Tiwa Savage Tells E! How Tee Billz Moulded Her Into The Woman She Is Today




Popular Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage,
in her recent interview with E!
Entertainment, talked about how she
was able to build her brand as Tiwa
Savage only through the help of her
estranged husband, Tee Billz.

According to her, it was never her
intention to be romantically linked to
Tee Billz whose real name is Olatunji
Balogun.
She said, "When I first met him, I felt he
was very arrogant. He was very tall,
dark, handsome and very confident.

"He oozes that and he always expects
that from me as well. So when I first
met him, I didn't fall in love. It wasn't
love at first sight. Although when he
first met me, he said to me 'so it's
either two things; I am either going to
manage you or marry you. So I was just
like 'What! You are so full of yourself; I
would never date you, let alone marry
you'. So obviously, we decided he was
going to manage me because I turned
down the other option."

"I never saw myself getting
romantically involved with him;
however, on getting to discover another
side of him, I fell for him."
She continued, "We worked so closely
together and I discovered this soft
emotional guy. One who gave up
everything for my career. He had a
great business in L.A but he moved to
Nigeria because he really believed in
me more than I believed in myself.
"So gradually I just started seeing in
him, this person. So it was inevitable. I
tried to fight it. It can't happen and I
couldn't help it."


She went on to stress that Tee Billz is
deserves the praise for shaping up her
brand. She explained, "When Teebillz
became my manager, he molded me
into the Tiwa Savage brand we know
today."

"I needed to do something and I met
my manager who is now my husband.
He saw me and was like 'you could be
really pretty if you put an effort into it'
and I was like 'wait what do you mean'
and he was like 'you need to lose a little
weight, wax your legs; that might be
attractive.
"So he just literally put me through this
whole program and told me that 'the
music is great, the talent is there but
80% of it is branding.'

"So if you want to do the tom-boy
thing, you have to take it to the
extreme if you want to be hot and sexy
you have to take it to the extreme. So I
started learning how to wear heels and
he basically just groomed me into the
image of Tiwa Savage that we see
now".
