Tiwa Savage is on the rise. As one of the more dominant Afro Pop acts in the country, the last couple of months have seen her make a play for a larger stage and platform for her art. She’s recently inked a deal with the Universal music Group indicating the evolution of her priorities. Over the weekend, she made her debut appearance walking in a fashion show during Naomi Campbell’s 2019 Fashion for Relief event.
Founded in 2005, the model organizes the show at London Fashion Week every year as part of a bid to fight poverty, sickness and distress in deprived areas of London and other parts of the world. The organization has played a vital role in promoting a series of humanitarian causes, including the fight against Ebola and providing relief for hurricane Katrina. Usually, the show features a star studded cast. This year’s edition featured big names in the modeling industry such as; Adut Akech and Leomie Anderson wearing pieces that showcased colour, patterns, feathers and other works of art. Tiwa Savage made an appearance as one of the stars, storming down the runway in a monochrome dress. Tiwa Savage when speaking to Vogue about her catwalk explained the reality of runway modeling “it’s not as easy as it looks” she stated. The singer-songwriter also expressed her gratitude towards Campbell for letting her be a part of a great cause.
Will we be seeing more of Tiwa on the runway? With looks like that, we sure hope so.
