Watch 2Baba and Tiwa Savage Perform Each Other's Songs In This 'XSwitch Challenge'

Check out these delightful covers from the Nigerian superstars.

Tiwa Savage and 2Baba are the latest pair of artists to take on one another's hits. The heavyweight Nigerian artists participated in an XSwitch Challenge, hosted by the Nigerian-based music streaming service uduX.

In two separate virtual sets, the singer's showed appreciation for each other's catalogs, with 2Baba performing Tiwa's "Lova Lova," and "All Over" (which he names as his favorite Savage track) as well as his own songs "For Instance," "Amaka" and more.


For her set, Savage sang 2Baba's "Ihe Neme," "Only Me," and "Be There" with the support of three back-up singers and a band. She also performs a rendition of Bob Marley and The Wailers' 1977 classic "Wait In Vain" towards the end of her performance.

It's a feel-good exchange between two of Nigeria's biggest artists and many online expressed their excitement over the performances as they watched.

Back in March Nigerian superstars Davido and Asa also participated in an XSwitch Challenge, performing covers of each other's biggest songs.
