A slice of Nigerian R&B from the sultry Tiwa Savage, and another impressively crafted video from Meji Alabi - shot in Lagos at a very special place in the history of Nigerian music.

MEJI ALABI:

"We shot this video in a legendary location in Lagos - Fela Kuti's New Afrika Shrine. I wanted the video to ooze authenticity and culture of how it is to not only party at the shrine but to also hang out there as well. It's really a spiritual experience (and gully).

"Tiwa brought her A-Game as usual and Wizkid fit right into the scene perfectly and the fact that they're both naturally amazing performers really made this collaboration one to remember."
