In timely and starry fashion, Tiwa Savage is drawing the release of her Universal Music Group debut album, Celia, nearer on the horizon. While her last release, Dangerous Love still enjoys generous airplay, she circles back this week with Koroba, on which detours from her regular romance route and instead, bites back on the sexist state of the society.
Tiwa Savage has clearly had enough and is swayed in the direction of activism this time by dedicating her resources to calling out the inherent sexism that rules not only the music industry but the society at large. She begins the London produced track “I no come this life to suffer, If I follow politician you go hear am for paper, them go call am prostitution, who no like enjoyment”. These lines are proof that she’s unfazed by the rumours that cloud her identity and will spin her controversies in whatever form she likes.
Koroba is not a direct response to the sexist state of the society, it’s also folklore leaning potential anthem well on its way to soundtracking defiance.
