Award-winning Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has revealed how her performance at King Charles III’s historic coronation nearly flopped due to anxiety.
After delighting guests at the King Charles III’s coronation concert and Big Lunch in March, Tiwa Savage became the first Nigerian musician to perform at a British royal function.
Tiwa Savage recently stated that she felt anxious during the initial few seconds of her performance at Windsor Castle when appearing on the Good Morning Britain TV show.
She said, “It was beautiful [to perform for the King]. It was such an amazing moment to represent the Commonwealth and to be on that stage.
“I was nervous, I will say the first few seconds. But as soon as I started singing, I said, ‘I have to just get swept away by the crowd’.”
The ‘Queen of afrobeats’, as she is fondly called, also described the British Queen Consort, Camilla, as “very lovely” during the show.
Tiwa Savage and the Queen Consort met before her historic performance at the coronation ceremony.
