Although the photo was met with mixed reactions from fans, Sir Shina Peters says he appreciates Tiwa’s gesture adding that she will be celebrated by generations after her for showing him respect.
He said, “This is what I always preach. Tiwa Savage showed that she is very humble and respectful and that is how it is supposed to be. When I meet people who are older than me, I also bow before them. I wasn’t surprised she did what she did. Whenever we meet at concerts or shows, that is how she greets me. In life, whatever you do, you will reap it later. Her children and people who came after her will celebrate and respect her too.”
The ace musician also added that other celebrities like Teni, Tonto Dikeh and BBNaija’s CeeC also knelt to greet him.
He said, “I am enjoying now because of what I have done in the past and I will continue to pray for all them for showing me respect. When some of these younger ones make money, they lack respect.
“I don’t demand anyone to kneel down for me, but if you feel I deserve it, I am okay with it. I do that to people too and it is part of our culture. If you look at the photo well, you will see that I quickly lifted her up. I was also not comfortable with keeping her on the ground for too long.”
