Barely three weeks after losing close friend, Obama DMW, Tiwa Savage has confirmed the sad passing of her father. According to the 41-year-old singer on Instagram, he passed away in the early hours of Monday July 19, 2021. Although we do not know a lot about her father, Savage left a hint a chronic illness led to his demise, writing “You fought till the very end, you really fought daddy, it’s been rough for you these past couple years but you are resting now.”
Born in Isale Eko, Lagos, Savage and her family relocated to England when she was only eleven. There, she began developing her interest in music, subsequently participating in talents shows before enrolling in the Berklee College of Music.
