Tiwa savage has revealed how estranged husband, Teebillz played a major role in creating the Tiwa Brand we all love today.
According to the singer, Teebillz made her dump her songwriting career abroad to kick-start a very successful music career in Nigeria. “I met Tunji and he told me about the growing Afrobeats scene back home in Nigeria”. She said.
“He thought I was wasting my talents being a songwriter and 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”.
Tiwa Savage, before returning home had a music deal with Sony ATV as a writer, which saw her co-writing songs for international stars like Babyface, Kat Deluna, Fantasia and Monica.
She was also privileged to provide background vocals for George Micheal, Mary J Blige, and on late Whitney Houston’s 2009 album ‘I Look To You’.
