Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has revealed that she brushed her teeth six times in preparation for the kissing scene in her debut movie, ‘Water & Garri.’

The Afrobeats diva explained that she indulged in the hygienic practice to give a good impression.

She disclosed this in a recent interview with BET.

She said, “The first day on set, I had my kissing scene. I am glad it was my first day because I just went right into it. I remember in my dressing room, I brushed my teeth like five, six times because I was like I needed to represent. But, he was very lovely. All of the cast was. They were really, really nice.”

Savage, who played the lead character (Aisha) in the movie, shared kisses with Andrew Bunting, her co-star (who plays Kay in the movie).
