By Patricia Uyeh
Music diva, Tiwa Savage has been listed as one of the artistes that will perform at the 8th annual Essence “Black Women in Music”, which is an official grammy week event on February 9 in Los Angeles.
The event is being held to salute the year’s outstanding grammy nominees and also to 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.”
In 2011, the ” If I start to talk” crooner was nominated in the best R&B album category for a song that she co-wrote on American artiste, Fantasia’s album.
