Tiwa Savage to perform at official Grammy Week event

Nigerian music star, Tiwa Savage, has been announced as one of the artistes that will perform at the 8th annual Essence “Black Women in Music”—an official GRAMMY Week event – this February.

The event, held the week of the Grammys, will take place on February 9 in Los Angeles.

The event is being held to salute the year’s extraordinary GRAMMY nominees and celebrate four-time GRAMMY winner Erykah Badu on the 20th anniversary of her groundbreaking debut album, “Baduizm.”

Speaking about having Tiwa who, recently signed on with Roc Nation, sing at the event, Essence president, Michelle Ebanks, said “Our collaboration with The Recording Academy underscores the mission of our ‘Black Women in Music’ platform. Essence, like the GRAMMYs, has always been at the forefront of recognizing the genius of so many artists and influencers—from iconic legends to the next generation’s international rising stars, like Tiwa Savage.

“We also applaud our event sponsor, Lincoln, for returning once again to support the vision of this event.”

Established in 2010, ESSENCE ‘s Black Women in Music celebrates the achievements of Black women in the industry.
