There was a mix-reaction on Instagram as a yet-to-be-identified blackmailer threatens to release a video of an award-winning song-writer, Tiwa Savage’s intimacy with her boyfriend in a video it obtained on Snapchat, a social media platform if his demands are not meet.

 In a series of tweets and comments on Instagram, many had also encouraged the singer to release the sex tape herself in order to call off the bluff of her blackmailer.

Although some of her close friends and colleagues have kept mute about the yet-to-be-released sex video, however, actress Sonia Ogriri stated that Savage’s overall disposition to the issue was not acceptable because many young girls looked up to her.

Ogiri wrote on her IG page, “Dear young girls. Please choose wisely your path. Dear @tiwasavage we love you, your songs and supported you all these years but this is unacceptable behaviour from you. So many young girls looking up to you, seeing this story and how you defending your act as “Natural “ isn’t OKAY, darling. Please don’t worry about your fans, worry about yourself and your son for tomorrow’s sake.

“Dear women, please desist from sex recording either with a boyfriend or even husband; anything can happen tomorrow and it might be used against your interest. For those of you that will call me clout chasing, I hope you see beyond clout because it won’t put more dollars in my account or put my son in a better school than the best he is now.”

This is coming after the “Somebody’s Son” singer granted an interview with American On-air personality, Angie Martinez,  on Power 105.1, narrating how her road manager informed her that her sex video was in the hands of the blackmailer.

But Savage said that she would not be blackmailed into paying money to shut the blackmailer up adding that she was simply “doing something natural” with her boyfriend. The Afrobeats queen also revealed that the video was not from her team; rather, she said, it was accidentally posted on Snapchat by her lover who deleted it immediately when he realised the error. Sadly, it was too late.

She said in part, “It is not from someone working closely with me. What happened is that the person did it on Snap and he posted it by accident, but he quickly deleted it. However, someone got it before he could delete it. It is a very short video, but it is me. It is going to be out there and I can just imagine the memes. I just found out yesterday. I could not sleep last night.

“We tried to stall them, but I later decided that I am going to own the narrative. I am not ashamed of it; this is someone I am dating; I am not cheating, neither is he. We are grownups. I cannot believe this is happening to me. I feel for my fans because they will have to keep defending me. I can switch off my phone or have someone run my account so I do not see that, but my fans will feel the need to protect me. I will like my fans to ignore it.”

Tiwa, who also revealed that her lover was upset with the development, said she had plans to speak to her six-year-old son about the sex tape to brace up for any ugly incident in the future.
