I made a mistake marrying Tunji Balogun and 20 other explosive revelations – Tiwa Savage finally tells it all in new video interview!

Tiwa Savage cries during interview on Teebillz.
Nigerian pop singer, Tiwa Savage, 36, in a video exclusively obtained by Pulse Nigeria has addressed her husband’s shocking allegations made yesterday, Thursday, April 28, 2016.
Tiwa Savage cries during interview on Teebillz.

The singer had quite a lengthy chat with
Pulse TV in which she talks about the fact that she was recently
pregnant again but she lost the baby. She also adds that she knew her
marriage was over for a while. She says when things started (two months
ago) she didn’t know whether to keep up appearances or let the world
know.
The video is heartbreaking because it confirms that the couple (Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz) will probably be finding their way individually henceforth.
She talks about how she found out about
the Instagram posts from a friend and how she was woken up from sleep to
hear all about what had been posted on Instagram. According to her, her
first thought was that maybe they found him dead. She says that when
she heard that nobody could find him her initial thought was that “We
need to find him. He might be suicidal.”.
She didn’t even know the extent of what
he had said until much later. Tiwa Savage explains that her phones were
taken away from her and she was just scared for his life.
Tiwa Savage categorically denies every cheating on her husband…”and Tunji knows this” she adds.

Watch the video below

and if you don’t have enough data to, here are edited quotes of her interview below.

