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.

The Rise of Stan Culture In Afrobeats

From Marlians to Wizkid FC, afrobeats fandoms are contributing to the globalization of the sound—even if some might consider them overly obsessive.

Last month, over half a million people, from 99 countries tuned into No Signal's livestream to join the "clash" between Wizkid and Vybz Kartel. The clash was the most legendary one that the No Signal team had hosted since they started their DJ clashes in April. Afrobeats and dancehall lovers were excited to watch this competition—choosing country affiliations in lighthearted fun. Though people had expected fierce competition, due to both artists being megastars with chart topping hits in their own lanes, no one had expected results like the polls reflected. There was an average of 72,000 votes per round and Wizkid won every round defeating Vybz 10 to nil.

Some people joked that the DJ behind Vybz Kartel's song choices was the reason for the loss; others attributed it to the population of Nigeria. What was clear, however, is that many people had underestimated Wizkid's fandom and Team WizKidFC's mobilization prior to the clash.
