From music sensation to movie star: Tiwa Savage stars in the new film, “Water and Gaari.”

Nigeria’s afrobeat queen, Tiwa Savage, is set to dazzle audiences once again, but this time on the silver screen. She announced this project on January 10, 2024, and many Nigerians have been eager to see the movie.

The highly anticipated movie, “Water and Gaari,” is scheduled for release on May 10, 2024, marking Tiwa Savage’s debut as a movie actress and producer. In addition to her acting role, Tiwa Savage has also lent her musical talents to the film by performing the original soundtrack.

Directed by the popular filmmaker, Meji Alabi, and scripted by Comfort Emmanuel, “Water and Gaari” boasts a stellar cast, including actors like Jemima Osunde and Mike Folarin.

With Tiwa Savage at the helm as both the lead actor and producer, the movie promises to be a captivating blend of drama, emotion, and cultural richness.

“Water and Gaari” tells the compelling story of Tiwa Savage’s character, a renowned fashion designer based in the United States who returns to her homeland in Africa to confront the ghosts of her past. Shot against the picturesque backdrop of Cape Coast in Ghana, the movie delves into themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the complexities of identity and belonging.

Tiwa Savage’s character grapples with feelings of guilt and remorse as she navigates the challenges of reconnecting with her roots and facing the consequences of decisions made in the past.

The movie explores the cultural contrasts between life in the diaspora and life in Africa, highlighting the rich tapestry of traditions, customs, and experiences that shape the protagonist’s journey.

Speaking in an interview with Screen Daily, Tiwa Savage said: “This project was a complete labor of love that has been a dream of mine for a number of years. Performing as Aisha allowed me to be totally vulnerable and pushed me to express myself in a way that I’ve never done before. It was an honor to share my debut as an actress with Meji while filming on the African continent with a cast and crew that I have immense admiration and respect for. I’m excited for the world to see this film.”

Tiwa Savage’s versatility as an artist extends beyond music, as evidenced by her foray into acting with appearances in the popular series MTV Sugar.

In the same interview, Director Alabi also added that “Working with Tiwa Savage and the team on Water and Garri was an incredible experience. We’ve worked together on multiple music projects over the years and this film was a perfect progression of our creative growth and shared vision of exploring beyond boundaries. It’s such an exciting story and Tiwa nailed her debut as the lead actress amongst an incredible supporting cast. Looking forward to sharing this film with the world.”

The stellar ensemble cast, which includes talented actors like Andrew Yaw Bunting, Jemima Osunde, and Mike Folarin, brings depth and authenticity to the narrative, portraying characters who embody the complexities of human emotions and relationships. Under the direction of Meji Alabi and the skilled penmanship of Comfort Emmanuel, “Water and Gaari” promises to be a captivating and emotionally resonant cinematic experience.
