The multiple award-winning Nigerian singer said this while addressing different issues in the Nigerian music industry as a guest on the entertainment show hosted by Arise Television.

Tiwa said that although entertainers cannot be banned from using sexual scenes in their stage-craft, she agreed that a competent body or authority can be set up to regulate it.

However, she disclosed that contemporary musicians are largely misunderstood in the same way the late Afrobeat King, Fela’s dancers were misunderstood because of their sexual displays on stage.

“There is no way a movie and entertainment will not have sexual scenes. You cannot stop an artiste from being sexual in entertainment

“The only thing we can do as Africans is to provide guidelines.

“When I performed initially in Nigeria, they screamed that it was too much; that it was too sexual. We are still fighting the same battle the Fela girls fought.

“Fela’s girls were misunderstood. What they did on stage was just entertainment.

“What they do on stage doesn’t mean that they are loose off stage. People say Fela is godfather but people forget the women that added glamour to Fela’s show.”

Tiwa has been a victim of criticisms where her wardrobe choices are concerned especially since her signing with Roc Nation.
