Appearing on the radio station Power 105.1 in New York on Friday, the Afrobeats star said she is refusing to pay a blackmailer who is threatening to release the video.
“I am not going to call it a sex tape but it’s a tape between me and the person I am dating right now,” she told host Angie Martinez.
The unnamed blackmailer obtained the footage after her lover accidentally posted it on Snapchat. Although he quickly deleted it when he realized his error, it had already been caught by a third party, she said.
Savage said she cried when she was told of the leak on Thursday by her road manager, who was sent the video.
She told Martinez that she would not give in to the blackmailer’s demands, adding that even if she paid up, there was no guarantee they wouldn’t release the footage anyway.
“I’m not gonna have somebody blackmail for doing something that is natural,” she said.
“I don’t want this to overshadow what I have going on,” she added.
She is currently in the US promoting her latest album, “Water and Garri.”
