Celebrity music star, Tiwa Savage, some weeks back had claimed that she was being blackmailed with a sex tape her partner had uploaded on Snapchat mistakenly. In an interview she granted a foreign medium, Tiwa had stated that she would not be paying her blackmailer because this would definitely lead to more payments.
However, weeks after she vowed never to give in to the blackmailer, an unknown blogger who Tiwa called out on Instastory, released the sex tape, as a way of getting at Tiwa, because of how she handled the whole situation, according to the “Koroba” crooner.
However, barely few hours after the release of the sex tape, the internet went agog, with several celebrities either pitching tents with Tiwa, or out rightly calling her out. Here are some of the reactions of some celebrities..

According to the reality TV star, the problem with the tape is not with the victim but with the person who revealed it.
Angel wrote, “The problem will never be the fact that someone made a tape or that someone took a picture n*ked, the problem will always lie with the person that decided to leak it. Stop victim-blaming. And leaking someone’s tape is a criminal offense. I hope one of you becomes a scapegoat.”
Teebillz: After Tiwa’s tape was released late on Tuesday, Teebillz took to his Instastory to state that someone who has your best interests at heart is different from a person around you, indirectly implying that Tiwa was betrayed by someone she trusted.

The movie star, who took to her Instagram page to share her opinion in a video, stated that no man who loves his partner would pick up a camera to record her most intimate and secret aspect of her being.
“Dearest, Black and beautiful woman, Be careful. Don’t trade bedroom intimacy for online gratification. I’m not bothered. I’m not perturbed. I don’t care. Remember, someday, we will all grow old and grey, and our children and grandchildren will love to take pride in us. Live well,” she said
