Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz

It’s no news that Tiwa Savage‘s husband and former manager, TeeBillz discovered and encouraged her to go into music, she’s is not letting that credit go unsaid as she has attributed a part of her success to him.

The mother of one who recently got a whooping offer from RocNation cited Teebillz on her profile on the record label’s website.

She wrote:

“You’re writing songs, you’re writing your experiences and then you’re giving them to somebody else. It never felt quite right; it was something I always wanted. I write these songs, I want to sing it and perform it the way I want to do it because it was something I loved through.”

“I met Tunji and he told me about the growing Afrobeats scene back home in Nigeria. He thought I was wasting my talents being a songwriter & a backing singer and pushed me to move back to Africa.

“At first I thought it was a bit of a step backwards but he was adamant that this was my future. He knew it was what would set me apart from the rest.”
