      I applaud them for their efforts and all but I do agree with you. No coordination and the same routines concert after concert!

      Concerts are a very big source of their income, irrespective of how well they perform

    Great piece. Those two have always given me one more reason to love Nigeria. Meanwhile, please edit the story to correct the name of the show. It is African Unplugged – not ‘African Unplugged.’ Thumbs up to the Bellanaija team

    Lol. Isn’t this quite ironic. Guess I’ve been infected by the BellaNaija bug. It’s Africa Unplugged and not African Unplugged. *Giggling*

    Tiwa the Beyonce wannabeeeeeee
    Beyonce wore this exact costume to perform “Run The World (Girls)” On Oprah’s Farewell Show
    Am sure that is where our dear Tiwa copied the bow tie and Jacket costume. hehehehehehehe
    I will continue to fish out her copycat styles.

      I would hardly call a true observation “scary obsession” that’s dramatic; especially when her research is in fact correct. Lol…

      @Fisa Tiwa’s dancers also wore the same costume as Beyonce’s dancers in the performance. This is what we call detailed COPYCAT.

    Tiwa performing Dorobucci and Eminado without the crews in the song looks unprofessional. and it makes it glaring it’s not a live performance. If you are performing a group song go with your crew and stop disgracing us.

    Too much negativity, every time people sha must look for something to say, sometimes it better to just look and be quite if you have nothing good to say! If its not her hair and makeup, its outfit, ahhhann! sometimes just allow the babe!
    You can’t just be a hater, its bad for your own health!
    Tiwa can’t please everyone, same way “Beyonce” can’t please everyone, even you too you can’t please everyone, but enough with all the negativity, its not every time, its getting old now!

      well, its not negativity.. We are Africans, and when our celebrities who are meant to go out there to represent Nigeria and our blissful culture n tradition, do otherwise it calls for criticism. Imagine what the westerners would say

    Well.. Kudos to them. They are breaking boundaries and paving the way.

    Wow, Nigerian artistes are so lazy!! Lip synching at a live concert??

    • Teejay

      September 17, 2014 at 10:44 am

      @bukky Western Artists have been known to lip synch also, so wats ur point exactly?

    @xoxo, sometimes, criticism is a good way of pushing our stars to do better, that is, constructive criticism, i’m not talking about throwing shade. I love both Tiwa and Davido, but I cant but pick out a few things they could have done differently, especially, since this show is out of the shores of Africa.

    I can scream CREATIVITY, a thousand times, because that is what I think is lacking. How did they appear on the stage? did they appear in a stage enhanced smoke or any other creative appearance? was there an intro-performance? was the background sound low enough for us to hear the performers voices? why didn’t the crew make an appearance and sing the Eminado song with Tiwa, or better still, hire one male to voice over while she does hers and the other lady’s?
    Originality is very important. these two are no longer looking for acceptance, because they already have that. What we look forward to seeing is a “WAOH!!!!” stage performance. they need to own and control the stage, have a high level of stage coordination, costume coordination, sound coordination. it isn’t just about the screaming crowd, what about if the performance is shown on video, will it be so applauded?
    I know our artistes are getting better everyday, but there is still room for improvement.
    Hope I don’t sound harsh, but like I said, constructive criticism helps………

      Thank you. I wonder why people think criticism is bad. If we continue to applaud everything, there will be no need for improvement. They should put more effort into their stage performances. I can as well just listen to their songs on my phone. There should be some level of creativity.

    Does davido ever actually sing? Like, he doesn’t ven make an effort, he won’t even lip sync, at least he should fake it nau

    Hmmmm… Aunty Tiwa, that butt looks to mummyish not firmmm at all. Getting to old to wanna be what your not, performance zero. But atleast you have gone far, don’t misuse the opportunties God has given you.


    September 15, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    Most of these artists do not have great voices. It def shows when they are on stage. I guess we are all mostly crazy about the rhythm more than anything.

    I saw an online picture of the back view of Tiwa in her bodysuit attire.
    Urgent word for Tiwa: Squats!

    September 15, 2014 at 9:58 pm

    Wow! This is so sad. Just from a couple of short Instagram videos you are so quick to criticise. What great thing are you doing with your life besides sitting behind a computer and spewing hate. This is a hard working talented woman who’s a shining example of how a woman can be top in a male dominated industry. Yet all you women can do is be hateful. Such a shame!

    Girlfriend, stick to your African songs which come across as more authentic. Your attempt to sing those Beyonce like song makes you loook ridiculous.
