I have learnt not to tell my mum a secret — Tiwa Savage



I have learnt not to tell my mum a secret -- Tiwa Savage

When it comes to letting anyone in on a secret, Tiwa Savage has made it known she’s never letting any cat out of the bag in front of her mum.

The Nigerian artiste revealed she would be making the resolute decision to keep her lips sealed when it comes to confidential matters, particularly in relation to her mother.

This determination comes after a recent incident in which she confided in her mother about a significant career milestone, only to have her trust betrayed.

In an exclusive interview with MTV UK, Tiwa Savage recounted the unfortunate event that led to her newfound resolution.

The “All Over” crooner was left astounded when her invitation to perform at the coronation of King Charles III came with strict instructions for secrecy. Yet, she had to let someone in on the secret, confiding in her mother about the event.

However, to her dismay, the cat was brought out from the bag in front of her brother in 20 minutes.

Recounting the sequence of events, Tiwa Savage said;

“When I got the call about performing at the King’s coronation, I didn’t tell a lot of people at first. But eventually, I told my mum and as always I was like, Mum, please don’t tell anyone.

“Then literally 20 minutes later, my brother is calling me, he was like, ‘Oh my gush!’ And I’m like, mum, wow! So, I’m not telling my mum anything again.”

Tiwa Savage of course had no idea how big it was performing at the coronation of King Charles III until she actually performed in front of the King of England.

She said;

“Initially, I didn’t realize how big a deal it [performing at the King’s coronation] was. And I also didn’t know who else was going to be performing either.

“So, I didn’t know I was going to be the only one representing the Commonwealth. So, when I started getting that information, I was like, ‘Wow! No pressure.’ It was great though.”
