It's confirmed! After months of denial and hiding, R&B-Pop singer Tiwa Savage and her manager Tunji 'Tee Billz' are now officially engaged!

Tee Billz made a formal proposal to Tiwa Savage on February 5, 2013, her birthday, and just nine days before Valentine's Day. The romantic moment was witnessed by a few celebrity friends, including Tiwa's Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy, Dr SID, Banky W, Beat FM Personality Toolz and several others.

The pair had consistently denied the relationship, and when marriage rumours surfaced weeks ago, their denials became even more vehement. But the past few days proved they had gotten tired of living a lie, with photos and tweets from Lagos and Dubai confirming what they'd been trying to hide.

'I am not engaged and I am not dating Tee Billz. If I am, you would have seen a ring on my finger indicating that I am engaged. It's just a rumour', she told Encomium in December 2012.

But the rumours re-emerged when the pair flew to Dubai and checked into the luxurious Burj Al Arab Hotel, spending time together, taking boat cruises and seemingly enjoying a luxury couples vacation. Sources even suggested that Tiwa and Mr Balogun had gotten married, and that the Dubai trip was their honeymoon.

On the morning of February 5th, 2013, Tiwa's 34th birthday, Tee Billz reportedly updated his BlackBerry Messenger status to 'Happy birthday Mrs Billz.' Tiwa also posted two cakes on her Instagram page. The inscription on the first cake read 'Happy birthday Mrs Billz'.

'The power to deny their relationship grows weaker by the day, they are really in love with each other', a source close to the couple told us. 'Now that they have announced their status to everyone, the tension will cease.'

Congrats guys!
