Wizkid And Tiwa Savage, A Matter Of Cultural Clash

Wizkid And Tiwa Savage

  • Wizkid and Tiwa Savage had a  relationship that broke norms, many considered the standard.

Wizkid and Tiwa Savage belong to the category of Nigerian celebrities that make up the elitist group of famous Nigerian singers out there.

And together they have made headlines. Headlines that have seen many call them out for what many consider a matter of fornication and disrespect.

Tiwa Savage was married to Tee Billz. They have a child together and after years of marriage, called it quits. With Mr. Tee Billz obviously the loosing party in the whole arrangement.

That was years ago and it was just another sad celebrity couple crash, that was eventually kicked under the carpet and forgotten.

Not until last year when rumours broke out about Wizkid becoming the Zaddy in her life.

Almost immediately that silent but dominant African side to things was revealed and Tiwa Savage became an harlot overnight.

Her crime!

That she had the nerve to date someone younger than her and even worse, that younger lover being part of the larger circle that included Tee Billz.

Many hypocrites chanted, Fornication! Adultery! While a great others were of the opinion that the Wizkid and Tiwa Savage love story is just one of many sexual adventures Tiwa Savage has been known to engage in.

But whatever the back story, the fact remains that Wizkid and Tiwa Savage celebrated in public a love story that many Nigerians weren’t in support of.

Since divorcing Tee Billz, Tiwa Savage has managed to remain one of the most successful divorced Nigerian female celebrities. Especially when viewed from where she stands in the music industry.

At one point Tee Billz came online and tried as much as possible to downplay the brewing romance between his wife and Wizkid.

According to him.

“Whether you like it or not Ayo is my little brother and he knows not to cross me on blood Gang. We don’t play that shit on 400 blocks! That’s my little Nigga.

“My Big Homie Sauce kid aka Sinzu guaranteed me on that even though he’s my blood. I’m just saying this to the general public that tends to come at me on some disrespectful Shit!!!

“For your information! Thank you Titi for respecting me! Your opinions on her and my lil bro (Wizkid) is bullshit! Don Jazzy will never allow that!

“Tiwa gets mad me at me on my own P but she will never put me down like that! So F**K your opinion @tiwasavage @wizkidayo keep giving us that vibe Musically. It’s all Entertainment and Style.

“Show me your evidence that Tiwa f**ked Wizkid. She better be f**king with Femi Otedola, Aliko Dangote, Or Mr Adeleke Aka Baba Olowo!!!. If you are not in that category then F**K YOU..and at the end of the day my hustle will match on with my responsibilities in my kids names !!! But 4real on Jamil#!!!!! Tiwa will never disrespect me like That!!! F**K your opinion on them!!!! @tiwasavage@wizkidayo keep giving us that. Congratulations blood @wizkidayoon The NIKE thanks for putting Naija On the Map’ #Blessings”

It is now fact that Wizkid was actually and is still bedding Tiwa Savage.

1. Was It About Age Or Culture?

“Small Wizkid is who she is now dating” suddenly became a common statement.

But if you know who Wizkid is then you know, he is not at all small especially when measured by the size of his pockets.

It is therefore safe to state that their discontent emanated from a different angle.

A place of culture.

It is a thing here in Africa and Nigeria in particular, that women go into relationships with older men. A man that is her senior is always the preferred choice.

And this was the first rule the Wizkid and Tiwa Savage relationship broke. They went against a general norm and the rebuke was swift.

Wizkid was born on 16 July 1990, while Tiwa Savage was born on 5th February 1980. There is almost a decade between them.

For many Nigerians she was just to old for the kid and he was just too small for her. The age difference was a barrier no one expected Tiwa Savage to break but she did.

And for doing that, she became the perfect example of a Sugar Mummy. A woman that left her husband so she can bed young men too young to be her lover.

It was an age issue made worse by a culture that doest not support old women choosing a younger male.

An age and cultural issue blown out of proportion by those self appointed moral judges. Those hypocrites that might even be responsible for a more uglier sexual situation.

The thing is, we shall never know.

2. A Female Divorcee Is A No Go Area

Another factor that militated against the Wizkid and Tiwa Savage romance is the fact that she was once a married woman.

The moment a woman becomes a divorcee, that is the moment half of her sexual value is subtracted to her disadvantage.

It is expected that the female divorcee gets less admiration and sexual advances than was the case before marriage.

It is almost like a stigma!

It is a sad fact that when a marriage breaks up in Nigeria, it is almost the case that the woman is declared the reason behind the failed marriage.

She is either a witch or a whore that would not allow her husband the true privileges of a married life.

This was also similar to what Tiwa Savage had to endure during her divorce saga with her husband.

It is therefore against their perception of justice that a woman with a failed marriage is allowed another chance at love and happiness.

So it was a mighty shock to some Nigerians that Wizkid with all his fame would decide to get involved with a divorcee, who is a single mother.

Somehow it has become a matter of women from broken marriages, expected to get the worse of the bunch when it comes to men or romance.

That is now the thought.

They somehow misused their chance and must now be willing to accept only the remnants. That is after the single ladies with no marriage oaths on their timeline yet, must have picked their choice.

This was not the case with Wizkid and Tiwa Savage, and so it angered a lot of people.

For this set of Nigerians, it was not justice at all that she gets to find happiness, no matter how brief. Because according to them, there shouldn’t be a Perfect Second Chance.

And a solid sign of that imperfection, is their chants that would never stop.

3. Out Of Wedlock Romance Still An Issue

You might not hear it all the time. But culturally, out of wedlock romance is frowned at. Especially for a divorcee.

For a divorcee the only way romance is allowed is when a new marriage arrangement is crafted.

This is not the case with Wizkid and Tiwa Savage. We all knew that the relationship was always more about the passionate side of things, which is fleeting.

In Nigeria there is a ripe age for marriage and when a woman gets to that point. Marriage is a must!

Anything she does that is outside marriage but involves romance is viewed as wrong.

Many people had expected Tiwa Savage to go into a relationship with a more mature person. Some one that wants to settle down.

But by settling with Wizkid, it became obvious that the singer had her mind focused on getting pleasure than getting married, again!

Causing an unnecessary anger tantrums from Nigerians, who are now very certain that all Tiwa Savage wants, after a failed marriage is to live the “Promiscuous Life”.

Conclusively, culture is a very solid factor that can affect the longevity of how we feel and the kind of relationship we can maintain.

But no matter the crowd and dissenting voices, may out love story be filled with triumph, always.
