“I’m Not Married” – Nigerian Music Star Tiwa Savage disclaims Wedding Rumours

Tiwa Savage Tee Billz - January 2013 - BellaNaija009Last week, we received so many phone calls asking why “BellaNaija didn’t feature Tiwa Savage‘s wedding“. These rumours were sparked after a photo of Tiwa in white lace iro and buba alongside her manager Tee Billz in a traditional kaftan made the rounds online. We did our research and confirmed that Tiwa and Tee Billz did not tie the knot recently so did not run a story. The photo was actually taken at an event on the same day as the 2012 Eloy Awards in November 2012 which we covered on BN.

Last night, due to persisting rumours, Tiwa decided to clear the air via her twitter page by categorically stating “I am not married“.

See Tweets below.

Tiwa’s alleged groom is Tunji “Tee Billz” Balogun . Tee Billz is a popular figure within the entertainment circuit as he currently manages the careers of major music stars including Tiwa and D’Prince. He has previously worked with Sauce Kid and Dammy Krane. He and Tiwa co-own 323 Entertainment which they founded after they met in Los Angeles a few years ago.

The bond between the business partners is obviously strong based on previous statements made by Tiwa and also their various public appearances together. Here is what Tiwa had to say in her 2010 interview with NotJustOk – “I also have to say a big thank you to my close friends and family because it is not easy but their love has kept me going also Tee Billz because he is more that my business partner, he is a dear friend and my mentor and none of this would have happened without him. I wanna thank God; HE is my everything.

While they have confirmed they are not married. They did not deny that they are in a relationship. Whatever the case, wishing them all the best. Check out photos of Tiwa & Tee Billz below.

    She didn’t lie,she is only making us know that she is not married,she didn’t say they are not dating neither did she say they are….anyway they sure look great together,love Tiwa always….

  • kk January 18, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Story story *yawns* don’t be fooled. Even a dummy knows they are together. She will continue to lie to stay relevant and wanted by fans. That is the trick

  • Desire January 18, 2013 at 10:07 am

    Read people! She said she is not married. There is a clear difference between dating a person and marrying same. its a no brainer that they are dating. She didnt deny that.

  • Presh Bee January 18, 2013 at 10:24 am

    @KK and all haters, please read carefully before you comment. She didn’t make any declarations about her relationship status, neither did she deny him. Please respect her privacy, and yes she’ll always be relevant!!! Go get your relevance too.

    • hushwale January 18, 2013 at 10:45 am

  • Tiki January 19, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    BTw They are very married….. For her career she wants to remain “Chaseable”. She has been known to repeatedly deny that she’s even dating the guy. We all know better. Read Between the Lines……..

  • slim January 20, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    Testing testing

  • Okeke maximus January 20, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    If they can controll their emotion, i.e not to cheat one another, i think the way their forging ahead makes me say they deserve to be couples.

  • kmh January 20, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    @Abaya you lied big time..you don’t know any of her song??? Just like ur name sound,I won’t go further!

  • word January 20, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    This is how Yvonne Nelson kept saying we r just friends (she & Inyaya) until she took to Twitter one day ranting over Tonto Dike stealing him. Keep confusing us, but dont just disturb us if someone pulls a Tonto on u o!

  • beeess January 20, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    There is no reason why my so-called business partner should be kissing my cheeks in public biko..if they are dating, thats another thing entirely…but mixing business and pleasure is out of this world!

  • Focus January 21, 2013 at 4:22 am

    Tiwaaaaa.. pls marry him… chai.. you two look so good together!

  • Ibe January 21, 2013 at 9:11 am
