Nigerian singer, songwriter and actress Tiwa Savage has revealed that her debut movie ‘Water & Garri’ was conceived while she was intoxicated.

The music diva disclosed this at the pre-launch press conference held at the Livespot Entertainment Centre in Lagos, on Thursday.

“I said this before, this is an idea I had in my head when I was drunk in my room, and when I brought the idea to my amazing team, they didn’t make me feel stupid. They actually just said this is a brilliant idea,” Savage recounted.

The movie, which is now streaming on Prime Video, is directed by Meji Alabi and jointly produced by Everything Savage and Unbound Studios.
