She was also joined on stage by Dr Sid as the duo performed the hit song, ‘If I Start To Talk’ , with her set also featuring songs like ‘All Over’, ‘Lova Lova’ and ‘Tiwa’s Vibe’ as she paced the stage bare footed to the admiration of her fans who sang along to every song.
This is Tiwa Savage’s first headline event and biggest concert yet outside of Nigeria, as the singer who also opened her pop-up store » the day before the event, continues to push the message of Afrobeats beyond the African continent.
