It has been a good year so far for Nigeria’s Afro-pop queen, Tiwa Savage. The Afro-pop star who is presently on a row as she proudly graced the New York Fashion Week over the week in style, using the avenue to premiere her latest single, “49-99” at the fashion event.
Tiwa Savage was hosted by a couple of brand partners at the event and she also granted interviews to notable platforms present at the event.
She was introduced to the waiting dignitaries where she expresses her music journey at the Martell Mixer Meeting. Explaining the concept behind her latest song, “49-99”, the singer said she borrowed it from the Afro-beat Legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti‘s popular expression of “49 sitting, 99 standing” – a typical situation in Lagos transport system where passengers scuffle in the popular big yellow buses called “molue”.
For Tiwa Savage, she wants the world to know where she’s coming from, to see her Nigerian story, hence the title of her song.
