And the phoenix rises from the ashes…well, maybe not literally, but then, considering the torrid couple of months she had to endure with her marriage issues and all, one could hardly see Tiwa Savage getting her proverbial groove back anytime soon.
Get it back though, in this context, doesn’t seem to quite cut it; she never lost it! This lady, from the very moment she burst out on to the Nigerian music scene and stole all our hearts with her impeccable vocal dexterity and showmanship (or womanship…hehehe), has confirmed her acclaimed status as not only the Mavin Dynasty first lady, but indeed Nigeria’s Afro-Pop first lady as well.
“Robo skeske, robo skeske”, whatever that means. Whether you do know, or not though, one fact is unarguable: this was a ‘jam of life’ from the minute it hit the airwaves, and it has sure lived up to expectations. But then, we all know that a great song without an equally impressive montage is just a sad waste of material, right? Well, the queen did not disappoint on this one at all!
A JM Films Production, directed by Meji Alabi, Malo’s official video has already hit well over 630,000 views on YouTube (as at press time) in just under a week of its release. Now, that’s what you call impressive.
With a plot that typified the usual ‘thug love’ scenario – guns, booze, money, steamy dance scenes with semi-exotic dancers in a makeshift net-cage (pretty yummy mix) – Tiwa brought all to bear on this as well with lovely choreography, and of course, remarkable synergy with co-star Wizkid (who really needs no epistle written about him again actually…virtually everything he touches turns to gold).
Since the taste of the pudding is in the eating actually, we serve you this week’s hottest, juiciest and freshest video as our top Video for the Week; Saturday, November 4, 2017: Tiwa Savage Ft. Wizkid & Spellz – “Malo”.
