Tiwa Savage Describes The Kind Of Actor She Desires To Work With

Nigerian Afrobeats musician and actress, Tiwa Savage, tolerates getting messy on set with only “hot” co-actors.

The musician, who starred in the Prime Video original, Water and Garri, stated in a recent interview with CNN that she would prefer not to share a kissing scene with someone who is not “hot.” When Savage was asked if there was one actor in particular that she was looking forward to working with during an interview with Larry Madowo on CNN African Voices, she replied that she hadn’t considered anyone.

The singer declared that it would be terrible to have a kissing scene with someone who isn’t attractive, as the sequence would be done repeatedly on the set. She was also specific on the co-actor having a good breath.

This interview follows the recent success of Water and Garri, which premiered on Prime Video on May 10, 2024. In 14 countries—Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Benin Republic, Rwanda, Togo, Georgia, Zambia, Cyprus, Uganda, Ukraine, Tanzania, Qatar, and South Africa—it reached the top 10 on Prime Video after its debut.

Savage plays Aisha, a driven fashion designer who, after spending years abroad in the US, returns to her hometown in the movie. When she returns home after the death of a family member, she finds that everything has changed dramatically. There was so much tension and violence in the place she used to call home.
