Tiwa Savage reveals she once lived in a shelter for the poor in New York .

Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, has narrated that she once lived from hand to mouth in a shelter meant for poor people with drug addiction-related issues in New York because she had little or no money. 

The music star revealed this during a surprise party just for 20 guests organised by her friends to celebrate her latest album Celia. 
In an emotional laden voice, while appreciating her friend Elizabeth Elohor of Beth Model, Tiwa said she was 22 when she was living at the shelter. She explained how difficult it was for her meeting her needs because she could not work as an international student. Due to her inability to work and augment whatever she was getting from home, that made her settle for Bedford–Stuyvesant better known as Bed-Stuy, which is a project dedicated to poor people with drug-related issues in New York. 
Recalling how former beauty queen, Elizabeth Elohor, came to her aid. Tiwa said they had gone out for lunch and because she had no money to buy food, she had ordered for appetizers instead of food. Elohor then asked if she was not hungry which she replied in the affirmative and when she insisted, she said she burst into tears telling her she had no money to buy herself a decent meal even though she was hungry. 
The Koroba singer said a shocked Elohor ordered food for her to eat and also take home. And as an appreciative person that she is. Tiwa said the first time her photo appeared in Times Square, her friend in her time of need was the first person she called to share in her moment of joy.
