Her involvement in the campaign will raise important awareness that will help ensure the outbreak is stopped."

Tiwa Savage also spoke about her role in eradicating polio:

This is a cause that hits close to home for me, not only as a mother of a small child but as a proud Nigerian, whose country has been battling this disease for many years,” she said.

According to Pulse New, Tiwa Savage has now joined the likes of Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; actress Kristen Bell; Supermodel Isabeli Fontana; Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu; action movie star Jackie Chan; boxing great Manny Pacquiao; pop star Psy and others in Rotary’s public awareness campaign.
