Tiwa Savage, popular Nigerian singer has revealed that she is currently being extorted by an unknown person over an apparent s*x tape between her and her partner.
The ace singer made this revelation during an interview with American OAP, Angie Martinez of Power 105.1.
“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 added that 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.”
Revealing how the s*x tape was leaked she said,
“It is not from someone working closely with me. What happened is that the person did it on Snap and he posted it by accident, but he quickly deleted it.
“However, someone got it before he could delete it. It is a very short video, but it is me. It is going to be out there and I can just imagine the memes. I just found out yesterday. I could not sleep last night.
“We tried to stall them, but I later decided that I am going to own the narrative. I am not ashamed of it; this is someone I am dating; I am not cheating, neither is he. We are grownups.
“I cannot believe this is happening to me. I feel for my fans because they will have to keep defending me.
“I can switch off my phone or have someone run my account so I do not see that, but my fans will feel the need to protect me.
“I will like my fans to ignore it.”
The singer however revealed that she will not paying the blackmailer and she might even end up releasing the tape by herself.
