Nigerian musician, Tiwa Savage’s “Celia” has been selected among the top ten albums in 2020 album by Time Magazine.
Describing the album, Time Magazine said “the latest album from Savage, a Nigerian singer-songwriter who many call the ‘Queen of Afrobeats,’ is characterised by an infectious buoyancy.”
“A veteran of the American, British and Nigerian music industries, Savage has an innate understanding of how various strains of music from the Black diaspora fit together, so R&B, rap, Afrobeats, and global pop coalesce seamlessly on the record.
“Savage’s featherweight and precise voice, flips fluidly between English and Yoruba, while bright horn sections drift in and out.
“She also shows off an alluring chemistry with an array of artists, from Sam Smith to Davido to Naira Marley.
“Their inspired contributions make CELIA” a Nigerian standout in a year of creative excellence from the country, with other releases coming from Burna Boy, Davido, Fireboy DML, Olamide and Wizkid.”
Tiwa released Celia in August. She featured musicians such as Sam Smith, Naira Marley, Stefflon Don, Dice Aisles and Hamza.
