Singer/ songwriter Timaya is the cover star for Vibe.ng’s July/August issue. The singer can be seen on the cover alongside King Perryy who is signed to his DM Records.
In an interview with Vibe.ng Timaya talks about marriage, his music, style, politics among other things:
On his favorite album and song:
‘I think True Story because at that point I was really down in my life and I can remember that I barely had food to eat. But everything I spoke about in that album was a dream, a desire, the hunger’.
‘When I sang Ogologonma saying “I don get house, I don get pikin”, I never had a house, I never had a child. Those where my desires and God accomplished everything. To me it was deep. When you really need something and you keep prophesying it, it comes true’.
On his style secret:
‘I style myself. I don’t just go for the popular brands. I try to look for brands that are not really common. I just do me. If you have a stylist and the stylist tells you to put on this, and you put it on, he still needs to help you carry yourself in that outfit. When you style yourself, you carry yourself well because you know the type of character you want to get in’.
‘I’m not a marriage material. I’m not ready for that’.
‘The only reason why I may want to do politics is to have a voice, to speak a couple of things and to make things right’.
