Tiwa Savage, a former Mavin Records recording artist, releases her much-anticipated track, “49-99.”

The track was made available on September 5, 2019. The lyrics “49 sitting, 99 standing” from Fela Kuti’s 1978 hit song “Suffering and Smiling” are referenced in the song’s title.

Additionally, “49-99” follows her smash hit “One.”

In a press release, Tiwa claimed that it depicted the “terrible life many Nigerians lead.” A transit bus is used as a case study, she continues. It should only have 49 seated passengers, but due to the bad economy, we frequently have nearly double that number of passengers standing (99).

The singer creates a sound that has been described as a refreshing change by fusing the highlife’s dynamic speed and intensity with the electronic dance music’s percussive and electronic vibrations.

This is also a tremendous smash single that you wouldn’t want to overlook.

Additionally, the likelihood is high that you already own the most recent wild hit song if you appreciate music.

Quotable Lyrics:

49 sitting 99 standing oh my God o
I get money before no be property o
Waiting for danfo, waiting for Uber and Okada
Omo no be so, me I want to live o
I gat to get the dollar
Ko kunle
Plenty plenty mulla
Aje gunle
Monkey no get skills
Igi su mo igi, l’obo fin yor
I thank you Lord
