Sir Shina Peters has explained why the widely celebrated pop star, Tiwa Savage famously knelt down to greet him recently.
It will be recalled that Tiwa Savage was recently pictured on her knees greeting Sir Shina Peters at an event and it generated mixed reactions.
However, while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Sir Shina Peters said Tiwa Savage did the right thing and he appreciated her gesture towards him.
“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.”
According to the veteran musician, he also met Tonto Dikeh, Teni and BBNaija’s Cee-C, saying they all knelt down to greet him.
“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.”
