As fans and well wishers continued to pray for Eedris AbdulKareem, Tiwa Savage, Nigerian singer and songwriter, lightened up the mood when she gave her fans more than they asked for, as she was seen in a video wearing a bare-bottomed outfit to an after-party.
The 42-year-old singer had the internet buzzing on Monday when she stepped out in the revealing dress for an after-party to celebrate her sold-out show in London.
As some fans bashed the “African Bad Girl” for what they described as inappropriate, some applauded her for reminding her fans that she is into “Showbiz” and not another profession.
On Tuesday, actress Eniola Badmus came all out for the gram when she was spotted in a viral video spraying money on Nigerian singer, Davido, who was overwhelmed.
As some fans talked about the amount of money she sprayed and how she had always been a fan, friend and supporter of Davido, some could not help but assess her size which had clearly gone through a lot of transformation.
Badmus recently shared her transformation pictures which she captioned “wasn’t an easy journey. Oju ri tooo (eyes have seen enough).”
While some fans praised the actress for her transformation, some advised her to keep her weight and not let negative comments get to her.

The spokesperson of the Police Command in Lagos State, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, in reaction to the incident said BNXN would be penalised if found wanting and same would apply to the policemen in the video.
