As some City FM OAPs were blasting Tiwa Savage, they had no idea that they were being recorded and the singer has now blasted them for it.
Tiwa jumped on Instagram and shared the clip of the 3 on-air personalities insulting her.
According to her, she was surprised that fellow ladies who should be supporting her are the ones blasting her person.
Her words, “Yooo look at the so-called FEMALE gatekeepers #OAP that are supposed to help fellow female artists and shout that female should support each other are seen here abusing female artists not knowing cameras were still rolling. And they wonder why I keep to myself 😏 To the ladies in this video hope you keep the same energy when you see me in person #2Seconds.”
Do you think Tiwa got what she deserved?
