OAPs at City FM went on insulting Tiwa Savage without knowing that they were being recorded.
The female OAPs were captured making fun of the Afropop queen, claiming she doesn’t know how to write and making money by singing other people’s songs.
The OAPs also mentioned Yemi Alade in the shade and laughed mockingly as they talked about the two female artistes who are celebrated as the pride of African music.
Taking to Instagram, Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade shared the video with a response to the Radio ladies.
Tiwa Savage expressed displeasure that women who should be supporting one another got so busy trolling other females.
In her words:
“Yooo look at the so-called FEMALE gatekeepers #OAP that are supposed to help fellow female artists and shout that female should support each other are seen here abusing female artists not knowing cameras were still rolling. And they wonder why I keep to myself 😏 To the ladies in this video hope you keep the same energy when you see me in person #2Seconds,” she captioned the video.
Yemi Alade on her part, believes that women do support each other and called the OAPs the few bad eggs whose mental state could be questioned. She wrote:
“It’s impossible to be liked by everyone! But in this clip we see 3 women ridiculing and making small talk about successful women, to the extent of calling someone a FOOL!, she Even took her song off the systems programmed play,I don’t even understand the English or language this lady used to insult me when she mentioned my name.
“However, I am even more perplexed as to the mental state of these women. How can people this wounded in spirit and poor in mind be able to get jobs that involve addressing millions of people, influencing their thoughts,educating listeners,promoting justice?
“Nonetheless!! Women DO support women!and unfortunately, these 3 are just a few of the bad eggs.
I cant forgive you because you haven’t offended me to be sincere ,lion no dey concern himself with wetin sheep dey talk.
“Even if i run into them ,I wouldn’t even know who they are.if we start to listen in on the PURELY EVIL CONVERSATIONS PEOPLE have about Artists; female or male, omo data go finish.
“I know a few OAPS that know how to voice their opinion without being hateful, but these three ? Need re-orientation,re- education,, and redirection in life. This is def how they talk about all artists!all people! This is the hate they SPREAD! NAIJA WHICH WAY!
We didnt Rise to top because of insults, neither can it bring us down!”
