TeeBillz, husband to pop star, Tiwa Savage, has said God saved him from taking his life, so he could help others who were in the same situation.
TeeBillz had attempted to jump into the Lagos lagoon, while he was experiencing crisis in his marriage, but was saved by Banky W and Peter of P-Square.
In an interview with the Punch, he said the experience is helping him assist others going through the same situation.
“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,” TeeBillz said.
