African afro-pop queen Tiwa Savage is the rave of the moment, with all flashes all over her.
Her performance this year has been outstanding, landing her the EMA’s MTV Best African Artiste of the year.
However, behind the beauty queen and the angelic voice on TV, Tiwa Savage shares some personal facts.
Talking about the social media, she said:
“I get a lot of messages from young girls who are depressed with low self-esteem
because they don’t feel pretty like the social media girls they see every day and my heart breaks
because I feel like that too sometimes.
“We are all in this together, I’m not perfect, and not the prettiest, sexiest, richest
but I’ll remain kind and seek after God’s heart because none of the others matters to Him.
“Ultimately God’s approval is all we need”,
Although, many perceive Tiwa to be quite attractive, but she says beauty is in the heart.
“Some people are born beautiful, flawless skin, long curly hair, fair skin but some of us grew up looking at the world’s definition of beauty and found ourselves not fitting into that standard but with the help of makeup, filters and push up bras we feel a little closer.
“What happens when you take all that off and you stare at yourself in the mirror, do you still think you are beautiful?
“You should because you are and when we meet our creator face to face it’s those with the kindest hearts that will stand as most beautiful.
“So while we work on the outside make sure we work on our hearts.”
