I Suffered As Plantain Seller, Now I’m Rich — Timaya

Singer, Inetimi Timaya, popularly known as Timaya, recently went down memory lane when he told fans about his rise from grass to grace.

Speaking during a performance at the Coca-Cola Urban Music Festival held at the Eko Energy City, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Saturday, Timaya said, “I used to sell plantain but now I am rich. I suffered so much as a boy but I am now a rich man. Thanks to God. If you’re here and you think you are suffering, do not give up. Keep pushing because you will surely succeed.”

Timaya was the last performer at the event which also featured other artistes including Wande Coal, Ycee, Buju, Omah Lay, Reekado Banks, Ajebo Hustlers, Cheque and Blaqbones.

The singer, who hails from Odi in Bayelsa State, is the founder of DM Records. His solo career began in 2005 with the release of the song, ‘Dem Mama’, which also appeared on his debut album, ‘True Story’ released the following year.

His works have earned him several notable awards including Headies, AFRIMMA Awards wins, One Nigeria Music Award and NEA Award.
