The award-winning Afrobeat superstar Tiwa Savage said, “I said this before, this is an idea I had in my head when I was drunk in my room and when I brought the idea to my amazing team, they didn’t make me feel stupid. They actually just said this is a brilliant idea.”

The film, starring Tiwa Savage, premiered on Friday.

Originally conceived as a visual project to complement music she had written two years prior, Savage decided to scrap the existing music and create a new soundtrack that better suited the film’s narrative.

Tiwa Savage describes her film “Water & Garri” as a tale of love and betrayal, centered around a woman who returns home after pursuing her dreams as a fashion designer.
