My Journey Is Bigger Than Music, Being An African Woman – Tiwa Savage
Former Mavin records first lady, Tiwa Savage has recounted the setbacks and challenges she faced through her career and eventually landing a lucrative deal with Universal Music Group (UMG) at age 40.
The Nigerian songstress spoke with Lip Service in an Instagram Live video and revealed that God had a way of informing her that her life journey is bigger than music and her life is just an example to other women that they can still make it after giving birth.
In her own words “It’s a testimony that one’s life is not over after marriage, having kids or being a single mom, I’m 40 and that’s really hard for a lot of people to believe that I got signed to UMG at that age. It’s just like, how is that possible. But to me, that’s just God telling me that my journey is bigger than music, it’s bigger than just being an African woman.”
“My journey is like to show other women that your life is not over yet because you are married, because you have kids, because you are a single mom, because you’re not in your 20s or in your teens. You can start your dream when God says that’s when you’re supposed to start.”
In her caption, she appealed to every woman on her time line to make a promise never to quit trying till they reach the heights they want to, asking them to type I am Celia in the comment section if they would make the promise.
“Please I beg all the beautiful women, ladies and girls on my timeline to make a promise today to never stop trying, type I am Celia in the comment section if you know you gonna make it”, she wrote. Recall that Tiwa Savage recently released her much-anticipated third album dubbed ‘ Celia.’
