Tiwa Savage is featured in the September issue of Elle South Africa Magazine.
In the editorial, the superstar singer talks about what she considers her biggest failure, her deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation and being a tomboy among other things.
On her biggest failure, the mother of one says, “My biggest failure was exposing my private life too much. There will always be speculation, but by addressing it you are adding more fuel to the fire. I now choose not to address anything.”
On her deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation: “We are finalising the details with [his company] Roc Nation, and it is an amazing opportunity for any artist, particularly a woman, because traditionally such global parts have largely been enjoyed by the male artists.” She adds “I’m so honoured it has happened to me. And while it may mean, as a woman, I need to work 10 times harder to make things happen, I am fine with that. My approach is: do what it takes”.
