Nigeria award-winning singer, Tiwa Savage said she attempted suicide twice as a kid in London.
Savage spoke during her Black Box interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Live Radio.
She attributed the suicide attempt to bullying as a black kid in London.
The talented singer disclosed that she moved to London with her mother at the age of 10 during which classmates mocked her strong Nigerian accent.
According to her: “I was teased so bad. They used to call me ‘African girl’, ‘Foo foo’, ‘Your food smells’ and so on.
“It was terrible. It was so bad that I literally tried to kill myself two times. I was really depressed.”
