    it’s unfortunate how Boko Haram masked all positive things in Nigeria. First, the world economic forum, and now, African movies, academy awards.

    woooooow!!!!! I was moved to tears with that song performed by Timi. I could see the passion and I love he transfered that to his audience. That song needs more recognition and award but due to the corrupt system, its been brushed aside.
    Timi you are just wonderful

    Timi Dakolo is one of Nigerian finest… but becos he no get waist and bom songs he does not get the recognition he deserves. I met him one day and I told him what he needs is a very good song writer and he should just hang in there, it is just a matter of time

    I’ve been seeing the Apaye film around A LOT. Now that I know it’s a winner, might try it, because last year’s winner “The Meeting” didn’t disappoint.
