Egberi-papa one of Bayelsa, Timaya who’s enjoying the year with his buzzing songs; To U, Ah Blem Blem and the recent Bam Bam featuring YBNL Boss, Olamide, reveals what he thinks determines a hit song and also his past relationship with Runtown and Patoranking.
This revelation was made known by the “Bam Bam” crooner, during his interview with Beat FM Lagos. He talked about what makes song a hit, having to work with Runtown and Patoranking without officially signing them and also his opinion about marriage.
When he was asked about hit songs, Timaya said it only God that can tell if a song will hit or not. In his word, he stated “Nobody knows how to make hits, i don’t even know. I think it’s just God and secondly, when you work all the time, you have a lot of songs, you need the right people around you to tell you the right songs to put out so I don’t feed myself with bad energy.”
Along the interview Timaya was asked why he didn’t sign Runtown and Patoranking fully to his label when both artistes were working with him, he said; “I did not understand the business then,” Timaya said. He further stated; “I don’t want anybody to be like they are doing it because they are not in a good spot. Whatever I did for them, I did it like okay, let’s go’.”
Timaya clearly stated that there are no regrets about not giving recording contracts to Patoranking and Runtown. He said he can’t bring them back as they’re doing fine on their own “They are bosses already.”
On relationships status, Timaya admitted he is in a committed relationship and it is with his second baby mama ‘Tamar’. “I have a baby mama and a serious relationship with my son’s mom.” But further went to say he is not yet ready for Marriage because official marriage is not important. In his word… “I’m not saying I don’t want to get married. I am not ready. Jesus Christ died at 35. He never got married.”
