The song features fellow Nigerian artist Kizz Daniel as well as Young John on production. "Ello Baby" is a bubbly love song, that sees Tiwa singing in both pidgin and Yoruba about a lover. Kizz Daniel handles the chorus, offering energetic lyrics atop the track's percussive production.

The singer shared the new single on her Instagram page on Thursday, telling listeners that the song is one we can dance to. "You go whine waist tire...upgrade your zanku o," she wrote.

With her continued success and new label deal, we're excited to see what else the star has in store for 2019.

Angélique Kidjo on Africa Day: 'We demand not to be at the mercy of our circumstances anymore.'

We speak to the inimitable Angélique Kidjo who shares some of her refreshing thoughts on Africa Day.

Today is Africa Day and while primarily a commemoration of the formation of the African Union (AU) back in 1963, it has also become an opportunity to unapologetically celebrate Africa while providing a moment for reflection on how far we've come as a continent and as a people.

With this year's theme focused on "Silencing the Guns in the context of the COVID19", there has never been a more important time for deep reflection on our collective present and future as Africans.

And who better to share in that reflection than the legendary and inimitable Beninese musician Angélique Kidjo? A fierce African and artist who has paved the way for many of her contemporaries including Burna Boy, Davido, Thandiswa Mazwai, and several others, the four-time Grammy award winner emphasises the urgent need for unity among Africans. 'It's about time that people start realising that Africa is a continent. I've been saying this my entire career,' she says passionately.

OkayAfrica spoke briefly to Kidjo who shared some of her refreshing thoughts on this year's Africa Day.
