Mavin queen, Tiwa Savage has explained her decision to perform while she was pregnant in Uganda.

The 35 year old mother of one performed in Kampala at the Uganda’s annual Women’s Day celebration and Social media awards.

Speaking with Genevieve magazine on her decision to hit the stage at that time she said,


“I went ahead with that performance because my doctor had given me the go ahead. And I had also contacted a local doctor out there.

However, even though I did do a few other performances like that; I wasn’t planning to be that energetic at that event. But I got so much love from the crowd in Uganda and it was very emotional for me, considering the stage of the pregnancy at the time.

Before, I got there; I had doubts about how I would be received and if I was going to be made to sit on a stool during the performance. But when I got there, everyone was warm, loving and understanding of my situation.

In all, that performance was unexpected. I got that energy from somewhere, but trust me, the next day I was in bed all day.”
