Koroba doesn't promote prostitution - Tiwa Savage reacts
On the 5th of October, a tweet argument centered around the first verse of ‘Koroba’ was posted stating that the first verse encourages transactional sex. The first verse reads:
“I no come this life to suffer
If I follow politician
You go hear am for paper
Them go call am prostitutionWho no like enjoyment?If money dey for pocketShebi na national budget o?We go blow am like trumpet e (okay)”.
The ‘Kobora’ crooner responding to the tweet, debunked the misinterpretation but also taking a step further to address the misconceptions.
In her words:
“Let me break down the message 2 you sir - we crucify young women going after rich politicians for their money, calling them prostitutes but we don't call out the politicians. Hence the line ‘money wey you no work for’ we should hold them accountable too #koroba”.
This is one of the many reactions that has trailed the hit single off her CELIA album and in her interview with Ebro Darden on Hot 97, Tiwa addressed the issue more explicitly. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
