According to media outlet, Screen Daily, the movie Water and Garri stems from Tiwa’s 2021 EP of the same title.
In the movie, while in the city of Cape Coast in Ghana, Tiwa plays the role of a fashion designer with a budding career in the U.S. who returns to her home in Africa to confront the guilt she left behind.
The 49-year-old singer is joined by Mike Afolarin, Andrew Bunting and Jemima Osunde.
Sharing a post on Instagram of a picture of her on set and with directors, she wrote, “This is about to be an ICONIC moment. My first calling and co-directing debut with the GOAT @meji Alabi.”
