From "Kele Kele' to 'Eminado' to 'Ma Lo,' here are the 20 best songs from Nigerian superstar Tiwa Savage.

Since landing on the scene in 2010 with "Kele Kele" and her 2013 debut album "Once Upon a Time," Tiwa Savage has shown time and again why she is one of the biggest voices in Nigerian music.

Her contributions to the industry have earned her both local and international achievements such as MTV Europe Award for Best African Act (2018), The Headies Award for Best Collaboration (2018), MTV Africa Music Award for Best Female Artist, and more.
