Tiwa Savage has said she will not allow someone extort money from her ‘for doing something that is natural’.
The boyfriend she is dating presently is said to have accidentally uploaded their sex footage to Snapchat last month before removing it later. Before it could be taken off, someone had already downloaded it and has been attempting to blackmail Tiwa with it.
She told Power 105.1 in New York that she feared if she paid, the person would come back asking for more. “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, he is going to come back again.
“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. I am not going to call it a sex tape but it’s a tape between me and the person I am dating right now. I am that crazy I could put it out myself – you are not making any money off me” Tiwa Savage declared.
The 41-year old Nigerian singer said she cried when she realized the mistake, fearing the reaction of her fans if the video appeared online again. She added that it had given her sleepless nights as she fretted over how the video could damage her reputation, relationships with friends, family, and impact her six-year-old son.
