Tiwa Savage Grammy Nomination

For some who may not know, Tiwa Savage who is also a professional writer signed to Sony/ATV publishing co-wrote a popular track called Collard greens and Cornbread off Fantasia's Back 2 Me album which has been nominated for a Grammy in the best R&B album category.

So in preparation for the Grammys which will be held on Sunday, the 13th of February, here is a leak of the original song, Collard greens and Cornbread performed by Tiwa and a video of the album version by Fantasia. You guys should listen to both and share your thoughts on who delivered a better performance. Either way the album received a grammy nod and both artistes benefit.

Congratulations to Nigeria's Own Tiwa Savage on the Grammy Nomination!!! Let us all pray that she bags the award.

i think people are missing something here.Tiwa Sawage is a good songwriter no doubt,but the nomination was in the category of Best R&B album.So before people start saying i'm hating,the award,should Fantasia win it,will be for Fantasia..it's not a songwriter's nomination.period.But i'm happy she co-wrote the song.

Guys sharaaap.....As a co- writer to a song, if it gets any nomination or winning award for a particular song or album which includes the song, the writers and producers practically are involved in the process which makes them a winner tooo..........Una just be ODOLOS

Yes, she co-wrote a song on an album that was nominated. However, the individual song she wrote was not nominated for an award in itself. Therefore, to call her a "nominee" is misleading. We should celebrate her as part of the TEAM that contributed to Fantasia being nominated BUT Tiwa herself, was not nominated. Otherwise, any/everybody that contributed to the album is a "grammy nominee"...that's not how it works. She needs to get off that "nominee horse". But I congratulate her team on their hardwork for getting Fantasia's album nominated.

don't be such an asshole! do you think its easy that a song she co-wrote was nominated for a grammy? For a singer that is new in the industry why shouldn't she be excited? If you think its easy then go ahead and do write or co-write yours with anyone and see if it'll get nominated for even soundcity awards! *mscheww* oshi!!! instead of you to be happy that a nigerian is on the lime light like this you're taking bullshit! I don't know why y'all act like this!

Hollalaykan, you went to school naaa, or at least, we hope you did. Tiwa Savage was no where near the nominations, nor was her name anywhere listed. She was a part of the album, along with hundreds of other people (Producers, Writers, Voice Coaches, Sound Engineers and so on) and that's why the Grammy's (you can confirm the real list at http://www.grammy.com/NOMINEES) try to create as many categories as possible for all these people. Bottomline, Tiwa should be proud of being a part of something good, rather than claim something that is not. P.S. The songwriters on the nominated 'songs'… Read more »

@Hollalaykan & @ayott(OLODO), Of course Tiwa has credit for co-writing 1 out of 19tracks in the album but here is what NJO wrote "Congratulations to Nigeria’s Own Tiwa Savage on the Grammy Nomination!!! Let us all pray that she bags the award." THAT SHE BAGS THE AWARD? This is BS, cos you guys are making us believe that Tiwa was actually nominated and besides it's not a song writers nomination.

If an ALBUM is nominated EVERYONE that worked on that ALBUM is nominated. Songwriters, producers, background singers, instrumentalist, engineers......EVERYBODY.
So even though the album did not win Tiwa Savage is and will always be a Grammy Nominee

Some Nigerians can be so gullible, it's frustrating! Most of the writers on that song are heavyweights, and she was part of a writing team of 5 people. To be honest with you, it was a bit misleading to go round saying that she was a 'Grammy nominee' She is employed bt Sony, so, whatever she writes, becomes the property of her employees, this is why she is paid and is therefore not authorised to claim ownership. So, even if the song had independently won a grammy, a gong would have gone to Fantasia and Sony. It would have been… Read more »

Going by your arguments, Dr Dre or Neyo would have had loads of awards in their cabinets. Dr Dre never got best album award for Doggy Style but he got an award as d producer of same album. Snoop Dogg got the award for best rap album and Dr Dre will not come out and say its my award NO. No point coming here to argue, this is meant to be an educative forum and we all can learn even in sitations like this including NJO. Im sure they must have realized their mistake here.

An accolade is NOT a Grammy, appreciation, is NOT a Grammy. This is why they have the songwriters' category. If you don't win in the songwriters' category, you don't win, period. I've looked through the Grammy website. If that were the case, the purpose of a Grammy would be cheapened, and anyone can get one as there are sometimes up to 60 people that contribute to an album.

I bow for you people oh, false exhaltation! She gets all the props for writing a song, but, whatever award comes is not hers. That's another technicality for you.

MsCollette

Oh, and by the way, the song was not handpicked and nominated, the whole album was! I'm guessing the producers, other songwriters, sound engineers, composers, illustrators, people that provided the paper for the insert, disc manufacturers, the mosquito in the studio that kept quiet for them to lace tracks etc can claim a Grammy nomination!

I'm done with all this banal talk, it's getting irritating!
