Tiwa Savage stars in “Water & Garri,” a drama where a fashion designer returns home after a family loss to find a changed world.

Tiwa Savage has dropped the trailer for her upcoming film Water & Garri, which will premiere on Prime Video on May 10, 2024.

The movie follows Aisha (Savage), a fashion designer returning home from the US. A family loss compels her homecoming, but upon her arrival, Aisha discovers a vastly different reality. The place she once knew is fraught with escalating violence and tension.

Directed by Meji Alabi and produced by Unbound Studio and JM Films, the film was shot in Cape Coast and Ghana and features Mike AfolarinAndrew Bunting, and Jemima Osunde.

In addition to playing the lead role of Aisha, Savage also serves as executive producer, composer, and performer of the original soundtrack.

Savage’s five-track 2021 EP, Water & Garri, also has the same name. It included joint efforts with Nas and Rich King, ‘Work Fada’, Amaarae, ‘Tales By Moonlight’, Brandy, ‘Somebody’s Son’, and Tay Iwar, ‘Special Kinda’.

Savage describes “Water & Garri” as a female-driven story about love and empowerment, a perspective lacking in Nollywood.

“It’s a story first of all told by a female from a female point of view. I advocate for more of that in Nollywood and Africa in general. We do have but I don’t think we have enough. It’s refreshing for me. It’s a story about love, female empowerment,” she said.
