Tiwa Savage’s “Water & Garri” EP is her calmest and most systematic piece of work that unifies current conformity
Tiwa Savage‘s EP is her calmest and most meticulous piece of music is which combines current conformity with traditional African rhythms.
Tiwa Savage announced the release of her second-ever EP earlier this week, just a year after her last album, ‘Celia.’
Tiwa Savage is back and better than ever, releasing the front side of what is said to be a double EP, ‘Water & Garri,’ today.

‘Water & Garri,‘ which was released on Tuesday, features Nas (who also appeared on ‘A Better Time‘ last year), Tay Iwar, Amaarae, and Brandy, with the latter two being the most anticipated credits.
Tiwa Savage, through her features alone, ensures that this project spans every corner of the globe, clearly displaying her international record label contact list as she taps singers from alternative music circles.

This effort is reflected in the musical substance as well. ‘Water & Garri,’ a dynamic combination of tastes and genres stitched together by Tiwa Savage‘s intentional talent, is an album full of surprises.
But, before I get ahead of myself and reveal the game, here are my initial impressions of the project after only one listen.
“Work Fada” featuring NAS & Rich King
This show is on fire. The jazz notes are fantastic, the bass guitar is incredible, and the chorus chants are incredible.
This spoken-word delivery from Tiwa Savage is a nice surprise, isn’t Rich King Yoruba? This is a truly lovely tune, as well as a shocking and enthralling album opener.
I was just thinking about how long this song is when Nas starts his verse, which is obviously highly thoughtful in both lyrical and delivery tone.
The “run” (or whatever they call it) yell that keeps the song moving is probably my favorite part of it. Very astute. That’s fantastic.
