We will not talk about the lack of musical depth and meaning in this song during the review, we already did that in the previous review. Instead, let us discuss the controversy this video has generated. Is Wizkid really dating Tiwa Savage, are they best friends as they claim to be? How does Teebliz feel about this video considering few weeks prior to the release of this video he proclaimed Wizkid his little brother and how he trusted nothing could be happening between Tiwa and Wiz because Wiz cannot betray him. You may have to have a rethink there bro.
All in all whether or not something is going on between them, this is most definitely a marketing gimmick, a publicity stunt, they are basically using the controversy to fuel the relevance of the song and their own relevance as an artist
Wizkid has managed to get all of us into talking about his not so great single titled Fever. In fact, the publicity was so great that he trended for a long while on twitter. We expect the word "Stew" to make it into the Urban Dictionary Soon. Tiwa Savage's presence had a huge impact. The impact was so great that at some point, we realised she did not utter a single word in the song. She was basically a glorified video vixen in the song and boy did she play her role well.
Because of this song, Fever has gotten more airplays, more downloads and more streaming generally. We can say the goal has been achieved.
It still does not take away the fact that the song really is not a great song. Yes, Wizkid hoped we will get so distracted about the video so the song can grow on us and it did work to some extent but notice how this song is not really a mega-hit? No that is reserved for the real display of Musical talents.
