So in an interview with Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio in the US today, super star and single mum of one, Tiwa Savage, disclosed that she is the most popular female artiste in Africa.
Some of her fans agreed with her and some mocked her and gave the title to Angelique Kidjo...so many hate comments but read some of the reactions below:
One 2welve5 wrote "Aunty Tiwa until you get a Grammy nomination, you are not the most popular female artiste Angelique Kidjo is"
While one reasty__ said "Some people are sad that the biggest criticisms are coming from females, but forget that its best to call a spade a spade. No one is hating or being a hypocrite, it's like saying SKALES is more popular than NELSON MANDELA (joke). No one is denying she doesn't sing well, she does but SHE IS NOT THE MOST POPULAR FEMALE ARTIST IN AFRICA!!! Maybe Nigeria, which isn't true either. But to console her, she's in the top 15 most popular in Africa. She's not number one. @tiwasavage stop giving false praises to yourself, allow d masses to decide not u."
And one adam666419 said "Because u don snap pic with jay z why u no talk em since #ainthatingtho because fame where did it take Whitney to? Her songs are good love them but the most popular artiste is not u...just as aiko will say the same thing when u have riri,beyonce,Nicki n the rest"

Most people know ASA while some know tiwa , Yemi etc so respect people's opinion. I only listen to tiwa's shout out with sakordie and it has been on my favourite list for years but I know other zouk artists I like more than her. Till you conduct a survey please stop making statements like it is a fact....South Africans are here saying they don't know her much and some of you are insulting them.....are you in South Africa? Smh "

zuchradio wrote "Than Angelique kidjo? Asa? Nneka? Ivvonne chaka chaka? Late Brenda fassi? Late mariam makiba? Maybe for the younger generation(pple born around 2011) even yemi alade might be more popular than her with her African movement"
unbotheredzarmani said "Asa is a legend and most popular Africa female artist ..not you abeg you are a popular hoe "
mickeyspride said To some extent 🤔 Yes .. Fellow Nigerians *in Sani Abacha's voice* Appreciate your talent .. @souppawoman Angelique Kidjo is a legend and she is 56 and not in her prime anymore,it's like comparing 2 face and wizkid,2 face is great but at the moment wizkid is more popular ..
So, dear KFBERs, what say you?
