Nigerian vocalist, Tiwa Savage has revealed why she decided to venture into music even though it was not her passion.

The award-winning singer said she only pursued a career to be a musician because she was crushing on a man who always associated with musicians.

She shared this surprising revelation about her journey into music during a recent interview with MTV Live to promote her new movie project, “Water and Garri.”

Tiwa confessed that her initial passion was for acting, not music.

“I’ve always wanted to do acting. Acting was one of my first loves before music. I got into music because I had a crush on a guy, and he was always around musicians, so I said, ‘yeah, forget acting and just go into music,'” Tiwa revealed.
