One of the best female artistes on the continent of Africa, Tiwa Savage has emotionally revealed in a fresh interview that she once attempted to commit suicide on two occasions.
The mother of one disclosed this in a recent Black Box interview with BBNaija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Live Radio. The beautiful divorcee said she threaded that path after the bullying she received as a black kid in London.
Tiwa Savage disclosed she moved to London with her mother at the age of 10. She also said her strong Nigerian accent at the time was mocked by her classmates in school.
She said, “I was teased so bad. They used to call me ‘African girl’, ‘Foo foo’, ‘Your food smells’ and so on. It was terrible. It was so bad that I literally tried to kill myself two times. I was really depressed.”
