  • My “ife” for this song “a gbona”. I love this song so much that I initiated my family into it by playin the video every morning for everyone in the house. It is the everyday ritual of ours. We adore the song by playing it a zillion times. I listen to the audio more than 40 times a day. The song is a marvel of impeccable creativity. And you Bukey, made my joy whole when you gave the lyrics on your blog. You will grow.

  • I heard this tune a few nights ago. Until then, I had never heard of Tiwa Savage.AI live in Los Angeles but I try to stay under the radar and I keep away from the goings and coming or contemporary events. But I couldn’t stop listening to this tune. I went and did some research on Tiwa and I love everything about her. I wrote this piece on my blog to celebrate her.
