Report shows the video got 86,000 YouTube views in 2 days. Aside that, it also has been able to engage Tiwa’s fans, the critics, and her constituency (the celebs).The motive of every artiste is to produce materials that will not only entertain people, but also shock them, and spark conversations. Unknown to many , the Marvin first lady leveraged on a strategy in advertising circles known as Shock advertising.
Wikipedia puts it this way ”Shock advertising or Shockvertising is a type of advertising generally regarded as one that “deliberately, rather than inadvertently, startles and offends its audience by violating norms for social values and personal ideals.” It is the employment in advertising or public relations of “graphic imagery and blunt slogans to highlight a public policy issue, goods, or services. Shock advertising is designed principally to break through the advertising “clutter” to capture attention and create buzz and also to attract an audience to a certain brand or bring awareness to a certain public service issue, health issue, or cause” Celebrities, authors, and entrepreneurs globally deploy this strategy to push their brands, sell their books, and engage their fans. Normal is boring. To get more buzz and capture people‘s attention you need to do something worth talking about. Love her or hate her , Tiwa Savage is playing the sexy diva card and yes !its working for her. Let’s face the truth. How do you want to make a huge impression if all you do is engage in the ordinary? You have to go above and beyond the predictable. Many have fallen into the trap of expending priceless energy in criticizing this video, but fail to learn the lessons Tiwa wants to ingrain in our consciousness. Normal sucks, dare to embrace the remarkable.
