Of course the music industry knows that getting to feature an International artiste is a leverage that brings more money, fame and awards.
However, should one be recklessly desperate to get a collaboration from an International artiste?
Recently buzzing on social media is Tiwa Savage who is literarily on her kneels begging Rihanna to work with her.
This is following the question thrown at her by one of her fans, asking to know which International artiste she (Tiwa Savage) would like to work with.
Responding, the female Nigerian singer screamed “Rihanna.”
Did she stop there?
Having answered the question from that fan, Tiwa Savage went ahead to create an hashtag, RihannaXTiwa, imploring her fans to use it and tag Rihanna.
See her answer to the question and the follow up tweet:
While this went down well with some of her fans, others saw her act as downgrading to the Nigerian music industry and all that it stands for.
See some reactions:
Sounds true right?
But wait o, is this in anyway wrong?
Is it bad to call out an artiste on social media for a music collaboration?
What should she have done differently?
