Nigerian music diva Tiwa Savage finally dropped her first single for the year and as promised, it blew the minds of everyone. The project titled “49-99” was first perceived as an album but was actually a single.
However, the star on an interview on Beats1official with Oldmanebro explained the idea behind her song. She said “its a phrase coined by Fela Kuti who is the Godfather of afrobeats”. She further said, “it’s a bus, a transit bus in Nigeria called moluwe…”
Tiwa Savage further explained that “it is a reflection in Nigeria where the rich are getting richer and the poor getting poorer”.
The music sensation has been having an amazing year with numerous collaborations and endorsements. Nevertheless, her “49-99” project is a well-planned work used to deliver a message to her fans, Nigeria as well as African as a whole.
