In two separate virtual sets, the singer’s showed appreciation for each other’s catalogs, with 2Baba performing Tiwa’s “Lova Lova,” and “All Over” (which he names as his favorite Savage track) as well as his own songs “For Instance,” “Amaka” and more.
For her set, Savage sang 2Baba’s “Ihe Neme,” “Only Me,” and “Be There” with the support of three back-up singers and a band. She also performs a rendition of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ 1977 classic “Wait In Vain” towards the end of her performance.
