But in his reaction to the lashing, the OAP has insisted that his opinion counts and he can speak authoritatively as an experienced stakeholder in the entertainment industry.

He said:

Let me state this unequivocally clear that given the years I have put into my craft as a broadcaster/OAP, I occupy a premise as an authority to give critique to music and the custodians of it as an art form ..

I won’t meander the maze of mediocrity with the popularity or resort to sycophancy just to be liked or accepted . I have had my fair share of fame as an OAP as one of the best legacy Abuja ever had on its airwaves .

For a career that’s spanning over 13years and still counting , I am one of the gatekeepers entrusted with our airwaves and so,I will give my professional unbiased critique regardless of who’s ox is being gored. We’ve gotten so use to mediocrity in so much, we confuse it for excellence and Superstar!

  1. Sing your own nah. Your taste may not be the taste of others. I am not one of her fan but that doesn’t mean i should talk down on her gift

  2. He’s very right, the only thing she know how to do is shout and jump around small wizkid. I use to respect her but naaaa, not anymore

  3. that’s the guys opinion. I don’t fancy tiwa savage either..
    Nigerians don’t over hype her already..

  4. Benny Ark, kindly go and work on your marriage before talking down on others. Keep your opinion to yourself.

  5. For me shouting while singing is not bad ,but what is really bad is singing without good meaning, Tiwa savage is a good singer.

  6. He is entitled to his own opinion, but I think Tiwa Savage’s voice is just the way it is naturally, I do not think she shouts, and I love it like that
