Tiwa Savage Shares Bittersweet Video For 'My Darlin''

Nigerian artist Tiwa Savage releases the official music video for her new single, "My Darlin'."

With the opening scene of an older woman making jokes about a wedding party in a room full of blushing bridesmaids ('We willl dance and dance... and even dance "Skelewu" and "Azonto"), the video for Nigerian pop star Tiwa Savage's new horn-backed single "My Darlin'" kicks off on a comedic note. Once it bursts into a series of images depicting Savage wedding-gowned, bright-eyed, and then grief-stricken, the Kemi Adetiba-piece emerges as a poignant non-linear portrait of a loving yet tragic relationship. As she previously showed in her "Wanted" video and in the visuals for Waje's "Onye," Savage can provoke both shock and laughter but, in this "My Darlin'" clip, she stirs a kind of warm melancholy.
