First lady of Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records, Tiwa Savage was a guest on Saturday’s edition of ‘The Truth’ with Olisa Adibua.

During the interview session, the singer spoke on sundry issues, including her controversial ‘Wanted’ single and how her success in the music industry has redefined how women entertainers are now perceived within a male-dominated industry.

Even though she was asked about her rumoured marital issues with former manager and husband, Tunji ‘Tee Billz’ Balogun, she refused to utter a word about it.

According to Tiwa Savage, “Every woman has that element and that period where they just feel sexy inside. I think I was going through a phase. Yea I wasn’t scared to show it and wasn’t scared of any backlash that was going to come, because I know that whatever happens, I can always back up any controversy with my talent.

“The song is my favourite in my album. It might not be most people’s cup of tea in Nigeria, but internationally, they listen to that song and they love it. The guy who produced it is Oak, who produced ‘Your Love’ for Nicki Minaj.

“So I love the song. I’m influenced by Beyonce and by Mariah Carey by Rihanna, Brandy. I’m influenced all the time. I wasn’t thinking whether Nigeria was ready or not, I was just doing something from an artistic point of views. No regrets at all.”
