On Set With Tiwa Savage: Behind the Scenes at the video shoot for “Kele Kele Love”

She created a sensation on the Hip Hop World Awards 2010 Red Carpet and got everyone asking “Who’s That Girl?”.
That girl is Tiwa Savage, singer/singerwriter/rising star.
Tiwa has been on the music scene in the US for years and has written songs for stars including American Idol winner Fantasia. Now she is shifting the spotlight to herself.
She just shot the video for her single “Kele Kele Love” in Los Angeles and here are the photos.
The song is similar in theme to Cassie’s “Unofficial Girl”. Tiwa sings about how she isn’t impressed by a guy’s wealth and questions why he only wants to see her “after hours” and she isn’t interested in being his “undercover lover”.
It’s a different theme from the usual love songs or heartbreak tracks. The video will be released soon.
Check out photos from the video and listen to the song below.

    Hmmm .
    She looked better on theHip Hop World Awards 2010 Red Carpet than what
    these pictures are showing.
    Hopefully the video can make up for these pictures because she
    doesn’t look as good here as she looked on the red carpet.

  • Abi August 5, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Not bad at all …. thumbs up!

  • yaya August 5, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    Tiwa
    Nice looking girl BUT make up is not for you…or better still…reduce the make-up drastically.

    LOVE THE SONG ANYWAY……

  • Nneka August 5, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    I love the song, very catchy!
    Don’t see anything wrong with her makeup here but then again I have never seen her anywhere else so….

  • Mr X August 5, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    cool song.

  • trix August 5, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    Ok there’s only so much i can keep mum about. I have noticed several errors on your website lately. I’m not trying to be too much of a critic! If i’m not mistaken you are suppossedly one of the better Nigerian entertainment websites or something. What ever happened to being professional and actually living up to the persona of being the “better”? I would expect that you have editors(if not, from all indications you need one asap) who actually go through this stuff before it goes up. I always took pride in the fact that you guys did such a wonderful job with entertainment but i also believe that whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well.. Just my 2 cents..

  • Rotimi August 5, 2010 at 7:33 pm

  • There I said it...Rant Over August 5, 2010 at 7:39 pm

  • Luchi August 5, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    YAY! Go Tiwa, you loook so adorable! :)
    Can’t wait for the video to be out. :)

  • jay August 5, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    trix what is really the issue?

  • Lagos Boy August 5, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    Niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee….. I like Kele Kele Loves.:)

  • trix August 5, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    Your typos are just too obvious to miss!

  • Dith-H-P August 5, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Loves this chick! She’s gorge and can actually really sing! And kele kele is my sh*t but ya I must say Tiwa..2much make-up isn’t 4 u. U really don’t need all that much.
    Much love & I wish u all d best!

  • Dith-H-P August 5, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    Not sure what Trix is commenting abt but Bella, whatever happened 2 d follow-up comments tab?

  • B*Rych August 5, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Shouts to my girl Tiwa…’Bout to take this game by storm…!!! Can’t wait to see the video!

  • alika August 5, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Tooooooo Much Make-Up!!!!!! She like the ghost of her former self!!!

  • ij August 5, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Trix enweniwe oh, i’m sure Bella and her team appreciate ur observation
    but u sef will agree that this is not the right forum to be pasting comments
    of this nature especially as it does not relate to Tiwa and her gorgeous self
    An email to her team highlighting ur concerns would have been more
    appropriate.
    (please see the contact tab below for email adds that you could have sent ur
    feedback to)

  • D.O.T.M.H. August 5, 2010 at 11:15 pm

    I see a slight resemblance with Mo Abudu. Haven’t listened to the song yet so can’t comment about that.

  • Me August 5, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    I don’t get why people are complaining about her makeup…IT IS A VIDEO!!!! She’s not walking the streets like that! It most probably compliments the concept of the video. When Beyonce had on “excess” makeup in the video (VIDEO PHONE), I didnt hear Nigerians complaining about that! Jeeez let the girl do her thing! When she does a video that requires less makeup, i’m sure she’ll wear less makeup…just like Beyonce’s minimal makeup in “Broken Hearted Girl” …Peace.

  • Pipiiiihooray! August 5, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    TRIX CARRY YOUR IGNORANT SELF OUT OF THIS BLOG BEFORE I SOUND YOU!! If you notice typos go and do your own blog make I see u. Your tirade just reeks of bad belle and nothing else. Dictionary!

  • Pipiiiihooray! August 6, 2010 at 12:00 am

    And ps bella I as well as a million other ppl love ur website!!Heads up..

  • Just.my.opinion August 6, 2010 at 12:23 am

    The people commenting on her make up obviously have not worked on a video set. You have to put on a lot for the camera. I am sure it will look fab in the actual video. Plus NO ONE can deny that she is beautiful and has a beautiful voice. Tiwa pls keep doing you, you are making us proud, I dont see no other naija female doing it on the level you are. I mean we now have an artist that can truly stand aganst yankee artists

  • wow August 6, 2010 at 4:53 am

    she looked much better on d red carpet o..she just looks plain weird here..maybe its the make up

  • oluchi August 6, 2010 at 5:49 am

    nice song…

  • woli August 6, 2010 at 8:59 am

    Wow this is great….Love Kele Kele and as for the make up critics, just as
    “Just.my.opinion” has highlighted they obiviously know little about video shots,
    but hey not everyone can, but must still say on behalf of Tiwa thanks for the
    comments. Tiwa you go girl this is lovely and will defo hit 9JA BIG IJN.
    1 LOVE

  • Waterlow August 6, 2010 at 9:08 am

    Yay, thumbs up to my girl Tiwa. We love you and are so proud of you. The song is off the hook and you look fab. The sky is not the limit but just the begining.

  • Oddie August 6, 2010 at 11:13 am

  • Nadine August 9, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Tiwa looks phenomenal and has a voice of an angel! With success come haters
    but that’s ok because tiwa is heading straight for the top regardless:)
    Love KELE KELE!
    Keep shining your light!!

  • B-stizzle August 10, 2010 at 4:19 am

    Nice joint, wish she didn’t use all the auto-tuning tho.
    And babe, u look a lot better with your mouth closed!

  • existentialmoi August 10, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Nice to see her pressing on with her craft. She was on the X Factor about 3 years ago and though she didnt make it through to the live finals, she got into the final 7 in her category

  • LondonChic August 15, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Why do Naija’s love to hate so much?? It’s a video shoot for crying out loud. Its all for dramatic effects! Tiwa – you look fab (mouth open or closed) and Kele Kele rocks. You will take 9ja by storm IJN!!!!

  • babygurl August 15, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    Tiwa Savage rocks…love u gurl
