It’s a common thing among the Yoruba ethnic group for younger ones to prostrate for an elder while greeting them.
This singular gesture is seen as a sign of respect, but when a photo of an A-list celebrity seen kneeling down to greet another music icon, goes public then it is, of course, a big deal.
Apparently, Tiwa Savage was attending an occasion in Lagos with some other celebrities before she spotted Sir Shina Peters. We all know how highly Sir Shina Peters is seen in the entertainment industry for his immerse impact and so it didn’t come as a surprise for Tiwa Savage to acknowledge him, she knelt down immediately to greet him. 😍
Very few times have we spotted celebrities go flat on the floor or kneel down to greet some highly respected people in the society. We’ve seen Wizkid prostrate to greet King Sunny Adeand we can’t forget the time Davido went flat on the floor to greet the Ooni Of Ife.
