Netizens raise eyebrows after Tiwa Savage’s ex brands her a ‘single mother’

Tunji Balogun, widely known as TeeBillz, has stirred discussion and divided opinions among fans after he shared a post on Instagram that some interpreted as a backhanded compliment to his ex-wife and Afrobeats sensation, Tiwa Savage.

In the Instagram post, TeeBillz extended praise to Tiwa Savage for her commendable efforts as a single mother. He shared a heartwarming photo of Tiwa and their son, Jamil, affectionately hugging.

TeeBillz acknowledged the demanding nature of being a single mother and stated that he feels fortunate for the soft and loving relationship he maintains with Tiwa, which enables them to co-parent effectively.

“When I see what other men go through! I can’t help but count my blessings! 4ever grateful to Mama J for making my relationship so soft with love…..! Even when I can’t afford….. She still presents me as a superman to my twin. Being a single mom is a heck of a job……! Grateful & Blessed. Highly appreciative Titi…” he wrote in his heartfelt post.

Tiwa Savage and TeeBillz were married in 2013 and welcomed their only child together in 2015. However, their union ended in 2016, and they went their separate ways.

The Instagram post by TeeBillz prompted a range of opinions from fans. Some praised him for acknowledging Tiwa’s efforts as a single mother and for maintaining a positive co-parenting relationship. They commended the maturity and respect demonstrated in his message.

Conversely, others felt that the words, although seemingly appreciative, carried an undertone of backhanded compliments or veiled criticism. They believed that such compliments should be straightforward and without any perceived hints of surprise or condescension.

The divided opinions reflect the complexities and sensitivities often involved in post-divorce or post-relationship communication, especially when it pertains to shared responsibilities, such as parenting.

The discussion surrounding TeeBillz’s message underscores the various ways in which individuals interpret and respond to such expressions.
