Tiwa revealed that the pandemic is a really weird time for everyone, rich and poor, since we are all affected in ways we never expected.
According to him, it has humbled her as well because she was set to release her album and perform at a lot of shows, festivals, and tours.
She added that when the outbreak is all over, human beings will definitely learn to value the small things of life.
Her words, “This is a really weird time for everyone. Whether you are rich or famous; it affects everyone. It can be a little scary actually because one doesn’t know what would happen next. One doesn’t know what tomorrow brings. The coronavirus pandemic has humbled me because I had my album ready to be released. I had a lot of shows, festivals and tours lined up. All of that had to be cancelled and some postponed. We don’t know’’, when this will stop. This is despite all the plans one has already made. It definitely humbled all of us.”
“When this is over, I hope it teaches us to value the small things in life. I hope it teaches us to value spending time with family and saving; it is important to save. When we get back to our normal lives, I hope we don’t go back to what we were doing before. I hope this teaches us to value family, our mental state and being close to God. It’s only God that can take us out of this.”
