Tiwa Savage, has reflected on her struggling days, how she was so broke and had to live in a shelter for drug addicts in Brooklyn, New York.
She shared the story at a surprise party organised by her friends and family for her “Celia” album launch.
Tiwa Savage said she had just graduated from the university in New York and was very broke because she couldn’t work as an International student.
“I think I was 22 and we were in New York. I was living in Bed-Stuy, kind of like a shelter. A lot of people didn’t know this.
“I was in a shelter for women that had drug abuse problems.
“I just graduated from school. You know as an international student you can’t work. So, I couldn’t work. I was doing the side thing in Bed-Stuy which is like the hood in Brooklyn.”