 
  1. When
    I woke up, I thought they found him dead. My first thought was that we
    need to find him, he is suicidal, and we need to make sure he is alive. I
    didn’t even know what he had said. Someone took my phone from me, they
    don’t want me to see what was said online. I was just sacred for his
    life.
  2. At around 10 and 11, Banky
    W’s Mum and his family were praying, and we got the call that he was
    found in Lekki, and that he has been taken to Banky’s House.
  3. For
    the past two months, TJ and I have not been together, it was something
    we were working through, but I knew this marriage would not work.
  4. I haven’t spoke to TJ in about a week,
    and we were supposed to get some passports for my son. He was reading
    the messages and he wasn’t responding. I begged him to be friends, and
    let’s be good parents to Jamil. He didn’t respond.
  5. I
    covered up for a lot of hurt in our relationship. Just before I went to
    Jamaica, I found out that I was pregnant. We were just trying to find
    out how we were going to manage another baby so soon. I got to London,
    on a 10-hour flight to shoot a video with Busy Signal (Reggae Artiste).
    While doing my makeup,  I found out I was bleeding and I passed out. I
    was rushed to the hospital, and we were trying to call TJ to tell him
    what happened. While we were sleeping at two AM a number called him
    saved as Edible Catering….I checked his phone, and the number was asking
    him if she can come to his hotel. She responded that He (TJ) knocked
    her out last night, that he was a great night. I confronted him, and he
    said he took another woman to the hotel and said they were just
    chilling. This happened the period I was in Jamaica, and I was in the
    hospital. I sent TJ pictures, and he was busy with another woman. I was
    in ahospital and you couldn’t be bothered find out what happened to me. I
    packed my stuff, took my son and went to my friends house, her name is
    Tiwa also. I stayed the night, and she asked me for the next step, I
    told her I was done.
  6. I covered
    up for so long because I wanted people to believe that TJ is the one
    that takes care of me, TJ is the head of the house…I wanted him to be
    the head of the house. I covered up so much.
  7. TJ
    has not spent one Naira, I paid for hospital bills, his flight, his
    accommodation, we also went shopping for TJ so that he will have new
    things. His excuse was that Í don’t have money’. I had to pay for
    everything so that he can go out and hustle, and get the contracts. He
    didn’t have money for diapers, but he had money to have a bi-weekly
    haircut, had money to pay for his laundry, had money to take a woman to
    the hotel.
  8. His cooking
    allegations is a lie. I am not going to say because of my career that I
    am not going to cook. I work long hours to put money in the house, I
    work to make sure that we have a roof over our house. I come back home
    really late, and when I make something for myself, I make some for TJ. I
    had to hire a cook to cook for me, him and the other people that live
    in the house, I don’t think that is wrong…Even if it is true, the things
    he puts me through will not even encourage me to ask him if he is
    hungry. He goes out and you come home at 7 in the morning, sometime 2pm.
    He comes back drunk, he comes back angry, and we don’t know what sort
    of mood he is in. Sometimes TJ will go out and he will not call, and he
    will not tell him. I am just sacred for his safety, I will be calling
    him frantically, to find out that he didn’t go and drink. I am even
    praying that he is with another woman, so that at least I know that he
    is alive. That’s not the person that I will ask if he has eaten.
  9. When
    I sacked him as my manager – I will never discredit or take away that
    TJ worked hard, hustled and believed in me. But what I will say is that
    at one point….he is booking events and he will book shows. The first
    time I found out that there was foul play was when he booked me for a
    wedding in London. I have to be paid before I perform. I called one of
    the organisers, and said I have not been paid. He said that the show has
    been paid four months ago, he showed me the account were they paid him.
    TJ declared that the show was for 3M but they really paid 4.5M, out of
    the 3M he was still receiving the management fee 40%. He took money
    already, and collected his percentage, and he didn’t feel anything. He
    was stealing from his wife. I had to perform at the wedding for free. I
    do get to perform for free when he takes my money.
  10. My
    mum is based in the UK, and when I had Jamil she moved back to Nigeria
    with us. My mother is not like that (witchcraft), she is a sweet lady,
    and she’s very British, she doesn’t judge, she is not hung up like that.
    A lot of times, my mom would say ‘Tiwa you are the wife, be patient,
    don’t curse don’t shout, build the home.’ She has been nothing but a
    great support for me. I would love for him to tell me if there is
    something my mother has done.
  11. I
    have never cheated on my husband. Not with Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, 2face
    Idibia or anybody. I have never cheated on my husband, and Tunji knows
    this. He knows that in his heart. (She breaks down in tears) Sometimes
    in the studio, one of the things that Don Jazzy and some of my other
    label mates say is that I am really good with interviews, with being
    diplomatic and knowing how to carry myself with difficult situations.
    This hurts. I have seen comments of what people are saying about me. It
    is not true.
  12. I know that for
    every human being when your father’s ways are not straight, it will
    bother you. Since I sacked him from my management, he has been
    struggling financially. He was stealing from me, so I had to save my
    marriage and separate business from family. TJ wants to keep up with the
    Joneses, he wants to live a life that is not true. He went to buy a
    car, a Mercedes that he knew that he didn’t have the money for it. The
    person kept up calling that he wants the balance. I ended up paying the
    balance of over 3M. When it was time to pay, I put the money in his
    account, so they don’t know I was the person paying for it. He also
    bought a Rolex, and didn’t pay the balance. They threaten to go to the
    press, and to protect my name, I will have to pay for it. He goes to
    clubs and leaves the tabs for me, and I have to pay for him. He is
    putting us in debt.
  13. What set off
    all off this was that he went to borrow 45 million Naira from someone
    and he lost it. I just found out that EFCC was investigating a case
    against him, and my brother called me from London and confirmed it that
    TJ is in deep trouble, and that some people might hurt him, that I
    should be careful. In my frantic mode to try and suppress this situation
    I went to one of my big bros who can help. A week ago I told TJ that we
    were running out of Jamil’s food, but he didn’t do nothing. He
    complains, but cuts his hair twice a week. I have been searching for
    N45M so that they don’t kill him, so that they EFCC does not carry him.
    What kind of man does that, and says I am the one taking away his
    manhood.
  14. I walked in on TJ
    taking cocaine in my house in 1004 (Victoria Island, Lagos). I didn’t
    even know he takes cocaine. I walked into the kitchen, and I saw him
    taking cocaine, so I screamed, and asked if that is cocaine. HE started
    screaming that ‘What am I doing down here, where is the cocaine?’ How
    can someone without money take cocaine? I called his parents and
    complained that I can deal with weed, but cocaine, no. So I am dealing
    with his alcohol problem, you come home late, infidelity, coaciane, bad
    debt, jealousy over my success.
  15. Before
    marriage, Idin’t know of his third child in Nigeria. A lot of people
    warned me about him, but I am going to say I made a mistake. At the
    beginning everyone says you can’t leave the marriage because our culture
    frowns on it. I made a mistake, do I have to wait ten years, 15 years?
    If I am not happy. And I was scared that if I ever find somebody else to
    marry me? That’s the msiconceptions of our society. I don’t care if I
    ever get married again. I care about being happy for Jamil, I care about
    not walking on eggshells. I do want a man that works, that will help me
    with my financial burden. He doesn’t have to be a millionaire or
    billionaire, but at least someone that helps, and won’t put me in more
    debt.
  16. Everyday all I hear from TJ is that ‘I created you, I took you from nothing, look at you now.
  17. The
    marriage is finally over, it’s been over for a while, and I have
    covered up for a while. What happened was God-sent, and he made it
    easier for me to walk away with what he did on social media. He got so
    many people angrier, he pulled so many innocent people into this. Even
    his family. He made it easy for me to finally up and walk away.
  18. I
    will never stop hum from seeing Jamil, never. Even today, Jamil is
    still saying ‘dadada’, and I was saying it with him as well, that’s his
    first word. I want to bring him up to be a good man.
  19. Even
    till now I don’t wish anything bad on him. As we are doing this
    interview, I am worried that if he sees it, it might trigger him to do
    something bad. I don’t want my son to grow up and know, God forbid, that
    his father commited suicide. Tonight, I am still gonna pray for him.
  20. He
    was getting help at one point when the whole cocaine thing came out.
    This has been happening for a long time. We get him helpo and he goes to
    see a doctor or a pastor, or a counsellor and he uses his own hands to
    ruin things again. If I didn’t care about him, I wouldn’t be covering up
    for a lot of things. I wouldn’t be searching for help for him. Even now
    I am still searching for a way to help him out of his debt, so that if
    he is out of this,
  21. If there is
    anything that maybe I overlooked, or didn’t love him enough, or made him
    less of a man, then I am sorry. I am absolutely sorry…Tunji I am sorry.
    But you know I tried everything, you know I love you so much, and I am
    sorry, I never wanted to divorce, and I never wanted it to get to this. I
    want you to get better…and I would always pray for you.
