Tiwa Savage Releases Third Studio Album, “Celia”
Tiwa Savage has released her 3rd studio album titled ‘Celia’. The album comes 3 years after her last project, which was the ‘Sugarcane’ EP which was released in 2017.
The album ‘Celia’ was named after Tiwa’s mother and it was given this title as homage to her. In reference to her her linkage between the album and her mother, Tiwa stated that: “She embodies everything that this album is. It speaks to a strong, modern African woman. This album is Afrobeats from a very female perspective. It’s an extension of the African woman: she still values her culture and her upbringing, but she’s also well-travelled, so it’s blending those two worlds. I want every woman that listens to this to feel attached and connect to it”.
Housed on the album are 13 records with features from Sam Smith, Naira Marley, Stefflon Don, Dice Ailes, Davido and Hamzaa. On the album, Tiwa Savage deftly infuses Afrobeats with a feminine impulse, rhythmically exploring the many facets of womanhood.
