Shocking Nigerian vocalist, Tiwatope Savage, better realized by her stage name Tiwa Savage, has gotten a privileged doctorate certificate from her institute of matriculation, Kent University.
The 42-year-old alumni of Business Administration from the University of Kent, London, was given the degree for her extraordinary accomplishment in the music business around the world.
The “somebody’s son” crooner finished a degree in Business Administration at the college and later won a grant to concentrate on Professional Music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
In photographs and recordings from the occasion that was held in Canterbury on Friday, July 15, the vocalist is seen wearing her doctoral outfit while being flanked by her child, Jamil, and other relatives.
Sharing a brief biography of the international music act, the school wrote in part,
“Tiwa Savage is an award-winning singer-songwriter and Afrobeats star. She is best known for her hit singles such as ‘Mr Lova Lova’ ft Duncan Mighty, ‘Diet’ and ‘Tiwa’s Vibe’ all reaching the No. 1 spot across charts all over Africa and securing her position as one of Afrobeats’ leading artists. In 2019, she signed an exclusive recording contract with Universal Records and released her first global single titled ’49-99’ under Motown Records.
In November 2018, Tiwa was crowned Best African Act by the MTV European Music Awards and made history as the first female to win the accolade. In the same year, Tiwa became the first African female to sell out London’s IndigO2 and was handpicked by Coldplay’s Chris Martin to perform alongside Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Jay Z live at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg…”
