Popular singer, Tiwatope Savage, better known as Tiwa Savage, who is now under Universal Music Group, disclosed in an interview with Allure Magazine, how she attempted to bleach her skin when she was younger.
Tiwa Savage, graced the cover page of this month’s edition of the Allure magazine, where she stunned amicably.
Allure Magazine, is an American women’s magazine focused on beauty, which has a monthly publication, handled by Condé Nast in New York City.
The singer and mother, took to social media to express gratitude over her appearance on the cover page of Allure Magazine.
She shared the pictures of herself published by the magazine on her Twitter and Instagram pages.
Tiwa Savage’s interview with Allure Magazine, got the star to open up on the difficulties and challenges she faced as a black teenager, growing up among white kids in a foreign land.
She stated that it was indeed a struggle to fit in with her white friends.
Tiwa Savage went on to disclose how she combined creams with lemon in an attempt to bleach her skin. However while cleaning up her room, her mother discovered the mixture and was really disappointed in her. She was fourteen (14) years old at this time.
According to the Afro-beats singer, she still has patches on her back as a result of her earlier attempt to bleach and change her skin colour.
The ex-wife of Tee Billz, her former manager, noted that when she started her career, she wasn’t embracing who she was fully yet because she was just trying to crack into the market, but now, she has a huge platform and she is digging more into her responsibility for younger people.
Tiwa Savage noted that her first two singles were very American and wasn’t very African, but then, as time went on, she just started seeing how powerful her platform was and how mothers would say, “My little girl really looks up to you”.
Her marriage to Tee Billz, was blessed with a son, Jamie, before it ended some years back and the singer is yet to openly acknowledge another romantic relationship with anyone else. Tiwa was previously signed under Mavin Records, but since May 2019, the Afrobeat singer, bagged an international deal with Universal Music Group,
