It was the day Tuface had his Album Launch Concert in Eko Hotel. Tiwa Savage was to open for him. Five minutes before she came on stage, this happened:
My dress for the performance came literarily 5 minutes before I was supposed to go on stage so, I didn’t have time to try it on before my performance.
The emcee announced: next on stage is rising star, Tiwa Savage
So I quickly put it on, and the next thing I was going stage. And as soon as I was walking on stage the Zip ripped at the back and I didn’t even know. Banky W saw it and was like oh my God! Your whole back is open.
And this was the first time I was meeting Tuface, MI, Banky W, there like I said, I was really, really embarrassed. They tried to pin me up but all these time the band and everybody was on stage, so I had to go back, change into something that was not planned. It was quite embarrassing.
That is not how the story ends.
I was fairly unknown at that time. I was just asked to sing the National Anthem, and I remembered when they mentioned my name Tiwa Savage and everyone was like who is that?
But by the time finished performing, I actually got people standing up on their feet. So that, also, was a great moment for me.
