Nigerian superstar, Tiwa Savage has spoken out against a video doing the rounds where 3 OAPs were badmouthing female artistes and being recorded without their knowledge.
The footage was from City FM (they do seem to get into a lot of trouble) and the video featured three women all speaking and bad mouthing female singers of which Tiwa Savage is a part of.
She took to her Instagram to share the video and tag a number of bloggers. She expressed disappointment that the women who were supposed to be raising her up were the ones trying to tear her down.
She captioned her post: “Yooo look at the so called FEMALE gate keepers #OAP that are supposed to help fellow female artists and shout that female should support each other are seen here abusing female artists not knowing cameras were still rolling and they wonder why I keep to myself 😏. To the ladies in this video hope you keep the same energy when you see me in person #2Seconds”
The responses have largely been critical of the ladies whom many find appalling. Many celebrities also left comments with DJ Soup Model in particular saying: “Na this can’t be real? I’m disappointed on their behalf. The worst part is they’ll be the first to reach for a hug in person. All 3 o’y’all should be ashamed of yourselves. Not 1 could have the common sense to stop it? This is just tactlessness. There’s a difference between constructive criticism and pure hatred. I don’t always like all songs i play or get sent to me. That’s human. This one right here is just outright jealously”
Yemi Alade also expressed surprise and disappointment over the development saying in a social media post of her own: “It’s impossible to be liked by everyone! But in this clip we see 3 women ridiculing and making small talk about successful women, to the extent of calling someone a FOOL!, she Even took her song off the systems programmed play,I don’t even understand the English or language this lady used to insult me when she mentioned my name.
“However, I am even more perplexed as to the mental state of these women. How can people this wounded in spirit and poor in mind be able to get jobs that involve addressing millions of people, influencing their thoughts,educating listeners,promoting justice?
Nonetheless!! Women DO support women!and unfortunately, these 3 are just a few of the bad eggs.
“I cant forgive you because you haven’t offended me to be sincere ,lion no dey concern imself with wetin sheep dey talk.
“Even if i ran into them ,I wouldn’t even know who they are.if we start to listen in on the PURELY EVIL CONVERSATIONS PEOPLE have about Artists; female or male, omo data go finish.
“I know a few OAPs that know how to voice their opinion without being hateful, but these three ? Need re-orientation,re- education,, and redirection in life. This is def how they talk about all artists!all people! This is the hate they SPREAD! NAIJA WHICH WAY!
“We didn’t Rise to top because of insults ,neither can it bring us down!”
There has been no response from City Fm at the moment, but it is likely we get some action soon.
