Nigeria music Queen Tiwa Savage has revealed in a recent interview how she tried to kill herself not just once but twice.
The songstress said she attempted to take her own life as a result of the bullying she received as a black kid in London.
The award winning singer and songwriter shared this information during her Black Box interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on ‘Bounce Live Radio’.
She said she moved to London with her mother at the age of 10. She also said her strong Nigerian accent at the time was mocked by her classmates in school.
“I was teased so bad. They used to call me ‘African girl’, ‘Foo foo’, ‘Your food smells’ and so on. It was terrible. It was so bad that I literally tried to kill myself two times. I was really depressed.”
