The singer also spoke about how she was “ridiculed a couple of times” across the globe.

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.
