Tiwa Savage fumes at TW Magazine

22 October 2013, 12:43

Abuja - Music sensation Tiwa Savage has allegedly hit out at TW Magazine over a review of her debut album Once Upon a Time.

The pop singer, who covered the October edition of the women's publication, lashed out at its editors over a review of her debut album.

"S/O Adeola Omitiran n Bukola Fagade.So called editors of TW mag.PS didn't use low register on "babymo"maybe u shld study music b4 u judge it (sic)," Tiwa angrily wrote on her Twitter account on October 18.

Nigeria Entertainment Today discovered the reviewer of the album, Adeola Omitiran, is an intern and her article was not checked or edited by the magazine's editors before it went to press.

The other person Tiwa named, Bukola Fagade, reportedly had nothing to do with writing the article as she is only a graphic designer.

Savage reportedly also called up the editors of the magazine to express her dissatisfaction before the tweet.

"We thought they settled everything over the phone until we saw Tiwa's tweet. I wonder why she still went on to the blast the girl" one insider told NET.

Tiwa also targeted NET's contributing writer, Ayomide Tayo, who wrote about her music career earlier in April 2013.

"Once Upon A Time opens with a Disney inspired fairy tale account of Tiwa Savage's relationship with her manager Tunji 'TBillz' Balogun," Omitiran's review read.

"Wanted, potent and upbeat reggae track, works as a great opener. Her lower register mode of singing works on Ileke, – a roll call for females to shake their booty – but fails miserably on others like Ejim Afia and Baby Mo.

With 21 songs, one has to dig deep to find the real substance with too many fillers, too much autotune and too much Don Jazzy. However for a debut album, it's commendable effort."
