Tiwa Savage’s ‘Water and Garri’ Extended Play (EP) has attracted the attention of American musician, Pharrell Williams who has shared his opinion about the forthcoming project.
Apparently, the unarguable best female artiste on the African continent had Pharrel listen to the songs ahead of its release. The award-winning American vocalist gave a rave review as he speaks about how much commitment, professionalism, and good musical expertise was infused into the production.
Tiwa shared the moment and wrote; “Had @pharrell listen to my EP WaterAndGarri I made music for the soul and one of my favs just confirmed it @motownrecords @siphodlam I need a date to drop this
The singer opened up on her family, career, and thriving in the male-dominated Nigerian music industry. But of course, the intermittent power supply which nearly overshadowed the interview has become the most conspicuous aspect of the whole interaction.
According to the article, power went out three times at the singer’s location and Tiwa had to apologize to the interviewer who was in Ghana at the time.
The magazine’s write-up stated;
”Tiwa Savage’s electricity went out three times during our video call. “Sorry about the power breakup,” she apologizes each time.
I totally understand as we’re both connecting from West Africa: Savage in Lagos, Nigeria, where she’s been since the pandemic began; me in Accra, Ghana, where I’ve been for the past two months to be with family.
Electricity going out is a regular occurrence in major African cities such as ours. Despite the steady interruptions, Savage’s energy never flags.”
