It appears this ‘Kele Kele’ star has found the light at the end of her tunnel having only just recently come out to the world about her failed marriage.
Tiwa Savage’s calm demure personality took a back seat for what was, to simply put it, a heart breaking interview which revealed just how deeply broken her marriage had been but that has quickly been overshadowed by news of her signing onto Jay Z’s ‘Roc Nation’ label.
The news have been floating around online as a rumor with some sites claiming it as official but nonetheless it is great news for the star who’d only just released her sophomore album.
It’s reported that Tiwa inked the deal last Week Wednesday after long talks but is yet to formally announce it herself.
It’s been the talk of the African entertainment scene. Last week, Tiwa Savage’s husband Tee Billz went on a social media rant calling his famous wife out for allegedly having affairs with the male singers in her record label Mavin Records.
The rant which triggered Tiwa Savage’s decision to end the marriage (as you can watch via this tearful interview of hers) caused quite the stir and although most of the male stars Tee had listed as some of the celebrities Tiwa cheated on him with chose not to respond, 2Face has.

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were slapped with a lawsuit by Marvin Gaye’s children for copying their song Blurred Lines from Marvin’s hit, (full story here), Jermaine Dupri claims Ciara’s “I Bet” is no different from Usher’s hit “U Got It Bad” and locally we may have some suspicion about Elani’s track, “Elani”.
If you listen to Elani’s “Nikupende” which was their first single from 2015 and Tiwa’s “Olorun mi” and especially the chorus, there’s little to no difference. Maybe they thought it would go unnoticed because compared to other Tiwa Savage songs, this wasn’t as popular.
I don’t know. I could be wrong but listen to the jams below and you decide.
Did Elani errr… copy Tiwa Savage? Drop your thoughts/comments below!
