Watch Tiwa Savage Perform 'Attention' on A COLORS SHOW

Her uber smooth performance at the Colors Studios is everything you need to hear this weekend.

Just two weeks ago Tiwa Savage released two new singles, "Owo Mi Da" and "Attention".

The latter is a smooth joint produced by Blaqjerzee which speaks about a man who isn't taking enough notice of his woman. Tiwa Savage recently performed "Attention" on A COLORS SHOW and of course her performance is nothing short of spectacular.


Listen to Attention on Apple Music or Spotify.

Looking stylish in a denim-on-denim ensemble, the Nigerian superstar starts off her performance strong. While the track itself is mid-tempo and laid-back, there's a spirited and even defiant feel to the way she pours herself into the catchy lyrics. Tiwa Savage's energy is definitely in sync with the infectious beat of the track as well as its diverse instrumentals and rich background vocals. We're not surprised though—she's perfectly in her element and confidently so.

Tiwa Savage continues to have a standout year. After she dropped her massive song "49-99" and its accompanying striking visuals, she went on to sign a major deal with Universal Music Group in addition to being featured on Beyoncé's The Lion King: The Gift album.

Cameroon Holds Vigil to Remember Children Killed in School Attack

Residents in Kumba paid their respects to the seven lives lost, and those injured during the attack over the weekend.

In the latest tragedy to come from Cameroon's historically violent clash between Anglo and Francophone citizens, seven children were murdered after attackers stormed a school with guns and machetes over the weekend.

In what has been deemed as the "darkest and saddest day," by Bishop Agapitus Nfon of Kumba, armed attackers stormed the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy, targeting students aged 9 to 12. The tragic event saw dozens of children injured, some critically.

The attack has shocked the nation, with both local and international agencies condemning the horrible offense. On Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya denounced the "horrific murder" of the school children, and alluded to the "appropriate measures" being taken in order to bring justice to the families of the victims. Prime Minister Dion Ngute Joseph shared his condolences via a tweet saying, "I bow before the memory of these innocent kids."

The Cameroonian presidency and governing body have blamed Anglophone 'separatists' for the attack, though the group claims no part in the attack.

Human rights groups, however, have blamed both opposing parties, as the conflict has led to the death of over 3,000 deaths and resulted in more than 700,000 Cameroonians fleeing their homes and the country.
