I am not the Queen of Afro-beat – Tiwa Savage
Nigerian songstress, Tiwatope Savage, popularly known as Tiwa Savage, has declared that she is not the queen of Afro-beat, saying “ It will be unfair to place that title on just one person as every other artiste is working hard to be the best at what they do.”
This is coming after the release of her Fela inspired, Afro-beat single, 49-99, as fans across the various social media affirmed that the Queen of Afro-beat has finally emerged in the person of Tiwa Savage.
When asked if she has ever been on a Molue bus, as her song 49-99 projects and if she sees herself doing politics in the future,
The mother of one said: “Politics is not my calling, so I’ll leave it to those that God has called to do it. As for the Molue bus, I have not been on one to be honest”.
She said, she spent most of her youth in the UK but she still think that just because she have not entered Molue, does not mean she can not empathize with people that have gone through it. she can not pretend like such experience or does not exist.
The song is to shed more light on those that go through this everyday. But she can not be a politician.
