Tiwa Savage – WaterAndGarri EP is another album from the original mama jamo of the industry.
Tiwa Savage is one of the biggest pop stars to emerge from West Africa during the 2010s, with numerous hits and international awards to her name. Initially active in the music business as a backing singer and songwriter, she arrived in the early 2010s with a hybrid form of dance-pop that synthesizes Afro-pop, reggae, and contemporary R&B, singing in English and Yoruba. Already a major success by the time her debut Once Upon a Time arrived in 2013, she continued releasing hits throughout the following decade and expanded her global reach, performing at international festivals and venues, and appearing on the 2019 soundtrack The Lion King: The Gift. With releases like 2020’s Celia, her sound grew to incorporate vintage Afro-beat influences, while her lyrics became more socially conscious and female-empowering.

Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, Tiwatope Savage moved with her family to England when she was 11 years old. During the latter half of the ’90s, she established herself as a background vocalist and opted to leave the accounting world when she was sought by Mary J. Blige. Though she had a business administration degree from Kent University, she furthered her music career by attending Berklee College of Music on scholarship. Before her graduation, she competed on The X Factor (U.K.) during series three and made it to the final 24. During the next couple of years, Savage raised her stock with additional background work, such as an appearance on Whitney Houston‘s I Look to You (2009); and the landing of songwriting credits on a handful of albums, including Fantasia‘s Grammy-nominated Back to Me.
