‘We Can’t Stop Being Sexual in Entertainment’- Tiwa Savage
Tiwa Savage has revealed reasons why artistes can’t stop being sexual in the entertainment industry.
According to the Mavin queen, the desire for glamour and appeal is the reason entertainers cannot stop being sexual in their performances.
Tiwa gave this explanation as a guest on an entertainment show, hosted by Arise Television.
According to her, entertainers cannot be stopped from adapting sexual
scenes in their stage-craft but can be regulated through appropriate
guidelines provided by a competent body or authority.
She argued that while credit is being given to Fela, his dancing girls
added glamour to his shows, adding that the late Afrobeat King, Fela’s
dancers were misunderstood because of their sexual displays on stage.
The award winning singer said:
“There is no way a movie and entertainment will not have sexual scenes. You cannot stop an artiste from being sexual in entertainment
“The only thing we can do as Africans is to provide guidelines.
“When I performed initially in Nigeria, they screamed that it was too much; that it was too sexual. We are still fighting the same battle the Fela girls fought.
“Fela’s girls were misunderstood. What they did on stage was just entertainment.
“What they do on stage doesn’t mean that they are loose off stage. People say Fela is godfather but people forget the women that added glamour to Fela’s show.”
