In an exclusive and special one-on-one interview with the Queen of Mavin Records, Tiwa Savagespoke at great length on her music, career, motherhood and fame.
During the interview with pulse, Tiwa Savage, 36, spoke about the first time she met her manager/hubby Tee Billz (Tunji Balogun).
Narrating her encounter with him she confessed that she thought he was a bit rude when she first had a meeting with him.
It was a few years ago in Los Angeles during a Timaya concert that Tiwa Savage met Tee Billz. Prior to that she had sent him e-mails of her music but Tee Billz who was managing Sinzu (Sauce Kid) at the time did not reply. “I sent him my music and he didn’t listen to it” said Tiwa Savage.
When Tiwa Savage saw him, she boldly went up to him and asked why he didn’t respond her mails.
After talking at the concert, the future lovers met the next day and Tiwa Savage played her CD for him. He told her to move to Nigeria but she was skeptical at first.
Tee Billz also bluntly told Tiwa Savage who was a tom-boy at that time to lose weight, wax her eyebrows, and use make-up.
“I thought he was a bit rude” said Tiwa Savage when Tee Billz told her to change her image. She didn’t call Tee Billz for a long time until one day she reached out to him for management.
