    Congrats to Tiwa. That’s Sean Puffy Combs Fat Joe is talking about being a traitor…That’s P Diddy for you. He would sell his child to get out of trouble.

    I hate when they do that “African Rihanna” or “African Beyonce” or “African Madonna” thing.Tiwa is African Tiwa nothing more nothing less. It’s really not a compliment to describe our stars as a version of one American star.

      @jess and co, while I understand the sentiment, the description is merely a referential point to the (often relatively uninformed) American audience. It’s not necessarily descriptive of Tiwa’s music but of her status to those Americans who (if we are being frank) have barely heard of her.

      Thank you. Someone gets it. True talent is when you are in your own league. For example when you listen to Fela kuti, you can only say he’s inspired by James Brown not say he’s the james brown of Africa. Same for 2face, even Yemi Alade(she’s very talented and unique.

      …and it took Fela Kuti 20 years after his death for the great music that he made more than 40 years ago (in the 1970s) to go mainstream globally.

    Abeg make e shift to one side, Tiwa Savage is no African Rihanna, Tiwa is Tiwa. Complement the babe for her hardwork and talent and not talk o.p, all these american entertainers sef, always feel too much of themselves. I dnt know why they always see we Africans as being inferior to them. AfricanMichaeljackson, African50cents AfricanRihanna Africandis, Why isnt there an AmericanFela?, rubbish!

      Thank you. They place themselves so highly thinking everyone worships them.

      Tiwa seems more of a copycat, emulating American artists in her dressing and Art. Majority of Nigerian artists are nothing to rave about. Lyrics, videos content lacks unique creativity and innovation.

    What da hell is ‘african rihanna’? Her name is Tiwa Savage. end of! We don’t need a Rihanna or Beyonce in Africa. Our artists are themselves & perfect in their own right & doing their thing & we are proud of them as they are. We don’t need your comparisons neither do we worship celebs like deities. Go away please. *irritated today*

    Rihanna and Tiwa should not be mentioned in the same sentence. If it was Tiwa that was brutalized by chris brown they would still be together. Tiwa looking apologetic and as if she’s just managing while Chris Brown with his non-quarter past three eyes would be feeling macho and waving his d*** around. Tiwa should just be described as African Tiwa. End of!

    He said African Rihanna to give his audience an idea of the level she’s on and what they can relate her to. We always get irritated when foreigners think we are inferior. But looking at our systems and the underdevelopment even in the entertainment system, if you were foreign, wouldn’t you consider us inferior?

    Hmmm, so we’ve downgraded from African Beyonce to African Rihanna. Up next African Rita Ora

    She is Africa’s Tiwa…… she is not some Rhianna wannabe. She can be better than her.
