Tiwa Savage: Reason Why I Made The Film “Water and Garri”


Tiwa Savage: Reason Why I Made The Film “Water and Garri”

The Nigerian artist Tiwa Savage claims that she produced her first film, “Water and Garri,” to present Africa in a positive light.

On the most recent African Voices Changemakers program, Savage chatted with CNN’s Larry Madowo.

The 44-year-old singer claimed that the purpose of her film production was to present African stories from a female point of view.

“I think it is important for people to see Africa and see film being interpreted from a female point of view as well,” she said.

“I love the story and I think it is gonna draw a lot of people back to Africa in a different way.

“I think we have seen a lot of negative light on Africa for so many years and decades and it is with the way Afrobeats music is going, I think film is catching up to that too.

“So, it is very very important for us to tell our own story.”

The film tells the story of Aisha, an ambitious fashion designer, who returned to her native country — following the loss of a family member — after being away for 10 years in the United States.

She had to learn to live with her scars and confront the guilt she left behind while reconnecting with family, old friends, and her past love.

A good movie makes the audience feel like they’ve journeyed with the characters. Am pretty sure Tiwa’s movie will make her audience feel good.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️
