Video: Tiwa’s hubby, Teebillz opens up on plans to commit suicide, depression


In 2016, it took the grace of God and friends to stop Tiwa Savage‘s husband, Tunji Balogun (Teebillz), from committing suicide after suffering depression.

Under the influence of alcohol, the music executive went on social media to rubbish his wife. Things later became messier as Tiwa also granted a revealing interview. But the couple has found a way to come back together.


In a recent interview with Linda Ikeji TV, Teebillz revealed all that he went through and how it got to the level of wanting to commit suicide.

He said, “Depression is a state of mind. I can only speak from my own experience. You start losing interest in a lot of things like your normal daily activities and approach to things you do changes. It will be difficult for you to sleep and concentrate. Depression has different stages depending on how deep it is. A lot of people are depressed, but they don’t know. From your behavioural pattern, you can tell and sometimes depressed people pretend to be the happiest people on earth. You see people smiling but dying inside.

“It got to a point I didn’t want to be around people; I just wanted to be alone. I was so messed up that I wasn’t myself. I was always alone and I tried to use things like alcohol. Depression is a difficult thing and I know many people out there go through it.

“Tunji then was someone who lost his mind. When I go back to the things that happened then, it is hard to believe it was me. People who know me knew that something was wrong with me, but they could not understand. I was still able to do normal stuff and pretended things were okay.”
