Enitimi AlfredOdom, popularly known as Timaya has said Innocent ‘2baba’ Idibia is the only one that can call himself a legend among the active artistes in the Nigerian music industry.
The Bayelsea vorn singer and Bam Bam crooner said this during a radio interview with SoundCity FM, adding that he wouldn’t even refer himself as a ‘legend’.
“In this part of the world, many artistes when they get to 10 years, they start shouting ‘I’m a legend’, ‘legendary’.
“To me, in this industry, the only person that can call himself a legend is 2face. The others shouldn’t. Even if people call me a legend, I don’t like to be seen like that.”
“The crown never leaves. I am Timaya anytime any day, 13 years is not three years.
“People don’t understand that making a hit song doesn’t mean you are a star. Stars always shine, some people can make a hit songand you will never hear of them again. There’s no year I’ve never dropped a hit song.
“I don’t want to be number one. I just want to be a musician. A lot of people have come and gone but I’m still here.”
