Tiwa Savage and Busy Signal Head to Jamaica In the New Video for ‘Key to the City’

Tiwa Savage's remix single, which features dancehall star Busy Signal, comes off the soundtrack to the film 'A Trip to Jamaica.'

Tiwa Savage touches down in Jamaica in the new music video for “Key to the City.”


The remix single, which features dancehall star Busy Signal, comes off the soundtrack to A Trip to Jamaica, the “Nollywood-meets-Hollywood” comedy from Ayo Makun, co-starring Funke Akindele.

The Moe Musa-directed music video for “Key to the City” follows Tiwa Savage and Busy Signal through the Caribbean island’s beaches and streets as they relieve their stresses.

The Mavins Records singer has had a huge year so far, which has seen her sign a deal with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation and kill it as the only female performer at the One Africa Music Fest. She most recently shared the boss anthem “Bad,” a collaboration with Wizkid.

It should come as no surprise that Tiwa’s got top-tier collabos for days.

Watch her and Busy Signal’s “Key to the City” video above.

Amaarae Breaks Down Her Hits In OkayAfrica's New Video Series 'Decoded'

In Decoded, our favorite African artists dive deep into their music, lyrics and share notable behind-the-scenes moments.

We're launching Decoded, our brand new pop-up style video series featuring the latest, buzzing African artists' music and influences.

We kick things off with Ghanaian-American singer-songwriter-producer Amaarae who has been making waves with the release of her debut album, The Angel You Don't Know.

In our first-ever Decoded episode, Amaarae breaks down hit songs like "Trust Fund Baby", "Jumping Ship" with Kojey Radical as well as her Southern rap musical influences. She also mentions being inspired by an op-ed that she penned for OkayAfrica in 2019, and her mother's role in helping her coin the album title The Angel You Don't Know.

When all is said and done, Amaarae just wants to give other young women "an option not to have to be the archetypal female African artist, and give them an opportunity to expand all of their possibilities, explore all the different genres, and still be successful and get this money." Amen to that!

Check out our first episode of Decoded with Amaarae below.
