Nigeria singer, Tiwa Savage, has applauded the contribution of her ex-husband, who she has been separated in her career, which she described as a game changer for her.
The Marvin queen shared her thought on her instagram page @tiwasavage, as she shared a post on one of her favorite throwback clips.
Tiwa who acknowledged the progress she has made so far, said she was embarrassed about her looks before stardom.
“Been seeing a lot of old clips of me today singing, while I cringe at how I looked in most of them.
“I love this particular one because I remember feeling lost and alone in LA at the time and was deciding on moving back to Naija 10 years ago.
“3/4 years later I moved and boy it’s been an incredible journey.” she said.
However, a fan in her comment section reminded her of the impact of Tee Billz in her “incredible journey”, stating @wunmi_lil all glory to God for using Tee Billz to kick start that ‘journey’.
“It can only get better dear, more grace”.
In her response Tiwa said: “Yes, God bless him”.
In a related development, after deleting his account almost a year ago, Tee Billz recently returned to the social media platform.
He uploaded a post highlighting some regrets while also pleading with fans to show him how to use Instagram again.
“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.
“When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins.
“At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened”. he said.
In 2016, Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz marriage hit the rock as a result of some series of issues.
Meanwhile, Tiwa Savage on the 2nd of December would be headlining the Global Citizen Festival set to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Shill will be sharing the stage with the likes of Jay-z, Beyonce, Wizkid, Femi Kuti and D’banj and others to raise funds to end extreme poverty.

Business Mogul Aliko Dangote Expresses Need For New Wife, Reveals More About His Person And Plans
Renowned Nigerian Business Mongul, Aliko Dangote has revealed that at 61, he is not getting any younger, and he is willing to take on a new wife.
In an interview with David Piling of Financial Times (FT) the multi-billionaire, who is Africa’s richest man, revealed some important details about his private life.
Dangote who talked tall about his ambitions to buy Arsenal Football club after successfully leading Nigeria’s oil refining revolution, revealed that he is on the lookout for a new bride.
The Founder of Dangote Group of Companies who is twice divorced and has three grown-up daughters, notes that that his schedule is inhibiting romance: “I’m not getting younger. Sixty years is no joke. But it doesn’t make sense to go out and get somebody if you don’t have the time. Right now, things are really, really very busy, because we have the refinery, we have the petrochemicals, we have the fertiliser, we have the gas pipeline.”
But he agrees that he needs to “calm down a bit”.
FASTSING HELPS CLEAN YOUR SYSTEM SAYS DANGOTE
The Man with the largest food chains in the country, says he fasts at least once a week?explaining that “it helps to clean your system”.
TAKES MORE THAN 100 CALLS A DAY
As expected, Dangote has a very busy schedule, but who would have guessed that he may also be one of Africa’s busiest, taking over 100 calls per day.
Speaking of his relationship with Tony Blair, former British prime minister, Dangote says Blair only makes three calls per day. But he has to battle with scores, and tonnes of emails.
About his mails, he says: “you try to be polite and reply but they come back to you with a longer email, not minding that here is a very, very busy person”.
“Look Aliko, the world is not going to fall apart if you don’t answer your phone,” Dangote says of his golden advise from Blair.
NIGERIA TO BE THE LARGEST EXPORTER OF PETROLEUM PRODUCT
The serial-entrepreneur says once his $12 billion refinery is done, Nigeria will for the first time in her history, become Africa’s biggest exporter of petroleum products.
“When we finish this project, for the first time in history Nigeria will be the largest exporter of petroleum products in Africa,” he said.
NIGERIA IS TOUGH; ONLY THE TOUGHEST SURVIVE
Just like a typical Business man with many chains of businesses , Dangote noted that says only toughest of the tough survives in Africa’s largest economy.
He said y with his new refinery, he is out to make new enemies, stating that “you can’t just come and remove food from their table and think they’re just going to watch you doing it”.
“They will try all sorts of tricks. This is a very, very tough society. Only the toughest of the tough survive here”.
NIGERIA NEEDS DRACONIAN POLICY TO STOP MILK IMPORTATION
The Kano-born billionaire is not happy with Nigeria’s inability to produce what she eats, locally, and wants some hard policies to stop importation of some products.
“What Nigeria needs is to produce locally what we can produce locally. Nigeria still imports vegetable oil, which makes no sense. Nigeria still imports 4.9m tonnes of wheat, which does not make sense,” the $14-billion-man said.
“Nigeria still imports 97 or 98 per cent of the milk that we consume. The government needs to bring out a draconian policy to stop people importing milk, just like they did with cement.”
STILL OUT TO BUY ARSENAL
Dangote is not a man known to give up on his dreams, and his dreams about Arsenal Football Club will not be different, he reveals.
“I love Arsenal and I will definitely go for it,” he told FT, adding that the club should be worth about $2bn.
Speaking as the owner of the club, Dangote said he would involve himself in rebuilding the team — “chipping in my own advice”.
“When I buy it, I have to bring it up to the expectations of our supporters,” he said, stating that his refinery is priority now. “Once I have finished with that headache, I will take on football,” he concludes.
