

  12. nonye

    May 28, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Response could be two-fold, if you were liberal and didn’t mind the “sexiness”, the criticism would simply be that Tiwa’s performance didn’t feel very authentic or organic. If you aren’t liberal then your response to Gbemi is in her tweets, Beyonce isn’t Nigerian, Tiwa is. It’s the same way you could chastise a friend for being too hard on her son when she beat him for crashing her car but almost crucifying your son when he does the same thing. People pay more attention/demand higher standards from “their own”. For some commentators, it’s not “hate”. It’s a call for a little improvement. She’s capable of it

      May 28, 2014 at 5:05 pm

      true talk! i think beyonce and tiwa suffer from the same forced sexiness with awkward facial movements. it’s awkward. rihanna seems a bit natural. but i’m not a fan of all three women. shakira’s sexiness is unforced and looks subtle and elegant. i love her.

    • CarliforniaBawlar

      May 29, 2014 at 12:27 am

      Gbam!! Nonye… Gbam!!
      I haven’t seen a Beyonce/Rihanna video or performance in over 5years. My main staple for secular music is Naija/African cos of the ingenuity. I don’t know why Tiwa would choose to go the crouch grabbing way sha…to what end?? Its a sad look IMHO.
      And Aunty Gbemi…In all your glorious thickness, thou shouldn’t always equate everything to food….

  13. nene

    May 28, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    um, Gbemi it’s called culture and values. nigerian culture has not been destroyed like american/western cultutre where sex is everything. yes, most people have sex and they probably do worse that tiwa but it is secret, it is not for public consumption. there are no other nigerian female musicians (goldie was more mellow than tiwa) pulling the “beyonce/rihanna” stunt that tiwa has been pulling since she stepped her feet in nigeria. even in america, people blast rihanna and beyonce and co for their sexualization that they call “feminism”.

    @ what fifi said, no one “hated” on Goldie for her sexiness maybe as her person or her crazy dressing, After watching Tiwa’s video i was just not impressed, i dont know what it was but it just dint appeal right to me, something was off and horrid. I dont “hate” Tiwa nor am i “hating” the video was just bleh!!

  16. Fatimah

    May 28, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    And who’s been hailing Beyonce and co? Definitely not me.

    Tiwa is such a …. because she has no idea how amazing she looks fully clad. I still remember one picture of her getting her car some years back (on LIB). She was wearing a plaid shirt and jeans. She was soo it.

    I love the Tiwa I see in the new MTN ad not this rubbish I am seeing now.

    PS: That beyonce’s pic up there is just retarded. Why would anyone want to pose/look like that?

  19. Meah

    May 28, 2014 at 4:41 pm

    I fail to understand this constant comparison with foreign acts. The fact that Beyonce, Rihanna or any other person gets hailed for nudity doesnt mean Tiwa must get the same reaction. Execution matters. Rihanna had naked scenes in both Umbrella and S&M videos but for me, one was alright and the other trashy; same person, different reactions.

    Having the same dress on as your neighbor does not guarantee same feedback. Gbemi really needs to be quiet.

    May 28, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    How to say this without being insulting….hmmm. I always thought Gbemi got it, you know…like she understands the obvious, but with these posts? Mba. Talking about have they eaten today? Have you eaten today, Gbemi? Because hunger can sometimes deprive one of rational thought.
    Growth in an artiste is important, so if Tiwa calls this her evolution as an artiste, we can start the discussion from there. But how Gbemi can have that stance (if she’s not in Tiwa’s pocket for some reason or the other) is beyond me, especially when you compare those 2 still shots with Beyonce and Tiwa. Do you see the dead fish look on Tiwa’s face? Do you see that bodysuit that is hanging on for dear life on her body? Okay then.
    If we’re gonna be half naked, let’s admire the effortless sensuality in the moves or the creativity in the outfit. All of this video is a hot damn mess. Grabbing your coochie like you’re Miley Cyrus or some attention-deprived poptart. Just let us know where you’re at, Tiwatope, so we can address you accordingly. Finally, this…this is not a diva move.


    May 28, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    @BN, you say the video has 11k views already, but i would like to add that the number of visitors/commentators on this site has probably risen as well… No publicity is bad publicity Tiwa, as long as peeps are commenting and people go and watch the video, you have made your mark. I give you till 5pm, you will be trending. #WantedbyTiwa. Omo i should put it on my site as well…

    May 28, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    Lol…is this one trying to jump on the band wagon and gain tiwa’s favor and a little bit of public attention in the process? Was this ur “article” called for? U will not write article for important pressing issues, but u will write thesis on what Nigerians think about tiwa’s video. Tiwa is a grown-ass woman who is entitled to be sexually provocative if she wants, and the audience she is gyrating for are also grown ass adults who are entitled to react the way they deem fit. Every one must not agree and adore Tiwa’s choices. People can talk because tiwa is performing for US, not for herself or else she will keep it in the bedroom….so that makes the public her critic.

