Tiwa Savage covers March 2021 issue of Glamour Magazine

Nigerian artiste, Tiwa Savage is the cover star for the March 2021 issue of Glamour Magazine South Africa.

The 2021 MTV Africa Music Awards nominee talks to the publication about growing up in Lagos, moving to London and #EndSARS.

Her recent album ‘Celia’ has racked over 200 million streams. The project was named by Time Magazine as one of its top 10 albums released in 2020.

Early this year, Savage nabbed a nomination at the 2021 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Awards.

She is also featured on ‘Rhythms of Zamunda‘ – an album inspired by upcoming American comedy film ‘Coming 2 America.’

Savage was born in Isale Eko. She relocated to London at the age of 11 for her secondary education. Five years later, she began her music career doing backup vocals for artists such as George Michael and Mary J. Blige. After participating in the UK edition of The X Factor and graduating from Berklee College of Music, Savage signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing in 2009.

Inspired by the growth of the Nigerian music industry, Savage moved back to Nigeria and signed with Mavin Records in 2012. She made an appearance on the label’s 2012 compilation album Solar Plexus.
