Nigerian born and London based Tiwa Savage aka Tiwatope Savage-Balogunhas released a visual for “Sugarcane,” a smooth track off her chart-topping “Sugarcane” EP released this past fall. Smooth riffs between English and Yoruba in a song that exudes the sensual, sunny Afropop vibes and the visual supporting is nothing but a visual treat.
Savage may not yet be widely popular in the United States, through she’s created a high profile among global music enthusiasts through infectious music, artful visuals and head-turning style.
A graduate of Boston’s Berklee College Music, Savage has been signed to a songwriting deal with Sony Music/ATV since 2012 and has written for for Babyface, Fantasia Barrino, Monica and Mýa.
In October 2016, Savage signed a management deal with Roc Nation, a move that means we’re likely to see her U.S. public profile rise.
