The one they call the Queen of afro-pop music, Tiwa Savage, has made a stunning revelation that the glamour and glitz associated with some of them in show business is only but a facade.
If anything, she sometimes feels depressed by low self-esteem, and that things would have more miserable without the help of push-up bras and make up.
She admits that she gets a lot of mails from young girls, desiring the fantasy life of showbiz personages like her, but wonders if they understood the underpinnings of a life in entertainment circles..
“I get a lot of messages from young girls who are depressed with low self-esteem because they don’t feel pretty like the social media girls they see every day and my heart breaks because I feel like that too sometimes.
“We are all in this together, I’m not perfect, and not the prettiest, sexiest, richest but I’ll remain kind and seek after God’s heart because none of the others matters to Him.
“Ultimately God’s approval is all we need”, she said. She added that contrary to public belief, she hardly sees herself as a pretty woman.
“Some people are born beautiful, flawless skin, long curly hair, fair skin but some of us grew up looking at the world’s definition of beauty and found ourselves not fitting into that standard but with the help of makeup, filters and push up bras we feel a little closer.
What happens when you take all that off and you stare at yourself in the mirror do you still think you are beautiful? You should because you are and when we meet our creator face to face it’s those with the kindest hearts that will stand as most beautiful.
“So while we work on the outside make sure we work on our hearts.”
Savage revealed in the expose as carried by Vanguard that in spite of the glitz and glamour she displays on social media, she sometimes feels depressed by low self-esteem.
Recall that she recently floored Davido, Fally Ipupa, others, at the just concluded MTV Europe Music Awards, to she became the first African female musician to win Best African Act award category,
