Tiwa Savage and Wizkid Drop the Video for Their Boss Anthem 'Bad'

Tiwa Savage comes through with the music video for "Bad," an all-around boss anthem alongside Wizkid.

Tiwa Savage is having one hell of a week. Just yesterday, the Nigerian star's deal with Jay Z's Roc Nation was officially confirmed, mere days after she killed it as the only female performer at the One Africa Music Fest.


Now, the singer comes through with the music video for "Bad," an all-around boss anthem alongside Wizkid.

The two superstars can be seen tagging graffiti on a wall and stunting on a motorcycle as they drop their verses over the P2J-produced beat.

Check the visuals above for cameos from Banky W, Funke Akidenle, Denrele, and—of course—plenty of dabs.

Plus, check out Tiwa's Instagram posts about her collaboration with 'Young Pablo' below.

This one's a heater.

Mr. P Sets Out To Blaze His Own Trail With 'The Prodigal'

The veteran afropop star experiments with his own distinctive sound on his solo debut album.

Nigerian singer Peter Okoye has reached African music's greatest heights, yet still believes he has something to prove. One half of the superstar afropop duo P-Square, he's had one of the lengthiest and most successful careers in the history of afrobeats.

Now with the release of his debut album The Prodigal, he believes it's time to fully take his solo career to the next level.

Performing under the moniker Mr. P, Okoye began his solo career back in 2017 with the single "Cool It Down," and followed up with a string of tracks that included features with the likes of Niniola, Simi, Jamaican singer Nyanda of Brick & Lace, DJ Switch, and more recently Wande Coal. Now, four years later, Mr. P has finally served us with his debut solo album. Over a soundscape of afrobeats, dancehall, R&B, and more, Mr. P makes a daring statement about his personal musical style.

Everything about The Prodigal was intentional. From the timing of the album, to the musical direction and features by his freshly signed P Classic Records artists, Mr. P carefully crafted the album into what he wanted it to be. In an effort to present an independent version of his craft, he took what he termed "the biggest risk of his career" by deviating from the quintessential P-Square sound. And it paid off, he happily testifies.
