Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage releases a new song titled 49-99 and before you wonder what it meant. We have the full scoop and will serve in a minute. Anyways this is her first official single after her Mavin exits titled “49-99.”
From her pre-release interview, Tiwa revealed that Olamide, Pheelz co-write the song for her and it was produce by Pheelz.
The meaning of the 49-99 was traced to an old Fela song about suffering and smiling, 49 sitting and 99 standing in the popular “Molue” commuting bus. The new track also has a music video to it.
“The song encourages the young to put down the sense of inheritance and work for what they desire in life, for a better tomorrow. We can’t sit on our old glories and expect things to change for the better.
“‘49-99’ also addresses some political leaders who, instead of focusing on the growth of a nation, are there just for the money and having affairs with underage girls – while the citizenry is hustling hard to make a daily living.”
