Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage, says her relationship status was not a community project in response to rumours of a romance between her and musician Wizkid.
Wizkid and Tiwa Savage set tongues wagging with the release of the steamy video, Fever, on Wednesday.
Tiwa on her Instagram page @tiwasavage said, “Your relationship does not need to make sense to anyone except you and your partner. It’s a relationship, not a community project.”
Some Nigerians, especially on Twitter, took the video as a confirmation of the long-standing relationship rumours between Tiwa Savage and Wizkid.
One of her Instagram followers, Emmanuellaobaje, wrote: “Haba Tiwa you are old enough to be Wizkid’s mom, which one is being a bestie with someone old enough to be your son… ”
The reactions also threw jabs at the erstwhile relationship between Tiwa Savage and her ex-husband Tunji Balogun aka Teebillz, especially as he had debunked the rumours in September.
NAN reports that after Teebillz and Tiwa Savage split in 2016, dating rumours between her and Wizkid intensified with several heartfelt posts about both of them flying around various social media platforms.
Although Wizkid has never openly dispelled the rumour, Tiwa Savage has denied it on several occasions.
However, the ‘Fever’ video has heightened the suspicion.
