A blackmailer who has been on the trail of “Africa’s bad girl,” Tiwa Savage, has succeeded in making good his threat by releasing the singer’s sex tape.
Recall that Tiwa had in an interview with American On Air Personality, Angie Martinez of Power 105.1, a little over a week ago revealed that she was being blackmailed over a sex video that featured her and her current lover.
Speaking about the situation, Tiwa revealed that her lover, who mistakenly uploaded the video on Snapchat before deleting almost immediately, is upset with the development.
Tiwa initially thought of succumbing to the blackmailer’s threat of paying but later decided to call the blackmailer’s bluff and push out her own narrative, after all, that what she did in the said video is something natural.
Besides, she reasoned that if she succumbed to the blackmailer’s threat, he will never back down.
Tiwa even added that if push comes to shove, she just might release the video herself as she is “that crazy.”
However, most Nigerians didn’t believe she could be naive enough to make a sex video let alone be blackmailed for it.
Many concluded it was a publicity stunt to swing sympathy in her favour and help boost the sales of her recently released Extended Play, EP, “Water and Garri,” which is struggling to make the desired impact.
To the shock of many, the video has finally made its way to the public domain. Exactly 11 seconds long, it features two people in the act, but only Tiwa’s face is captured on camera.
Apparently, she was on a cruise boat with her significant other and a few friends and at some point, it occurred.
To say that Tiwa is quite upset over the leak would be stating the obvious. In a post she made on her insta story and addressed to those whom she said wished to destroy and shame her.
Tiwa said, “You hated how I was able to control the narrative and get ahead of the story before it consumed me, and I am able to joke on stage about something you thought will destroy me and make me feel ashamed,”.
There are, however, insinuations that Tiwa’s lover, Abolo Beckham, a Nigerian based in Ghana, with whom she made the video, leaked it and not the blackmailer.
They hinge this on the fact that it was only Tiwa whom he clearly captured as he was the one recording, while he conveniently didn’t capture his own face.
They also wonder why he uploaded it on Snapchat in the first place “mistakenly” and deleted it within seconds.
Not a few concluded that Tiwa was better off without such a man, who clearly doesn’t have her interest at heart.
