Tiwa Savage live at Brixton’s O2 Academy
Taking the stage at Brixton’s O2 Academy Tiwa Savage put on what can only be described as a high-energy, electrifying performance as she closed out her Water and Garri tour.
The two-hour set show was not only live streamed on Airtel TV in Nigeria but captured the energy of everybody in attendance from start to finish.
Two years after the release of her last studio album Celia and a year after her EP Water and Garri. This show marked Tiwa’s first solo show since her O2 Indigo performance in 2018 where she was the first African female artist to sell out the venue. 4 years later she sold out The Brixton O2 Academy with another show that was one not to be missed.
From the beginning of the show when she took the stage she once again proved why she is undoubtedly the Queen of Afrobeats from her stage presence to her incredible set list, the lineup of guests that took the stage with her. it was truly going out with a bang. Concluding the tour that has seen Tiwa taking stages in Nigeria before heading to North America and coming to London.
This was a somewhat homecoming show for Tiwa who studied in London before relocating back to Nigeria and has had a very strong fanbase here throughout her career that was very apparent with the energy throughout the entire night.
One moment of the show which displayed her star power was the number of special guests she had to take the stage these included Amaarae, Uncle Waffles Shaybo, Drakoo, and WSTRN, giving each of them their time to shine. She took the audience through her fan favourites like Ma Lo, 44:99, and All Over, including the Brandy featured single Somebody’s Son and her latest release Jaiye Foreign.
Being front and centre capturing Tiwa in action for a full two hours of non-stop good vibes, stunning outfits and a crowd like no other, the end of the night saw me shattered and yet so energised, ready for whenever the next Tiwa Savage show is.
