A tender six-track project from the singer-songwriter ahead of her new album.
Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage is back with a sweet new EP, Sugarcane. It’s dripping with love tunes that are honeyed with Tiwa’s dulcet vocals. Over six tracks, she sings in breezy harmonies and riffs while alternating between English and Yoruba. Alongside the project’s undeniable solo cuts, it also features Afropop stars like Wizkid and Maleek Berry.
“I actually never planned to release anything before my official album drops next year so this is a surprise for my fans,” Tiwa told The FADER over email. “I have been in such a great space in the studio and I’ve been creating so much music so it felt right to put out this project. The title is Sugar cane because the music sounded different and sweet to me. With Afrobeat music, I can’t explain it in words you just have to listen and experience the magic.”