    The issue at hand is not about the raciness of the video(to me it wasn’t too racy), but the sexy/seductive moves were just not jelling. I am all for finding ur craft and sticking to it instead of trying to do follow-follow because whats good for the gander may not be for the goose. The sexy faces, dances and poses she was trying to make were funnier than they were sexy. I am not one of those that have a problem with women expressing themselves sexually….but do it tastefully and do it because it comes naturally to u not because u have something to prove or because u wan do follow follow. As an artist, it is imperative that u must re-invent urself every once in a while in order to stay relevant, but carve ur own niche, instead of jumping on the same bandwagon everyyyyone and their mama are on. It doesn’t set u apart, and makes u look like the likes of maheeda, and the others that fail to leave an impression. What set Tiwa apart was the fact that she came in with her own style….something different and refreshing. Even if she want to be sexually provocative, she can do it with class and taste(starting with discarding that tacky, unflattering body suit). Tiwa can still infuse sex-appeal into her craft and stay relevant….all this maga maga, i must do and u people can’t do shit stunt is for the birds.

    All this talk of being liberal and conservative is very funny.
    I am quite liberal yet I find Tiwa, Rihanna and Beyonce tacky and distasteful in their display of so-called sexiness.
    wanton exhibition of the female anatomy in the name of art is silly,not appealing and debasing of womanhood.
    Gbemi has a right to defend it and some of us have a right to attack it.
    Trying to use africanness as a defense is slightly myopic.

    • nonye

      May 28, 2014 at 5:32 pm

      Thank you Idak.I do not find Rihanna or Beyonce appealing either. There is something trashy and cheap about forcing your ‘sexiness’ down the throats of others. There are other ways to sell an album beyond the forcing sex appeal blatantly.

  29. Fola

    May 28, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    Well, that’s because Beyonce and Rihanna live in a more civilised part of the world where women rights are recognised and are held in high esteem. Nigeria is not quite there yet. Nigerian women are still fighting to be taken seriously.. Things like this frustrates the efforts of the women that are working so hard to ensure that women are taken seriously and treated with respect in Nigeria. If tiwa wants to showcase her “talent” she should go back to America where she learnt her trade.

    • Raerae

      May 29, 2014 at 6:16 am

      Exactly ,my point. She could have made her point bu wearing tight leather pants and jacket, we still need to be decent in everything we do, its all over, this is what men see that makes them disrespect female all together” see how lil wayne and chrisbrown treat ladies. They had a song girls ate hoes, this is not helping women rights at all. Next thing now sex video and ppl will start saying haa shebi evry1 is doing it to, to each their own. Na everybody sabi sef.

      You’re wrong Raerae. How dare you blame women for being victimized by men? Is it the car owners fault that robbers want to rob him? Tiwa can hold her vajayjay if she wants, after all men pack penis all the time. Who says we need to be decent in everything? She is a pop star, not the deaconess in your primitive church.
      P.S. Since you love patriarchy, I command you (I am a man) to shut up and fast for 72 days. Report or I will cane you. :))

    Hush, Gbemi. People can see that with Rihanna and Beyonce its effortless. Tiwa’s leg-on -the-bumper ridiculousness, trying to spread legs that wouldn’t part (try yoga, darling), crazy hand gestures, crotch-touching, laying on her side dry-humping the air and that awful outfit were painful to watch and this from me who thinks she’s talented.

    May 28, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    I guess I have to clap for myself for not contributing to the 11K+ views. I haven’t seen the video yet and I have read the BN comments on the video. Okay Mide, you shall not watch the video. Still want to keep the image of the Tiwa that I like in my head. The same reason I don’t go to see the corpse in an open casket at the wake. Would like to preserve the memory of the person alive and not have to recall the dead body everytime i think of them. I like you Tiwa, I would rather be oblivious and just read the comments. Gbemi, I know you are being loyal to your friends but that “have you eaten” bit was just unnecessary.

