#SaxAppeal5: India Arie is Having A Great Time at Her First Live Performance in Nigeria – Says Simi’s Love Don’t Care is “My Jam”



India Arie Sax Appeal 3

This is India Arie‘s first time in Nigeria and she is performing th live JAzz & Soul music concert Sax Appeal 5 taking place at Eko Hotels and Suites.

As part of her musical sets, she performed Tiwa Savage‘s “If I start to Talk” and Simi‘s ‘Love Don’t Care’. We still can’t decide if we prefer her version to the original songs.

Watch some of her performances here…

    Kudos to India Arie for a subtle tribute to Nigerian music. But to the organisers, why not put the money, or at least a part of it, into the gifted hands of the Nigerian artists who actually created the songs she covered? I don’t see why not.
