However, things took a drastic turn when they both went public with their hidden animosity for each other.

The Beginning of the Rivalry Between Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade

Recall that Yemi Alade publicly claimed to be on the same level with Davido and Wizkid, stating that there is no such thing as number one artiste in Nigeria.

She also passed up the chance to stand for Tiwa Savage, while on a radio show and the presenter talked down at her rival. The presenter, Misi, stated that Yemi Alade has a fine vocal range, while Tiwa Savage just shouts. Literally she said Tiwa’s music is crap and Yemi failed to defend her.

In reaction to the statement, Tiwa shared a video of herself singing. She also made suggestive posts that suggested Misi begging from her. She also hinted that she has cut ties with the OAP and any other person who tries to involve her in “BS.”
