Tiwa Savage Explains Why She Will Never Tell Her Mother Another Secret Again

She told her mother and pleaded with her mother not to tell anyone when she was invited to play at King Charles III’s coronation, but her mother told her brother in less than 20 minutes.

Tiwa Savage acknowledged that she misjudged the significance of playing during the coronation of the King.

“When I got the call about performing at the King’s coronation, I didn’t tell a lot of people at first,” she explained. But eventually, I told my mother, and as usual, I begged her not to tell anyone. Then, approximately 20 minutes later, my brother calls me and says, ‘Oh my god!’ And I’m like, wow, mum! So I’m not going to tell my mother anything else.

“I didn’t realize how big of a deal [performing at the King’s coronation] was at first.” I also had no idea who else was going to be performing. So I had no idea I’d be the sole one representing the Commonwealth.

So I had no idea I’d be the sole one representing the Commonwealth. So, when I started receiving that information, I thought, ‘Wow! ‘There is no pressure.’ But it was fantastic.

“As I previously stated, to represent the Commonwealth, and simply looking back on the performance.” It was memorable. It was a fantastic experience for me.”

Tiwa Savage made history as the first Nigerian singer to perform at a British royal event in March, when she wowed attendees at King Charles III’s coronation concert and Big Lunch.
