Tiwa Savage ft. Hamzaa – “Pakalamisi” Stream & Download
Tiwatope Savage, known professionally as Tiwa Savage, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and actress. Born in Isale Eko, she relocated to London at the age of 11 for her secondary education. Five years later, she began her music career doing backup vocals for artists such as George Michael and Mary J. Blige.
Hamzaa began learning the piano at the tender age of four and was writing her own songs before she’d reached her teens. Her instrumental talents shine on this delicate and uplifting single that brings a modernist edge to a sound rooted in classic soul and R&B. Hamzaa explores the good, bad and painstakingly raw matters of the heart with a profoundly fresh philosophy and perspective.
In 2019 she signed an exclusive recording contract with Universal Records and in September released her first global single titled ’49-99’ under Motown Records.

Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Emma Bunton and Blu Cantrell.
