There has been a serious tension in the air over the past few months as the rumored affair between legendary music star TIWA SAVAGE and ever grooving music sensation WIZKID struck a pose on stage during a live coop performance. A little more light has been shed on this happening. In an interview with a reliable source, Tiwa Savage got to talk about how she has been able to handle the rumored relationship between Wizkid and herself. “We are friends definitely. To be honest, I think I have been in this industry for a long time; I have grown a thick skin so comments like that, genuinely, honestly don’t bother me that much. I am kinda used to it. Today is humble smith, tomorrow it’s Wiz, it’s just what it is, it’s part of the job,” she said. When asked about her relationship with ex-husband, TeeBillz and if she had any advice for anyone married, Tiwa declined to answer saying it was a very sensitive issue because of the parties involved which include her son.
Over the last few months, the relationship between Wizkid and Tiwa Savage has been a front burner in every major soft sell magazine and news website. It all started off as a rumour and later we began to see hints which kind of built a story behind their relationship. A few months ago, Tiwa Savage and Wizkid got everyone talking when a video of the two spotted in a position which got everyone thinking if they were kissing. In a now-viral video, the two were spotted in a club in Ghana with a number of friends partying with the two all loved up. In the video, you can see Tiwa getting really close to the ‘Star Boy’ while they were vibing to Reekado Banks‘ song ‘Like’ which features Tiwa Savage, and Voila! It looks like they kissed for a few seconds. Well, the guys around them didn’t look surprised maybe because the kiss was very brief or they had seen them do it before. Wizkid’s romantic link with Tiwa Savage intensifies at O2 Arena. It is no longer news that Wizkid sold out the 20,000 capacity O2 Arena in London some weeks ago, what is news is his continuous frolicking with Tiwa Savage. During his electrifying performance, he stopped the show midway to bring Mummy Jam Jam on stage to perform their hit collaboration song, ‘Malo.’
It wasn’t the normal introduction of a co-star, as the singer called Tiwa Savage “Someone special” which got a lot of cheers from the crowd. He also added, “Stay sexy for daddy.

SIMI & ADEKUNLE GOLD Modern Day Firytale
Fairytales are real has proven by music icons SIMI and ADEKUNLE GOLD as they both tied the knot to their happy ever after.
There has been a stereotype going around that celebrity couples always marry for the fame or are unable to find true love and better yet keep a good and lasting relationship
But these two have been able to prove it wrong as they keep their love life private until really close to their wedding, I believe this way they were able to ward off home wreckers and save their happiness.
Only two weeks ago, the two artistes were tying the knot in a lowkey-planned wedding ceremony that only 300 people got to attend. The pictures and clips from that traditional wedding were also so, so limited to the frustration of many fans who would have wanted to share their big day with them in any form.
There was also news of a white wedding to be held in a beach but even though that also held, not a single photo or clip came out of it… until now.
With the release of ‘Promise,’ Adekunle Gold and Simi look to finally be sharing some parts of that super-intimate beach wedding with us.
The music video, released on Youtube shows interspersed clips of the singers intimately conversing, riding on quad bikes in slow-motion, laughing heartily at their private jokes, embracing each other warmly, dancing late into the night in their wedding costumes and also drenching each other in a pool while still fully clothed in their all white wedding clothes.
With Adekunle Gold asking for a promise that Simi would ride with him till the “sun goes down”and Simi’s beautiful voice echoing lines like “I’ll ride with you till we’re 144” and “mo fe b’imo meji, will you be the father?” it is obvious that this is Adekunle Gold and Simi finally opening the door, albeit just a little and on their own terms, to allow fans into their love-filled world.