    I’m not a Tiwa fan. Honestly I’m not. Was the video tacky?..yes. Could it have been better?…absolutely. But I still don’t think she’s deserves this backlash and the name calling. Personally, I see nothing wrong with Tiwa wanting to be a sex symbol (still needs a lot of work ‘tho), it’s her choice & just because it’s not yours doesn’t mean you’re better than her.

    I really don’t know but it feels like people are actually going out of their way to criticize her.

    I think Beyoncé is sexy, Rihanna is sexy as well but they don’t force it.If you check Beyoncé’s Partition video, her hair,makeup,props,the whole package screams SEXY. Even her Upgrade you video. This video is not just it. The outfit, the makeup, the lighting, the shoes…come on! Tiwa is so dark,if she’s going for sexy she should think white outfits,maybe a 2-piece,lots of bling,she has beautiful big eyes so highlight them,give us sultry makeup. Give us a clean look. Since she can’t do heels, just show us a full shot wearing the shoes then take it off and shoot around it. I don’t even know why people don’t do research before doing stuff. Nigerians are not known for hating, stop giving us a bad name. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. As for the have you eaten today reference, she’s just quoting M.I’s Chairman.

    Sorry my dear, but many respectable mothers and ladies do not like how Beyoncé and Rihanna are jumping around the stage displaying their bodies. It is only the young ones who like them and this is because we lack female artistes like Faith Hill and Whitney Houston ( before the drugs). I know Naija people like to over copy Western culture it is like we don’t even have the confidence in our culture we used to have many years ago.

    I personally don’t give a rat ass about who chooses to be sexy because we live in an age of ‘sex sells’ but if you decide and choose to go that route, I plead with you to ensure you nail the look. Yes we may have hailed Beyonce because there’s such an ease and class to her sexy video. What I see here is what I call ‘poor man’s bikini movement’. It’s not appealing neither is this Tiwa’s video sexy. I like the song but she failed woefully in her attempt to be sexy. Is it the make up with the supposed wet look or is it the yellow or gold shoes she wore or maybe it’s the outlandish catsuit she wore through out the video that did not do her body any justice because that girl has a beautiful body; she’s firm, she’s toned, she ‘s flexible; a body never gets better than that because not everyone will be curvy, some of us have angles like Demi Moore, Ciara, but these are ridiculously sexy women as well. So Tee Billions and Tiwa, before you get your internet goons to jump on comments, take time out to try and see that people’s reactions to this video is not as a case of hate but because yet again we have decided to copy intl super stars and yet again we have failed woefully at it. Tiwa, you are beautiful, talented and people love you and if for whatever reason you choose to go the sexy route, please understudy women like Beyonce, Kelly, Keri Hilson, Shakira, Ciara and maybe Rihanna (though I personally think Rihanna screams f*#k me as opposed to I’m sexy). Please go back to the drawing board and prove to the so called haters that you have super stardom on lock down!

    Dear Gbemi,

    Did it ever occur to you that even if we put culture aside, people are calling it too try hard because that’s what it actually is? You don’t need to be a hater to see that Tiwa lacks the shape to pull off that body suit or the way she was twisting and turning her over made up face wasn’t cute. Or her “dancing with the stars” 2 inch ball room dancing sandals had no business being worn in the video? Sometimes let’s call a spade a spade, pointing out the obvious isn’t “hate” it’s the truth.

    Our own artists have so much potential and talent why would we sit there an applaud them for trying to be a bargain basement version of artists that already exist? You’re the type of friend that would let your friend walk around with lipstick or spinach on their teeth and tell whilst assuring them they look good. Weak.

    It’s not everyday delusions of grandeur; some days tell the truth and be real

    Have a nice evening x

    gbemi shut up, you, why using tiwa’s name to trend today,you also want to be heard by saying something about issue trending, you better talk to yah friend(mama peace voice)she looks like a slot by touching and touching her crotch, i wonder if she cares about her inlaws, or if her parents don’t talk to her to calm her down with the way shes going,with all these backlash lately, tiwa billz I fear for your career o, you better think twice, thats not decent, i wonder what you would tell your ids later in life when they stumbled on these pictures we have been seeing recently with this silly racy thrash you just released, when you do something in life, you think about the effect later in life whether good or positive and remain change is a constant thing, you wont be reigning forever, no be Nigeria, its takes the grace of God for artist to survive 10 years,you better thread carefully, i used to love tiwatope because she is talented, she doesn’t need to get naked to get heard, i love her album,i am sure the likes of bankyw her hubby’s bestman ,don jazzy know better, in there mind they would just be like she messed up, but them no go wan talk am, if truly they are good friends they should tell her, because she should know her audience before giving them thrash as a video ,tiwa savage you better retrace your steps, and please invest for now, change is the only constant thing in life, money might not be coming in forever, with this video I am getting to see her as a sex tool,msheewww, thats trashy,TIWATOPE OMO YOOBA NI

