Tiwa Savage's 2nd release of the year is a barnburner, but not in the traditional sense. Within the Nigerian Arobeats scene, Savage has been cast as the romantic co-lead opposite reigning Afrobeats' stars like WizKid, and at times, her own fictional creations: i.e. the elusive "Johnny" character that brought her much success in 2014.
For Tiwa Savage's duet with Zlatan, titled "Shotan," the impetus isn't asked to add to her running count of showmances: WizKid, "Johnny," etc. Instead, Tiwa and her younger counterpart keep to their respective quarters - Zlatan chiming in intermittently with a measure of levity to offset Tiwa Savage's looming presence/singing voice. "Shotan" roughly translates to "Is that all," as a measure of confidence, to each their own... attainable levels.
Tiwa Savage, for her part, has come a long way since she pined for the elusive "Johnny." Zlatan is, for all intents and purposes, a "Johhny" archetype with otherworldly potential. Will he suffer the fate of erasure or join Tiwa Savage on the World Stage, only time will tell? Hit us in the comments, and be sure to check out Zlatan's last viral hit, the infectious "This Year."
