Tiwa Savage’s comment about Ayra Starr sparks outrage

Popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, has been criticised heavily online over her comment about her junior colleague, Ayra Starr.

In a new post, the mother of one talked about the artist’s dressing style and commended her for boldly taking the path that she was criticised for.

In her words: “I love Ayra Starr, I’m obsessed with her. It makes me emotional cause when I started. I got criticized for dressing too s*xy. So seeing someone like Ayra. If I see her wearing a short, I’m like, ‘make it shorter”.

However, Nigerians believed the advice was wrong and lambasted Tiwa over the appraisal on Ayra Starr’s dressing which they already deemed inappropriate.

Adamazi_prisca reacted: “Dressing too sexy? Is this what Y’all call sexy?🙆🏼‍♀️😭.”

Onemindxgram said: “My body my choice 😂. Stop wearing cloth Ayra we love you without it regardless.”

49fiee said: “This Tiwa sef. She didn’t see Ayras’ talent to compliment, na make it shorter she see. 😇”

Queenphayte_official wrote: “Make it shorter than this? No need for clothes then😢.”

Affectionate261 said: “This one wey mama Jamil talk no make any sense abeg🙄.”

Cal_empire remarked: “It’d have been nice, if Tiwa wrote to compliment her music/talent, but no. It’s using her to justify herself. Must it be about you?”

Brendanukagod__ added: “It’s truly a remarkable world we live in, with two incredibly talented females artists. While Ayra Star bares all for the world to see, Tems chooses to dress modestly, leaving much to the imagination. It’s a crazy world indeed.”

James_adiks said: “When people say most women talk and think like children, it might sound degrading, but when you observe you’ll find it to be true. For context, this is the advice Tiwa Savage, who’s arguably the most exposed Female celebrity in Africa is giving to a younger Colleague. 💔💔”

Somaliarita said: “I never expected this from Tiwa. So disappointed.”
