Tiwa Savage is being extorted for money over a sex tape…well, a video clip of her involved in a sex act.
The Afro Beats queen opened up about her dilemma during an interview with Angie Martinez.
According to Tiwa, the person she’s currently dating accidentally posted the clip on Snapchat and quickly deleted it.
But, he didn’t delete it fast enough. Someone recorded the clip.
The person contacted Tiwa’s team and demanded money to keep the clip under wraps.
Tiwa Savage told Angie:
There is a dark side to being in the limelight. I’m not going to call it a sex tape, but it is a tape of me and the person I’m dating right now.
She also made one thing very clear…she has no plans of paying the lowlife who is trying to blackmail her.
I pay it now and two months down the line you’re going to come back again, and then in two years. And who knows? Even if I do send you the money, you’ll probably release it anyway.
I’m not going to allow anyone to blackmail me for doing something that is natural. That’s what’s making me even angrier, like, ‘No you’re not going to do that to me.’ If you want to put it out — I’m that crazy, I could put it out myself. You’re not making any money from this. This is an intimate moment with someone I’m dating.
We’re trying to stall them, so I’m just going to get ahead of it, own my narrative and own up to it. Because I’m not ashamed of it.
This is someone I’m dating, I’m not cheating, he’s not cheating, we’re grown… You’re going to put it out regardless, I’m sure. And for me, it’s like, why now? Like, when the music is so good and I don’t want this to overshadow what I have going on.
Watch a clip of the convo below.
Here is the full interview.
Kudos to Tiwa Savage for not allowing someone to shake her down for money.
But, I would also caution her to keep an eye on her dude who is accidentally sharing private videos on socials. 👀
