Our woman crush for today is the chocolate skinned beau and multiple-time award winner Tiwa Savage, the queen of Afropop.
Tiwa Savage has released 3 studio albums and has won several awards and earned multiple international nominations. She is signed to Don Jazzy’s Mavin records since 2012, she is the first lady of the group and through her record deal she has gained international attention courtesy of her voice, power and charisma.
Prior to her international fame, she grew up in the United states and United Kingdom where she interned and worked with several superstars.
She did a backup for “careless whisper” singer George Michael when she was just 16, she would go on to further work with other American musical elites such as Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson. To add to her resume, she performed on stage with Sting, 50 Cent, Eminem, Robbie Williams, Destiny’s Child, to name a few her affiliates.
