Tiwa Savage’s recent high profile interview with US Magazine, Allure was marred by power interruptions, which ultimately highlighted the terrible power situation in Nigeria.
The singer opened up on her family, career, and thriving in the male-dominated Nigerian music industry. But of course, the intermittent power supply which nearly overshadowed the interview has become the most conspicuous aspect of the whole interaction.
According to the article, power went out three times at the singer’s location and Tiwa had to apologize to the interviewer who was in Ghana at the time.
The magazine’s write-up read in part;
”Tiwa Savage’s electricity went out three times during our video call. “Sorry about the power breakup,” she apologizes each time.
I totally understand as we’re both connecting from West Africa: Savage in Lagos, Nigeria, where she’s been since the pandemic began; me in Accra, Ghana, where I’ve been for the past two months to be with family.
Electricity going out is a regular occurrence in major African cities such as ours. Despite the steady interruptions, Savage’s energy never flags.”
