Nigerian based multi award winning artist, Tiwa Savage stars in new movie Water and Garri which is set to launch in over 240 countries world wide tomorrow exclusively on Prime Video.
The afrobeat artist is no stranger in the entertainment industry and has had previous acting gigs in her career starring in MTV's Shuga Naija over ten years ago. She makes a comeback with her lead role as an ambitious fashion designer who returns to her Native home after ten years in the US.
A family bereavement brings her back home to a lot of change including a huge increase in violence and tension, and while trying to reconnect with old flames and family, she deals with a lot of past guilt and scars. With a gripping cinematography and story line based in Cape Coast, Ghana, Savage makes her debut lead alongside a very talented cast.
“Developing and shooting my film from an idea to launching globally on Prime Video is a dream fulfilled,” said Tiwa Savage. “I am excited for my fans and newer audiences to experience this vulnerable side of me that I have never shown. Meji Alabi brought the story to life in such a beautiful way, and I cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Water and Garri is a co-production between Everything Savage, Unbound Studios, and JM Films, directed and edited by Meji Alabi (who is very well known in the Afrobeat scene), produced by Jimi Adesanya, and written by Comfort Emmanuel, with music by Tiwa Savage. The executive producers are Savage, Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna, Adesanya, and Alabi.
Tiwa Savage has been extremely busy after just completing her North America Tour, and is set to keep her name ringing with this new release.
'Water and Garri' out soon only on Amazon Prime Video.
