Nigerian music star, Tiwa Savage, has revealed that she is being blackmailed with a sex tape.
The 41-year-old musician revealed this during an interview with an American Radio Personality and Singer, Angie Martinez, in New york.
Tiwa hinted that the blackmailer sent the sex video of herself and her current lover to her manager demanding money.
She said “I’m not gonna call it a sex tape. But the first thing I did was to call my Manager because this person is asking for money.
“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.”
The singer further revealed she has decided not to pay those blackmailing her for ‘doing something natural.’
“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 added.
The sex tape, which raises concerns for Tiwa, is coming at a time when she’s at the peak of her career and willing to own the narrative.
‘‘For me, it’s like why now, when the music is so good, I’ve grown. Nobody wants that of them, it’s so embarrassing, like for my fans, family, and friends,” she said.
