Talent manager Teebillz, known for his previous staunch defense of Nigerian artists Naira Marley and Zinoleesky on social media, has issued an apology in response to a significant online backlash.
Teebillz, the former husband and manager of renowned singer Tiwa Savage, had initially criticized the prevailing cancel culture and called for Nigerians to forgive Naira Marley, who was allegedly involved in a dispute with Mohbad prior to the latter’s tragic demise.
His defense of Naira Marley and Zinoleesky stirred widespread outrage among numerous Nigerians, leading to a flurry of disapproving posts on social media platforms.
However, it appears that the vehement reaction from the online community has prompted Teebillz to reassess his stance.
In a recent turn of events, Teebillz posted a statement on his social media accounts, expressing sincere remorse for the insensitivity of his previous post. He acknowledged any offense he may have caused and clarified that his intention was never to belittle anyone’s feelings or viewpoints.
Instead, he emphasized his desire to extend help and support to the young artists. Teebillz underscored the importance of mental health in the context of Mohbad’s untimely passing and expressed his commitment to fostering a more understanding and supportive environment for those in the industry.
In his words;
“I’m sincerely sorry for the insensitivity of my earlier post! I don’t mean to undermine anyone’s feelings or opinion… I just rather be of help to this young man than judging him based on association alongside being a product of his environment!!! MENTAL HEALTH played a major role in MOHBAD’s last days whether you agree with me or not! ZINO is definitely feeling the impact too mentally now!!! My heart also goes out to SOLID STAR…
