Tunji Balogun aka TeeBillz, husband of music star Tiwa Savage is opening up about finding a new purpose and pushing ahead. From his depression state – almost commiting suicide following marital crisis in April 2016, TeeBillz is talking his journey through rehabilitation and becoming a better man.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, he opened up about having to use his experience and new found knowledge in Christ to save lives.
His words; “The way I handle things now is completely different from how I acted in the past. I do better now because I know better. If I had gone through the experience before now, it probably wouldn’t make sense to me until I go through some challenging situations. But I thank God that I have been able to overcome all those through the guidance of my coach.
“I only recently understand what it means to have a purpose in life. I have saved many people from committing suicide even though I don’t come out to say it. I was suicidal myself but God preserved me so I could also save others. I just realised that He kept me to touch the lives of others. People surely have their opinion about me and the entire issue, but God sees my heart and knows how much of a new man I am.
“I am like Job in the Bible, God made me pass through all these challenges to make me a better person. I am only human, just like everyone else, so I am not immune to committing mistakes. My experience can be likened to a battle between evil and good. I am happy God redeemed me and pushed me on the side of good.
“I am not being religious, I am just grateful to Him for giving me a renewed mindset. This is one of the biggest things coaching has done to me.”
Asked if those he called friends stood by him during his moment of trial, the father of one did not waste time in giving his response: “God is the only friend I have.”
Tunji and Tiwa got wedded in November 2013 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The couple is blessed with a son – Jamil.
