Nigerian dancehall star, Enitimi Alfred Odom, better known as Timaya , has described fellow musician, 2baba as a legend He explained in a recent interview that 2baba is the only Nigerian artiste who has the right to be called a legend. Timaya further revealed that he has no interest in being Nigeria’s number one musician because he just wants to make music
Dancehall star, Timaya, said in a recent interview with Sound City FM that doing music for over 10 years does not make one a legend. He even explained that he doesn’t consider himself to be a legend in the industry.
He said: “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.”
Further in the interview, Timaya revealed that he is, however, still relevant in the music industry because he drops hits every year. He said: “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 song and 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.”
