Tiwa Savage is Tired of Fans Pitting her against Female Artists


Musician Tiwa Savage laments how she is consistently pitted against other female artists by die-hard fans.She claimed that overzealous fans frequently pitted her against every rising female artist, stating that they were attempting to take her “throne.”

The ‘Water & Garri’ actress stated that she would go out of her way to become friends with emerging female artists since she believes music is not a competition.

Tiwa Savage spoke in a recent interview with BET. She said,

“Fans always try to pit me against other female artists. Any new female artist that comes up, they would be like, ‘Yo, she is coming to take her throne.’

“And I would go out of my way to make friends with them [new female artists] because it is not a competition. The real competition is the male artists. I was happy that Tyla, a female artist won the maiden Best African Music Performance category at the Grammys over the male nominees.”
