Mavin’s first lady and singer, Tiwa Savage tell her story of how she got stoned with pure water bags. Tiwa revealed at a recent engagement at the Youth Enterprise Conference 2016 how she was once embarrassed on stage at her first major performance upon her return to the country as an aspiring R&B nigerian artiste.
“My first performance at Kennis Easter Fiesta was a disaster! I was stoned with pure water bags because I was singing English songs and blowing too much phonetics.”
Tiwa also said that the embarassing experience inspired her breakthrough single – ‘Kele kele love’.
She said, “I ran back to my husband who was my boyfriend at that time and cried ‘my people are not accepting me, I don’t know what to do.’ He told me to start singing songs that they could relate with. And that was how I came up with ‘Kele kele love’.”
