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.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
