Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music About Collaborating With Sam Smith on “Temptation”…

When I walked in, because we had a recording session with… We had nine rooms in a hotel and I had different pieces of writing, and I walked into this particular room and I heard this record, and I heard the chorus, and I was just like, “This song is so special.” I sat with it for days just trying to get the perfect topline.

And we did everything, and my label and are like, “Which songs do you want to do a feature on?” And I said, “There is this one song that I hear an artist on,” and they were like, “Who is it?” I’m like, “I hear Sam Smith.” But I know that’s never going to happen. So, that’s it. We just walked away from it. I promise you, I wasn’t even thinking that anything was going to happen. Literally, I think maybe six months later, my manager calls me and my manager’s like, “Sam is going to do the record.” I said, “Sam who? What are you talking about?”

Even still, I was just like, no, this is impossible. Five days later, she calls me and she pulls a Khaled on me. She says, “The vocals are in.” I opened my email, I heard it, and I literally had goosebumps, because we don’t know how amazing Sam is.

I was like, wow, this is incredible. And it just changed the whole face of the project. Do you know what I mean? Because this is really happening for afrobeat, not even just with Tiwa.

Tiwa Savage Tells Apple Music About The Afrobeat Genre and Music Coming Out of Africa…

I’m so grateful, not just for that record, but what this means for my genre and the movement that we’re pushing.I was having this conversation with my mom the other day, and I said to her, when she moved me to London, I was bullied so much for being African. I used to try and change my accent, and pretend like I wasn’t African. And it wasn’t cool.

And now being African is one of the coolest things, and afrobeat is the fastest growing genre. And for me, it’s a blessing to live and witness both, to see how it went from not being cool, to being one of the most sought after genres. And not just that, the music is shining a different light on the continent. Africa, we have to rewrite our story. I think it’s been written in so many different ways. And so many people have the wrong impression of Africa. And now having huge legends like Beyonce doing a movement such as Black is King, and shining just a different light on my continent, it’s just amazing.

When someone dies, you now hear the wicked, hypocrite DJs playing his songs — Roo Dube vex over Nana Ampadu’s death

Published

on

Reggae artiste, Roo Dube has lambasted Ghanaian DJ’s with the accusation that they only wait for Ghanaian musicians to die before they celebrate them.

According to him, the passing of the legendary highlife musician Nana Kwame Ampadu saw almost all DJs who did not play his songs when he was alive now abusively play his songs on radio stations.

“When the artiste dies, switch to all radio stations in Ghana. You will hear of the music of the deceased.

“You mark this, if the confirmation comes that Nana Ampadu is dead, all radio stations will play his songs tomorrow. If Ghana was to be another country, the music of Nana Ampadu should be able to feed his son and grandchildren for all their lives. But it is not the case in Ghana,” Roo Dube lamented in an interview with Modernghana Entertainment.

The Reggae artist insists that radio stations and DJs in Ghana are so wicked and should even be partially blamed for the death of some of the old musicians.

“These stations don’t care about us the musicians. Ghanaian DJ’s are very wicked. If they continuously played the music of old musicians, it could even encourage people to go and donate to our musicians who may be in need of money or support one way or the other,” he stated.

Expecting radio stations in the country to play songs of Nana Ampadu on Wednesday in his memory, Roo Dube says if he was a family member of the deceased, he would have sued the radio stations playing his songs.

He stressed that it’s about time Ghanaian stations and DJs followed in the steps of Nigeria by prioritizing local music over foreign music.

He said rarely will one hear of Ghanaian music on radio stations when he or she travels to Nigeria or any other part of the world, but it is not the same in Ghana.
