Afrobeats megastar Tiwa Savage has ended her historic ‘Water & Garri’ tour with a sold-out show in Brixton Academy London. The show held on Saturday, 13th August 2022.
Details: In April, Afrobeats award-winning megastar Tiwa Savage announced her 2022 ‘Water & Garri’ Tour which commenced in June and ended in August.
The tour kicked off with the North American leg with her first show in Chicago on Thursday, June 9th, 2022. The eight-city tour ended at the Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver, Canada on June 21, 2022.
After a successful tour of North America, Tiwa Savage kicked off the European leg of the ‘Water & Garri’ tour with a show in Porto, Portugal on June 24th with another one in Switzerland on June 25th.
Her European tour took her across 13 Cities and 11 countries with tickets selling out at every stop. The final stop of her hugely successful tour of Europe came at the Brixton Hall in London where she sold out the 4,000-capacity hall.
During the hugely successful tour, Tiwa Savage delighted her fans with songs from her ‘Water & Garri’ EP as well as a mind-blowing selection of her hits in a career that has spanned over a decade.
What this means for the Industry: The success of Tiwa Savage’s ‘Water & Garri’ tour is an important moment not only for Tiwa but for Afrobeats.
It shows that Nigerian artists especially females can enjoy global success if they put in the work. The tour’s success will inspire fast=rising female Afrobeats stars like Ayra Starr, Gyakie, and Fave to take the baton from the Afrobeats Queen and take the female end of the industry to greater heights.
