This is a prosperity prayer by Tiwa Savage. In this song, the singer says she wants to be blessed and be prosperous. She prays to be among those who would build new houses, among those who would buy expensive cars and among those who prosper in what they do. She says you find new and good things every year and she also encourages parents to be firm in handling their children (as this would make children prosperous). Considering the timing of the release of this song, Tiwa definitely considers this a prayer for the New Year.
Tiwa Savage has successfully blended Afro hip pop and high life genres of music in this song. With a display of a rich blend of the Yoruba and English languages, code-switching from one to the other, Tiwa Savage expresses personal interest in greater prosperity. At the same time and essentially, she speaks for all who pray to be blessed and prosper as well.
Instrumentally, it is yet another rich combination of afro juju and hip pop.
A lot of youths in Nigeria today hope and pray for prosperity and One by Tiwa Savage expresses exactly that. The singer with this song has showed an understanding of the mind of the Nigerian youth, a trait that will keep her loved by many. Tiwa Savage as usual, holds hers strongly in the world of music. This is yet another hit from the music diva. Enjoy it!
