Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Tiwa Savage has caused a stir online following the huge news about her soon-to-be-released first movie.
The mother of one has bagged a deal with Prime Video to release her first movie, Water and Garri, which would be made available in over 240 countries worldwide. Sharing the good news on her Instagram page minutes ago, Tiwa noted how it has been 2 years in the making. She described the project as the most adventurous, and fulfilling things she has done.
Tiwa Savage would play the lead act in this enthralling movie project, which depicts African stories in a more inviting light with the success she has made in the music industry.
The movie which is directed by Meji Alabi and shot in Cape Coast, Ghana, would star Mike Afolarin (Far From Home) and Jemima Osunde (New Money). The movie tells the story of Aisha (Savage), an ambitious fashion designer who returns home after 10 years away in the U.S. but must learn to live with her sc@rs and confront the g¥ilt she left behind.
This is coming amid her beef with colleague and friend, Davido. Tee Billz, the baby daddy of Tiwa, had shed light on the situation when he publicly called out Davido for disrespecting his family, noting how he, Tiwa, and their son, Jamil have shown Davido’s daughter, Imade, love, yet the singer had disrespected them.
Threatening the singer, he said that his family would be the last one Davido would ever disrespect in Nigeria as he noted how the singer has been getting away with his crimes unforgivable. He vowed to spill teas about the ongoing rift after the Grammys.
In another post, he shared one of his chats with the singer, where he accused him of being a deadbeat father and vindicated Sophia Momodu. Calling for transparency, Tee Billz vowed to expose the truth about Sophia’s stance on their daughter’s visitation and threw shade at the singer for his lack of sense and Yes men around him.
On Tuesday, Tiwa filed a petition against Davido, as she revealed how an Instagram story post with Sophia Momodu, led to Davido hurling insults at her and threatening her, and she retaliated by cutting off ties with him.
Now, the news of her movie release has left many inquiring if the drama was all for publicity.
