She further claimed that with the aid of vigilante-style private security, the kidnapping attempt was thwarted, and everyone involved was turned over to the police at CID Alagbon in Ikoyi.
The police will shortly brief the media, she continued, adding that the single mother is fine and in isolation.
Kemi wrote on her Instagram page, “Earlier today Thursday April 13th 2023, an attempt was made to KIDNAP Tiwa Savage in Lagos. A new domestic staff specifically a driver was passing information to his co-conspirators who have been trailing her as she left home for days.
“The guys have all been arrested with the help of vigilante style private security and they were handed to police at CID Alagbon in Ikoyi.
“Celebrities be very careful and wary of your domestic staff at all times. Nigeria is very very dangerous these days. Don’t post your children online or your home etc. Just post your WORK.
“Tiwa is OK and in seclusion. I haven’t spoken with her and police will brief the media soon.”
Tiwa Savage’s Achievements
The title of “doctor” was earned by one of the leading ladies of Afrobeats.
In 2022, Tiwa Savage received an honorary degree from the University of Kent in Canterbury, England.
“Some call me queen, but it’s Dr. Savage from now on,” Savage said in a speech while accepting the degree.
The “Somebody’s Son” singer received an honorary doctorate degree in music — making her one of ten to be awarded honorary degrees at the institution.
Starting her career in music at just 16-years-old, Kent’s Dr. Catherine Robinson shared at the ceremony that her achievements are “as lengthy as it is prestigious” and “such a track record of exceptional and meritorious accomplishments deserves recognition.”
After thanking the university, her family, and friends for their support, the Nigerian award-winning artist and Kent alumna took the time to “be real” during her acceptance speech.
She spoke about her failures and being bullied while also listing her achievements over the years. She’s earned two degrees, become the first African woman to win an MTV Europe Music Award, and covered international magazines.
To sum it up, Savage simply explained that her success has come from never giving up.
“And that’s my message to every single one of you today,” Savage said during her speech. “I know you’re going to be overwhelmed with decisions of what you’re going to do the minute you walk out of this door…My prayer is that you one day will stand like this addressing students because you too have gone out into the world and you’ve overcome and you never gave up.”
She added: “I want you to make a promise today. Not to your parents, not to your best friends, but to yourself that you will become everything that God has created you to become on Earth.”
