Fans of Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage have criticised her on social media for saying Jesus, the son of God, is the inspiration behind her hit song, ‘Somebody’s Son.’
In a video sighted by WithinNigeria, Tiwa Savage told her fans at a show that many people discouraged her about the song because it predominantly addressed women.
Tiwa Savage said, “when I wrote this song, a lot of people told me it wasn’t going to be a hit because only females could sing along to it. They said, ‘Tiwa, this is not going to be a hit because men are not going to be able to sing Somebody’s Son.’”
She continued, “but you know what I told them? When I wrote this song, I wasn’t even thinking about a relationship, I was thinking about Jesus Christ, because he is the real somebody’s son, so I said to them people will relate to the song because whether you’re a man or a woman, we all need somebody’s son.”
