Tiwa Savage celebrates successful appearance at the ongoing 2017 Budweiser Made in America Festival holding at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia.
Writing on her Instagram, the Mavin queen revealed that over 70 percent of the crowd that showed up for her event were not Africans but they sang along and bopped to her songs.
“When 70% of the audience are not Nigerians or even Africans but they feel the soul of the music regardless then you know the world is READY for US,” she wrote, adding, “Repping My continent 🙏🏼 A girl from Africa.”
She went on to thank her team for making her outing successful. “I can’t take all the glory for how successful yesterday was, I have the BEST team,” she said.
This comes hours after Wizkid cancelled his own appearance at the festival citing health reasons. However, another male Nigerian artiste who covered the gap was Ycee. The Jagaban rapper had a massively successful outing, too, putting his name on the lips of many.
And it is for this reasons many people agree with Tiwa Savage when she says that Nigerian music has taken over the world; this is no longer a dream. It has become a reality.
Check out her posts from the event:
