American R&B singer, Pharrell Williams showers praises on Tiwa Savage after listening to her EP, ‘Water and Garri.’
The self-acclaimed African bad gal shared a video of herself with the fashion designer who listened to her EP and then gave his opinion of the project.
Tiwa said she hasn’t played the EP for so many people because she is always scared. Pharrel went on to encourage her, calling her music a “Classic”. He further described the song as “Boat music, BBQ music and a self reflection music”.
“Anybody that doesn’t get that shouldn’t be listening to music. You’re right, it’s not a commercial song, but that’s a classic. And be clear that it’s okay to have a classic. That right there, that’s like boat music, that’s like barbeque music, that’s like self-reflection music”, the renowned producer said.
According to Pharrell Williams, Tiwa Savage is indeed a spectacular songwriter and singer as he gives the song a 5-star review.
Sharing the video, Tiwa said she is delighted to have the rapper’s view on the body of work, adding that she now needs to pick a date for its release.
