Tiwa Savage and Wizkid Turn Up at Femi Kuti's New Afrika Shrine In the Music Video for "Ma Lo"

Watch Tiwa Savage and Wizkid turn up at the Kuti's New Afrika Shrine in their latest music video for "Ma Lo."

A gift from the afrobeats gods:

Two of the genre's biggest names, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid, dropped the music video for their latest collaboration "Ma Lo" earlier today, and it's lit. The track is the uncontested standout from Tiwa Savage's latest EP Sugarcane, and the duos' second collaboration after last year's "Bad." The song features production from heavyweight producer Spellz.


The Meji Alabi-directed video, sees the Nigerian stars head to the Kuti family's New Afrika Shrine in Lagos for an intensely live party, packed with friends, dancers, and other really well dressed people. Tiwa hits some choreographed dance moves, while Wizkid hangs about smoking, chilling and looking cool.

The video matches the songs fiery energy as Tiwa and Wizkid trade lines back and forth. It's a certified party banger.

Watch the video below, and revisit our interview with the Queen of Afrobeats from last month.
