After she joined a trending lip-sync TikTok video, Afrobeat singing sensation Tiwa Savage received impressive responses online. Like many others, Tiwa Savage joined the craze around Yoruba cinema stars Wumi Toriola and Kiki Bakare. The sound is a sample from a Yoruba movie in which the actors depict a couple who playfully curse at one another.
In the video, Tiwa Savage played the part of Wumi Toriola, and her performance left people in awe. Many were delighted to see Tiwa lip-sync the Yoruba language with such ease and praised her for doing so.
Fresh off performing at the King of England’s coronation ceremony and lamenting the need for a private jet, Tiwa appears on two new jams today. The “Dangerous Love” singer was tapped by Dangbana himself, Bella Shmurda, for a new joint single titled “NSV,” and it is a nonstop vibe. Similarly, Tiwa shows up on a new remake of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ iconic “Waiting in Vain.”
In the remix, Bob Marley and Tiwa Savage scream for their lovers as they wait impatiently for their arrival; the misery in their voices conveys both a need for and a desire for a reunion. Meanwhile, Tiwa Savage continues to be a powerful force in the African music scene, dominating the charts domestically and internationally.
