Three months after she made history as the only Nigerian artiste that performed at King Charles III coronation concert in May, Afrobeat superstar Tiwa Savage has relived memories of that iconic outing, saying she didn’t realize initially how big a deal it was to perform at the King’s coronation.
According to the singer, when she was invited to perform at King’s coronation, she told her mum about it and asked her not to tell anyone but the mum let the cat out of the bag in less than 20 minutes.
The songstress disclosed this in an interview with MTV UK.
According to her, “When I got the call about performing at the King’s coronation, I didn’t tell a lot of people at first. But eventually, I told my mum and as always I was like, ‘Mum, please don’t tell anyone’.
Then literally 20 minutes later, my brother was calling me, he was like, ‘Oh my gush!’ And I’m like, ‘mum, wow! So, I’m not telling my mum anything again. Initially, I didn’t realize how big a deal it was performing at the King’s coronation.
And I also didn’t know who else was going to be performing either. So, I didn’t know I was going to be the only one representing the Commonwealth. So, when I started getting that information, I was like, ‘Wow! No pressure.’ It was great though.
“Like I said, to represent the Commonwealth, and just looking back at the performance, it was iconic. It was such a great experience for me.”
