To avoid the shame of having her sex tape released by someone blackmailing her, Nigerians have asked singer, Tiwa Savage to release the said tape before those seeking to extort her do.
They are asking the singer to toe the same line as American singer, Sia who’s moved ahead of her blackmailers to release her nude photos after she was threatened.
They also cited the case of a female Fuji musician, Queen Salewa Abeni who released her nude photos after someone threatened to do so if she does not pay up.
“Not many know this, But last year someone threatened Queen Salawa Abeni with nude pictures and she posted it herself.
A few years ago, someone threatened Sia and she posted it herself.
Tiwa Savage has been threatened.
I’m not giving any advice but there are two examples up there,” Dr Olufunmilayo said on Twitter.
“Someone once threatened to release nude pictures of Sia unless she pays him and she decided to release the nude pictures herself. Tiwa Savage should do the needful,” Kevin Odanz said on Twitter.
Tiwa Savage had said she is trying to control the narrative by moving ahead of the blackmailer.
“It’s a tape of me and the person I’m dating right now and it got out,” Tiwa mentioned.
Tiwa added that she will not pay the blackmailers, explaining that she won’t fold to the demands, adding that it’s a short clip that was recorded off Snapchat.
“I decided I was not going to pay the person because if I do, two months from now, three months down the line or even two years later, you are going to come back again,” Tiwa said, “Who knows, if I send the money, the person will probably release it. I am not going to let anyone blackmail me for doing something natural.”
