Tiwa Savage makes the List of BBC’s 100 most Inspirational and Influential Women of 2017

The music songbird shared the information with a lot of excitement on her Instagram page earlier today.

She wrote, ”OMG OMG OMG this is incredible… BBC unveiled their list of 100 inspirational and innovative women of 2017 and I made the list… The list includes NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson and President Michelle Bachelet of Chile. It’s true when they say your brightest moments usually comes after your darkest times. Keep your head up and work hard through it. The same people laughing at you will celebrate you. Don’t let being a woman hinder you, I have and still have to fight to get to people to respect and to appreciate my work and not limit me because I am female so this really encourages me to keep pushing and breaking boundaries. Put God first, enjoy your life, love, be a good human and do what makes you happy. Don’t let anything hold you back because you are a mother, wife, young, older or a female ”YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE A FOOTPRINT THAT WILL LAST IF YOU ARE ALWAYS WORKING ON TIPTOES” Laymar Gbowee”. 

The 37 year old Singer is also a songwriter and philanthropist and an integral member of the Afrobeats scene and plans to open a music school.

Tiwa Savage who experienced dark times in the past because of alleged marital problems is happy to walk the way of other great women as her efforts have been recognized in the World circle.

Those that made the list this year, will be part of the 100 Women Challenge, tackling some of the biggest problems facing women around the world.

Coming together in four teams, the women will share their experiences and create innovative ways to tackle:

  • The glass ceiling – #Teamlead
  • Female illiteracy – #Teamread
  • Street harassment – #Teamgo
  • Sexism in sport – #Teamplay

According to BBC News,  You might notice something different this year; there are still 40 spaces to be filled. As the season progresses, more women who have taken up the Challenge in some way will be added to the list.

Mummy Jam Jam, congratulations on this one.
