Award-winning singer Tiwa Savage said she attempted suicide twice as a kid in London.
She 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.
Savage revealed 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.”
