Beautiful songstress Tiwa was a guest on Toolz radio show and she was definitely a well of wisdom.
She got real in her answers and talked on topics ranging from gender equality to how pregnancy had changed her body.
Here are some revealing things we got from her no holds barred interview.
On Gender Discrimination
It’s real. I’m not going to say I’m completely comfortable with it but it is what it is. You have to deal with it. If it means you have to work 10 times harder than your male counterparts, don’t complain about it, do what you have to do.
On Gender Inequality
I know I’ll (ruffle) a few feathers but I also don’t think men and women are equal, I don’t think that’s how God created us that way… especially in the household anyway. So I think as females when we realise that yeah we can be strong in our career, but when we are home we have to realise that the man is the head of the house.
On her marriage to Tee Billz
She said she and Tee Billz “are doing what they are doing privately and it should remain private” in response to Toolz’s question on whether they are back together.
On her son going into music
She doesn’t want her son to feel pressured to do music because that’s what she’s doing and he’s a little shy. If he’s dancing and he catches you watching him, he’d stop.She’d love for her son to be a ball player (basketball or soccer), so he can buy her a retirement home…
On how her body has changed due to pregnancy
She said the day she’ll never forget was the day she had her son after a 22-hour labour, adding that she has a lot of scars on her body to remind her. She said she’s embracing her stretch marks, adding that if she were not in the entertainment industry, she wouldn’t have tried to lose weight. She said she has a pouch and she isn’t going to do surgery to get rid of it. She added that she has plans for her stretch marks, which is to paint them in different colours.
