Though, they have consistently denied having an affair but the recent proposal of Tiwa Savage’s manager, Tunji Balogun is a culmination of a cross continental affair which took root when the pair met abroad, an insider has revealed.
The insider told The Entertainer that ever before Tiwa relocated to Nigeria, Tunji had been by her side and it was obvious that the relationship would not be a fling because he was deeply interested in building the singer into a world-class brand. “It was a typical Emma Ogosi/Evi Edna or Alec Godwin/Kefee situation. You come across an artiste who has so much raw talent and you want to build her into something. That’s what happened.
In fact, it was Tunji who persuaded a reluctant Tiwa to relocate to Nigeria and kick-start her career,” the source revealed. The source further added that Tunji has been the secret behind Tiwa’s success as he has invested in her career, shooting her videos and even recording Kele Kele Love, her debut single, which endeared her to Nigerians.
“You know it is lonely at the top and now that Tiwa is at the top of her game, she knows that one person she can count on is Tunji Balogun who was right there from the very beginning. Little wonder when he proposed last week, she was so happy,” the source concluded. Tunji Balogun also known as TeeBillz presented Tiwa Savage with an engagement ring last week Tuesday and now friends and fans can’t wait for the nuptials.
