Undoubtedly, 2018 has been a great year for the Tiwa, who has seen a number of her songs and collaboration top the charts and also enjoyed a sold out concert at her first headline show at the Indigo at the O2 arena, UK earlier in September, maintaining her hold as the leading female artist on the scene.
