Tiwa Savage studied business administration at university before embarking on her illustrious music career.

In a video shared on her Instagram page by colleague Bankulli Osha on Friday, Tiwa was seen addressing the audience in academic garb.

She said she faced severe bullying, among other things, and was suspended from school several times.

“Actually, I failed at many things,” she said. “I was bullied a lot at school when I moved to the UK, I ran away from home a few times, I got suspended from school a few times.”
