We all love romantic stories. Today we are going back a few years to Tiwa Savage’s proposal.

In 2010 Tiwa Savage came into the Nigerian industry. She quickly made her mark with her single ‘Kele Kele Love’ and with a solid follow up ‘Love Me 3X’. Using her sex appeal as her calling card Tiwa Savage made a lane for herself in the music scene.

Helping her up the ladder was her manager Tunji ‘Tee Billz’ Balogun. Tiwa Savage met Tee Billz in the United States when he was managing Nigerian rapper Sinzu then known as Sauce Kid.

At this time Tiwa Savage was contemplating moving back to Nigeria to launch her music career. She heard of Tee Billz from a friend and after e-mailing him several times with no reply she decided to meet him one on one.

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 sceptical at first.

He later convinced and told to do a beauty make over so that she could be more appealing. This time Tiwa Savage was sort of a tom boy. “I thought he was a bit rude” Tiwa Savage told Pulse TV in an exclusive interview in February, 2016.
