Nigerian Celebrity singer and songwriter, Tiwatope Savage, popularly known as Tiwa Savage has spoken on her forthcoming album and what the audience should expect, she made this known in an interview with the BBC when asked what should be expected of the album titled “Celia”. Tiwa explained that the album covers a whole lot of feelings and what the African woman goes through, what she is made of. Speaking with the BBC when asked, what should be expected, the 40 year old singer said she might have to go butt naked in her next video to beat her previous project.
“I might just have to go butt naked in my next video because I don’t know what else I’m going to have to do to top that one!.”
“And, just to put it out there, this was done in Nigeria. All the cast is Nigerian, the director, the AP, everybody is Nigerian.
“I love the fact that I could present this to the label and say this was done in Africa by Africans, this is what we can do. Imagine when you invest in us even more, you would get amazing work.”
Speaking about the forthcoming project, Tiwa said the album encapsulates a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through.
“We’re going through this pandemic, so the idea was I want to let them know that I’m still a boss, that I’m still beautiful, that I’m still African.
“People have been really really creative with it which is amazing. The album is a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through: love, aspiration, being bossy, being sexy, being vulnerable” she said.
Speaking further, the actress asserted that the pandemic in the world has opened her eyes to a lot of things people are going through, she illustrated that they have food, blessed to be at home and how some people can’t because they are daily earners and can only afford a day’s food.
In her words, she said “all of that is what I think the modern African woman is, and that’s what I wanted to portray. It’s really touched my heart to see that people are having a hard time during this. I mean we’re blessed to be at home, we have light, we can pile up food for months if we want to.
“But there are some people who can’t, people who only have money for today or food for today. So this pandemic has really opened my heart to the real situation of where the world is right now.”
