Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage appeared in the December issue of the British Vogue.

Tiwa, who recently became the first African woman to win the Best African Act on MTV EMA, described her musical journey as an artist in Africa.

Fans of "Lova Lova" shared the news on Friday in a series of posts on her page on Instagram @ tiwasavage.

She said: "I just felt yesterday to encourage someone and me not to fit the world's standard of beauty.

"Today I published the British number Vogue December with me, God definitely has a sense of humor. British Vogue … Wow," wrote Tiwa.

In the film, she told about the challenges she faces as a female Afropop singer and on the way to shape her distinctive sound.

Tiwa stated that she had to return to Nigeria to continue the music, when she discovered that while the industry was growing, there were no women doing it on a par with men.

The excerpt of the film quotes her: "In everything I do – regardless of whether she uses my mother tongue or African rhythm – I can tell you something that I am an African.

"Against all advice – everyone was there, no one wants to listen to African music, I came back to Nigeria" – said Tiwa.

Tiwa began to create her own sound using a combination of RnB and traditional Afrobeat, which won her global recognition.

She signed a contract with Mavin Records in 2012 and currently has a contract with Sony / ATV Music Publishing.

The mother of one of them also signed a management and publication agreement with Roc Nation in June 2016.

This is not the first time Tiwa appears in the Vogue magazine. In February, she was listed as one of 10 people who influenced fashion on Instagram.

Then, in August, during the premiere of her pop-up shop, she talked to the magazine about the steps she took to break the stereotypes around Afrpbeats.
