As we anticipate the release of Tiwa Savage’s UMG debut “Celia”, the Afrobeats queen has refuelled our desire for the project with yet another single ‘Koroba’. This comes just a couple of weeks after ‘Dangerous Love’. As the title implies, the song finds Tiwa Savage singing about a dangerous love affair. She’s gone girl-crazy about her love interest and forewarns him of how intense it could be. But she makes just one plea, “no go tire” for me.
However, this new highly percussive Afrobeats tune ‘Koroba’ that’s produced by London. Just a few seconds into the record, Tiwa Savage tells us her declarative mandate “I no come this life to suffer.” She goes on to further ask those who seem to be fixated on the means by which she goes about her goal “who no like enjoyment?”
And in the infectious and dance-spurring hook, she reminds us that everyone has their own problems to face. “Oya carry your koroba,” she sings in the chorus.
The Clarence Peters-directed video opens with ‘the African bad girl’ Tiwa Savage making the news across several media platforms and being the subject of saloon guists. But they immediately switch-up once she starts sharing cash. Check out the video.
