[Album] Tiwa Savage – “Celia” 3

One of the most anticipated album of 2020 “Celia” from Tiwa Savage is finally Out!!!

Nigerian-born singer, songwriter and fashion icon TIWA SAVAGE – widely regarded as the ‘Queen of Afrobeats’ releases her third studio album “CELIA“. The album is now live after the release of three singles; ‘Dangerous Love‘, ‘Koroba‘ and ‘Temptation‘ featuring British singer Sam Smith. All singles are currently on top music charts and buzzing on different digital playlists.

Savage’s fearlessness in combining various genres has paid off, earning her abundance of award wins and recognitions. In 2018 she made history by becoming the first female to win the MTV European Award for ‘Best African Act’. She has since earned four Channel O Music Video Awards nominations, five World Music Award nominations, MTV Africa Music, BET & MOBO Award nominations and many more.

In 2019 she signed an exclusive recording contract with Universal Records and in September released her first global single titled ’49-99’ under Motown Records. In May, 2020, Tiwa Savage graced the cover of Billboard Magazine’s first issue devoted entirely to Africa alongside Afrobeat superstars Davido and Mr Eazi. Tiwa was born in Lagos, Nigeria, where she lived until the age of 11 when her parents decided to move to London. In her early days, like most families, she would attend church with her parents and soon developed a love for performing and relocated to London. At the age of 16, Tiwa found herself singing backing vocals for George Michael. As a result of that session, Tiwa quickly found further work over the years with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Emma Bunton and Blu Cantrell.

Despite having already completed a degree in Business Administration at the University of Kent, she was focused to continue pursuing music and received a scholarship at the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. With her newfound strength to push forward with music, Tiwa moved from London to New York City and began taking meetings with various producers and industry professionals. Inspired and stimulated by the lack of true female superstars in her home country, she moved back to Nigeria.

Showing the Music Queen and Africa’s Bad Girl that she is Tiwa serves us with a complete body of work titled “Celia” The album. This the third album in her music career a follow up to the second- R.E.D and her debut music project – ‘Once Upon A Time‘. CELIA houses 12 tracks with features from Music A-listers; Sam Smith, Davido, Stefflon Don, Naira Marley, Dice Ailes and Hamzaa. And a Bonus 13 track- Celia song’s.

On her third studio album Celia, Tiwa Savage deftly infuses Afrobeats with a feminine impulse, rhythmically exploring the many facets of womanhood. “Celia is my mum’s name and I wanted to pay homage to her,” Tiwa tells Apple Music. “She embodies everything that this album is. It speaks to a strong, modern African woman. This album is Afrobeats from a very female perspective. It’s an extension of the African woman: she still values her culture and her upbringing, but she’s also well-travelled, so it’s blending those two worlds. I want every woman that listens to this to feel attached and connect to it.”

Tiwa delivered a complete package of sounds… Listen and Enjoy below
