‘Mummy Jam Jam’ couldn’t have picked a better title for her mini project which comes out in a few days. The singer has always been the true definition of sweetness. She conjures it with each step. It lingers on her breath as she exhales, dances in her shoes and flows through her syrupy music. Even when she sleeps, it envelopes her in a cloud of tender dreams, rushing sugar, and scents of lavender.
She is the beautiful sugarcane; the source of all things beautiful, pristine, and sexy. A standard for her peers, and the epitome of everything a female pop star should be like. That’s why she is Tiwa Savage . It’s the only explicable reason for her success and greatness. No one has done it like her, and none looks primed to take her throne for now.
“Sugarcane” comes after the success of her album “R.E.D”, which was released at the end of 2015 and lingered through 2016, providing the singles ‘If I start to talk’, ‘Bad’ and ‘Attention’.
Just like the last project, Wizkid is also featured on this one. He comes in on the sixth and final track, ‘Ma Lo’ , which is produced by Spellz. The last time Wizzy and Tiwa collaborated, it was for ‘Bad’, a single that pushed through radio and TV as a hit, and got a Headies nomination.
Tiwa’s new project is coming in at a time when it characteristically rains albums in Nigeria. Already the project-race is on this year, with many LPs released or in waiting. But somehow you get the feeling that “Sugarcane” EP will hold its own. Afterall, it isn’t anything. Something. One thing.
