The delectable Tiwa Savage in a chat with cool FM this morning reveals that true to speculations, her wave making song ” Kele-Kele” was inspired by a painful heart break she experienced in the hand of a handsome dude back in the days.
Tiwa said the guy was not treating their relationship with seriousness, as he would turn up late for appointments and not call for several days running into weeks, basically taking her love for granted.
According to the beautiful singer, she is so over the heartbreak and has used Kele-Kele as a medium to make that fact clear to the good looking heart-ripper.
Born Tiwatope Savage, the Kele kele love crooner, hails from Lagos Island (Isale Eko) and moved to the United kingdom in her twenties to further her education. She later moved to the US in pursuit of a music career. She says despite the gift of a beautiful voice, she has had to put in a lot of hard work, going through difficult times without means and a place to stay, having to put up at a women centre in the states for a while.
In the past, she has written songs for international artistes such as Fantasia, (the album was nominated for the Grammies) Monica, Baby face, Maya, boyz 2men, Akon etc.
According to her, she has no plan to return to the states. All she wants to do for now is to really develop her stuff here in Nigeria and dig into the Nigerian market.
