It’ll be exactly 5 weeks this Thursday, since that now infamous Instagram rant by TeeBillz that set off a chain reaction threatening his wife, Tiwa Savage‘s career.
But there was apparently no reason for fear.
For the Mavin First Lady, it has been 5 fantastic weeks.
Here are 5 incredible things that have happened to her career in last 5 weeks.
- Pepsi backing
Hardly, do companies especially global corporations want any of their brands to be associated with bad press or controversy.
It’s bad for business.
However, Pepsi in all its glory decided to stick with Tiwa Savage, even issuing a statement standing firm behind her.
This, in itself was a major win for Tiwa – it emphasizes the power of that brand.
2. Fanbase boost in numbers
One would have said with the accusations of her infidelity by TeeBillz, she was going to lose quite a huge number of her fans. This, after all, is a woman who sings about love.
Nevertheless, with her Pulse interview where she solidly defended herself against such accusations, Tiwa’s numbers across her fanbase increased as her social media numbers went through the roof.
After easing her way back to social media, she announced that her Facebook followers had hit a million.
Her Twitter account now has 1.45million followers.
Her Instagram account now boasts of 1.6 million followers.
3. If I Start To Talk‘s ravaging success
Before now, If I start To Talk was not really the fan favourite on her RED album but since the video – released a day before TeeBillz’s IG rant – of course. It is now the stuff of memes.
Tiwa has hammered.
According to Play Data, in 2 weeks, the song became the number 2 most played song on Radio in Lagos, making it the fastest rising song on radio.
By the 4th week post her crisis, the video rose to one million views.
And we are counting.
4. Wizkid collaboration
As the diva stated, it had long been overdue. Tiwa Savage posted pictures last week Thursday from her the set of her video shoot with Wizkid.
Although the two have a song titled Bad, which was on the later-released deluxe version of RED, she might be working on a fresh material with the starboy.
5. Headlining the One Africa concert
Tiwa Savage announced the date of United States of America tour which she will be going on in July, 2016.
She also announced that he will be headlining one of the biggest African music shows in the US- the One Africa concert in New York while on tour in July.
Think about it. Just two weeks ago, some people thought this young woman was finished.
But they didn’t reckon with her willpower. And her. Force of nature her.
