Indecency is the reason I was prevented from performing at shows – Tiwa Savage

Award-winning singer Tiwa Savage has recalled how she used to be stopped from performing at concerts when she returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom because of her ‘revealing’ outfits.

She disclosed some of her earlier music videos were not aired because they were considered indecent.

The ‘Stamina’ crooner disclosed this in a recent interview with BET.

Savage said: “When I first moved back, I would turn up at a show and they would say I can’t perform because my outfit was too risqué.
