Nollywood actor and 2023 presidential aspirant, Yul Edochie has commended Tiwa Savage for her courage and strength over the controversies involving her sex tape.
Tiwa Savage had revealed during an interview with American OAP, Angie Martinez of Power 105.1, that she was being blackmailed by an unknown person who threatened to release a sex tape that featured her and her current lover.
The ‘Somebody’s Son’ crooner revealed that the blackmailer demanded money from her so as not to release the sex tape, but she has decided not to pay the money.
On Monday night, a sex tape leaked online. While the face of the man involved in it did not show, the lady in the video bears a close resemblance with Tiwa Savage.
As the video went viral, some celebrities drummed up support for the singer, as they uploaded her picture and hailed her on social media.
Tiwa Savage was also criticised for her actions by some colleagues and fans, as some described her as not being a good example to the younger generation.
However, Edochie in a recent post, said Tiwa’s way of handling the blackmail had inspired those going through such silently.
He further urged the singer to stay stronger, adding that ‘Nobody holy Pass’.
Edochie wrote: “I commend you Tiwa Savage for the way you handled the issue you may not know this but you’ve inspired so many people who may be going through blackmail silently.
“You said capital NO to blackmail and it takes a lot of strength to do that. It is well you’re a human being like the rest of us nobody holy pass.
“In life there will be ups and downs you enjoy the ups and learn from the downs. Anything that doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
“Keep your head up, keep being strong, this too shall pass.”
