The first afrobeats global live-stream event to fans worldwide is set to take place this Saturday, August 13.
The Nigerian music icon Tiwa Savage nicknamed “Queen of Afrobeat” yesterday publicized details of “Tiwa Savage in London” as the final show of her acclaimed “Water & Garri Tour”.
The live-stream event will be broadcast live from London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The event will be powered by Kiswe global streaming music platform in partnership with Universal Music Africa.
Fans worldwide will be able to access the first-ever afrobeat live-streamed concert that will be globally available.
Tiwa Savage started her “Water & Garri Tour” in North America earlier this year, playing throughout the U.S. and Canada before continuing to Europe.
This follows the 2021 release of her Water & Garri EP, which features the likes of Nas, Brandy, and Amaarae. The Water & Garri EP is Tiwa’s first project since the 2020s critically acclaimed album Celia.
“On Saturday 13th we will make history at the O2 Academy Brixton in London. I’m grateful to be partnering with my label UMG Africa, Kiswe & AdrianoMDM to share this moment with my fans,” said Tiwa Savage.
“The support I’ve received across my career so far has been incredible so to be able to give something back in this way feels good.”
The event will start with a 25-minute opening video celebrating Savage’s past performances, music videos, and a note to fans. The two-hour concert will begin at 9 pm UK, 4 pm EDT for fans to view from the comfort of their own homes.
