Tiwa Savage’s ‘Loaded’, became the first song by a female Afrobeat singer to hit over 1 million views on YouTube within 24 hours of its release. Not done with breaking records, “Loaded” became the number-one song on Spotify, a few hours after release.
Truly, Tiwa Savage has shown once again, with her latest feat, that she’s still the queen of Nigeria’s music industry but many aren’t so impressed with her boldness and place much emphasis on decency.
‘Loaded’ may be getting all the positive reviews it deserves, however, Tiwa Savage’s lyrics in the song, may just end up doing more damage to the song than she probably envisioned.
Responding to critics of her career and private life, Savage in a verse said “Awon blogger blogger ti won fe fi mi gba star (Bloggers who wanted to use me to shine) Sex tape o le baye mi je (Sex tape cannot destroy my life)/Igbadun kekere yen (It was just small enjoyment)”.
However, the verse has, however, generated different reactions from social media users. While some are praising the singer for addressing the incident, others are of the opinion that it is needless to bring the issue back, especially at a moment when almost everyone has forgotten about the sex tape. The official video has hit five million views as of the time of filing this report.
The song was produced by Magicsticks while the visual was shot by music video director, TG Omori.
