Tiwa Savage blocked me on social media because of my tweets about her – Pryse

Former Chocolate City rapper Pryse is apologetic over her remarks on Tiwa Savage sometime ago. The female rapper had taken sides with Victoria Kimani who blasted Tiwa Savage on her ‘Fvck You’ cover.

Kimani had belittled the success of the former Mavin Records singer attributing her it to illicit affairs in the industry.

In a chat with Showtime, Pryse revealed that she apologized to Tiwa after speaking with MI Abaga who explained certain things to her.

“I had a conversation with M.I and he brought up the issue and let me know that Tiwa was genuinely upset by my words. He pointed out that I had only served the narrative that women only want to tear other women down. That was never my intention. I only wanted to point out that, based on something I heard years ago, I thought she had done something wrong to females. I should have stayed out of it because God knows I don’t support Victoria’s actions. Also, I have no evidence besides hearsay. Tiwa is someone that has come under a lot of backlash and attack and stayed standing and I respect that. Sometimes we forget the people at the top are human too. Apologizing was the right thing to do”, she said.

Pryse stated that he accusations were not properly researched and unfounded hence it was necessary to apologize for what she had said.

“I’m truly sorry for the unfounded statement. I know Tiwa doesn’t know me enough to verify, but I care deeply about women and their struggles; maybe too much sometimes. I acted on those feelings when I made that statement. I was wrong and I want Tiwa to know I know that. I hope that whatever pain it caused can heal with time. My most sincere apologies.”

She noted that her attempts to reach the now UMG artiste was futile as she was blocked on every social platfrom by her.

“I tried to reach out to Tiwa but I realized she had blocked me on all platforms. This made me understand that my random tweeted thoughtless thought actually upset her. I don’t have her number so I decided the best I can do is make a public apology after all my accusation was public”, she said.
