On September 4, 2019, Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage held a listening party for her new single, ‘4999’ in London, England.
The singer whose new single, ‘4999’ will be released at 4:00pm later today, September 5, 2019 has given a shout-out to her fellow African female artists.
This came after a member of the audience asked her that, “My question is, (since) you’re a huge inspiration for Nigerians and Africans as well… After you, who will you do a collaboration with then? In Nigeria, Africa, who do you think is on that path?”
The Universal Music artist replied that, “Oh man, there’s many many queen, man. Come on, like Yemi Alade just dropped an incredible body of work, huge shout-out to her. Errrm, who doesn’t like Teni The Entertainer? Like, she’s incredible. Simi, Niniola, Waje, Omawumi…”
“We even have Vanessa Mdee from the east, we have Becca whom I have done records with as well. And even the females from the UK, like you have Tomi… There’s so many… Lola Rae…”
After she had given the shout-outs, she then charged women to fight because men can be difficult to deal with. She says, “(To keep doing it big) We just need to fight.”
She then joked that, “You men are just ruling us, ah… Agbara yin po (Your powers are you much). African men are stubborn. (Laughs)”
I refuse to watch the barbaric butchering of my people in SA. This is SICK. For this reason I will NOT be performing at the upcoming DSTV delicious Festival in Johannesburg on the 21st of September. My prayers are with all the victims and families affected by this.
