Tiwa Savage speaks on how challenging it is to be a modern African woman, combining a successful career with duties expected of a woman especially in Africa.
Tiwa Savage who covered Billboard’s latest issue with Davido and Mr Eazi, said being a modern African woman is limiting and she wants people to know that while they see her on the red carpet or in shows, they shouldn’t think she isn’t home cooking for her son or helping out with homework.
“A lot of people in Africa still have the idea that a woman has to be submissive, stay at home and be the wife and mother. Don’t get me wrong. Those are great morals to keep. But I think the modern African woman, the modern black woman is being limited.
“We can do both. You can have a successful full-time job, you can be strong and vulnerable at the same time. That’s the message I’m trying to put across. So when you see my videos or see me on the red carpet, don’t think I’m not at home cooking for my son or helping him with homework when I’m not doing shows.”
