Tiwa Savage promotes new single under Obalende Bridge [PHOTOS]

Ahead of her album release slated for 2020, pop diva, Tiwa Savage, on Tuesday promoted her latest single ’49-99′ under the popular Obalende bridge in Lagos.

The single and video is her first official single since she was signed on to Universal Music Group in May.

Despite the heavy downpour, a teeming crowd converged under the bridge to attend the surprise performance.

The event was organised by Boomplay.

The 39-year-old singer began her performance at 3.05 p.m., performing some of her greatest hits from, ‘All Over,’ ‘Ello Baby,’ ‘Ma Lo,’ ‘Diet’ before wrapping up with ’49-99’ to the delight of the audience.

The singer released her Fela-inspired single titled ‘49-99’ on September 5 and explained that it referred to ”the 49 people standing and 99 seating in a typical molue bus”.

Explaining the inspiration for the title at a listening party in London a few weeks back, Tiwa said it came from the words “49 sitting 99 standing” in Fela Kuti’s ‘Suffering and smiling’.

She explained further: “The song encourages the young to put down the sense of inheritance and work for what they desire in life, for a better tomorrow. We can’t sit on our old glories and expect things to change for the better.
