Wizkid and Tiwa Savage
Nigerian musician and mother of one, Tiwa Savage has finally broken her silence on allegations that she was secretly dating fellow musician, Wizkid.
The duo were rumoured to be dating after they were seen together getting emotional and cozy in several pictures that surfaced online.
Reacting while speaking to Soundcity radio 98.5, Tiwa dismissed the allegation stating that the relationship between the two wasn’t romantic in any way and that the two have never had such an interaction.
She added that she ignored all the rumours surrounding the two and that there was no pressure on her: “I heard all sorts of stories about Wizkid and I, but I chose to ignore them.
“At a point, people said I was dating Humblesmith; later they mentioned another (artiste?). How long will I continue to debunk these rumours. I have been in the music industry for quite a while and I have grown a thick skin, so certain rumours or insinuations don’t get to me again.”
She also refused to be drawn into commenting on her failed marriage with Teebillz saying that it was too sensitive a topic to talk about on Air; “Marriage is a very sensitive matter that I would not want to delve into at this time. Whatever I say now might be taken by the other party in another way. More so, I respect TeeBlliz and our son. I don’t think it is proper to be discussing this matter on air,”
Tiwa Savage was also disapproving of the comparisons to Beyonce that she gets a lot and said they are different entities.
She said: “I wish people could stop comparing me to Beyonce. I respect her because she’s about the best female artiste in the world, but I don’t think I want to be like her. I would rather like to be myself. There is no basis for me to be like her or anyone. I don’t know why people think I am obsessed with her. I want to be on my lane and be known as Tiwa Savage, not Beyonce.”
