I tried to kill myself twice as a child - Tiwa Savage reveals

Tiwa Savage has revealed how she almost killed herself twice while in London. 

Tiwa Savage shared this information during her Black Box interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Live Radio.

She disclosed she attempted to take her own life as a result of the bullying she received as a black kid in London.

Tiwa revealed that she moved to London with her mother at the age of 10. She also said her strong Nigerian accent at the time didn't help her in school

In her words: “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.”
