BILLBOARD MAKES A POWERFUL STATEMENT WITH ITS RELEASE OF A COVER FEATURING TIWA SAVAGE, DAVIDO & MR EAZI

As Nigerian singer-songwriter, Tolani mentioned in a recent interview, it’s one of the best times to be a creative in Nigeria. “People are excited by the art, fashion, music, film that’s coming out of Nigeria. It feels like part of a movement, in this day and age, to be a Nigerian creative,” she said. That’s especially true of the music scene, which is possibly experiencing its biggest boom in history. Artists like Tiwa Savage, Davido, Mr Eazi and more are finally getting the recognition they deserve – all around the world.

One of such recognitions came in the form of a magazine cover for the latest issue of Billboard. The American entertainment media giant writes of the global stars, “As the industry buzzes with — and profits from — new languages and sounds from all over, the prospects for artists across the continent have never been brighter or more numerous.”

Sharing the news with her 11+ million followers, Tiwa Savage writes, “I AM SO PROUD TO BE AN AFRICAN WOMAN RIGHT NOW 🙌🏽🙏🏾⚔️ Cover of @billboard with my brothers @davidoofficial @mreazi #HISTORY” 

On a similar note, Davido shares an image of one of Billboard‘s covers, with the caption, “I cover magazine I cover magazine !!! 🌎🌎🌎 @billboard Cover with my sister @tiwasavage and brother @mreazi !!! 🙏🏿 …. “The forces that unite us are intrinsic and greater than the superimposed influences that keep us apart.” – Africa Must Unite ! I DREAMT OF THIS SHIT!! ❤️❤️ “

For Mr Eazi, it’s also a moment of pride – not just for him, for the industry at large. “AFRICA NOW!!!! @billboard cover issue with my Brother & Sister @davidoofficial & @tiwasavage

No one puts it better than Tiwa Savage, though, who says in the interview, “People just need to get on the train. This isn’t a fad. With 1.2 billion people, we’re not going anywhere anytime soon. We’re here to stay.”
