Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage clarifies one of her hit singles, ‘Somebody’s Son,’ which was mistaken for a secular song.
The song since its release has been widely associated with a relationship song, particularly by women looking for a partner.
Tiwa Savage confirmed in a recent interview that, contrary to common belief, the song was inspired by and dedicated to Jesus Christ
“WHEN I WROTE THIS SONG (SOMEBODY’S SON) A LOT OF PEOPLE TOLD ME IT WASN’T GOING TO BE A HIT BECAUSE ONLY FEMALES WOULD SING ALONG TO IT. MEN WON’T BE ABLE TO SING SOMEBODY’S SON.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I TOLD THEM? WHEN I WROTE THIS SONG, I WAS NOT EVEN THINKING ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP, I WAS THINKING ABOUT JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE HE IS THE REAL SOMEBODY’S SON.
SO I SAID TO THEM WHETHER YOU ARE A MAN OR WOMAN, PEOPLE WILL MOVE TO THIS SONG BECAUSE WE ALL NEED SOMEBODY’S SON,” SHE STATED.
