A famous Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has recounted what inspired her to produce her debut movie, ‘Water and Garri’.

The songstress said she produced the film to tell African stories through the female perspective.

The 44-year-old made this known while soaking with CNN’s Larry Madowo on the latest episode of African Voices Changemakers.

“I think it is important for people to see Africa and see films being interpreted from a female point of view as well,” she said.

“I love the story and I think it is gonna draw a lot of people back to Africa in a different way.

“I think we have seen a lot of negative light on Africa for so many years and decades and it is with the way Afrobeats music is going, I think film is catching up to that too.

“So, it is very very important for us to tell our own story.”

The film, directed by Meji Alabi, tells the story of one Aisha, a driven fashion designer who returns to her homeland after a decade in the US following a family tragedy.

As she grapples with her past and reconnects with beloveds, including an old flame, she confronts her inner demons.

The movie stars several film stars like Jemima Osunde,Andrew Bunting, Mike Afolarin.
