    abeggi?!?! I’m your fan but your explanation reeks of set righteousness joor. like other married people who sing deeper songs don’t feel love enough to use their wives. it’s either u don’t wana pay a model, your wife may feel jealous if you use one or you at just playing the ‘its unholy to sing such strong lyrics to another woman’ game. but i still love you your songs and your voice. anyway wetin con sign vulture and barber…

      You are horrid! What stops him from wanting to sing his songs to his wife? Did he bash those who sing to models? No, so what exactly is your headache? Is he supposed to keep quiet for fear of offending those who do differently? Pls don’t skip your meds

    Yes o. Timi is wise. Building his marriage, saving money (on hiring a model or actress as love interest) and setting a great example to other artists out there who may be busy making their video characters baby mamas (uhmm…flavour (golibe); 2face (African Queen – though he eventually married her after many years. To God be the glory). Plus his wife is really pretty and imagine what those videos will do for their kids. Seeing daddy and mummy committed to each other both on & off video.

    I like Timi. We all know how fickle feelings are ‘ ‘We worked together on a music video or film and somehow we connected’ Hmnn, all of a sudden, the wife at home is no more gorgeous. Please continue to be different Timi. I will watch the videos your wife features in. This generation is used to seeing random almost naked girls in music videos and that is why your innovation feels strange. As if most of us don’t know actors and actresses whose marriages broke because they acted with someone else.

    @kikiki and @that self acclaimed ass…you have lived up to your names. the former suffering from schizophrenia and dementia the latter much more useless than your name. next time have AN OPINION with your name ON it, then you’ll know you need no psychiatrist no more.

    Its a nice one abeg. So tired seeing all the bums in other videos. Something different, not everytime use the skinny tall model, sometime use the spouse and laugh alot while at it.

    Timi is one sane and sound artist. I couldn’t help but laugh at some voices of some of the coaches on ‘The Voice Nigeria’. I doubt if any of our celebrated musicians today go fit pass audition for the show, so they use unclad girls to shift attention and autotune to complete the track.