    Hungry gbemi should go read articles on bN about bey and her music most especially her grammy performance and see the amount of tongue lashing she got. And pls dear Nigeriasn drop that word hater. Seriously. It just show a shallow mentality.IF tiwa has the audacity to bare her body then I too can bare my mind and it says tacky and forced. See her small proportions like my own. Lamo

    Oh dear Gbemi,shattap already.U need sleeping potion.Your comments and tweets are always unintelligent. It’s a pity BN bombards me with them periodically. Anyway,to answer your sleazy question, it’s because she obviously wants to be Nigerian Beyonce/Rihanna or “African Barbie” as she sang.Tiwa needs to just be her own person and women should just please remember that we do not have to flaunt our “sexuality” and interior design plus vagina touching skills to make it…like seriously, do the men do that to be taken seriously?Carve your lane,Tiwa baby,carve it!I love you.And as for you Gbemi,go get some advanced education… mscheew.And….“Have you my dear,eaten this week”?

    honestly , i thought tiwa tried in this video, yes, the video could have been better and theres room for growth, this just means that she should work harder at being sexy in her videos, i actually liked the song, i thought it was lovely …. but seriously guys stop with the hating and criticism, a lot of pple don’t get it right the first time,show some love and support her , and encourage her to do better…

    I love you, Gbemi and naijas hate too much. However, Tiwa is truly trying too hard. Sorry, no direction, no creativity, just not there. Shes trying to be sexy, but has no clue what the hell shes doing. Its like Alicia keys trying to be Bey, nah, just stick to what u are good at.

    The problem with Tiwa is that she has Champagne ego on Palm wine talent. Rihanna and Beyoncé are original, they are not imitators. Create your own unique brand Tiwa, you are fast becoming Nigeria’s most hated.

      May 30, 2014 at 11:31 pm

      So true. People are hating her more n more

    @professor got me rolling with laughter “Champagne ego on Palm wine talent”, that was original. @nonye i concur. Gbemi is just doing eye-service make una leave her abeg, she is not the one prancing naked on your screens.
    For national peace can we drop the word “Hater”. It’s been over-used and mis-used at the same time.The Nigerian definition of Hater: an opinion that does not agree with ones. Make una drop am!#simples!

    Those that think that Tiwa is sexy should watch her Ekwulobia performance’s pictures. The one she took with her so called fan. #pukes

    This is a patriarch society. If you are below the age of 40 and educated in Nigeria the full meaning and implication of that will be lost on you due to the appalling state of education in Nigeria. So no offence. For proponents of the culture theory, nigerian women are basically the property of men folk. Female sexuality is a no no. In fact most nigerian women have had some form of genital mutilation, which is by and large a way we use culture to control a woman’s sexuality.
    Women are blamed for the sex of their children
    Women blamed for childlessness
    Women need permission for everything
    Women do not and can not ask their husband to use condoms even if the goat is sleeping outside with girls who have somehow escaped the mutilation of their genitals and so respond to him in an new and exciting way. The goat comes home and brings you HIV for all your compliance.
    Tiwa is a new nigerian kind of woman. She’s a feminist , and owns her sexuality. She’s a prototype and breaks out of the archaic mould of female oppression . Now women you are free to offer your clits up for cutting to show your full compliance to the patriarchy influence culture. However TIWA refuses to have her clit cut or wings clipped and she isn’t queuing up to join your sexless women institute .so live and let live .however If you feel your lawless children like their lawless parents will watch this and become sexual freaks take them to the village tie them down and have their clits cut. It’s amazing how many females have been circumcised in Nigeria yet the country compared to say America were women have their clits intact, has the 2 nd highest rate of HIV in the world. What does that tell you of the Culture. It was never meant to protect women .

      Thank you. They first oppress you by taking away your rights for an education then ingrained ignorance into the mentality in form of culture. Women have a right to their bodies, they don’t need a man to validate their existence. You were born with a clitoris for a reason if you don’t want yours cut it off and also your freedom to be what you want to be. Tiwa do your ugly thing Joor . Na you get your thing you can do what you want with it. If people don’t like it they shouldn’t watch you. Abi don’t you people understand you have the RIGHT not to watch tiwa do her yeye thing. All these circumcised women have not only lost their sexuality but also their right to choose what to view. Nonsense .
