Tiwa Savage, a Nigerian singer, has received an honorary degree from her alma mater, the University of Kent in the United Kingdom.
Congratulations, African queen!
Jay Z’s Made in America Festival featured Savage on the Liberty Stage. During her performance, she invited Young Paris to perform “Best of Me” (Remix). On September 22, 2017, Savage released her debut EP Sugarcane. It includes collaborations with Wizkid, Spellz, Baby Fresh, Maleek Berry, and P2J, among others.
It is about love and was recorded in both English and Yoruba. At the 2018 Nigeria Entertainment Awards, Sugarcane was nominated for Best Album of the Year. Savage told The Fader magazine that she had no plans to release the EP, but decided to do so after producing so much music for her future album. Sugarcane’s music is a fusion of Afropop, funk, and house.
