TIWA SAVAGE DEFENDS WHY ENTERTAINERS CANNOT STOP BEING SEXUAL
African celebrities have largely been criticized for copying to much of the western side through their sexually provocative ways albeit in music videos, lyrics and how they dress, resulting in many music videos being banned from playing in the airwaves.
Multi award winning Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage while making a guest appearance on the Entertainment show hosted by Arise Television addressed the issue by saying the desire for glamour and fame makes it impossible for Entertainers to stop being sexual.
The singer shed more light on the subject including her own experiences by saying,
“There is no way a movie and entertainment will not have sexual scenes. You cannot stop an artiste from being sexual in entertainment
“The only thing we can do as Africans is to provide guidelines.
“When I performed initially in Nigeria, they screamed that it was too much; that it was too sexual. We are still fighting the same battle the Fela girls fought.
“Fela’s girls were misunderstood. What they did on stage was just entertainment.
“What they do on stage doesn’t mean that they are loose off stage. People say Fela is godfather but people forget the women that added glamour to Fela’s show.”
