Popular African hip-hop singer Tiwa Savage‘s latest album “Celia” has been listed among Time’s 10 best albums of 2020. She put in the work and it’s definitely paying off.
Oyogist.com gathered a post according to Time magazine reacting to the album that;
“The latest album from Savage, a Nigerian singer-songwriter who many call the “Queen of Afrobeats,” is characterized by an infectious buoyancy. A veteran of the American, British and Nigerian music industries, Savage has an innate understanding of how various strains of music from the Black diaspora fit together, so R&B, rap, Afrobeats, and global pop coalesce seamlessly on the record. Savage’s featherweight and precise voice flips fluidly between English and Yoruba, while bright horn sections drift in and out. She also shows off an alluring chemistry with an array of artists, from Sam Smith to Davido to Naira Marley. Their inspired contributions make Celia a Nigerian standout in a year of creative excellence from the country, with other releases coming from Burna Boy, Davido, Fireboy DML, Olamide and Wizkid.”
Tiwa Savage has gone on her official twitter handle to show her appreciation to God for giving her that kind of privilege. In her expression, she said;
” I doubted many things but one thing I knew for sure was what a beautiful body of work myself and everyone involved created. We created MAGIC.Luke 4 16-30 “Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honour””.
