On August 22, 2021, Nigerian superstar, Tiwa Savage shared a video of legendary American singer, Brandy crying after she recorded her verse on ‘Somebody’s Son.
The record, which documents a woman’s yearning for love and the warmth of romance after enduring years of heartbreak aligns with the heartache that Brandy and Tiwa Savage have both suffered in their personal lives. On the song, Brandy delivered in Yoruba and sang with panache, as expected.

During a recent chat with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Savage revealed that Brandy is her idol, “Brandy is literally the reason why I started singing, literally. As a kid, just listening to I Want To Be Down, every interview I’ve ever had, she’s my favorite, my all time, my mentor, everything. And I’ve been trying to work with her for years. It was a dream of mine.
“And when it happened this time, it’s not even just music, we connected like sisters. She’s someone that I speak to literally every other day. It’s beyond my expectation.”
‘Somebody’s Son’ looks like the leading track from Savage’s newly released EP, Water and Garri.
