Marriage not on my mind – Timaya
Self-acclaimed Egberipapa 1 of Bayelsa, Timaya, is not ready to make an honest woman of his ‘baby mama.’ The artiste told Saturday Beats recently that he is not getting married any time soon even though he has a daughter whom he loves very much.
The 37-year-old singer said that he is “too young” to tie the knot.
He said, “I am not yet ready to get married and anyone who is looking for that is only being deceived because I am too young to get married. Marriage is not all about money and nobody knows what I have in the bank because they are not my accountant. Musicians lie a lot, so don’t believe most of what they tell you. They are only trying to ‘package’ themselves. I am not prepared for marriage because I am not yet ready to sacrifice for any woman, I am sorry. My daughter is my life and I love her so much but marriage is not on my mind. I don’t want a situation whereby I will tell a woman I want to travel somewhere and she would be complaining.”
Talking about his sudden love for vulgar lyrics, Timaya said it is more profitable to sing such.
“I sing vulgar songs because that is what pays. It has made me richer and I am not doing it because people need to hear something good. People that complain about the vulgar song actually love it. They complained about the song but in six months, it has had 13 million views. I know I say vulgar words but I advise that it should be meaningful sometimes,” Timaya said.
