“And, just to put it out there, this was done in Nigeria. All the cast is Nigerian, the director, the AP, everybody is Nigerian,” she added.

The music star further disclosed that she might end up shooting her next video at home using her iPhone because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re going through this pandemic, so the idea was I want to let them know that I’m still a boss, that I’m still beautiful, that I’m still African. So, this pandemic has opened my heart to the real situation of where the world is right now,” she said.

Speaking about the forthcoming project, Tiwa said the album encapsulates a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through.

“The album is a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through: love, aspiration, being bossy, being sexy, being vulnerable.”

“All of that is what I think the modern African woman is, and that’s what I wanted to portray. It’s really touched my heart to see that people are having a hard time during this. I mean we’re blessed to be at home, we have light, we can pile up food for months if we want to. But some people can’t.”

About a week ago, the mother of one during an Instagram Live session, described the current pandemic as a weird time for everyone. The ‘Attention’ crooner said the COVID-19 crisis has humbled her because one doesn’t know what would happen next.

“This is a really weird time for everyone. Whether you are rich or famous; it affects everyone. It can be a little scary actually because one doesn’t know what would happen next. One doesn’t know what tomorrow brings. The coronavirus pandemic has humbled me because I had my album ready to be released,” she revealed.

Tiwa revealed that she had a lot on her plate before COVID-19 happened and she was forced to cancel it all.

“I had a lot of shows, festivals and tours lined up. All of that had to be cancelled and some postponed. We don’t know when this will stop. This is despite all the plans one has already made. It definitely humbled all of us.”

She went on to add that she hopes that when the wave passes, everyone will pick the lessons learnt and make their lives much better.

“When this is over, I hope it teaches us to value the small things in life. I hope it teaches us to value spending time with family and saving; it is important to save. When we get back to our normal lives, I hope we don’t go back to what we were doing before.”
