Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, says that she is currently being blackmailed over a sex video featuring her and her current partner.
Tiwa disclosed this in an interview with American radio host, Angie Martinez.
According to the Afro-pop star, the person in possession of her tape sent her the video and requested for an undisclosed amount.
She said: “Yesterday, I was leaving a radio station and I was in my car when my road manager sent me a message. She said I should check my phone. I checked it and there was a video, and I was just like, ‘Wow!’
“I asked him where he got it from and he said he received it about 20 minutes earlier.
“The video was sent to him and it is a tape of me and the person I am dating right now.
“The first thing I did after I got off the phone was that I sent it to my manager and asked what we should do.
“The person is asking for money now. The person I am dating is going crazy too.
However she has vowed not to give any money to the blackmailer as he will ask for more. She also added that she will not allow anyone to blackmail her for doing something natural.
“I decided I was not going to pay the person because if I do, two months from now, three months down the line, or even two years later, you are going to come back again.
“Who knows, if I send the money, the person will probably release it. I am not going to let anyone blackmail me for doing something natural,” she said.
Explaining how the video got leaked, she said her current boyfriend mistakenly posted it on Snapchat and deleted it quickly. But the blackmailer probably screen-recorded it before it was deleted.
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,” she said.
