Nigerian Afro-beats star, Tiwa Savage is in Uganda for a performance slated for this Friday the 29th of July at the Lugogo Cricket Oval alongside an all-female line-up of acts.
Organized by Jos Global and Talent Africa, the Tiwa Live in Kampala concert will be held under the theme, “Who Runs the World?”, and will feature performances from Winnie Nwagi, Cindy Sanyu, Vinka, Karole Kasita, Sandra Nansambu, Lamu, Laika, Jowi Landa, Sandra Suubi, and DJs Zato and Alisha.
The British-Nigerian songstress – dubbed the Queen of Afrobeats – is in Uganda for the second time,
following her previous Women’s Day 2015 Concert at the Kati-Kati grounds in Lugogo. While addressing the media at a press conference on Thursday 28th July at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel, the Eminado singer who was recently awarded an Honorary Degree by the University of Kent, said,
“I’m very excited to be back in Uganda. My last trip here was filled with so much love and positive energy and
I just had to do this beautiful nation justice once again. It’s also another opportunity to follow up on some personal charity projects that are very close to my heart.”
Dr. Tiwa is passionate about the plight of underprivileged women and is involved in various projects that provide support to teenage mothers in Uganda. CEO of JOS Global speaking at the Press conference said, “We are thrilled to see ladies like Tiwa dominating the international music scene, and we can’t wait to see the international opportunities that await each of the strong female talents on the lineup. Ladies,the world is your oyster, explore it!”
Speaking at the press conference, Aly Alibhai, CEO of Talent Africa, said, “In addition to working with powerful international forces like Tiwa Savage to further highlight and support the growth of Ugandan talent, Talent Africa is committed to providing international opportunities that transcend gender and geographic boundaries.
TIWA SAVAGE LIVE IN KAMPALA was specifically organized to celebrate women in the entertainment industry.” In 2016, Savage signed a management and publishing deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation and has since
released two albums: R.E.D and Celia, with the latter featuring songs like Koroba and Ole.
While speaking on behalf of Tusker Cider, Simon Lapyem, UBL’s Innovations Project Manager said, “This concert is yet another opportunity for Tusker Cider to create deeper bonds with our consumers – who are looking for an easy-drinking yet rich and flavourful taste to accompany their good times.
