He said that he’s finding it hard to maintain the same respect for the singer.
With such unexpected responses, Tiwa savage was quiet and didn’t make an official comment regarding the matter until now. Even though she did not directly address the issue but posted a picture on Instagram with a perplex caption that said, “ Charge that sh*t to the game and never speak on it again.” She might be indirectly asking her fans to move on from the issue and not repeatedly speak of it. She still hasn’t officially discussed the matter yet and might not be discussing it in the near future .
