After three long weeks of protests and fighting the powers that be, Nigerian musicians are slowly getting back to the grind. Tiwa Savage is one of the music royalties to kick off their gradual reentrance to society. She shares the Clarence Peters directed video for Ole, a standout from her recently released thirteen track album, Celia.
Joined by Naira Marley, Tiwa Savage takes to dimly lit streets and arenas to fight for what’s rightly hers. Just as the dark backdrops and fearful looking scene extras, Tiwa Savage appears menacing. She starts off by dedicating the video to every dead victim of bad governance in Nigeria substituting the song’s original meaning for a play on words on the treachery of Nigerian politicians who are the real thieves.
Tiwa Savage is aggressive and assertive and this can-do attitude is just what we need to recharge even in the face of oppression.
