For her music and fanbase in Nigeria, Africa and across the world, Afropop star Tiwa Savage has been named amongst the BBC 100 Most Influential Women.
The mother of one was named along side Anne Marie Imafidon, a titled mathematician in the top 100 Women category. Tiwa, whose music has traversed Nigerian borders has won several international awards but this may standout owing to the grand international acceptance and recognition she will get from being listed amongst the most influential women on earth.
The Mavin’s Act has often shown a taste for ways through her dress patterns and music at times. The sonorous singer who just released her debut EP, “Sugarcane” has been up and doing throughout the year with fresh jams, “Allover” gaining wide appraisals and massive airplays across Nigerian, African and international channels.
Tiwa has been grouped amongst other ladies in the list which is still 60 but will grow to 100 as others will join as they will be tasked to put an end to some scourge affecting the female gender in the world. The teams have been listed into four different places and they comprise:
The glass ceiling – #Teamlead
Female illiteracy – #Teamread
Street harassment – #Teamgo
Sexism in sport – #Teamplay
The talented singer will be joining one of these teams to speak against one of the biggest problems being faced by women in the world.
The musician who recently got her marriage back on track has again put Nigeria on the international map as she takes her trade to the world yet again. She has a huge fan base in Nigeria and has earned a reputation for being in the mix once quality music is served.
Tiwa Savage joins some other notable Nigerians who have been listed by international bodies as women of influence. Few years ago, Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade Ekehinde made the Times list of the most influential women in the world.
