The Nigerian superstar’s name was recently cited gracing a street in Lekki Phase 1.
This is a huge deal because not every artistes in the industry gets a street named after them.
Tiwa Savage would be another popularly Nigerian contemporary hip hip artistes after 2Baba and AY Makun who was named after their streets in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, Nigeria.
According to 2Baba, Tiwa Savage Street is just after his own which is to say that these street were named because the artistes live there.
What does it take to name a street after someone?
From history and how things have worked so far, streets are named after people to celebrate them for all they have achieved in their field or if they have created massive impact in the society. Streets are also named after landmarks or things people generally know them for. Sometimes some wealthy people although can submit their names for review to be considered and some people also believe that the first person to build a house in a given area gets to name the street after them. Some think if you buy the entire land in an area your name could be given to the street or you can file paper works and pay some fees to get that done.
Now these said, we have no clue as to the option with this new achievement for Tiwa Savage other than what we would like to believe which is it being the reward given to the talented artiste for her hard work.
So is this street already on the map?
Well, who hears about a new street and refuses to check the map on Google?
A lot of people because the truth is, some streets are not even on google map… yet, and a street as new as Tiwa Savage might definitely not be seen there for now, so we totally understand and we say a big congratulations to Tiwa for this new badge… keep rising girl!
