On Sunday, May 7 2023, internationally renowned singer Tiwa Savage lived up to her name as Queen of Afrobeat after a rare global moment at the coronation concert of King Charles III in London. Stunning the whole world in a breathtaking emerald green dress, the beautiful and talented Songstress gave an incredible rendition of her hit song, ‘Keys of the Kingdom’ at the Winsor Castle concert, performing to not only the British monarchs but also powerful monarchs from across the globe. Since Tiwa Savage kickstarted her career, the 43-year-old mother of one has added many feathers to her cap.

But this time around made history as the first-ever African to perform at the coronation of a British monarch and among the 12 A-listers honoured to perform at the well-anticipated ceremony. On social media, many celebrities and even her colleagues cannot get enough of this Afrobeats queens’ latest win. From Davido to Iyabo Ojo, Kiekie, Waje, Korra Obidi, Obi Cubana, Annie Idibia, Mo Abudu, Kaffy, and many others have all been pouring in their congratulatory messages. Fans are included; many cannot help but give Tiwa her flowers as a Queen and more. Regardless, Tiwa’s performance has been met with mixed reactions. Many have condemned the sonorous singer for performing for a monarchy famous for enslaving.

At the same time, Beyonce fans insist that it was utterly disrespectful for Tiwa to perform the song from Queen B’s Album titled Black is King that spoke against the Black nation’s colonial masters. In their exact words, “Black is King, not White is King.” Did Tiwa Savage prove she is the Queen of Afrobeat with this performance? Is she about to be canceled for performing at the concert for a monarchy with a long history of enslaving black nations?
