Last night, Tiwa Savage shared a video of female on-air-personalities (OAP) dissing her off the air.
In the video, three female OAP at City 105.1 FM compared 49-99 singer to fellow musician Yemi Alade, whom they claimed was a better singer than Tiwa Savage. According to the OAPs, Tiwa does not write her own song but instead ride on the coattail of other people.
Tiwa shared the clip on social media, pointing out how females bring than their own fellow females. The songstress also made it known that it was behaviour such as those that made her keep to herself.
She also added a note to the women in the video asking them to “keep the same energy when you see me in person.”
In her words:
“Yooo, look at the so-called FEMALE gatekeepers #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”

Meanwhile, many Nigerians including some celebrities have reacted to the video with most condemning the three women OAPs. Some also expressed support to Tiwa Savage.
Here is a sample of what they say:
@officialwaje: “Some women just disgrace us. Shame.”
@iamterryg: “Makes you strong.”
@nikkilaoye: “Oh my goodness… Really?? They should be ashamed of themselves… Nonsense.”
@skiibii: “That is why you are different and special.”
@aphrodija: “Habba! This is horrible now! @city1051 Habba who did this to us please… Shame shame.”
@lolaoj: “Ridiculous, same people that’ll be asking for interviews I’m sure. Such unnecessary hate smh.”
“ms_dsf: “This is disgusting smh.”
@teeymixofficial: “Really unfair to loosely wash down people’s effort and hard work. Shame on them!”
@chiefdejjy: “Wow… now they will be issuing one yeye apologies. They should all be fired! Smh.”
@instafunnycomments: “Rihanna has never written A song on her albums and yet she is celebrated. It is not a sin if an artist does not write his or her songs you, naive girls. Unfortunately for you guys, Tiwa was signed by Sony as a songwriter back in the day…Get your facts, right children.”
