Nigerian Singer and songwriter Tiwa Savage have revealed that someone is in possession of a raunchy tape she made with her current boyfriend.
Tiwa revealed this to American radio host, Angie Martinez during an interview on Friday morning.
Apparently, an unkown blackmailer sent the video to someone in her team and demanded that she pay up or the tape will be leaked for the whole world to enjoy honey.
She, however, did not disclose the identity of her partner.
She said she spoke to her manager but when she woke up today she declared enough is enough and she had an announcement to make.
She says she will not pay a dime as she has no guarantee that this person will not keep on collecting money from her. She went on to say she wont be blackmailed for doing something that is natural.
She said, “Yesterday, I was leaving a radio station and I was in my car when my road manager sent me a message.
“She said I should check my phone. I checked it and there was a video, and I was just like, ‘Wow!’
“I asked him where he got it from and he said he received it about 20 minutes earlier.
“The video was sent to him and it is a tape of me and the person I am dating right now.
“The first thing I did after I got off the phone was that I sent it to my manager and asked what we should do.
“The person is asking for money now. The person I am dating is going crazy too.
“My manager asked how much the person is asking for. “
But the singer said she had decided not to pay the blackmailer because blackmailers usually come for more.
“I decided I was not going to pay the person because if I do, two months from now, three months down the line, or even two years later, you are going to come back again.
“Who knows, if I send the money, the person will probably release it. I am not going to let anyone blackmail me for doing something natural,” she said.
Speaking in an interview with American OAP, Angie Martinez of Power 105.1, Tiwa said, “It is not from someone working closely with me. What happened is that the person did it on Snap and he posted it by accident, but he quickly deleted it. However, someone got it before he could delete it. It is a very short video, but it is me. It is going to be out there and I can just imagine the memes. I just found out yesterday. I could not sleep last night. We tried to stall them, but I later decided that I am going to own the narrative. I am not ashamed of it; this is someone I am dating; I am not cheating, neither is he. We are grownups. I cannot believe this is happening to me. I feel for my fans because they will have to keep defending me. I can switch off my phone or have someone run my account so I do not see that, but my fans will feel the need to protect me. I will like my fans to ignore it.”
