Things you never knew about Tiwa Savage’s eclectic performance at King Charles III’s coronation concert (VIDEO)


Tiwa Savage at the coronation of Charles III

Fact checks and its officially now the first time a Nigerian artiste would perform at the royal coronation.

Nigerian music songbird, Towatope Savage has on Sunday evening, May 7, 2023 made history

whilst she performed at the coronation concert of King Charles III and Queen Camilla at 
Windsor Castle in England.

This will mark the first time a Nigerian artiste would perform at the royal coronation and a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. 

Over 20000 people attended the Coronation concert, organised by the BBC, while, globally, over 18 million people viewed it with high point of her performance being the two ‘Bata’ (Talking drums) drummers that played beside her leaving the well-packed concert attendees screaming for joy.

Tiwa indeed left the audience enthralled with her beautiful voice, rendered “Keys to the Kingdom,” a song she recorded with Mr Eazi and featured on Beyoncé’s album “The Lion King’’ which was released in July 2019.

When Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records released Beyonce’s Lion King: The Gift album with stellar features from artistes around the globe, no one foresaw any of these songs becoming one to feature at a king’s coronation.

‘Keys to the Kingdom’, a song by Nigerian artistes Mr Eazi and Tiwa Savage, is one of 27 songs Beyonce did not sing but wrote and produced.

The inspirational song is a blend of the traditional Yoruba language and English that aims to motivate one to keep pushing through and defeat doubts.
