Folly Coker denies affair with Tiwa Savage

23 October 2014, 17:32

Lagos - Folly Coker, the upwardly-mobile senior aide of Gov Babatunde Fashola, who was rumored to be dating sensational singer, Tiwa Savage, has described the tale as untrue.

Coker also described his alleged ownership of Mavin Records, supposedly owned by renowned producer, Don Jazzy, as a figment of the imagination of some idle minds and jobless individuals.

In the last few days, the rumour of Coker, being at the centre of the alleged troubled marriage of Tiwa Savage, 34, and Tunji Balogun, 36, had been making its rounds at some blogs and social media sites.

But an undisclosed source close to the tall and handsome son of Chief Folarin Coker defended him as having nothing to do with Tiwa Savage and Mavin Records.

"These reports are tissues of lies, the undisclosed insider said "Folly knows Don Jazzy and likes his music a lot. But he has no investment in Mavin Records. These things are pure lies.

"For Tiwa Savage, you cannot even say they are friends, not to talk of lovers. They don’t exchange text messages or anything.

"The story is definitely sponsored and there’s no iota of truth in it. Legal action has commenced against the fabricators of the damaging tale,'' the insider said.

Reports of the trouble in the marriage of Tiwa Savage and Tunji Balogun, who wedded on April 26, 2014 have gained grounds, but the couple have denied any hint of a hiccup in their marriage.
