Singer’s pop singer Tiwa Savage has been in the news for some weeks after estranged husband and former manager, Teebillz went public with nasty allegations against his wife. The pop diva responded with a damning 45-minute video published on YouTube in which she denied allegations of infidelity and also provided some nasty details about her husband.
Journalists from The Sun newspaper decided it was a good idea to visit the Richmond Gate Estate in high-brow Lekki, where the Mavin Records singer lives with her son – without an invitation and demand to see the songstress.
Not, exactly, the most brilliant way of getting a press interview.
According to reports, the security men at the estate gate approached the journalists and demanded to know who they wanted to see. The security men were said to have turned hostile after the journalists disclosed that they were on a mission to see Tiwa.
The security men then demanded they called whosoever they wanted to see before they would be allowed entrance into the estate.
He said: “Oga, you can’t see anyone in this estate except you call the person on phone and he or she must tell us to allow you in.
“Every occupant has their instruction and Tiwa Savage has given us instruction not to let anybody that comes to look for her into the estate without her permission.”
Determined to accomplish their mission, the crew reportedly opened a conversation with a middle-aged man to know if Tiwa was really a resident of the estate.
He said: “I am allowed to enter this estate because I work there. Tiwa Savage stays here but I haven’t seen her since the information about her marriage crisis went viral on the internet. I got to know about it like every other person.
“I saw her with her husband in December last year inside a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV. Her husband was driving the vehicle out of the estate. Sometimes when I see her, I will wave at her and she would wave back. Apart from that, I don’t have a personal relationship with her.
“Tiwa Savage is not the only artiste staying in this estate. We have Iyanya, Timaya, MI, AY (comedian) and others living here. Even TuFace Idibia has a house here and his wife, Annie Macaulay comes here regularly.
“Some occupants of the estate bought land and built duplexes on it while others bought semi-detached duplex from the company that manages the estate.”
Tiwa Savage has been in the news for sometime following the crash of her two-year-old marriage to her husband, Tunji ‘Teebillz’ Balogun, who took to Instagram to share shocking details of the union.
The union which was reportedly marred by abuse, produced a son, Jamil, who was born in July 2015.
