    Tiwa Savage made this revelation during her surprise party held by friends to celebrate her with the release of her album, CELIA.

    Reminiscing on the past before her life as the Tiwa Savage we now know, the Koroba singer went from simply narrating to downright emotional as she thanked her friends, Elohor, whom she said is always there to pick her up. She said;

    “I think I was 22 and we were in New York, … I was living in.. kinda like a shelter, a lot of people didn’t know this. It was a shelter for women, they had like drug abusers… I just graduated from school.

    You know as an international; student, you can’t work, so I couldn’t;t work but I was doing the side(demonstrates with her hands)… It was … the hood in Brooklyn.

    Elohor came to NewYork, Elohor has always been that girl… she’s like let’s go to … she was like let’s just hook up, let’s go and eat. …

    We went to Timesquare, I ordered appetizer because I was so broke and I was so hungry! And I remember she was just looking at me asking what are you ordering and I was like I’m not really hungry…  and then she just kept asking me are you sure… and I just started crying and when asked what is the matter I was like Elohor i don’t have money… she started ordering stuff and even ordered stuff for me to take home. .. and I just remembered going home to my box (in the shelter) and I just started crying and I was like I can’t believe this girl just made my day… so the first time when they posted my picture on Timesquare, she was the first person I called to say Elohor do you remember the first time… that was twenty years later… If I gave up five years ago I wouldn’t be saying this story. Don’t let time rob you of your joy…”
