Nigerian music star Tiwa Savage has been announced as one of the artists that will perform at the 8th annual EssenceBlack Women in Music”—an official GRAMMY Week event – this February.

    Please TIWA, don’t lip sync, do some voice training, I know you have a great voice , but it takes practice to dance and sing without sounding pitchy, don’t go bare foot, do us proud , above all use this opportunity to shine.

      Barefoot aside, not everyone can do African dance in heels for a long period of time. Her vocals needs to be on point. Her fashion, less and natural looking makeup. Don’t try too hard. Stop all that Beyonce of Africa. You are Tiwa savage, don’t get too ahead of yourself now.

    Do NOT, I REPEAT, do NOT let Remi Fagbohun style you (if you think I’m hating, check out her looks at the VMAs 2016 and the NEA Awards 2014 and I think the BET Awards in 2014. Remi styled her). Better yet, don’t take your stylist with you. Find a stylist over there. In fact, fire your make up artist before you go. I don’t think your soul and JJB’s soul meets because she does amazing makeup for everyone but you. Also, please Tiwa mi, abeg oo, biko, ejor, REHEARSE OO! Please, you cannot go and scream over there like you do here. Oyibo people don’t tolerate isht.
    Oh, and keep Don J as faaaaar away from the stage as possible.

    Awwww loving all the comments Rooting for her and giving honest tips.
    Tiwa if possible try different outfits and let us help you decide. Also, If they make you up that day and it is ish, wash it off and put lip gloss only. You have good facial features and little or no make up is ok for you.

    Congrats. All these so called advices above are capable of making her nervous and panic. Tiwa ,be yourself and dont change your music or style for them. You are the variety they are looking for. They are aware of your music style before they invited you. Best of luck.
