Nigerians are still reacting to Tiwa Savage’s marriage scandal as social media is still buzzing with more tales and conspiracy theories.
Azuka Ogujuiba, a ThisDay senior reporter and former editor with its Style magazine who did the interview with Tiwa Savage in response to her husband’s allegations has not been left out.
She has been described by many on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as “aloof”, “detached”, “razz”, “lacking in empathy”, “the spokesperson for Nigerian patriarchy”, even “disgraceful”.
Some even felt PulseNG would have done a better job in picking a suitable interviewer, even though YNaija r spots that she wasn’t doing the interview for PulseNG.
A source who spoke anonymously said:
“This was not a Pulse interview at all o. Azuka had a pending interview with Tiwa for about a month, but Tiwa had not found time to do the interview. So immediately this Teebillz wahala broke, Azuka went to Tiwa and said ‘oya let’s do the interview.” “She met this Pulse guys there,”
“They had basically just camped at Tiwa’s house begging her for an exclusive. When Tiwa decided to give her interview to Azuka, they begged Azuka for the rights to just record the interview with her.”
“Azuka is not a TV presenter, she didn’t prepare to do a TV interview, she just came there to do her own work, and so she won’t be accused of being selfish and not helping a colleague, she allowed Pulse to record on camera, while Tiwa got ready. That’s how the whole world is killing her for being a bad TV presenter.”
Despite the criticisms, the reporter Azuka Ogujuiba has not responded. The source disclosed that..
“She evidently thought it was best to act detached in the interview since she is close to Tiwa and that backfired”.
“I believe it’s best for her to speak out in public and clear the air, but Azuka no dey hear word. Knowing her, she doesn’t give a damn.”
