Tiwa Savage or Tems, who is the Queen of Afrobeat? Find out!
Who should be crowned the Afrobeat Queen between Tiwa Savage or Tems?
Tems and Tiwa Savage are both in their own rights musical superstars, but it appears that their supporters want to crown only one of them as the Queen of Afrobeats, as they have once again been pitched against one another.
Tiwa savage has had her record-breaking moments and paved the way for the younger musicians and it will be disrespectful to compare her with Tems, her longevity and number of hits can not be overemphasized, so therefore she’s the Queen of Afrobeat.
The two of them are the most contentious Nigerian musicians that are frequently discussed on social media.
They have sparked a debate today about who the Queen of Afrobeat is. You all need to be able to judge this.
Nigeria’s Lagos State is where Tiwatope Savage was born. Her family relocated to London when she was 11 years old, and she quickly developed a love for singing and performing (at 16, she sang backup for George Michael).
But her parents always placed a high value on formal education. Savage finally graduated from the University of Kent with a degree in accounting.

Tiwa Savage already has an impressive list of firsts under her belt, but in 2018 she elevated this to a continental level by being the first woman to receive the Best African Act honour at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
Tiwa Savage had been nominated alongside Davido, Distruction Boyz from South Africa, Davido, and Nyashinnski from Kenya before winning and securing a victory for female musicians in Africa and Nigeria generally.
Also, Tems on the other hand is a powerful force that has an effect outside of the internet. The rebel gang leader magnificently surpasses people’s expectations of her at a time when they believed it was impossible to beat her accomplishments.
The song “Wait For U” is a sample of Tem’s song “Higher,” which is on her debut EP.
Tem made history by being the first African artist to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second Nigerian artist to reach that position.
But yet it doesn’t make her the Queen of Afrobeat yet.
