Tiwa Savage Reveals the ‘Water & Garri’ Soundtrack’s Tracklist From Her Upcoming Debut Film

Ahead of Tiwa Savage‘s upcoming debut film Water & Garri, the Afrobeats superstar revealed the full tracklist for the official soundtrack on Monday (April 29).

The 10-track project features collaborations with Olamide and Mystro Sugar (“Commona”), Reekado Banks (“Reason”), Aṣa (“Emotions”), Zacardi Cortez (“I Need You”), Ayra Starr (“Gara”), Black Sherif and Young Jonn (“Kilimanjaro”) and Richard Bona and The Cavemen (“Water & Garri”).


The Water & Garri soundtrack is not to be confused with Savage’s 2021 EP of the same name, which featured collaborations with Nas and Rich King (“Work Fada”), Amaarae (“Tales By Moonlight”), Brandy (“Somebody’s Son”) and Tay Iwar (“Special Kinda”). Pharrell Williams hailed the project as “a classic.”

Produced by Everything Savage and Unbound Studios, Water & Garri will premiere on Prime Video on May 10, with the soundtrack being released on the same day via EMPIRE.


Directed by Meji Alabi, Water & Garri tells the story of Aisha (played by Savage), an ambitious fashion designer who has spent the last 10 years in the U.S., and returns to her native country following a family bereavement. “At home, things have changed — violence has escalated and tensions have been high. As she reconnects with family, old friends, and her past love, she must learn to live with her scars and confront the guilt she left behind,” a press release accompanying the announcement said.

Mike Afolarin (Far From Home), Andrew Bunting (Dynamite) and Jemima Osunde (New Money) will star alongside Savage in the new movie, which was filmed in Cape Coast, Ghana. Savage, Vannessa Amadi-Ogbonna, Jimi Adesanya and Meji Alabi are all executive producers. The Prime Video film will be available in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
