People's reactions are...mixed

By Jide OkonjoPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage yesterday revealed that her eye sight has gotten worse over the last three years and the reactions she's been getting have been very...mixed.

In case you don't know, Tiwa Savage wears circle lens a lot. It's why if you've noticed, in the last couple of years, her eyes have looked bigger in pictures and videos.

Now, circle lens have been in existence for a while now and a lot of people have used them as fashion trends, but now, because of Tiwa's vision problem, a number of people are blaming this lens and old age for her bad vision, even though Tiwa didn't say specifically that either are the cause. Here's what Tiwa said, and here are the reactions.

Speaking about her bad vision and need for glasses now, Tiwa Savage said in an Instagram story:

TIWA SAVAGE: So guys the last two or three years, I have been noticing that I will be squinting sometimes and when I read some stuff, it would be getting blurry. And in the last few months, I noticed it got really bad that sometimes I will have to screen grab a message and then I would now have to go back into my camera roll and zoom. So when I was in London, I was like let me go and see the optician and now [I have to wear glasses].

So my long sight is okay for now, he said, not great; but my short sight [shakes her head]. Literally, I will be in a restaurant and sometimes, I won’t be able to read the menu. But now [after the glasses], your girl is back and you know I had to make it luxury so I had to get me a Cartier pair because ABG don’t play. But guys, do I still look sexy?

Reacting to the news online, people had a lot of thoughts:

Some people blamed her age saying: "Welcome to your 40s", "These are normal age related problems", others blamed her eating habits saying "Adding sugar to your amala, welcome to bad eyesight", while others blamed her bigger eyes from the circle lens saying "why she go enlarge her eye?", "when she doesn't want eyes like a normal human why won't her vision go bad", amidst many other comments.
