“I failed at a lot of things actually, I was bullied at school severely when I moved to the UK, I ran away from home a few times, I was suspended a few times from school,” she said.
“I also failed Principles of Finance at this very university when I was graduating.”
The singer also spoke about how she was “ridiculed a couple of times” across the globe.
“I’ve been globally ridiculed a couple of times, I’m not going to say what it is but it rhymes with ‘cape’, the irony,” she added.
Tiwa said despite all the struggles, she succeeded in becoming a “leading figure” in Afrobeats and has been recognised internationally.
“But this same girl went on to become a leading figure in the global phenomenon called Afrobeats. And some call me queen but it’s Doctor Savage from now on,” she added.
“The same girl also graduated with two degrees, I became the first female African woman to win the MTV EMA awards, I’ve covered many international magazines including billboards. I also became the first female artiste to be endorsed by Pepsi.”
