Tiwa, wrote a quote on her profile, 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. 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
