Universal Music recording artiste, Tiwatope Savage has told those who care to listen that ‘Koroba’ a song off her latest album titled ‘Celia’ does not promote prostitution as percieved in some quarters.

The mother of one was moved to set the records straight when a critic on Twitter accused her of promoting transactional sex in the first verse of the song.

The first verse of the song in question goes thus; “I no come this life to suffer. If I follow politician, you go hear am for paper, them go call am prostitution.

“Who no like enjoyment, if money dey for pocket, shebi na national budget o, we go blow am like trumpet.”

However, the singer and songwriter who sought to defend her choice of lines and lyrics in the song said on Twitter that she in no way promoted prostitution saying her song is being misinterpreted and the current view held about the track is a misconception.


Street hop singer, Oritsefemi has been accused of domestic violence after reports emerged that he has been physically abusing his wife Nabila Fash, which has thus forced her out of their matrimonial home.

We gather that Oritsefemi has now taken up the fight to get his wife back after it was revealed that she is now putting up with her friend Caroline Danjuma who also took to social media to insinuate that domestic violence and drug abuse are the reasons for her friend’s marital crisis.

However, Oritsefemi has also thought it wise to tender a public apology to his wife, begging her to return home and also called out Caroline Danjuma, accusing her of being behind his marital crisis.

”Forgive me my love I miss you daily boo. I truly miss everything about you; make una help me beg her please. I need to enter street for this #endsars Na me really fit this sars people,Na them father I be … person gats fist him home before him focus outside.. I beg my people make una beg her for me… am deeply sorry Nabila … I love you from the bottom of my heart,” he wrote.

“@Carolynahutchings is the evil between Oritsefemi and Nabila… Don’t get carried away with fake gist.”

“Caroline this is the beginning of your problem in life. Get ready for it,” Oritsefemi added.
